QSC's GX5 provides full performance for 500 W speakers. Owners of popular 4 ohm loudspeakers (such as dual-woofer, two-way models) will find the 700 W (4 ohm) power of the GX5 an ideal match.

The GX5 uses a Class H system, based on key elements of the PL Series, (PLX, PL3, CX, DCA) almost doubling power in the same size and weight. QSC design expertise allows the output devices to shift from low-power to high-power rails in less than a millionth of a second, ensuring that the output power is always right where it needs to be without excess loss.

FEATURES:

  • Power levels matched to the most popular speakers used by entertainers
  • Optimised for maximum real-world headroom into 4 ohm and 8 ohm speaker systems
  • Inputs: XLR, 1/4" TRS and phono input connectors for compatibility with any source
  • Outputs: Speakon® combo accepts, 1/4" (TS) plugs or Speakon 2-pole and 4-pole plugs (connects two poles only). Binding posts support all other speaker wiring systems
  • Minimum depth chassis (10.1" / 257 mm) fits in compact, inexpensive effects racks
  • Lightweight - GX3 and GX5 less than 26 lb (12.5 kg). GX7 only 15.5 lb (7 kg)*
  • Detented gain controls for precise setting and matching of sensitivity
  • GuardRail™ automatically protects the amplifier and loudspeakers from damage due to temperature rise or overdrive without shutting down the show
  • Front panel LEDs monitor power, signal and clipping
  • Subwoofer/satellite crossover built-in

* 230V 16.5 lb (7.5 kg)
