One thing I did notice is that pretty much all the DJs were clearly using burned CDs of music they'd downloaded at home. So the quality of the MP3 going through the rig varied so wildly from tune to tune it wasn't worth riding the faders and EQ all weekend to try and put back the stuff that wasn't there in the first place.

God dam electricity on the meter! sat down and wrote a wicked review of the weekend only for the power gods to take it away from me.

Apart from this year being seriously hard work i had an awesome time. Putting simulated stacks into place and achieving the predicted results has given me alot of confidence in sound modeling software.

A big thank you to barney (sub bass) for all his help. will have another go this evening when i have a bit more time

he then complains to me alsoAngry, then I tell the twat to put a BOUGHT cd, and lets listen to the outcomeEmbarrassedEmbarrassed

something has got to be done about this

Not quite 8.3kw, remember no amp is 100% efficient. In fact, because they were all running at 2r a side they would have been 87% efficient.

yes but I was under the impression that this was a 7k amp meaning that it can draw 7k max, and if it's running at 90% efficiency then it would still be drawing 7k but only giving 6.3 to the speakers
anyway, 87% of 8.3 is still giving more than 7k to the speakers
so when people have been saying this is 7k amp they're not saying what it draws but its max output after internal losses or whatever, but infact it can do more than this?
I'll just looks at the specs..

Amps are rated by their output at different impedances as standard, not what they draw. Although sometimes the max current draw is presented in the spec sheet as well.

The Infinite 8 Mk2 is rated officially at 3700w per channel at 2r loads, but in bench testing it has put out more than that. Rog likes to give realistic and conservative power ratings it seems.

Drawing 36A, at 87% efficiency on a 230v supply, the amp would be putting out 7203w total which is just below the rated max output.
