Default HHAMD-1 testing a Sundown SAZ 3000D

This test was done using the new HHAMD-1 unit from Vital Power Inc. This unit measures the actual RMS of the amp, impedance rise, voltage drop, AC voltage. We tested out a Sundown SAZ 3000D, wired to 1 Ohm to a pair of Sundown 12" subs. Instead of having to use several clamp meters and a calculator to find out the true power output of the amp, this unit will figure it all out for us. It figures in the efficiency of the system, so you see the real output.

This unit was a prototype, so nothings posted yet on this mobile unit. But, they do have the same one available for more of a permanent install in your ride. Got a couple guys in my area looking to get one for testing for the next competition season. Check out their website for the pricing and details.

So it HH for hand held I would assume? Since the regular is AMD. IIRC they run 299 with the case and everything.

I think it's probably because that sub is not moving enough to allow it to cool.. Id turn the gain up a bit so it moves more for cooling reasons.. That's why it's hard on subs to be underpowered..

Correct, the HHAMD is the portable model, great for those of us the run SPL comps and want to test amps in the lanes and to verify competitors are in the right power classes. Can be great for shops as well, but I wouldn't recommend it. Customers will get butt hurt when they see their 2k amp isn't really putting out 2k, lol.

Questions...

So the little sensor block - does it open on one end so you can place it around the speaker wires - or do you have to disconnect the speaker wires - run it through the ring, and reconnect?

Second, how quickly does this device read the power? Looks like there's a bit of a delay (I counted about a second and a half)...

Third - does this meter account for power factor - or is it simply multiplying voltage and amperage?
