If you know peak current and peak voltage then rms power is: Prms = Ip * Vp / 2 This power is only dumped into the fitting load R = Vp/Ip. When R gets bigger the output is voltage limited an dpower will go down. Here you can use P=V*V/R When R gets smaller the output is current limited and power will go down. Here you use P = I*I*R Note that this has nothing to do with how much power the amp will draw out of the mains. William __________________ een ooievaar is geen konijn want zijn oren zijn te klein!
