    Layman's terms: RMS voltage means that you get an output that matches the desired setting and can use the voltage setting to get accurate wattage calculations. Mean (average) voltage will not give you an accurate wattage calculation, and as you have found out, hits harder than RMS mode due to this inaccuracy.

    Non-Layman's terms: What is RMS?

    As it applies to VW mods. RMS = Accurate. Mean/AVG = Not accurate. IMHO...
