        Comments about Peavey CS 4080HZ Power Amplifier:

        I have been using Peavey sound reinforcement for nearly 20 years now. Starting back in the 90s with a rack full of old 70s CS800s and a few SP Series speakers to this very day now running a rack full of CS4080s and a QW rig.

        I have never EVER had a lick of trouble with any of the many CS Series amps I have owned, no matter the year of the amp.

        The new CS Series amps seem to be built every bit as tough as the old 70s tanks. While they are quite heavy, they are worth their weight in sound and power.

        We have used these amps for outdoor street festivals and had excellent results. When properly supplied with AC, these babies work wonders.

        I would suggest these amps to anyone, any day, anywhere.

        Big Power

        By VirtuRock Productions

        from Sheboygan, WI

        Comments about Peavey CS 4080HZ Power Amplifier:

        I have owned this amp for about a year now and although it pushes some heat, it has always performed perfectly. I use it on a pair of SP6's and when pushed to about 80% like the other guy, you can hear everything 2 miles away. I pull people from bars all around the neighborhood! This thing is heavy, but I have tested the electronics when people drop the mic etc. and it has saved from wrecking the mains many times. It costs some ching but it's solid gear.

        Pure Power

        Comments about Peavey CS 4080HZ Power Amplifier:

        I have 4 of these. This is the most powerful and cleanest amp I've ever heard. Just to get an idea of how far these things can go, I set my stuff up outside. The music was crystal clear 2 miles away!Just remember that you CAN NOT load these things with less than 4 ohms.

        Peavey...

        By Martin DeFrance

        from Jackson, Ms

        Comments about Peavey CS 4080HZ Power Amplifier:

        I bought this amp a couple of months ago from a local music shop. When I got home and started to push it about 1/2-3/4 of the way up it started to clip and get hot, yet my other amps where fine. I messed with my gain structure and everything, but still the same reaction from the amp. I was using it a couple of weeks later at a fairly large gig, and the A channel stopped working. I then sent it back to Peavey to get it fixed. Almost a month later it finally comes back. It seemed fine, so I decided to use it at a show 2 days later. Guess what happens... it explodes 30 minutes before the show. I'm not exaggerating; it actually lit up and smoke came out of it. I just got it back this week so we'll see what troubles I get in the future. I definitely don't recommend Peavey live sound products for anything. Suck it up and buy a better quality more expensive amp. You will not regret it.

        The CS4080's Are Beasts!

        By SoundMan-NqgBi

        from Central Illinois

        Comments about Peavey CS 4080HZ Power Amplifier:

        I own four of the CS4080 power amps and I have been very pleased with them. This amp outperforms any other amp in its price range. I have never had any problems with them at all. As far as the person who posted saying about them getting too hot and shutting down - that would only happen if the amps were improperly connected. I have ran mine for more than six hours straight at full volume and they performed flawlessly.

        Comments about Peavey CS 4080HZ Power Amplifier:

        I purchased 4 of these amps to push 4 QW218s and the mids in 4 VR112 boxes. All 4 have performed well.I have yet to engaged the DDT on either of the amps. Great product, clean power!

        Overrated

        By BillSound

        from Portland, TX

        Comments about Peavey CS 4080HZ Power Amplifier:

        I own 2 CS4080HZ's and purchased them based upon their power ratings at 4 ohms(2040 watts per channel) and the superior quality measured by low distortion rates. I used the Peavey amps for my mids/highs and Crown amps for my subs. The system was being pushed hard due to a larger than expected crowd and the Peavey amps overheated and shutdown during performance. I went over to the amp racks to correct the problem and discovered the Peavey amps were very hot, but the Crown amps were not even warm while being pushed just as hard. We had to lower the levels and put a fan on the Peavey amps for the remainder of the night.Due to my experience, I will never trust a Peavey amp in a big show and will shift the usage of my Peavey amps to my smaller shows.In summary, I wish I would have bought Crown amps instead of Peavey, so I would be in a position to use the same amps for any show and have the ability to combine resources for the big shows. However, I have already purchased the Peavey amps and am limited to their usage and can not include them among my resources for a big show, unless I use them in a capacity far below their specifications. In other words, compared to a Crown amplifier, they are "overrated"
