# Itech5000HD average power adjustment

**5**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.

5FWIW: I posed the same question on this forum in November 2020 (check the history) and never received a response from anyone (including Crown)........

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.
