DCM3800L Amp draw

Postby artmantommie » Tue Apr 10, 2018 7:20 pm

Hi i purchased 4 dcm3800l power amps prior to carvin closing, at the time i was in contact with carvin i could remember the minimum circuit load per amp, because they told me. unfortunately i now cant remember can the amp run on a 20 amp breaker or is it 30 amp breaker. i have a event coming up on friday and i need to know before i do mt load in.

I found this: dcml series owners manual

Apparently it has a 25Amp fuse. So it should not be able to draw more than 25 amps. The 30 amp breaker is probably recommended.
