    Hi guys,
    Just trying to get some feedback about my poweramp o/m....
    It states that at each channel has a green led that flashes on the front panel if 100mV is reached.
    The question.....
    Is 100mV a too strong signal as in ' am i pushing the poweramp to hard to achieve 100mV or is 100mV in the territory for proper signal strenth ?
    I can post a copy of the o/m if needed.

    If this is a poweramp only then that would be the threshold for lighting the "signal present" LED. Meaning the minimum signal voltage, if you do live sound much and something goes quiet the signal present indicator tells you at a glance if the the fault is before or in/after the poweramp.

    That just let's you know the amp is getting a signal; there are probably red "Peak/Clip" LEDs associated with the green LEDs.

    The "clip" LEDs will tell you if you signal is too hot. Rock on. :)
