    I'm refering to the Ashdown Mag200. I'm thinking about getting one. Any thoughts on the head? Is it loud enough? What does the whole peaking mean? Sorry for the overkill on Ashdown
  2. When talking about sine wave power, the RMS value is the best indicator. That would be 200 Watts in your question. A sine wave that gives an RMS value of 200 Watts will have a peak of 400 Watts. No big deal, though. Every 200 Watt RMS amp has peaks of 400 Watts. That's just how the math works out.
