Well, my new amp arrived today thanks to my wife. It is a Crown XS 700, one of the new line of amps from Crown. It is basically a clone of the QSC PLX series. This thing if incredible. It barely fits in my SKB case length wise(15.675"), but I gain an extra rack space due to it's low profile(2 rack spaces).I hooked it up and was blown away. First of all, it is very loud!I have it hooked up in stereo to my Ampeg BXT 410(4 ohms), and SWR goliath III(8 ohms).It puts out 900 watts @ 2 ohms,750 watts @ 4 ohms, and 450 watts @ 8 ohms in stereo. In bridge it puts out 1900 watts @ 4 ohms and 1645 watts @ 8 ohms. Every note is very defined and crisp. The fan is a little noisy, but you can't hear it while playing.On the front panel there are LED lights for AC main power, power on/off, fault,bridge mode, and temperature along with a volume knob for each channel.The back has 1/4", XLR and phoenix style input connectors. The outputs are speakon and 5 way binding posts. Although I have not tried QSC,I think that this is one of the better amps on the market today. Now I need to get some earplugs.
