Power Rating

I have a RF T3002 amp. On the box it says its rated at [email protected] But on the birth sheet it says [email protected]

I know these amps are supposed to be underrated, but that is 3.5 times more power!!!

So i want to know, which number is right, 200 or 695? And why is it rated 200 if it is actually 695?

MAX power ratings are unrealistic in real life.

Maybe they got that much, on a one time spike, under lab conditions using all the tricks and cheats possible.

ONLY read RMS, power bandwidth, preferably CEA rated. Ignore everything else.
