Music Power vs. Honest Power
With Grommes~Precision, You Get The Precise Power You Pay For And Expect, No Less
--Franklin Park, 2001
Grommes~Precision, you get the power you pay for and expect, no less. Inflated
power output ratings are common in the audio industry, but not at
Grommes~Precision. We rate our amplifiers in real, honest continuous rms
sine-wave watts, which is the most stringent and honest power rating there is.
amplifier companies rate their amplifiers in "music power," a very
easy way to inflate power ratings. The numbers you'll get with a music power
rating can be much higher than the true continuous rms sine-wave rating that
Grommes~Precision uses. For example, an amplifier rated at 450 watts music power
would be hard pressed to put out even 250 watts of continuous rms sine-wave
power that a Grommes~Precision AXIOM
250 can pump out.
telltale spec is the rated load impedances for 25V and 70V outputs.
The 25V and 70V outputs are the "constant-voltage" outputs that P.A.
amplifiers have. The load impedance rating in ohms for the constant-voltage
outputs reveals the actual power output of an amplifier according to the power
formula: Power in watts = Volts˛/Load ohms. For example, our AXIOM
250 amplifier delivers 250 watts of continuous sine wave power into an 8 ohm
load, a 25V load, or a 70V load. A 70V 250 watt load is 20 ohms. Doing the math:
70˛/20 = 4998/20 = 250 watts. It takes a real 250 watt amplifier to put 250
real watts into a true 250 watt load. This is what we at Grommes~Precision call
honest power -- honest watts = precision power.

manufacturer states a higher load impedance than shown in this chart, then that
manufacturer is inflating it's amplifier power specs:
Which would you
prefer? Honestly rated amplifiers or inflated power rated amplifiers?
Typically, inflated power ratings = inflated prices. You think that you're
getting more bang for your buck, when in fact, generally, you get less. If you
buy from Grommes~Precision you can be ensured you are NOT paying for less power
than you are getting.
Grommes~Precision, we manufacture a full line of amplifiers, rated from 1 honest
watt (our PE-2A)
to 500 honest watts (our AXIOM
500). No inflated power specs, no inflated
prices. Plus, we back each of our manufactured products with our Assurance
Pledge: 5 Year Warranty and 30 Day Money Back
Guarantee. Get all the power your hard-earned
money pays for, get Grommes~Precision, your personal manufacturer.
