    using only one channel of an EPQ2000

    love the EPQ2000 amp, have been using them for about 7 years on various duties. i have a show coming up shortly and i want to use them for monitors - but there are an odd number of monitors, meaning one channel of one amp will not have any signal going through all weekend, while the adjacent channel will be running 12 hours a day for 3 days.
    i know some old amps used to have issues with this but i don't see anything in the manual suggesting this would be a problem. is it ok to run only one channel

    Hi Howard,

    In my experiences with older power amps I've also been told that operating one side like that is not good for the amp, but that was with much older model amplifiers. However I checked with CARE about this and the consensus was that operating only one channel of your EPQ2000 Power Amp like you describe won't damage your amp.

    So it looks like you're good to go.
