Winter NAMM 2003

COSTA MESA, CA... At Winter NAMM, QSC Audio Products Inc., the world's foremost manufacturer of integrated audio systems, will feature the PL6.0 II power amplifier-a new addition to its legendary PowerLight Series. Designed for professional touring, permanent installations, and other SR (sound reinforcement) applications requiring high levels of sustained power, the new PL6.0 II benefits from QSC's exclusive PowerWave™ switching power supply technology, the company's proprietary DataPort for remote computer control and DSP, and an enhanced design that provides greater airflow through the chassis-facilitating cooler, more efficient operation.

Housed in a 3RU rackmountable chassis with a depth of just 17.9", the new PL6.0 II offers four-step Class H output for the highest efficiency of any linear amplifier. The PL6.0 II delivers 3500 watts/ch @ 2 ohms, 2200 watts/ch @ 4 ohms, and 1300 watts/ch @ 8 ohms (EIA rated)-making this an exceptional unit for low frequency work such as driving subwoofers. Similarly, this powerhouse will drive mids and highs with impeccable clarity in full-range applications. The amplifier's superlative audio performance is supported by its massive thermal capacity. Further, the amplifier is fed by a significantly enhanced version of the road proven PowerWave switching power supply technology used in QSC's field-proven lightweight amplifiers. This same advanced technology improves audio performance and lowers AC current requirements.

The new PL6.0 II boasts a number of exceptionally useful features, including selectable clip limiters for lowering distortion and to protect speakers, plus a standby mode that enables remote AC power control. The PL6.0 II also includes unique clip-tracking

circuitry that provides instant recovery and maintains constant damping. The inclusion of QSC's DataPort facilitates integration into QSControl, QSC's network audio system-enabling remote gain control, the ability to check clipping and thermal status, as well as the monitoring of numerous additional system parameters. This same DataPort also facilitates the use of signal processing products such as the DSP-4. For easy setting and re-setting of levels, the PL6.0 II provides detented gain controls with 2 dB steps.

QSC's new PL6.0 II provides easy integration into any environment. The amplifier includes Neutrik® "Combo" (XLR and ¼") and Euro-style barrier balanced input connectors. The unit's output connectors include Speakons™ plus custom-designed, extra large "touchproof" binding post outputs with a 60A rating. To prevent tripping circuit breakers at power-on, the PL6.0 II provides Active Inrush Limiting.
