I-Tech 6K replacement

(1/3) > >>

Steve Hurt:
I'm thinking of replacing my I-Tech 6K amps with newer amps
What are modern comparable amps that aren't I-Nukes and aren't unobtanium priced?

(I-Tech 6 K is 3000/w/ch into 4 ohms and has DSP built in - 2 rack spaces)

While I don't use 3kw/ch because that would blow breakers, the amps do make subs grunt really nicely compared to some other amps I've tried
(and for whatever reason, the 6K's have been a lot more trouble free than my older I-Tech 4K's were)

I will be plugging into edison outlets, often GFI protected  (I-Techs and GFI's hate each other for some reason)

Steve Litcher:
Have you looked into the QSC PL380? They’re pretty stout; we had a bunch of them when we ran passive JTR subs and were really impressed by them. Check with Mike Pyle for better pricing.

Chris Grimshaw:
Powersoft T602 springs to mind. 1U, great DSP & control, 2500w/ch into 4ohm.

Oh, and you can directly limit the amp's mains current draw.

You can find great deals on used Itech HD amps and 4 x 3500HD amps online currently.. You should be able to find an IT5000HD or IT9000HD for less than 2k.

I've been very happy with my QSC PLD4.5 amps. Four channel, yet configurable to 1, 2, or 3, built in DSP, lightweight.

Best regards,

John
