WARNING: Bridge mode is to be used only when the SX Series is connected to an 8 or 16 ohm speaker load. Use of Bridge mode with speaker loads of less than 8 ohms can result in severe damage to the unit due to excessive heat and current limiting and will void your warranty!

All Samson SX Series amps are designed to operate on 15 amp circuits and do not require special plugs or wiring. It is advisable to put each amp on a separate circuit to avoid popping a standard 15-20 amp breaker.

"Great budget minded PA power amp!!"
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I expect this unit is a good overall investment given the price point, power and features. I expect to be satisfied with it for a while.
Sound
This amp was used to drive (2) dual 15" w/horn speakers and did an excellent job. Great volume and punch. Very good value for the money
Features
It's a power amp....What do you need besides a plug-n-play unit? Signal and clip indicators are easily visible and work well. Easy to use bridge/stereo/parallel switch. Speakon and 5-way binding post outs. XLR and 1/4 TRS ins.
Ease of Use
As I said, plug-n-play. Your up and running in a few short minutes.
Quality
Initial quality seems very good. We'll see how it stands up to regular club playing.
Value
The select b-stock unit from Zzounds was absolutely immaculate. A very fair power/quality/price combination.
Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to use.
The Wow Factor
How "sexy" can a power amp be? It does its job and that's sexy enough for me.
