The PLX3602 is an excellent choice for users who need to drive up to four loudspeakers from each amplifier channel (2 ohm loading), or when extremely high power bridge mono operation is required. The PLX3602 features built-in subwoofer processing, filter switches, and front panel indications of bridge mono status. Rated at 775 watts per side at 8 ohms, 1250 watts at 4 ohms, and 1800 watts at 2 ohms. In bridge mono, it puts out 2600 watts at 8 ohms and 3600 watts at 4 ohms.

The PLX2 series is a range of premium quality, high-power amplifiers designed for the most demanding live performance uses. Built on the third generation of QSC PowerLight™ technology, PLX2 amplifiers combine light weight, superlative audio quality and proven QSC reliability. With power ratings up to 3,600 watts, PLX2 amplifiers are capable of providing plenty of clean, undistorted output to the most power hungry speaker systems.

The "02" models (PLX1802, PLX2502, PLX3102 and PLX3602) are the right choice for users who need to drive up to four loudspeakers from each amplifier channel (2 ohm loading), or when extremely high power bridge mono operation is required. These models feature built-in subwoofer processing, filter switches, and front panel indications of bridge mono status.

Mechanical
PLX2 series amplifiers have the refined, rugged good looks usually associated with high performance racing cars, competition bikes, professional power tools, and high power machinery. A solid, cast-aluminum front panel adds professional style to any rack while also acting as an integral I-beam, rigidly tying the chassis together for years of on-the-road reliability.

Additional mechanical touches such as the side stiffening rails, rear rack ears and cable tie anchor points attest to QSC's years of experience and attention to detail. QSC has even designed the integrated front handles so the amplifier slides into a rack without scraping the installers fingers on the rack sides. The exterior appearance of PLX2 amplifiers conveys what's inside - simply and truly, 13 to 21 pounds of the most advanced professional power amp on the planet.

PowerLight Technology
PowerLight switchmode technology replaces a large, heavy AC transformer (typically 20 lbs. / 9 kg) with a highly efficient and lighter-weight active design. Conventional AC transformers provide 60 energy pulses per second. The PowerLight supply delivers 100,000 pulses per second. More pulses make it easier to provide on-demand power for the amplifier's output section. The power supply doesn't "sag" so bass notes stay full and powerful while the high end remains crisp and clean.

Audio Quality
PLX2 audio power circuitry achieves performance normally associated with studio reference amplifiers. In order to reduce crossover distortion, precision bias tracking makes minute adjustments as amplifier temperature changes. The benefit is cleaner high-frequency and more consistent sound no matter how hard the amplifier is driven. The higher power models use QSC-exclusive class H output circuitry, a form of audio "turbocharging" that increases maximum power without affecting the basic audio quality.

    Comments about QSC PLX3602 Stereo Power Amplifier:

    I purchased this amp to replace an amp that didn't have enough power for my 18" EV subs. Now I can do indoor and outdoor events without breaking a sweat. This amp is so strong that it will move your pant leg from from 15 feet away at just over 1/2 gain! It's light weight and very clean sounding.Get one you won't regret it.

      Comments about QSC PLX3602 Stereo Power Amplifier:

      I replaced a way much heavier 88 pound 4 space rack amp with this one and I was also looking to up my power usage because of the larger events I started to get booked for. I a-b compared this amp at the store level here in Clearwater by recommendation of Mike A. (someone who works with Sam Ash) with another amp of similar power ratings. I will say, there was a clear difference in the sonic quality and clarity between this amp and the competitor amp I was originally going to buy by a land slide. Way better sound, much better control of the speaker loads place on this amp. I recently added a set of JBL duel 15 inch PA speakers to this amp and the JBL's just came alive and nearly knocked me over when I began to twitch this amp on them.

      At 21 pounds an amp and only 2 spaces taken up on my amp rack, I cant wait to add 2 more of 3602's to my rack and get an 1802 or 1804 for my monitors for when I go out and DJ at local and large events.

      5 stars...HA!!! this amp deserves a 10....

      These Amps Have Super sound & clearity. I Work for a Company with 4 of these in one amp rack, we usually only power them 3/4 of the way and they are super loud, clear, and never have any problems with them at all. Going to start my own business soon, and I will only buy these Amps for my system. I give these 5/5. Highly recommended.

      Comments about QSC PLX3602 Stereo Power Amplifier:

      This amp has done what i did not think was possible. I have increadable head room and can bring the system to life with no more than a flikker of the signal lights. 18" subs with 15" tops at 4 ohm's and makes them ask me for more. I get increadible volume and look at the amp and it not even sweating. Some say "power is power" now I know that is simply not true.

      "This amp will enhance any speaker systems with plenty power to spare. I bridged it and run 2 Peavey SP 18 speakers with it. I could't believe the thump I received. I'm going to purchase another as soon as possible. Great Amp. QSC is top of the line and cost effective. Buy one, you won't regret it. Gene"

      "I can't believe how much ""punch"" this amp has. We've had a power amp from another manufacturer on our subs and they sounded pretty good (we thought). When we added the PLX3602 to the system it sounded like the bass came to life."
