FS: Samson SX2800 2 ch power amplifier (cheap!!)
« on: 13 Jun 2018, 02:18 pm »
For sale is a 2 ch pro amplifier of very high output that I used for powering my high efficiency subwoofers. Audiogon 7/10 for a few scratches on the top panel. $200 shipped in the continental USA, PayPal F&F. Unit is double boxed and works perfectly. This is a pro amplifier, and it does have low velocity fans, so keep that in mind. For a separate rack, it is an excellent unit.


The Samson SX2800 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 700 watts at 8 ohms and 2 x 900 watts at 4 ohms.For mono applications, a bridged mode links both channels of the amplifiers, thus providing even more power, with a power rating of 1800 watts for the SX2800 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 SX2800 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 SX2800'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 SX2800 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.

In summary:

Professional High Power, Class H, Rail-switching Amplifier
700 watts per side @ 8 ohms
900 watts per side @ 4 ohms
1800 watts @ 8 ohms in bridged mono
Dual Variable-speed Fan Cooling
Signal, Peak, and Protection Circuit Indicators
42 position input level controls for each channel
5-way Binding Post and Speakon™ Speaker Outputs
XLR and TRS Input Connections
