OVERVIEW

Amazing performance without the weight.

Featuring the same pro features as the rest of PLX2 Series power amps and plenty of punch. But the PLX1804 comes at a friendlier price for those who don't need bridged or 2-ohm operation. Designed to power one or 2 speakers from each amplifier channel (4 ohm minimum loading) it offers a simplified feature set while retaining genuine, uncompromised PLX performance and technology. Weighing just 13 pounds this "plug-and-play" amplifier is perfect for ultraportable rigs, as well as reference-quality playback.

Very lightweight. Advanced cooling with flow-through heat sinks and front exhaust; front-panel LED power, clip, -10dB, and signal present indicators; Speakon outs; 21-position front-panel gain controls; balanced XLR inputs with TRS connectors; and patented PowerLight power supply technology combine to make the PLX1804 one of the most versatile andpower amp available.

Clip limiting protects speakers while thermal limiting maintains operation even during abnormal overloads.

900W/ch @ 4 ohms, 600W/ch @ 8 ohms.

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    Picked up the QSC PLX1804 a few months ago. Very happy with this amp. Plenty of power for our small country band. Did a few gigs with it and it never even got warm. And the lighter weight is a nice factor. I mounted this amp into a roadrunner 2U case and Mated it with a Mackie ProFX12 mixer, making a nice two piece system plenty light enough for me to carry. This amp should last a long time!

    Great Amp

    By Brook Fowler

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    I bought the QSC PLX1804 to use with two SRX712M JBL stage monitors. This is my second QSC amp and the only type of amp that I will ever buy. I had Crowns and Mackies before, not bad, but not QSC. They are light, powerful, durable, insanely clear, include proper connection options for my use and on and on. I love it. Oh, and by the way, I had to call in this time because I had trouble with a coupon code and the MF guy on the call was great! Very helpful and took my coupon code even though the web site had dis-allowed its use. I really hate calling in to most places due to sales tactics and, usually un-qualified (sorry for this) morons, on the line but I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks.

    Treat yourself

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    This is a fine power amp. I have had it in my rack for 3 years and average 200 shows per year. To be honest I do not think about it. I turn it on and it works. It is extremely light very clean and quiet. Thanks QSC for making this product.

    DO THE MATH

    By Eureka Theater

    from Eureka, CA

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    Unless you are a DJ with no money you will never run your system at 2 ohms. Without the ability to run at 2 ohms you will notice that with this amp you will get a lot more power at 4 and 8 ohms than an amp rated for 2 ohms. I own 1 RMX 1400 watt amp and find it OK but is not as musical as my ancient 1400 watt Mackies or the PLX. I have 3 of these and I'm very happy with them.

    Works Great

    By zydecod

    from SF, Ca.

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    Bought this a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't be happier..Have been using different RMXs over the years and have been perfectly happy using them. Only problem is they are heavier than I can lift and I'm doing more gigs that requires moving and lifting so this amp is perfect. Have used it and tried to really push it, and no overheating, clipping, or redlining whatsoever..For someone like me who needs power, the light weight, the simplicity of hookup, plus the QSC reliability that I've come to expect after using their amps for over 10 years now, this amp is the bomb..Thanks QSC, from an older sound guy..

    Awesome product!

    By WorkingSoundGuy

    from Seattle

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    I replaced all my QSC RMX amps with this amp. My amp rack went from 160 lbs to 52lbs!! My band thanks me... They sound awesome and work hard. I don't need 2 ohm bridging for anything so I don't miss it. I think these are really a great solution for the mobile DJ or band. 900 watts a channel (x2) is lot in a 13lb package.

    Great Amp

    By Kevin-BYckX

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    I've used these for numerous outdoor shows, being lightweight they are simple to move gig to gig, and the heat and humidity seem to have no effect on the performance of these amps, if you have the money, BUY THEM!! you wont regret it.

    a 12lb monster

    By blues guy-xnRIv

    from Camas, WA

    Comments about QSC PLX1804 Lightweight Professional Power Amplifier:

    Got this about a month ago and am i ever pleased. The "04" line cuts out a few features (low/high pass capability) and of course, you can't run them at 2 ohms. But my oh my, what a powerhouse at just 12 lbs.very pleased.
