PQM series

The PQM series is our flagship touring grade 4 channel amplifier. Exemplifying over 15 years of research and development by SAE Audio, they feature our most advanced technologies in both Regulated Switch Mode Power Supplies and our patented Class I? power modules. The PQM Series amplifiers deliver a massive power density (5000W per channel @ 2Ω with the largest PQM13) with unprecedented sonic quality from a very lightweight 2 rack-space amplifier. With this rock solid performance and extreme efficiency, the PQM Series amps represent the industry standard for world-class professional touring sound reinforcement applications.
