So im pretty amp-retarded, i have a crate Gx-30m and most of the product reviews on this amp say its 30 watts, but on the back of the amp on the sticker (with the serial number n such) it says it is a 115 watt.

so im simply confused as to how many watts it is, 30 or 115?

Well it's 30 watt.

The 115 watt sticker means that it's operating in 115v.

agreed w/gabel. 115watt on the back is the power required (DC - direct current) of the amp. it has nothing to do with how many watts the amp produces to make sound.

my friend from high school (whew, long time ago) tried to convince me his amp was 500w. i laughed hard.

it's 30 watts.

as gabe says, if it just says 115, that could be the voltage; alternatively, if it says 115 watts, that could be the power consumption (not the output).

either way you were gipped, my commiserations.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
