    Ok, here's one of those times where I know enough to get myself in trouble...

    Looking at the QSC FAQ on their website and see this: http://www.qscaudio.com/support/technical_support/faq.htm#pafaq6

    talking about inverted amps and reverse input polarity. Ok I kind of get that, but to simplify the question - if I hook up my speakers normally to the binding posts marked + and -, will they be reversed polarity? Or should I reverse the connections to correct the inversion? The amp is RMX 1850HD.

    Also, if the input polarity is reversed, is it ok to use the Monster "semi-balanced" 1/4" as input cable? Details here. It seems to be working, but after reading the QSC FAQ I have more questions than before I read it!

    You don't have to worry about it with the RMX amps--only with the MXa line.
