A newbie recently asked why is this Bugera 2000W amp so much cheaper and more powerful than other 500W amps? BV1001T | Head Amplifiers | Bass | Bugera | Categories | MUSIC Tribe Answer: because the manufacturer is using a "peak" watt measure and not the more usual RMS number. Nowhere are they showing on their ad they are using the "peak" number. Given that most manufacturers use RMS, shouldn't Bugera simply be making clear that this is a 2000W "peak" rating somewhere on the ad and not leaving it "buried" in the manual? What do you guys think?
