Samson S1000 Specifications

Powers SVS Subwoofers

Ode to a Samson

The power amplifier shall be capable of stereo, mono bridged or parallel (daisy chain) operation. In stereo mode, it shall deliver a minimum of 500 watts into loads of 4 ohms each with both channels operating. In mono bridge mode, it shall deliver a minimum of 1000 watts into an 8 ohm load. It shall be cooled by two temperature sensitive speed-controlled fans, and shall have internal short-circuit and thermal protection circuitry. A protection LED indicator shall activate and the power amplifier shall shut down to protect against short circuits, overheating, severe overcurrent conditions or DC offset present at the outputs. The power amplifier shall have slow start-up and muted inputs on turn on. Inputs shall be on XLR and locking balanced 1/4" tipring-sleeve connectors. Outputs shall be on Banana jack and Speakon. connectors. The front panel shall have independent level controls for left and right channels, a master power switch and LED indicators for power, clip, -20dB, -40dB and amplifier protection.

The power amplifier shall be a SAMSON S1000
