Product Description

The power amp market of the '70s was dominated by Peavey's CS series, thanks to their innovative circuitry and all-around reliability. These innovations continue through today with the Peavey CS 3000 power amplifier. This sturdy, ferocious juggernaut will fire up your signal with as much as 1,065 watts per channel at 4 ohms.

DDT compression/anti-clipping protection will keep your speakers safe from any unwanted distortion, and circuitry safeguards include automated defenses against improper loads, high temperatures, and shorts. This power amp is a sturdy piece of gear that you can depend on.

Up to 3,000 Watts for Your Passive PA

Your CS 3000 power amp will get you more watts for your two channels with dependable ease and incredible fidelity. Per 2 ohm channel, you get 1,550 watts. Per 4 ohm channel, you get 1,065 watts, per 8 ohm channel, you have 650 watts, and at 4 ohms bridged you get 3,100 watts! You can be sure that you'll continually have enough wattage to fuel your passive speakers without taking up too much rack space.

Thermal Efficiency and Cable Security

Your Peavey CS 3000 stays cool under pressure with its efficient and reliable dual temperature-dependant speed fans. Your outputs include two binding posts and two NL4 Speakon outputs that'll securely lock your cables into place for a safe and consistent flow of power.

DDT Speaker Protection and Automated Safeguards

With all of this power, you might be concerned about damage to your speakers should something go wrong. Peavey has already taken care of this worry with its exclusive DDT protection system that keeps our output signal from clipping or distorting your passive speakers. Other safeguards include protections against short circuits, high temperatures, and improper loads.

Durable Casing and Simple LED-Lit Front Panel

Your CS 3000 comes in a lightweight thermally-efficient 16-gauge steel casing with a cast-aluminum front panel and steel grille. Your front panel has a simple set of three LED lights per channel indicating signal presence, power, and DDT triggering.

Features:

- Two-channel power amplifier
- Dual temperature-dependent variable-speed fans
- 2U design in 16-gauge steel with cast-aluminum front panel and steel grille
- Easy-to-read LED lights on front panel
- Two combination XLR/TRS inputs
