My RMX1450 is getting hot. For a while now I have been using my QSC RMX1450 in bridge mono to run my subs daisey chained one to the next. My theory is that the subs recieve 700w each in this config. The specs say bridge mono 4ohms = 1400w. My subs are 800w max so I figure its a good match. I have been running my tops ZX1 passives with the QSC GX5 (500w x 2). Seems like the tops are getting more than enough power because I usually keep the GX5 amp gain around 12oclock and the RMX amp gain around 3oclock (this is the piont where it will clip at about the same time as my mixer clips). My RMX has been getting REALLY hot sometimes. At a school dance last weekend, and at a wedding this past Sat. (This wedding was a bunch of young ones wanting new stuff played loudly) is when I started noticing it more because I have been touching the amps instead of just watching the clip lights. I don't want my amp getting this hot. The GX is humming along a little warm but the RMX is HOT!!! At first I was thinking I'll keep a fan blowing into the back of the rack all night to keep it cool. Then I thought... yeah till the amp just goes bye bye. Not the option I want to use. I figure I'll stop running mono with the RMX. I'm gonna start using my GX5 to power the subs running stereo 8ohms, and the RMX for the tops running stereo 8ohms. I'm hoping the jump down from 700w to 500w on the subs won't be missed too much by me, and that the tops will still be loud enough to keep up. I feel like I'll run safer like this. What do y'all think? Eventually I want a louder system altogether but I can't afford it. So, other than that advice, what do y'all think?
