Amplifier Wattage/power Calculation

Post by EasyStreet »

Pardon my ignorance, but I am looking to display calculated (audio) amplifier power measurement along with the other measurements.
What is the correct method to achieve this?

Hi EasyStreet,

What is your reason for wanting to display the power? Is it:
  • 1/ to benefit your buying choice through personal testing?
    2/ to ensure compatibility with a specific set of speakers?
    3/ just out of curiosity?
    4/ something else?
Regards,

Hi Gerry,

sorry for bringing this one up again, but I was just looking for the same answer and was surprised this one was left unanswered, as I think is a very good question.

As to why one would want to do that - I test audio amps on daily basis and my soak testing setup is with 2204A - although I'm not after most accurate results, ability to display power measurement along other measurements would be very useful.

Is it that this feature is not available, so it wasn't answered? If so, is there any workaround to achieve this?

Your answer would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
