What are the ac power draws for Macro-Tech 1200 & Macro-Tech 2400?

We are working in a club which has several of these that were installed by a non-technical person and want to make sure that we have adequate power and circuit protection in place.  Any help is appreciated.

Like with any amplifier that will vary depending on the load and the duty cycle of the signal source. Power draw sheets for the MA1200/1202 are available on our web site at: http://www.crownaudio.com/pdf/amps/131508.pdf and the Power Draw sheet for the MA2400/2402 is available at: http://www.crownaudio.com/pdf/amps/131509.pdf From these data sheets you will see that the worst case in live application would be a 2-ohm stereo load with highly compressed Hard Rock Music. In this case the MA1200/02 will draw about 9.5 amps (950 watts) and the MA2400/02 will draw about 14.4 amps (1445  watts). smile.gif
