Description

QSC ISA280 2 Channels 185 Watts 8 Ohms ISA Series Rackmount Installation Stereo Power Amplifier

Commercial power amplifier

Key Features

  • Rear panel gain controls for tamper resistance; 2-dB detents allow for quick and repeatable settings.
  • XLR and detachable Euro-style input connectors
  • DataPort V2 for use with DPV2-compatible signal processing accessories (XC-3, SF-3, LF-3) and DSP-3/DSP-4 (with external power supply)
  • Independent defeatable clip limiters for reduced distortion
  • Selectable high-pass filters (30 Hz or 70 Hz) protect speakers and prevent speaker transformer saturation with minimal effect on program material
  • Front panel LED indicators include power, signal, and clip
  • Covered barrier strip output connectors for safety agency compliance
  • Automatic on-demand variable-speed fan: quiet normal operation, with maximum cooling when needed
  • Rear-to-front air flow helps keep equipment racks cool
  • Stereo, bridge, or parallel operating modes
  • Comprehensive protection circuitry including DC, infrasonic, thermal overload, and short circuit protection
