I. WARNING NOTICES
SPEAKER DAMAGE
The MXa Series amplifiers are among the most powerfulprofessional amplifiers available and is capable of pro-ducing much more power than many loudspeakers canhandle. It is the user
s responsibility to use suitablespeakers with the amplifier and to use them in a sensibleway that will not cause damage.QSC will not be responsible for blown speakers. Consultthe speaker manufacturer for power-handling recom-mendations.Either channel of the MX 3000a amplifier has special clip-limiting protection circuitry that reduces the signal level atthe onset of heavy clipping. This not only allows theamplifier to operate at a high average power level withoutaudible distortion occurring, but it also prevents thespeakers
being destroyed by excessive clipping. How-ever, if the amplifier is operating normally and yourspeakers fail anyway, it is virtually certain that they couldnot handle the high power, despite the lack of clipping.Even if you reduce the gain using the amplifier
s frontpanel attenuator controls, it is still possible to reach fulloutput power if the input signal level is high enough.A single high-power crescendo can blow high-frequencydrivers almost instantaneously, while low-frequency driv-ers can usually withstand very high, continuous powerlevels for a few seconds before they fail. Reduce powerimmediately if you hear any speaker
bottoming out
”—
harsh pops or cracking distortion that indicate that thespeaker voice coil or diaphragm is striking the magnetassembly.QSC recommends that you use amplifiers of this powerrange for more headroom (cleaner sound) rather than forincreased volume.
SPEAKER OUTPUT SHOCK HAZARD
An MXa amplifier is capable of producing hazardousoutput voltages. To avoid electrical shock, do not touchany exposed speaker wiring while the amplifier is operat-ing.
RACK MOUNTING PRECAUTIONS
In portable racks, to avoid damage to either the amplifiermounting ears or the mounting rails, support the amplifierat all four corners. Contact the QSC Customer ServiceDepartment to order rear support brackets.
CAUTION: To reduce the rish of electric shock, do not removethe cover. No user-serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing toqualified service personnel.WARNING: To prevent fire or electric shock, do not expose thisequipment to rain or moisture.
