Just drove to a town near Rome, GA to pick up a used QSC PLX 1602. The guy that I bought the power amp from was using it to power his home theater subs... Basically never left his living room, never in a smokey bar and in nearly new condition! After nearly two years of playing through and lifting a Crown CE1000 (which is a great amp and very reliable), I was looking to go to something lighter and better suited for bass. After PM'ing and emailing cats here and other places, plus lurking in and around the 'AMPS' section of TB, I was down to either a Stewart or a QSC. Man, this amp is light!!! It's nearly 20 pounds!! With my untrained ears I can only notice a slight difference in sounds quality... or I should say clarity, cause that is the first thing that I noticed other than the weight. I haven't brought it out on a gig yet, but I can't wait to... Maybe this week's practice will be it's first full volume test. I have a question for those of y'all that own a QSC PLX, what settings are you using? I was going through the manual and trying to aquaint myself with what the little switches do on the back. So Far I have the amp bridged mono and the 30hz filter and clip limiter activated.
