Clean QSC power and the reliability working musicians need.
The PLX3102 power amplifier is an excellent choice for users who need to drive up to four loudspeakers from each amplifier channel (2-ohm loading), or when extremely high power bridged mono operation is required. Features built-in subwoofer processing, filter switches, and front panel indications of bridged mono status.
The PLX3102 power amp has a solid, cast-aluminum front panel that adds professional style to any rack while also acting as an integral I-beam, rigidly tying the chassis together for years of on-the-road reliability.
Additional mechanical touches such as the side stiffening rails, rear rack ears and cable tie anchor points attest to QSC's years of experience and attention to detail. QSC has even designed the integrated front handles so the amplifier slides into a rack without scraping your fingers on the rack sides.
PowerLight switchmode technology replaces a large, heavy AC transformer (typically 20 lbs.) with a highly efficient and lighter-weight active design. Conventional AC transformers provide 100 or 120 energy pulses per second; the PowerLight supply delivers 190,000 to 230,000 pulses per second. More pulses make it easier to provide on-demand power for the amplifier's output section. The power supply doesn't sag so bass notes stay full and powerful while the high end remains crisp and clean.
PLX2 audio power circuitry achieves performance normally associated with studio reference amplifiers. In order to reduce crossover distortion, precision bias tracking makes minute adjustments as amplifier temperature changes. The benefit is cleaner high-frequency and more consistent sound no matter how hard the amplifier is driven.

Comments about QSC PLX3102 Professional Power Amplifier:
I love this amp. The lights on the front allow me to know if it's running in bridged or parallel mode which is nice compared to a dip-switch or small switch that has no other indicator other then the sound.I purchased this to replace a blown channel Crown 802D which was about 1/3 of the price as this amp. We are running 2 Mackie s410s subs and it is eating up the Crown amps running bridged into each speaker... The last show we lost a Crown completely (just went dead with no lights or anything). So we used this amp bridged and parelled and it worked great!
