Question Quick question

Hey guys/girls, is there a way to tell how much amperage your amp is actually putting out, or do you only have the numbers on paper to go by? Just wondering, thanks!

Default hmm...

I gotta multimeter that can read volts,would that work?! I'm assuming then,if the multimeter would work, that I just put the red prong into a positive channel and the black prong in a negative channel and it'll tell me if I'm really puttin' out 1000RMS or not? Is it really that easy or am I just confused? Thanks for the help by the way DJ LP....

hey, i may be a little late, but if you want an amp reading, just set your DMM or VOM to the ammeter function, and take a correct amp reading by "breaking" your circuit with the meter. This means you can simply unplug whatever is in your output, place the negative probe on the negative terminal of your output, and the positive probe on whatever had been plugged in to that output. What happens is you put your meter in the circuit; it's in series with your load. Just make sure you have everything up and running when you do it. If you were to just put the positive probe in the positive output of the amp, and the negative probe in the negative output, you would measure an amp reading, but it would be false because the only resistance would be that meter. You want to read the amperage with the load of your speakers and whatever other gadgets you may have connected; that's your operational load.
