Care to explain?

I would relate noise issues to gain structure rather than to amplifier topology, provided the design of the circuitry and quality of components is decent.
I am not an amplifier expert by any means, but have used quite a few.

Not really ? Lol

Just a theory from a buddy at work.

Not noise, more like tube roar, or maybe blacker blacks.

The QSC PLX's don't fall in that category. IME, they need a real stiff line supply to keep from dropping out at 2R.

200 amp panel, located less than 15 feet from where the amplifiers reside. The utility pole transformer is approximately 75 - 80 feet from the service entrance wiring stack.



A smaller amplifier could be used on the compression drivers.

That's good.

I have good service too, and ran 10 gauge dedicated short runs from the panel to try to eliminate dropouts. Helped, but still had drops on heavy bass transients.
Forget a PLX with extension cords, LoL....prosound forums are full of such threads.
It appears the fact that the caps in the PLX's aren't up to the same spec as in the Powerlight's, is the dropout culprit.
I've never had an equivalent wattage PL3 drop where the PLX did....but in fairness to QSC, there's a reason PLX cost less, huh?

Yep to smaller amp for the CD. A used 4ch CX amp goes for peanuts on ebay.... if you're biamping the BMS..
