Question about Car Audio & Video
I don't have a reference in front of my of what voltage your amp should be pushing, but I can pretty much guarantee its not working if you are measuring a level in millivolts. Thats more like line-level output from your head unit. (measure your head unit as reference.)
The basic math of power is W=EI, that is Watts=Output Voltage X Output Current.
So take the maximum draw of your amps fuses (60A? 80A?) and go E=W/I or E=1200/80=15. Using this example you would expect your amp to be pushing 12-15 Volts, not millivolts.
You could always try hooking a speaker that you know works up to the amp, and an amp that you know works up to the speaker to strengthen the case for the amp being the problem.
I hope that helps.
