It's okay - if 3100w sounds too good to be true it is

NIck Bond, Amazon
13 June 2015
  • Summary: It is not as powerful as 3100w implies. I got it for a physics experiment and not the sound but at the end of the day my Onkyo TX NR-609 can push a pair of floorstanding speakers much further than this supposedly 3100w amp. Now I use it as an amp in a workshop/lab to power speakers.

Nice amp, just don't believe power claims

Swamp Rat, Amazon
20 April 2015
  • Summary: Bought this to bring some good sound to our 50 x 100 foot shop building, think they just stick wattage ratings on that have no basis in reality. Says 3100 watts...realistically seems to be about 250 watts per channel.

LOUD FAN NOISE!

B, Hamline, Amazon
3 April 2015
  • Summary: VERY NOISY: The cooling fan is over the top loud. I had to bury it in a cabinet (couldn't put in the rack it made so much noise). Too late to ship it back, so I'm going to put up with it until I can find one that is more suitable for a high end audio system.

Terrible lifespan even for a budget amplifier

Jace91, Amazon
18 January 2015
  • Summary: Power and sound quality are decent but the main reason for my one star rating is longevity. The first amp died after 3 months and the second after 5 months. Always used at 50-60% volume. Yes it's a good price but not if you have to replace it twice a year.

3100 whats?

dmac, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: I rarely take time to review purchases, but in the case of grossly overstated and misrepresented products - this time was a must. The description says 3100 watts output power, and by most of the other reviews I already expected less. However, it was far worse than I anticipated.

Very little power: much less than the 3100 advertised.

Dirk Garner, Amazon
20 November 2014
  • Summary: I compared this head to head with a 100 watt power amp. Running the 100 watt amp at 75% was far louder than the PQA3100 at 100%. It has nowhere near 3100 watts. It has nowhere near 100 watts. The fan is much too loud for a studio and gets picked up on mics 8 feet away.

Shuts down after a few min .

dee, Amazon
29 September 2014
  • Summary: Shut down within minutes... right out of the box. I was running 2 250w 12s in stereo . Had to crank amp up to even hear anything decent and then it clips and shuts down. Powered of and didn't cycle. Checked it the next day worked fine but again after a few minutes shut down.
