Got a heavy (well actually not that heavy) XP3000h here. Obviously very different to the last one I owned which had metal mosfets facing up. This one has trannies on bottom.
What is the actual difference in these amps?

Thanks

Must be the difference between the 3000 mosfet (old style front) and 3000h I suppose

I preferred my old STR3000H, to the XP3000H.

But an SAE  PXM1450 will spank both those now..

Yes my str3000 was brutal on bass!!! Shredded x4 1550s in turbo folded horns a very solid 3k amp indeed.

STR3000s had a reputation for frying voice coils, where as I've used MA5000VZs and QSC 5050s, and no such issues.

Kinda' reminds me of MA3600VZ.
