But no again. You're math is all good on paper, but you have no idea what class circuitry I am running, or what amp alt's I am mounting. None of my amps draw wattage... instead, amperes that they convert to wattage. And no, there is no constant 13.6 volts because the regulators on the alt's are reg'ed @ 12v+ ... 80% efficiency AHAHhahhahah I wish. Also, the measurements of what you call "real" assume that I am using an unregulated power supply on my amps. Not the case; they are regulated and rated to produce @12v. The bridge woudln't even see a .2 spike in voltage due to reg.
You are on the right track about efficiency tho. Some amps are definately not as efficient as they say. Hence some amps would have a much higher rating for its fuses which protect the circuitry Remember this, no matter if it's a toaster or a 5kilowatt lanyard, they all suck amps. Amp ratings are always device specific. thanks for help
