the big friend just send me this things as christmas gift DeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDeadDead
 I've at least 10 or 12 of these modules, nothing write upon it apart the xxxl's logo they should works, but i cant quote how much power etc.

These were given to me as a Christmas present by a friend. Please supply info like power rating, manufacturer and any other data......

But more than give me infos that i think nobody know, i'd like a tip about if its a wasting of time convert these "active" modules as power amps in a box or something like that.

no idea who made them etc. how many have you? looks like you have at least one mono sub module and 2 for tops. why not ask your friend what speakers they came out of? and why.

It looks like a plate amp from a sub (Satellite Outs). I just had a look at the website but couldn´t find anything similar on there. They only seem to have one sub and the amp on that is different.

Maybe post some photos of the other side, ie the power module and someone can have a guess.

manufacturer is closed years ago. 
site is running but looks so old... the friend that give you rubbish isnt such big friend :)
he dont know anything apart that are brand new... 

i got something like 8 of big modulese and 4 of the small one.  
some more simple question:
 - how can i measure power out? i know that is almost impossible without expensive gear.... 
-if they have a proper output can i add a stage output with speakon etc and rack them?

If you read the 'Company' tab on 'www.xxlinside.com' you will see that they are owned by 'Mogar Music S.p.A' and they are still up and running; the website was last updated on Jan 1st... give them an email and maybe they can help you.

"- how can i measure power out? i know that is almost impossible without expensive gear.... "

You can get a 'ballpark' figure with an oscilloscope, multimeter, signal generator and dummy load - or even a 'non-dummy' load, ie a speaker.

Test the sub plates at 80/90Hz and the others at the 'standard' 1000Hz.

Monitor the voltage on the output with the multimeter (AC voltage range) and the oscilloscope. Note the voltage just before clip.

Then Power = (Voltage)² / Resistance.     EDIT: That´s (Voltage) squared.

Simple.

Simple.








Should he not be using a true RMS meter?

True RMS meters are only really needed if measuring non-sinusoidal, or distorted waveforms. A 'normal' meter will be perfectly accurate for a pure, or near pure sinusoid.
