Awsome analogy, I understand now. thanks bro :tuSuperAkuma said:RMS is how much the speakers can handle constaintly, this is the most important one. Peak/Max is how much it can handle in a quick burst like when the bass hits.
Think of it like lifting weights. RMS is like how much you can lift in a set. Lets say you can lift 80lbs in a set of 10 times each set. Peak/Max is how much you can lift one time only like whats the most you can lift.
100% WRONG WRONG WRONG!98civic4door said:as far as Head Unit's and amps go-Peak = a burst of power which comes in a sudden bass hit,high note or what ever.The rms provided by a Head Unit/Amp is the all the time power.
RMS = What you get 90% of the time
Peak = What you get 10% of the time
