Since I was bench testing the Banda ICE 4000, I decided to pit it against some similarly sized amps. In case you missed the bench test you can review that here... My test: Banda ICE 4000
I call this test "max useable" because all I do it set them for max clean and then turn them up until they stop gaining on the meter. I record the clamp and score at the highest point regardless of clipping or distortion. Fluke meters were used for the clamping. I purposely did not use the AMM-1. Output numbers are sort of irrelevant here so they are rounded to the nearest 100w. I really only clamped to monitor things in case there was an anomaly and to verify reactives were similar between the amps.
Voltage drop is not recorded but all amps were given the same starting voltage of 14.5v on a large bank of caps.
(3) beefy 3" coils in a daily setup were used so that thermal issues were kept at a minimum. The frequency used was 50hz.
Each amp was wired to .66 nominal and each amp had similar rise to 2.4 ohms.
