The Samson SX2800 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 Samson SX Series stereo power amplifiers have been designed to provide robust, clean output with low distortion and wide dynamic range, along with the dependability demanded by the most professional audio engineers and installers.

The powerful SX-2800 boasts an incredible 2800 Watts or power in a two rack space design. Ideal for driving 18-inch sub fills or large front-of-house mains in larger venues, the SX-2800 gives you clean worry free power, and a lot of it.

Features:

•  Professional High Power Rail-switching Amplifier
•  700 Watts per side @ 8 Ohms
•  900 Watts per side @ 4 Ohms 
•  1800 watts @ 8 ohms in bridged mono
•  Dual Variable-speed Fan Cooling
•  Signal, Peak, and Protection Circuit Indicators
•  5-way Binding Post and Speakon™ Speaker Outputs
•  XLR and TRS Input Connections
•  Dual Rack Space Design

Highlights:

•  Clean, crisp sound - Impressive audio specifications such as 0.04% THD, dynamic range of 105 dB, crosstalk of 80 dB, and frequency response of 10 Hz to 55 kHz guarantee ultra-clean sound quality.
•  Independent input level controls for each channel allow precision adjustments.
•  LED signal indicators for each channel continuously display power output levels and allow you to correct for overloading (clipping) conditions.
•   Unique stable bipolar circuit design that continuously keeps DC output during idling at or near zero volts (thus keeping idle speakers at their zero point). This serves to minimize heat overload problems by effectively preventing the SX Series from applying power when unnecessary.
•  Forced air cooling via two temperature-sensitive, variable speed fans provides reliable performance without thermal and overheating problems.
•  Protection relay circuitry (with dedicated LEDs for each channel) that guards against overheating or faulty wiring conditions and also prevents “thumps” when powering on or off. This means that you can use the SX Series with a single power strip into which a mixer or other audio devices are connected, without danger of damage to connected speakers.
•  Combination input connectors for each channel accommodate both balanced XLR or balanced 1/4-inch TRS plugs.
•  Output connections are made via 5-way binding posts and Speakon™ connectors.
•  Toroidal transformer power supply for high current and low profile.
•  User-resettable circuit breaker for fast, easy startup following a power supply overload.
•  The SX Series can be mounted in any standard 19" rack (taking just two rack spaces), making it easy to integrate the amp into any fixed or traveling PA rig.
•  Rugged construction (an all-steel chassis with a cool gray finish and a lightweight anodized aluminum heat sink) makes the SX Series eminently roadworthy.
•  Last but certainly not least, value. The Samson SX Series has been designed from the ground up to deliver excellent yet affordable sound quality.

      Comments about Samson SX2800 Power Amplifier:

      I had my mind set to buy a crown amp, but they just look to cheap nowadays, never would've thought i would own a samson amp until i saw it's performance and it was no looking back after that. Very well built for the price! Great work Samson.

          Comments about Samson SX2800 Power Amplifier:

          I have been using the sx2800 amp for two years now with EV eliminator i doubles with no issues whatsoever. The amp is overkill. Save one minor issue. This amp is 4-5 times heavier than a comparable crown or qsc amp. Not kidding it is around 50lbs. My crown xls1500 is like 9 lbs. For a mobile dj I'd recommend going with the crown xls2000.

          Comments about Samson SX2800 Power Amplifier:

          This is a sleeper amp!!! Many people look the other way because it says Samson. I've own my Samson amp for over 3 years and it reliable as heck! My crown amps, I avoid because of power issues but this amp delivers the same power at half the cost. If you are looking for something to push bottoms or have a couple of tops that need pushing, this is the way to go. The only con is weight, which is why I sold mine a few days ago. If you DJ like me, lugging amps around can get a bit tiresome! Otherwise, buy this and never look back.
