and holy 5h!7 it sounds amazing with my aguilar db680. my old "gig" rig was a trace elliot ah600smx. good tone, tight, decent low freq, a bit compressed sounding, but very nice. my recording rig for the past 4 or 5 years has been an aguilar db680 and a bgw power amp. the bgw was heavy and not really powerful enough, and so i just used the te for loud gigs (i record fairly medium in volume). when the trace elliot took a dive on me - user error, unfortunately - i needed to get this "Recording" rig ready for prime time. first, the bgw had to go. i've been hot for a qsc for a few years, but i couldn't justify the expense until the te took one for the team. even then, my main motivation was weight - as long as it sounded decent and was acceptably loud, i wanted something light-weight, so qsc plx and powerlights were at the top of my list. after talking to bob lee (thanks!) and a few other folks, i decided that a plx 3002 would be more than sufficient for my needs, and at around 21 pounds, it would meet my weight requirements nicely. after spending a while today really running it through its paces, before practice tonight, well, man, i am amazed. i hooked up my qsc 3002 to the ole aggie and it sounds excellent - a much more expanded, open response than the trace had - cleaner and more articulate and yet still with a nice raw grind to the mids. i can't believe it. it's like i just used some q-tips on my sound. ab'ing it with the bgw showed a more expanded low freq and more power and punch in the 2-2.5k range. the bgw had a bit more high freq response, and would probably make an excellent pa/vocal reinforcement option.
