Why should I use a power amp?


Recommended Posts

You can't plug the Helix straight into a speaker box.  It needs a power amp.

But the L3t is not a simple speaker box - it has it's own power amp.

It is a 1400 watt power amp! - connected to speakers all in one box - that's why you wouldn't use a power amp - you already got one!

And you can't connect a power amp to an L3t - that would be plugging an amp into the input of an amp - you'd probably blow them both up!

Hope that clears up some people's understanding.

Three words: boom, fire, sirens. 


Don't do that... under any circumstances. You can't feed power into an already powered device that's expecting a line level signal. You'll destroy both units.
