My current amp, the RF Power 1000, 5ch (my baby ) has an LED clipping indicator for each of its 5ch's located on the front (top) panel. And where I have it mounted (on the back, false wall, of my Supercab F150) I can, and always do, look over my right shoulder, to monitor my power output, often trying to adjust all 5 ch to where they are just below the slightest red flicker > Or in other words, max output, with minimum distortion.
Now, I know at some point down the road, I will have to do away with my Power 1000, for a bigger amp. But I really don't know of another amp, which has such a cool clipping indicator, located in such a perfect spot for my uses ?
So, the $10K question is > Is their a way to have some sort of inline indicators, for each of your amp channels, maybe which could even be located on your dash ??? Oh, and if so, "in what lines" ? Speakers outputs ?
Geeez, I'm just so spoiled with being able to so closely monitor my power outputs, that I'd be freaking completely screwed up without it !
PS, It might be a little rigged / funky, but most amps do at least have a single little red clipping indicator on one ond, or the other. Could that be tapped off of, straight from the amp, to some very light gage wire, then ran to an LED in the dash ???
