1 W = 1 J/s 4190 J = 1 kcal 1200 J/s * 1 kcal/4190 J =0.286 kcal/s =17 kcal/min. Aren't you glad you don't have to run that hair dryer by pedaling a bicycle?

The heat produced by a 1200-W hair dryer can be converted to kilocalories by multiplying the power in watts by the conversion factor of 0.001 kcal/s per watt. Therefore, 1200 W hair dryer would produce 1.2 kilocalories of heat each second.

### How bright is 1200 lumens?

It depends on the type of light bulb used. An incandescent that consumes 1200w will produce less lumens than a fluorescent that consumes the same 1200w. 1200 x 1w LEDs on a big board will produce more lumens than the fluorescent.

### How much current does a 120v 1200w hair dryer draw?

Using the formula Power = Voltage x Current, you can rearrange to solve for current: Current = Power / Voltage. Plugging in the values, the hair dryer would draw 10 amps of current (1200W / 120V).

### What bags are used with the Shark Plus Euro-Pro 1200W vacuum cleaner?

Bags made for any canister vacuums will work with the Shark Plus Euro-Pro 1200W. Check out the related link below for an example of these bags.

### Can you run a 15 sub with a 1200watt amp with a 10g power cable?

1200W on 10g cable would not be reccomended.. You will most likely have problems with the amp not getting enough power and shutting itself down.. At 1200W you would most likely be looking at 4g or bigger.

### Would a 2channel amp 1400w work with two 1200w subs?

no it will not and do not try that i almost got electrocuted from it

### What watt amplifier will power a 1200 watt subwoofer?

1200W is the either the MAXIMUM power that a passive subwoofer (driver only) can HANDLE or the power rating of the amplifier on an active subwoofer (amp built-in). If passive, you can use pretty much any amplifier as long as it's 1200W or under. You can even use an amp that is &gt; 1200W -- you just can't push it past 1200W or you risk damaging your sub. The relative loudness at a given dial on the volume knob is dependent on the sensitivity of the sub (measured in dB). Also bear in mind that power varies with resistance so an amp that pushes 1200W @ 4 ohm will not be able to deliver 1200W to an 8 ohm speaker -- often times it can only deliver 1/2 the power (i.e. 600W @ 8 ohm in this case). If active, well the sub already has an amp so you just need to feed it a line-level or speaker-level signal. Either way if you're talking about your car or home I guarantee you won't be pushing ANYWHERE near 1200W -- that's window-shattering, deafening loud. Just to put things into perspective, I use an amp that's rated at 10 W into 8 ohms and never turn the volume dial past 1 or 2 o'clock, which means the amp is never delivering more than maybe 6 or 7 watts. If you can get remotely close to 1200W that means the amp is so inefficient that it'll probably be melting and/or burning down your house/car at that point.

### Will an SSL EV3000D amp power a Fi BL18 I know it's cheap and I don't care it has to at least handle 3000 maximum power at 1 ohm?

The EV3000D will produce 1200W RMS at 4 ohm. It does not say what the RMS is at 1 ohm, but maximum power output is 3000W. RMS will be substantially lower, but no lower than 1200W (RMS is the more accurate figure to consider, and the higher the better). It is a cheap amp and few people have anything good to say about it. But as the previous poster says, it must produce at least 800W RMS to power the Fi BL18, and it certainly meets that criteria and then some. And at the end of the day, no-one can tell the difference in a blind test. It's just snobbery that clouds their vision.You need at least 800W of CLEAN power to properly run an Fi BL18.
