    I can pick up a QSC MX 3000a that is less than 1 years old for $1140 Canadian taxes in ($739 in us dollars) Is this a good price and what do you think of the amp?

    specs
    2400 watts at 8 ohms Bridged
    3200 watts at 4 ohms Bridged
    It also has a Variable Fan witch I think is good.

    Mark,

    First off, I really like QSC amplifiers. I've used their RMX, MX, USA series amps and all of them have worked great. The least expensive price I've found on the MX3000a (for a new one) is $1600 US dollars. So for more than half off at just 1yr old that seems like a great deal. And if it's important to you the MX series is THX certified for cinema applications.

    You know what I really don't know but the price seems right.
    Maybe I will run it at 16 ohm's for now for HT and maybe use it to test some spl subs thay I have sitting around.

    Holy shit that amp sounds like a monster! The fact that other poeple find it for 1600 and you can get it for 730, is awsome. I'de take it in an instant!

    I went to pick up the amp and the guy told me he had read the wrong specs from his book. They were Actually QSC MX 1500a's witch make 1500 at 4 ohms so I did not buy them.
