Which QSC amp?

    I am considering QSC power amplification, but I am not sure which one to choose. This is what I would wanna do / have:

    - 2 channel stereo amp, bridge-able to 1 channel;
    - two inputs for two pre-amps;
    - each pre-amp input routable to each output channel in either stereo or bridged mode (is that possible at all?);
    - Power: minimum of 2 x 700-ish Watts;

    What model do I need?

    Thanx guys!

    It depends on your budget.

    If you have the cash, something from the PLX line (lightweight), if you're on a bit of a budget the RMX line is the way to go.

    Click here for info on the PLX line.

    They both sound great, it's just a matter of how much weight you want to put up with.

    As far as your preamp input needs go, I will have to refer you to TalkBass member Bob Lee (QSC audio applications engineer) for that one. I know that in 'parallel input' mode the same signal feeds both amps AND you can use the other input to daisy chain over to feed another amp BUT I have no idea if you can use both inputs to feed the same amp with different preamps.

    And power-wise it looks like the PLX 1202 will supply your power needs but remember, there is no such thing as too much power, just power used unwisely.

    The PLX2402 will give you 700 watts a side into 4 ohms. Nice and light too!
