Auto amp Specs question for power

When reading auto amp specs for power should you believe the 14.5 Volt output rating or the 12.5 Volt rating for real world power. Also is the class of amp relevant ? Does a class AB amp and a class D amp with the same or close power rating perform the same? Are there any articles on this anywhere.
Also is a distortion spec of 1 % at rated power significant.

I remember being impressed by the JL Slash Specs as it maintained power across the full Spectrum. (to 20k)
