    i just recieved my new QSC2450 amp last friday , and i have a question about the signal lights ...

    i'm running the amp in parallel mode ,{ with switches set for 50 hz. }
    into an Avatar CB115 { 600watt - 8 ohm } , and Avatar CB112 { 500watt - 8ohm } . should be getting 500watts to each cabinet .

    my question is , are the signal lights next to the 'clip' lights supposed
    to light up every time i play a note ? they are just short little flashes ...
    { please forgive my ignorance , but this is my first experience with seperate power amp and preamp .}

    thanks in advance for any help :cool:

    Each signal LED indicates that the channel is putting out a signal of at least about 0.1% of full power.

    If the clip LED lights, then the channel is being pushed beyond its full-power capability.

    thanks Bob !!

    i kinda figured about the clip light , just wasn't sure about the signal ...

    this kind of customer service makes me all the more confident in my
    purchase of the RMX unit !! :D :cool:

    Is it ok the red clip lights come on when you hit heavy notes (i.e., occasional clipping)?

    Occasional clipping is usually nothing to worry about.
