PowerWavePFC™ Switching
Technology improves audio
performance and lowers AC
current requirements
Ultra-low AC current draw per
watt of output
Four-step Class H output for the
highest efficiency of any linear
amplifier
Current Cell™, quasicomplementary full-bridge output
circuit using ultra-high power
N-channel MOSFETs
Zero inrush current at start-up
avoids tripping circuit breakers
Line and load regulation
maintains peak power output
despite AC fluctuations
requirements up to 80%, greatly reducing the strain
on AC distribution.
The amplifier also features line and load regulation,
making its peak power capacity immune to drops in
AC line voltage. Other power supply features include
true soft start and a frequency-invariant design that
operates on any AC line frequency.
The amplifier’s output circuit is equally innovative.
State-of-the-art high-speed components and largedie, N-channel MOSFETs combine with a four-tiered
DC supply to yield efficiency comparable to Class D
designs, but the audio circuitry operates in linear
mode for lowest distortion and noise.

QSC AUDIO PRODUCTS INC.
The amplifier shall employ forced-air cooling with variable speed fans for
minimum acoustic noise. The flow of air shall be from rear to front to avoid
temperature rise inside the equipment rack into which it is mounted. It
shall be possible to fully and safely operate one or more rack-mounted
amplifiers without empty space above, below, or in between them. The
amplifier shall be capable of continuous operation at 1/3 power into 4-ohm
loads in ambient temperatures up to 104°F (40°C).
The amplifier shall contain two independent amplifier channels, each with
separate and independent power-factor-corrected switching power supplies. The amplifier’s power supplies shall exhibit an AC line power factor
better than 0.99 at all output powers in excess of 500 watts. The 120V
units shall operate correctly on program material for line voltages of 80
volts to 135 volts when connected to a circuit nominally rated at 120 VAC,
and 230V units shall have a similar compliance range on 230 VAC circuits.
All amplifier protection systems shall be self-resetting upon removal or
cessation of the offending faults. Each channel shall have protective circuitry
against short circuit or mismatched loads. Each channel shall independently monitor heat sink temperature and shall adjust its fan speed to
reduce internal heat sink temperatures, and if necessary, shall initiate
signal muting to prevent excessive temperature rise. Both channels shall have
on-off muting, acting for two seconds after turn-on, and within ¼ second
after turn-off or loss of AC power. Each channel shall have DC fault protection
for the load, consisting of a shutdown of each amplifier channel’s power
supply. There shall be no relay contacts in series with the amplifier outputs.
On the front panel shall be the AC power switch; a green power-on LED
indicator; a yellow standby LED indicator and a red protect LED indicator.
Each channel shall have the following controls and displays: a front panel
detented gain control, with 11 gain settings: 32 dB, 30 dB, 28 dB, 26 dB,
24 dB, 22 dB, 20 dB, 18 dB, 14 dB, 8 dB, -∞; a recessed clip limiter defeat
switch; a green “signal present” LED triggering at -30 dB; two yellow LED
output indicators, triggering at -20 dB and -10 dB; a red LED showing true
amplifier clipping. Each channel shall have a user-defeatable clip limiter.
The output connectors for each channel shall be Neutrik® Speakon™ connectors in parallel with 60-ampere “touch-proof” binding posts, accepting
individual banana plugs or up to 4 AWG (6 mm) wire. Connector terminals
shall be arranged on one-inch centers to discourage the use of low power
connections and to comply with European safety codes.
The rear panel input shall provide barrier strip and Neutrik “Combo” connectors for each channel. The XLR input shall be wired with pin 2 positive,
pin 3 negative, and pin 1 shield; the ¼” TRS input shall be wired with tip
positive, ring negative, and sleeve grounded. Inputs shall be electronically
balanced, with a minimum impedance of 10 kilohms per side, and a common
mode rejection of at least 50 dB from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.
A high-density 15-pin Data Port connector shall carry audio and amplifier
operational status signals to and from a QSC MultiSignal Processor.
A recessed slide switch on the rear panel shall allow selection of stereo,
bridging, or parallel operating modes. A two-position barrier strip on the
rear panel shall be used for remote control of the power supplies; making
an electrical connection between the terminals shall place both amplifier
channels in standby mode when the front panel power switch is in the “on”
position, while opening the connection causes the power supplies to resume operation. The front panel power switch shall function as a master
switch that removes all AC power.
Each channel shall be capable of meeting the following performance criteria with both channels driven: sine-wave output power of 1500 watts
into eight ohms, 2500 watts into four ohms, and 3000 watts into two ohms,
20 Hz to 20 kHz, with less than 0.1% THD. Frequency response at 3 dB
below rated power shall be 20 Hz to 20 kHz, ±0.15 dB. The voltage gain shall
be 40×, equivalent to 32 dB, and the full-power input sensitivity for an 8ohm load shall be 2.7 VRMS. The signal to noise ratio over the range of 20 Hz
to 20 kHz shall exceed 106 dB relative to full output. IHF damping factor
shall exceed 2000.
The amplifier chassis shall occupy three rack spaces, with provision for
securing and supporting the rear corners. Depth from mounting surface to
tips of rear supports shall be 17.9" (45.5 cm).
Weight shall not exceed 60 lbs (27.3 kg). The amplifier shall be the QSC
Audio Products PowerLight 6.0PFC.
