$229 for 3000 watts sure sounds like the deal of the century! These Timpano amps have been showing up lately online and at the prices and rated RMS power, they sure seem like interesting amps. Today we take a closer look at the TPT-3000EQ 1 ohm model. Unfortunately, the amp didn't survive the Amp Dyno tests, but what happened? Was this a fluke? Incorrect test? Bad design? Let's take a closer look and find out...

There has been a ton of talk that this test was done wrong.  People saying it's a full range amp.  So it should have been tested at 100 or so and higher.  I'm not defending this amp as I'd never use it but why maybe that's something to look into

Full range as in it can play all frequencies 40 or the 1k shouldn’t of mattered

Here are my thoughts on this. The amp is sold as a "3000 watt" amp and NO mention of mid/highs use. How many people buying these are using them for mids/highs? Probably less than 5% of buyers here in the US. If the amp is only designed for mid/high use, then you should EXPLAIN this to the consumer CLEARLY. Otherwise stuff like this is going to happen. Timpano made a follow up vid saying the Amp Dyno couldn't measure this amp properly, but they didn't get into the why. The amp puts out a lot of noise and distortion making it almost impossible to get a certified reading using this amp. They show an o'scope and say the signal is clean. You can't see THD on an o'scope and in many cases can't see clipping until it's too late. The worst thing to do here is to blame the person testing the amp. Take the data, make the amps better and let's try again. Oh yeah, maybe think about some overcurrent protection?

I 100% agree.
