If you put a square wave instead of a sine wave for the input and
measure the output power of a amplifer it doubles i think

RMS square wave output power
Peak output power

That's correct. Only if the peak-to-peak voltages are the same.

Yea same Peak to Peak voltage the square wave has more AREA i think
than the sine wave so you get more output peak power
