Qsc cx302

Could the cx302 be used as a sub-woofer amp?

Yes, it can be but its output in Bridged mode is still only about 1200wats into 4ohms min. if your driver is lower than 4ohms you wont be able to use the amp in bridged mode and then you only get 600Watts into 2ohms

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: Qsc cx302

Is there anything better than the CX302 for a sub-woofer amp that is around $120? (it can be found on eBay for about that much)
I'm thinking of buying the CX302 because it is not as loud (I have heard a CX404 and it is quiet) or old as the others I've been looking at RMX850 etc.

Not really, thats about as good as it gets unless you get into the $250 range and up.

Re: Qsc cx302

Just curious, it has an input impedance of 6K ohms (unbalanced) but almost everything else i have seen has 10K ohms input impedance.
Is that a bad thing or is it just fine and I don't need to worry about it?
