Summary: I bought this amp three years ago cause I was low on cash and needs an amp to run my dj speakers off of. Today I've probably used it for over 50 events running it at almost full power and for the price I'm truly amazed it's still running.
It's okay - if 3100w sounds too good to be true it is

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.

Summary: these amp's has been great for my smaller sub's woofer's that has 700 watt's but now with my 3600 watt's speaker's by pyle I need to upgrade to a larger amp like 8000 watt's amp by pyle for my two sub's that has 3600 watt's each becaust the 3100 will not push it to it's max it clips but work well...
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.
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.
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.

Summary: A person without experience of setting up these equipment will have a hard time however when you do you will love it When i finally got it set up it blew my speakers (12" Bumper woofer) I want them back (supplier)......
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.

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.
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.
