    guys ..

    any of your tried using QSC RMX 1450/1850 as your power amp?

    what preamp do you use?

    is this kind of setup better and more powerful than if we use a normal bass head?

    anyone can help with how to actually connect poweramp and preamp? thisi s my first time thinking about that setup :)

    there are 2 output in the back of QSC RMX i think that's for the speakers right?

    i never use a poweramp before, is there a switch for mono-bridge or stereo?

    beside that i also notice there are two input xlrs, channel 1 and channel 2, is that where we connect our preamp into? both channels? or just one?
     
  8. Whether or not it's better I suppose is up to personal preference... the pre/power setup usually has more power than the average head IME.

    All you have to do to connect the preamp to the poweramp is run a (usually 1/4") cable between them.

    There is a switch on the back of the amp to toggle settings, which will affect how you go about plugging in your inputs and outputs.
