This amplifier is a Class A/B design which means its theoretical maximum efficiency is less that 78.5% ... therefore the maximum audio output power that can be generated with a 3450W power supply is something less than 2700W !!
In order to generate 4200W, the power supply would have to be a minimum of 5400W which is 115V@47A or 30A@180V. In fact, one table in the owner's manual states that the power requirement is 30A@200V
The only way this could be produced with the existing setup would be to strap the power transformer for 220/240V operation which I doubt very much will meet UL/CSA safety standards.
This amplifier is obviously spec'd and intended for off-shore markets.
Before you posted this, did you prepare yourself to get
yelled at for using your brain? I know that common sense
and reasoning can be contagious, but some people are
just against it.
I already pointed out inconsisent marketing data on their
other amp, in another thread, and got yelled at, in spite
that I'm just a messenger of the obvious.
Looking at Face audio marketing once more reveals another
erroneous specification across many of not all the amplifiers. [It has to be an typo because nobody would
design it that way, lol ]
I'll let this riddle float, akin to "Where's Waldo".
Not to beat the rotting dead horse, but what other
specification is not consistent between these two
