ok guys i have a vox ad50vt, it sounds pretty sweet and loud as all hell but it says its 50w rms but the thing only consumes 52 watts!! im not sure how they power 2 pre and 2 power sections plus effects moddeling, and an onboard fan with only a 2w loss, could someone explain this to me????
usually means it consumes 50w
i think
so the more watts the amp is
the more wattage it uses foo
energy conserving components?

The amp itself dissipates 50w.

Effects modeling probably doesn't dissipate much power at all. Neither do fans.
I think you're confusing efficiency with power.
Lets say an amplifier dissipates 50w. But if it only has 80% efficiency, it's costing you 62.5w on your power bill. It still dissipates 50w, not 40w.
ok but this would have a lot higher efficency to only loose 50w in the amplifying process right??
