Default How do you tune a overrated amp?

Alright guys, we all know about how to set gains on a amp by using the squareroot method and a DMM

Example - 40watts x 4 sqrt = 12.65 , tune to that number using a DMM

But it was wondering how the hell do you do that on a overrated amp? if the amps overrated, for example hifonics, its not going to put out near the Power it says it can, so how would you set it correctly? if you set it to what it says it can put out, but really dosent, wouldent you be making the amp clip / high gains because it cant handle that number realistically?

what would you do in that situation

use an o-scope to visually set the gain.

I'm with ROE on this - you'd need an O-scope for an underrated amp. Come to think of it, you'd need an o-scope to set the gains on cheater/highly underrated amps (particularly at higher input voltages) as well.

This is a good question. If there is another method, it would be great to know the answer.
