Default What are the 12v rating for DC amps?

I just acquired a DC 3.5k amp on a trade.
I noticed on the site they are rated at 14.4v, 16v, and 18v.

If you had to guess, what would the 12v rating be for the DC 3.5k?

There's no way they put out 3.5k at 12v because them they would rate them at 12v because that looks so much better and unless this amp puts out 4000-4200 at 14.4v then it doesn't do it...don't get me wrong this amp is SEX and I would take it in a heart beat but them rating at 14.4 is the only thing I don't like about DC amps...love everything else about dc though nice score lol
