Can I use just one channel on an amp? Can I have unequal load impedances on the channels?

A work in progress.

  • Can I use just one channel on an amp? Can I have unequal load impedances on the channels?

    You can do both.

    You don't need to use all the amplifier's channels. If you only need one, use one.

    You may use different signals among the amp channels, and you can also have different load impedances. For most QSC amplifier models, the minimum load per channel is 2 ohms, so as long as no channel load is less than 2 ohms the amplifier is fine.

    Certain QSC amplifier models—chiefly the GX and PLX -04 ranges and the CX404—have a minimum load impedance of 4 ohms per channel, so they will accommodate any load of 4 ohms or higher.
