The Samson SX1800 is a professional rack-mount power amplifier designed for live sound or installation audio applications, offering an output power of 400W per channel at 8 ohms. The amplifier can operate in stereo, parallel, or bridged-mono mode according to your needs and offers combination XLR/TRS input jacks and 5-way binding posts and Speakon output connectors. Front-panel volume knobs let you make level adjustments easily.
The Samson SX1800 stereo power amplifier has been designed to provide robust, clean output with low distortion and wide dynamic range, along with the dependability demanded by professional audio engineers and installers.The convenient two rackspace design is compact, and yet there’s plenty of power available, with 2 x 400 watts at 8 ohms and 2 x 600 watts at 4 ohms.
For mono applications, a bridged mode links both channels of the amplifiers, thus providing even more power, with a power rating of 1200 watts for the SX1800 into an 8 ohm load.Input connections are made via combination connectors allowing for both balanced XLR and balanced 1/4″ TRS connections. For the outputs, the SX1800 amplifier provides standard 5-way binding posts, as well as Speakon™ connectors. Front panel controls and displays include a power switch with LED indicator, as well as independent left and right channel input level controls.
To help you set the correctoperating levels, the SX amplifiers include front panel Signal, Peak and Protection LED indicators.Like all serious power amplifiers, the SX1800’s internal electronics are based around a serious powercore, with oversized toroidal transformer and large extruded heatsinks. To keep the SX amplifiers running cool, their designs employ twin internal wind tunnels with forced-air cooling via two temperature-sensitive,variable speed fans, which greatly reduce the chance of thermal and overheating problems.
Multi-stage protection for power-up, over-heating, over-current, short circuit, low output impedance and DC voltage, assures high reliability under the most demanding situations.The SX1800 is road tough with its all steel chassis, 19-inch rackmount design and convenient carry handles, so it’s ready for a life of travel, or to make it’s home in a fixed installation
