I'm one of the decision makers on a new speaker array we are looking at purchasing and installing in our church sanctuary. We have received a quote from a local company which includes 2 CX 1102 amps. They'll be driving 8 ohm loads, so able to supply 700 W/ ch. What I am wondering is this: is the CX line worth the difference in cost? I have used QSC amps on tour, and have always liked them, but it's been the RMX line. The CX 1102 costs $2300 A RMX and PLX in the same power range (775-800) are $1000 less. So a savings of 2 grand just on the amps.
Is there any argument that warrants the increase in cost to go with the CX line? This is something that may break the deal. We have very limited resources (it has taken over 5 years of yelling and screaming about our current system's problems to get this far) and the quote we received is way beyond our reach, so I am trying to see where we can trim the fat, without sacrificing too much quality.
Any opinions? Thanks!
