Lout's review

By Lout, 26/03/2009
Used for over 2 years. I have owned the Crest, QSC, Crown, Yamaha ...

What I like already is the seriousness of the mark. That is what prompted me to think about this series, and I'm not disappointed with my choice, these are very reliable amp. Power, despite these sub 370w 8Ω, appears much higher tuned amplifier using a range of 800w. The P1200 is well defended in serious, even in medium and clearly acute. Very good sound.

The knobs are very accurate facade between -12 and 0dB is a little harder to navigate below-17dB. The sensitivity is set to 0dBu at the plant, to change it to +6 dBu or +26 dBu must move a jumper inside the amp. His avoids the problems of poor handling.

LEDs indicate the switching on of the device, the signal input, the output of a power, limiter activation and development protection.

The power is in 2Ω 2x650w, 2x550w in 4Ω, 8Ω and under 2x370w 2x250w (measured) in 16Ω.
In bridge, there is a dedicated outlet with a plug and a switch to toggle to a point, yet to avoid mishandling (they thought at all). In his exit gives 1x1300w in 4Ω, 8Ω 1x1100w sub, sub 16Ω 1x740w, 1x500w (measured) in 32Ω and 1x440w (measured) in 36Ω.

Limiter and very responsive. It is not switched off to prevent breakage but may be delayed by pushing the switch to slow.

Filter Hi-Lo-CUT is a filter for cutting the cabinet or enclosure. It is a filter for the extreme limit of hearing the band (20hz and 20khz). Even to prevent breakage.

The connection of input is XLR and, as always with EV, the inputs are bridged can link multiple amp with a single signal.

The ventilation fan is that breath directly on the radiator. This cooling method is more efficiency than when the fan draws. It is also noisier, but it has 3 speeds, making it quiet at low volumes.
When empty, but it consumes slightly warm months than reported EV, and announced 250w 239v 72W measured. At power it draws about 750w.

In these Characteristics, EV said the P1200 will be able to dissipate up to 5000W and he'll be able to hold a maximum temperature of 200 ° C.
Difficult to verify this, but I still used as bridge 2Ω. This amounts to 1Ω per channel. He heated a little more, but he held to this without protection. You have to go really hard to trigger protection.

Compared to Crown macrotech, I prefer the EV. I do not like the Crown, their demand cooling racks specially adapted for them, some were so overcome that his life becomes metallic, it is very expensive in time and sometimes we fall down on MA / modified / tampered / makeup in VZ. In addition, on occasion, the same power the EVs are cheaper than the Crown.

There is a time where I want to sell to buy a lighter amp. But I was afraid of losing the level in the bass with power supply, amplifier and am interested fesait between 12 and 15kg, while the P1200 actually 16kg.
1kg win-loss level and quality? never, I keep my P1200.
If I sell it, it will be a P2000 or P3000.

I forget, the P1200 is the "made in Germany", manufactured in which the Dynacord L1000 becomes P1200.
