Default New 12k Clamp test.

I just got done testing the 12k in 2 different applications.


The first test was done in the Mini Van with 4 XL 18s and 4 D3100s starting voltage 14.2.

The second test was done in my truck with 6 Level 3 15s and 5 D1400s starting voltage 15.4.



Van results: Starting ohm load is 1 ohm bridged

30hz- 49A x 141.7v= 6943.3 watts @ 2.89 ohms

35hz- 39.89a x 144v= 5744.16 watts @ 3.6 ohms

40hz- 46.8a x 137.8v= 6449 watts @ 2.94 ohms

45hz- 47.3a x 137.4v= 6499 watts @ 2.90 ohms


12k Rated power

1 ohm bridged 12v- 8400 watts
1 ohm bridged 14.4v- 11000 watts
1 ohm bridged 16v- 13000 watts
2 ohms bridged 14.4v- 6800 watts
4 ohms bridged 14.4v- 4200 watts
8 ohms bridged 14.4v- 2400 watts



Now for all of you that hate on those results saying "Im paying for 12000 watts but im not getting it so I am going to be an ass and flame the results"


This second test was done in my truck running 6 Level 3 15s starting ohm load of .67 bridged. Voltage started at 15.4 and dropped to 12.5.

30hz- 97a x 117v= 11349w @ 1.21 ohms

35hz- 95.2a x 123v= 11710w @ 1.29 ohms

40hz- 86a x 129v= 11094w @ 1.5 ohms

45hz- 78.2a x 134v= 10478w @ 1.71 ohms



I believe this is proof for all of those that hated on my original clamp numbers that the 12k is well worth the money you pay because it does well over rated power.

Yeah, finally some good clamped numbers from DC amplifiers.
Lol, I found them to be quite pitiful earlier.

Good stuff mang.
Are those peak power output numbers or where output settled?

These are the peak output numbers. I dont find any of the clamp tests I have done to be pitiful at all. You have to look at the rated power of an amplifier.

BOX RISE EFFECTS THE POWER YOUR AMP PUTS OUT. You can see that I have much less rise in my truck which allows me to get more power from the amp.

Like i've explained in another thread, amps clamp ROUGHLY half when you wire them normally to their nominal rated load. All amps are like this, if you want 12k clamped then it takes a final 1 ohm load after impedance rise/reactance.

Do you think its not as risky to wire below 1ohm as its made out to be?

Perfect perfect says he's wiring his dc 12k at .125 per channel iirc (defently not advised)... I wonder what he'd clamp if he had more electrical.

Got much lower out of my buddies 12k.....starting at 15.2 i believe... 68xx @ 1.8 ohms


So all these DC 12k numbers arent matching up........ something is quite interesting
here.....

Either someone is full of it, being as I am the only NON DC PARTY that has done a test on it.


Looking at those numbers, its not a good 12 volt amp for its said power...but cant take over 16 volts....

What was his voltage drop? Cause 6,[email protected] (you got nearly 2ohm) it's rated at 2 ohms bridged 14.4v- 6800 watts
