Power and Efficiency

QSC PL380 (QSC-PL380) Power Amplifier combines the ground breaking PowerLight™ supply with a Class-D audio output section, doubling the output power while reducing weight and eliminating AC mains hum for improved audio quality. The Class-D output section outperforms most competitive linear amplifiers, offering the best full-range audio performance available in this power range. The unit easily drives even difficult loads without any distracting behavior or change in tone quality, maintaining a neutral sonic signature. The QSC DataPort provides access to the Q-SYS networked platform for a full range of remote control and monitoring systems.

Features:

  • Class D Amplifier handles extreme power loads
  • Flow-through air path and solid aluminum heat sinks for maximum cooling
  • DataPort supports remote network control and monitoring via Q-SYS
  • Removable knobs with lock-out security plate to prevent unauthorized tampering
  • Parallel XLR/M and XLR/F connectors for simple loop-through connectivity
