    I have a PLX-1202 and I'm running it bridged mono. When looking at the lights on the front of it while I'm playing, I can see that the left side appears to be higher than the right.

    This makes no sense to me since the amp is bridged.

    The question is: what's up? and should I worry about this?

    Thanks.:confused:

    When will Bob Lee get his own forum?

    Or at least a FAQ.

    Inquiring minds want to know. My 1602 does the same thing.

    I own the very same amp (PLX1202) and I was also confused by the unsynchronologically flashing lights. I visited the QSC tech forum and read somewhere that this oddity is normal and my amp is supposed to be fine. Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with your amp.

    PS: Nevertheless, make shure (hehe) that channel 2 is comletely turned down, and that you're connected to #1!

    A little bit of mismatch among the LEDs isn't anything to worry about. The audio circuitry is extremely precise, but the LED metering isn't.

    He also makes a mighty fine tour guide...
     
  8. Get your drummer to keep an eye on the flashing lights for you. Explain that it will prevent the amp from exploding.

    If you're lucky, this will hynotize him and keep him from causing humbug.
