Vital Power, Inc. Releases Hand Held Amplifier Monitoring Device 1 Channel

logo_vital-powerFRESNO, CA (10.10.2013) – Vital Power, Inc., a nationwide provider of high tech devices, alternators and more, announced the debut of the World’s First and Only Hand Held Real Time and Peak Hold Audio Measuring Device. A single USA manufactured device that measures, calculates and displays up to 20,000 rms watts, woofer impedance, ac voltage, battery voltage, lowest recorded battery voltage, and box rise. Until now, it was physically impossible to measure these in real time and to measure peak you would need 3 different tools.

“After two and a half years of developing the unit for in-car installations, we now provide a hand held tool unlike any other,” said Bryan McCutchen, Vital Power, Inc. President and CEO. “Audiophiles, car audio business owners, competitors as well as competition organizations with clamped power classes will all find many beneficial uses for the HHAMD-1.”

With a few quick connections the HHAMD is ready to measure. The accuracy of the measurements is spot on and instantaneous. The durable case and bright LCD screen allow the unit to be used in almost any condition. The test leads are manufactured in the USA as well and the quality is immediately noticeable. There are so many features and multiple screens that words cannot describe what the unit can do in one paragraph.

“As a retailer, it is nice to be able to go out to a customer’s car and in a few seconds show them the actual power their amplifier is producing,” said Joe Barri, owner of 813 Customs Tampa, Florida. “Rather than give my opinion of their amplifier not being able to produce anywhere near what it says, I can now show them the facts. The HHAMD has helped my sales presentation, set me apart from the other shops and has increased the sale of honest amplifiers.”

“We never considered making a hand held version of the AMD-1 until we released the in-car model over a year ago and became flooded with requests for a hand held version,” said Steve Garone, Vital Power Engineering team.
