I'm new to this forum as I'm new to Carver pro audio (and pro amps in general..). Some days ago I bought a Carver power amp, the Pxm-450, from a shop which had it "new old stock" from I don't know how many years..today my tech and I tried to power it on with his keyboard, just to see if it worked..Well, the lights shows after 1-2 seconds (but maybe this is normal..).
But, after some minutes, when he was playing chords with the amp set in mono/bridge operation, 450 watts at 8 ohms, with the level knob at 12 o'clock, the red Protect light shows up and "cut" the sound, for lots of times..And it wasn't very loud I think, really..not 400+ watts at last..!
The Clip led never lights up though..
Is this normal? What kind of problem could be..?
Thanks to everyone who can help me..!!!!
..Please sorry for my english..!
