Hello everybody, my name is Nic
Bit of a long post but if you bought these amps you really wanna read this, trust me.
I have recently purchased an FP 14000 from Sanway (220V) which I'm going to use to run four RCF LF18G401 speakers into two horn loaded cabinets.
I haven't had the opportunity to run both at full power for now as only one of the two cabs is ready, but I have some doubts.
1) The power cord has a Schuko connector which, as far as I know, should be able to hold up to 16A. However, the FP 14000 should definitely pull more than that, say 30A+ so am I missing something or they have built an amplifier with a connector not capable to hold up its current draw?
If that is the case what would the amp do? Would it still draw 30A from a 16A socket through a 16A connector?
2) This one's a bit more frightening, after hearing and seeing so much PA equipment I could remember hearing some speakers from the brand "AdMark" few years ago. The setup I heard had 3*Line Array boxes and two double 18" reflex subs, the quality was very good and the power was surprising.
I knew their products were built in China but the whole thing LITERALLY disappeared from the web. Their products, website, reviews and whatnot have suddenly gone missing and I couldn't find them anymore.
But then, after 3 years I have found something really creepy: youtube [dot] com/watch?v=OtSE8iYOR6k
(replace [dot] with . as I am new here and couldn't post links for the first 5 posts)
This is an old showcase video of Admark and guess what you can see at minute 2:07? That's right, the same exact copies that Sanway is producing nowdays. The internals are IDENTICAL to the four-channel version (FQ10000?), the frontal plate has the exact same amount of LEDs and inscriptions as Sanway's, other copies from other brands have different labelling and LED layout, the back of the amplifier is IDENTICAL in every aspect be it labelling nor connectors and such.
The video was uploaded in 2010 and the specs state that these amps were class H so is Sanway ripping us off with the TD class thing and all the other stuff aswell?
