The Samson SX1200 stereo power amplifier has been designed to provide robust, clean output with low distortion and wide dynamic range, along with the dependability demanded by professional audio engineers and installers.The convenient two rackspace design is compact, and yet there's plenty of power available, with 2 x 300 watts at 8Ω and 2 x 450 watts at 4Ω over the full frequency spectrum, from 10 Hz to 55 kHz.For mono applications, a bridged mode links both channels of the amplifiers, thus providing even more power, with a power rating of 900 watts for the SX1200 into an 8 ohm load.Input connections are made via combination connectors allowing for both balanced XLR and balanced 1/4" TRS connections. For the outputs, the SX1200 amplifier provides standard 5-way binding posts, as well as Speakon™ connectors. Front panel controls and displays include a power switch with LED indicator, as well as independent left and right channel input level controls. To help you set the correct operating levels, the SX amplifiers include front panel Signal, Peak and Protection LED indicators.Like all serious power amplifiers, the SX1200's internal electronics are based around a serious powercore, with oversized toroidal transformer and large extruded heatsinks. To keep the SX amplifiers running cool, their designs employ twin internal wind tunnels with forced-air cooling via two temperature-sensitive,variable speed fans, which greatly reduce the chance of thermal and overheating problems. Multi-stage protection for power-up, over-heating, over-current, short circuit, low output impedance and DC voltage, assures high reliability under the most demanding situations.The SX1200 is road tough with its all steel chassis, 19-inch rackmount design and convenient carry handles, so it's ready for a life of travel, or to make it's home in a fixed installation.
