Just curious-looking at your basic powered mixers for roughly the same money you can get a Peavey, Yamaha,or Behringer-but the Peavey and Yamaha's show roughly half the output power as the Behringers. What gives? Seems like the Behringers are overpowered for where his mixers are typically used anyway?
It all depends on how you calculate "watts".Generally it is RMS reading of a sine wave voltage into a particular load impedance.HOWEVER if you get "creative" you can "figure" using the peak of the voltage waveform instead of the RMS-and THEN you can double that to get the Peak to peak.So a 20V RMS into an 8 ohm load is 50 watts real.But if you use the calculation above you get 400 watts.Then if you just "throw in" 6dB for a peak that who knows where it comes from (like some loudspeaker manufacturers do) you get 1600 watts out of a real 50 watt amp.SEE-simple marketing-----------------------------And if people are comparing its actual output to others in the same price range-they get the same result and nobody is the wiser-----------And then they wonder why those "big amp companies" are trying to "rip them off".I guess as long as you hook them up to speakers in the same price category-you will have a good "match".
Those little Peavey heads are built like a brick shithouse
