  • How do I calculate guitar amp output power


    I am new here, and would like to build my first tube amp. I have electronics background and fabrication skills from my day job, but I am trying to learn specifically about tube amps. My question is, how did Fender come up with "22Watts" for my Fender Deluxe Reverb R.I.? I have been reading "Beginners guide to Tube Audio Design," and feel I am getting close, but still confused. I know it's complicated (or I'm making it so), so I was just hoping someone could send me a link to some more reading on the subject. I am learning about O.T. impedance matching and so on, just need more info.

    Thanks for any help!
