Here’s the simple truth, all other things being equal: Any appliance, given a specified current draw, will draw half the wattage at twice the voltage. (It goes without saying that its power supply would be correct for the voltage it’s supplied.) It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about an amplifier or a refrigerator.

Example: If we have an amplifier rated for 100 watt output and it draws 1,000 watts at 120VAC, then it will draw 500 watts at 240VAC. Of course, it's power transformer will need replacement or rewiring to accommodate the change in voltage. And of course the power cord will need to be changed to have the proper connector for the 240VAC service. But none of that changes the simple fact that changing the service voltage has no affect on current draw, which is watts x volts. And it will produce its rated output either way.

That would be assuming the identical piece of equipment being used at 110V and 240V, whereas the equipment would be built for the particular voltage being used, so both pieces of equipment would be different so they produce the same Wattage output.You’re incredibly confused, and now you seem to be confusing line voltage with rated power output.
