Itech5000HD average power adjustment

I need to limit the power (watts) out of both channels to 1000w (@8ohms) per side.
I have four original series Itechs and was able to do this from the front panel encoders.
Reading the manual I see that I can limit the Volts but not the actual watts.
How do I go about limiting the watts?
Is there is a conversion table somewhere that translated volts to watts (@8ohms)?
Please advise.

Mike

    FWIW: I posed the same question on this forum in November 2020 (check the history) and never received a response from anyone (including Crown)........

    I don't think Crown watches this forum anymore... since moving to Mexico.
    What you need to do is convert the volts to watts using Ohms law: From the internet: "The formula is (W)/(A) =(V). For example, if you have a power of 10W with a current of 2A the voltage is 10W / 2A = 5V. This comes from the equation V = P / I. Where P is the power in Watts, I is the current in Amps and V is the voltage in Volts."

    In amplifiers, the use/term of watts is not actually correct. Amplifiers produce/amplify voltage... not watts. Figure what the voltage is from the watts... and you can limit the amp accordingly.
