I made a little post about this last week just as a "feeler", to see if you guys would be interested in a product that can help you detect clipped signals and properly set up your system gains/max volume on deck etc. I know a lot of people dont wanna break off $300 or more on even the cheapest O-scope so this will be a handy little tool, for a decent price.

*****PROTO PICS DONT JUDGE THEM YET! *****

It is in prototype stage for now and i will let you know when it is going to be available. We are shooting to make this very affordable yet DEAD ON ACCURATE with o-scopes that cost even thousands of dollars. Every installer needs to know how high the deck, then processor and finally the amp can go before it clips. Either you are hurting your system and dont know it or you are LEAVING POWER ON THE TABLE and dont know it....

i will have video's of how this works up soon, check back here! i will post them up. Early testing, ON VIDEO, looks VERY promising!

I am working with the MAN himself Tony D, the inventor of the RF T15k on this so you KNOW it wont be junk!

**FYI** the two probes do NOT go in the traditional spot that an O-scopes leads would go. Its a little different. Stay tuned, you will see!

EDIT: THESE PICS WERE ADDED TO THE ORIGINAL POST SO THEY ARE EASIER TO FIND -

If this is affordable and really simple to use I would probably get one.

Ive occasionally wondered when something like this would come out. It appears this would be more of a tuning tool than something you could leave hooked up all the time in case you came across a clipped song etc?

this is a tool for setting your system up for maximum sound, minimum distortion. If you still choose to amplify a song that is clipped from the beginning, then i dont know what to tell you other then dont do that LOL. BUT, that being said, all you guys who over-analyze a CD you got at the store, and find a little clipping in the song, are really splitting hairs. Its funny to me that some people will panic over that but wont go buy an o-scope and set the gains properly. With this product, you wont have to.

To finish answering your question, the amp will probably do exactly what its suppposed to do and that is AMPLIFY whatever it is you told it to amplify.....the best you can do is avoid it. A little clipping in the song isnt going to hurt anything IMO - a LOT of clipping from an AMP gains being set improperly CAN hurt though.
