    Anyone played one of these yet?

    I have been made a deal I cant refuse on one of these. I may take it just for the deal. If I needed to I could flip it and get a smaller amp.

    Specs say

    CPX 3.0

    Delivers 3,000 watts without the use of an unsafe wall adapter (what does this mean?)
    Built-in crossover variable from 40 to 300 Hz
    Variable low-cut filter from 20 to 100 Hz
    Rated Power (4 ohms bridged) 3,000 W RMS; 1 kHz @ <0.1% T.H.D.
    Rated Power (1 x 2 ohms) 2,150 W RMS @ 1 kHz @ <0.1% T.H.D.
    Rated Power (1 x 4 ohms) 1,400 W RMS @ 1 kHz @ <0.05% T.H.D.
    Rated Power (1 x 8 ohms) 825 W RMS @ 1 kHz @ <0.05% T.H.D.
    Weight 43 lbs.
    U.S. MSRP $TBA

    Quite a bit of arse on hand though it is a Classic Lead Sled at 43 pounds. Not as heavy as the CA9 everyone adores.

    Why are the specs listed in 1x ?

    Says it is capable of putting out 3,000 watts but it puts out 2,150 @ two ohms on one side. I take it that means it would not put out 4,300 with both sides at 2 ohms per side?
