    The guy is a total moron. Class H is QSC's version of Class D?!?!... Total drivel. I couldn't read any further. And neither should you. Typical internut reviewer - dumb.

    "Though there is no technical description of this limiter, itÂ’s probably the same limiting technology used in recording studios to limit (crush might be a better word) dynamics."

    He goes on to note that the limiting feature cannot be switched off, complaining that audiophiles "spend a lot of money to achieve realistic dynamics."


    He must listen to music pretty darn loud in his living room if he's going to be driving that 2x800 watt amp into clipping.

    C'mon Growly Lytes! Are you still pondering getting this thing? Ive been reading some of your PLX1804 threads and its time to stop questioning it and just buy that mutha. Im a proud owner of the plx1804. I boought mine used @ 2 years ago for 600bux and never had a problem. The worst thing I had to do was turn my preamp gain up a little higher than I was used to (@1-2 oclock). After that, I had no problem cutting through or hearing myself next to 2 guitarists with Twin Reverb Amps and a loud drummer. I never have a need for more power, ever. :smug: I love this amp and its sooooo lite. You wont be dissapointed.

    If my dear friend Passinwind who is a real smart and educated techie didn't use an 1804 and say it was great I would block all future posts and email containing any reference to it ; }

    I doubt there's a touring band in the world that didn't have a stack or two of 1804 amps in their rig at one point or another.

    Charlie is responsible for me owning an 1804 and I've never regretted it. Place your order now and give us an update when you've put it through the paces. Just do it! :bassist::bassist::bassist:

    I've had an 1804 for a couple years. Bought mine used. Many dozens of gigs, zero reliability issues. Plenty of power.

    I used one with an Eden Navigator and it was outstanding! You wont find a better lightweight power amp that fits in a shallow depth rack and puts out such this much juice.

    If they're using amps that small, they'd have the 1802, but more likely Powerlite.

    Don't over think it. It's a very light, very reliable power amp made by a more than reputable company. A QSC product is a no brainer. If the specs work for you buy it.
