A: Running watts are the continuous watts needed to keep items running. Starting watts, are extra watts needed for two or three seconds to start motor-driven products like a refrigerator or AC unit.

### How many volts is 1200 watts

Watts to volts doesn't translate as they are different units to measure things. Watts is a power measurement while volts is what is trickling through the cable. You could have 12 volts at 6000 watts or 240 volts and 5 watts, depends on usage. If it's for a car audio amp, it will be generally 12 volts to power it which at 1200 watts means it will run at around 100 amps current according to ohmslawcalculator.com

### How many watts per channel in a technical pro rx55uribt 1500w reciever

What is in a Watt.
Although Watt should be a dimension of power (current times Voltage) most manufactures give numbers you can't use. They always speak of maximum power. That number only can be reached in a laboratory and is measured on a clean resistor. They try the lowest resistor (not an impedance) the amplifier can work with, without blowing the end stage.
Then they put a free marge to tell you it should have a musical power of xxxx Watts. The output differs for speakers of 2 ohm, 4 ohm or 8 ohm. But there is not one speaker with an impedance over the whole audio spectrum.
Just read something over audio and power amplifiers.
The output has nothing to do with the quality of the sound. I have heard 15 Watt amplifiers perform hundred times better then some kilowatt amps.
Even if the manufacture says the amp is 1500 w it could be within legal limits and fir the amp is measured and can't deliver 100 watts of real power nobody can do a thing, because the watts could be the musical power. and that is a free invented non measurable measure. I don't even want to start over distortion, because the cheaper amps do produce more distortion, than music. If you use it for a sub woofer that is no problem, because you feel more than you hear.

Sorry for this big story and not saying what the real output is, because nowadays nobody bothers measuring amps like this.
The more serous audio magazines, will put some test about amps, and you should read one or two test to know what I mean about the worth of watts in audio.

### How do you stop generator from stalling under load

May 30, 2014 | Generac Electrical Supplies

### I have a kenmore refrig/freezer. Full load amp is 6.5 , 60 hz and 115 volts. I have a generator that will take 1100 watts with 1500 peak or surge watts. I heard that refrigerators use more electricity or...

Hello,

The calulation of max wattage is going to be 750 watts at start up and be around 500 on normal running wattage after start up so a 1100 watt generator should be fine.

### Can you connect subwolfer as well as speakers with this amp

Well, PASSIVE subwoofers ARE speakers. And this IS an amp. You could use it for a subwoofer (bridged) or two. It would also support a sub on one channel and a different speaker on the other. It's your choice what you want to drive with it.

I'd take that 4250 watts claim with a HUGE grain of salt as no distortion or bandwidth spec is included with it. If the lights in your neighborhood don't dim when you turn it on it's pulling WAY less than 4250 watts.

### I was wondering whats the min power supply unit I can use with my Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000-G Motherboard? Is a 300 watt Sufficient or will it cause problems compares to the 550 watt PSU that its currently...

By lowering the WATTS from 550 down to 300, you may find the P.C. starts shutting down or restarting, as it does not have enough power to operate everything inside the tower. You need to add up all the WATTS on the different things running on power ( i.e. Motherboard, Graphics Card, RAM, Fans, Sound Card,USB plug-ins, HDD, CD/DVD drive). You maybe not have all listed but by lowering the power might be not worth it to be honest.

### Can you hook up two 12 gauge cables to the power pack of the ML 300 RTW transformer. Power cable would run in different directions. Thank you Joe

Hello yes you can the Important thing to remember here is not to exceed the wattage that the transformer puts out.

Add up the wattage of each bulb that you are running and ensure that you do not exceed 300 watts.

for example a 300 watt transformer could drive
a. 10 - 30 watt bulbs
b. 20 - 15 watt bulbs
c 75 - 4 watt bulbs

Its also ok to mix bulb wattage for example I use 10 watt bulbs in the fixtures in the front of the house but also power 4 20watt spotlights from the same transformer.

Hope that helps

### Trying to find out what the wattage for this oven is model # MAB845SV

At the bottom of page 3 of manual (link provided below) in the "Technical Specifications" section, indicates it has 800 watts of cooking power. The 1200 watt rating is the total electrical load on the circuit that is required to run fans, lights, etc. in addition to the 800 watts for cooking.

### My generator starts and runs fine but I keep popping the breakers with tools that shouldn't pop them. this is happening on both sides

a 6250 watt generator isn't as powerful as you might think.
Here is ohms law for Alternating Current. It is different than for Direct Current

AMPS= WATTS÷(VOLTS x PF) I=P÷(E x PF) A=W÷(V x PF) WATTS= VOLTS x AMPS x PF P=E x I x PF W=V x A x PF VOLTS= WATTS÷AMPS E=P÷I V=W÷A VOLT-AMPS= VOLTS x AMPS VA=E x I VA=V x A HORSEPOWER= (V x A x EFF x PF)÷746 POWERFACTOR= INPUT WATTS÷(V x A) EFFICIENCY= (746 x HP)÷(V x A x PF)
