Let me start by saying that I'm not an expert, anything and everything in this post should be considered incorrect and I'm asking a question about something that I recently heard that I've been thinking about and have been trying to research but I don't have the background to say there's something there or shoot it down. That said, what I heard was that the peak power rating on a class D amp is more applicable as a rating than RMS than on a class AB amp because of the faster power ramping on a class D amp. I don't have the engineering background to understand fully and intimately what the ratings mean. Without that, at face value it maybe makes sense that if my (well designed) class D amp can reliably hit peak power, then maybe that becomes a better rating for the amp than RMS? I hit this looking at the rating for Trickfish Bullhead 1K which isn't listed as RMS and I'm trying to figure out what the real rating for the amp is. And then what do I really mean by "real rating". Nobody from Trickfish made the claim of peak vs RMS, don't want to start that rumor.
