A line of amplifiers that defines high impact. Up to 3,400 watts in a 2 rack-unit chassis that’s only 13 in. deep and 21 lbs. It includes the exclusive PowerWave Technology used in the award-winning PowerLight? Series for chest-pounding bass and crystal-clear highs. PowerWave is a switching power supply that provides ample current to the audio power circuitry by charging the supply rails 230,000 times a second through and ultra-low impedance circuit. So unlike other amps with conventional supplies, the audio signal is never starved prematurely and remains crisp and clean. It virtually eliminates hum and greatly reduces noise, providing a vast dynamic range that can handle any music without running out of headroom. To keep the PLX Series running under the most demanding conditions, the Advanced Thermal Management System has been added.
The Advanced Thermal Management system ensures the amps run cool and are reliable even under harsh conditions. Using a high-output variable speed fan, ATM pulls cool air from the rear of the amp and propels it through a heat shroud precision-fitted to flow air over the heat sinks and out of the amplifier.
