Variac Vs Bulb Limiter newb question


2008-01-31 9:01 pm
I recently purchased my first chip amp kit from and I've been learning a lot here. I've read that a light bulb limiter should be used when powering up an amp for the first time and I'm wondering if I can use my Variac instead. Will I achieve the same results or must I use a bulb limiter?

Thanks in advance.
