    What you guys think about this line driver:

    I am just wondering what you guys think about Soundgate AVM4 4ch line driver.

    Seems a bit weak for the price 5v Max. Output. For a few bucks more (or same if you get used) you can get a 6-channel AudioControl line driver that is, IIRC, 7 or 8v RMS output.

    I second the vote for the AC line driver.

    Thanks guys for your responses. Sorry for a newbie question but what does IIRC and RMS stand for?

    RMS = Root Means Squared
    It's the physics formula that calculates constant power output.

    IIRC = If I Recall Correctly (http://www.acronymfinder.com/af-quer...irc&Find=Find).

    RMS = Root Means Squrare (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_mean_square).

    Basially, AC voltage is represented in 1 of 3 possible ways: Peak (0V to MaxV), Peak to Peak (MinV to MaxV), and RMS. RMS voltage is the value you most want to look for. If it doesn't specifically state Vrms or something llike that, then most likely it is Peak or Peak to Peak.

    To convert from peak to RMS all you do is:

    RMS = Peak * 0.707

    Just a little if what I remember from my electronics classes in theory, it's correct
