Peavey CS 3000 Overview

The Peavey CS 3000 - Stereo Power Amplifier (1025W per Channel at 4 Ohm) is a 2RU rack mountable amp designed for live sound reinforcement applications such as for parties, clubs, and concerts. The amplifier is capable of outputting 3050W bridged at 4Ω, 1500W per channel at a 2Ω, 1025W per channel at 4Ω, and 650W per channel at 8Ω with a frequency response of 10 to 100,000 Hz.

The unit can be operated in either stereo or switched to bridged mono mode. It includes Peavey's Distortion Detecting Technique Limiting (DDT) circuitry as well as LFC impedance sensing, thermal, short circuit, DC voltage, and Turn-On/Turn-Off protection circuits. The front panel includes two input attenuators for controlling the level as well as LED indicator lights for power, signal, and DDT. For I/O, the back panel features combination 1/4" and XLR inputs, Speakon outputs, and binding post outputs.
