A useful calculator for designing audio systems with Crown amplifiers.
+- Print Email Share Comments (2) RSS RSS

This calculator provides line loss with 2-conductor cable on a constant voltage line.

Equation used to calculate the data:

Ploss = 10 * Log [1 - ((2 * RL) / (2 * RL + (Vline squared / Prated))]

RL = (Rref / 1000) * D

D = length of wire used

Ploss = ower loss in dB

Prated = power driven on line
RL = wire guage resistance
Vline = voltage on line
