My friend has bought a large ASS sound system that came with 3 four channel Austin Armstrong Q3000  amps.

Not much online about these, they are old heavy weights 4U high and have a dual power supply.

He is looking for RMS ratings for these - Can anyone help?

Also any general info and comments/history would be great.

I had a AA Quad amp kicking about, 2000 ish IIRC, so about 4x 500W per channel at 4Ohm. Kind of implies what your Q3000 might do.

Had a nasty habit of setting fire to a small daughter board off the main channel PCB, and then AA disappeared.

I did find a website a few years later who claimed to be something born out of the old - http://www.verus-audio.co.uk/index.htm Don't know if still current, but might be worth a punt to say hello to them.

From memory the Q3000 was 750 per channel into 4 ohms, there was also a Q2000 (as above) and a Q1000.
Tony used these amps on his systems for a while, they were designed by Richard Collins I believe the later variants were renamed Monitec. speak to member Monitec (richard on here he's a member)

Never criticise another man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Once you have, call him what you like, you're a mile away and you've got his shoes!

Many thanks for your replies
 SP never fails for that! Monitec has serviced our amps in the past I believe :)

The 3k in white 750 w into 4 ohm
