The GXD series processing amplifiers are the latest additions to QSC’s line of amplifiers for entertainment and production applications. Housed in a 2U rackmount configuration, GXD series amplifiers feature class-D power devices for high power output in a lightweight chassis design. DSP processing includes high- and low-pass filters (24dB LR), 4-band parametric equalizer, signal alignment delay, and RMS/Peak speaker protection limiting. To allow users to get up and running quickly, 20 preset “starting points” for selected typical systems are provided. Additionally, GXD Series front panels include a power switch, four status indicators, and a large LCD screen that provides metering and status monitoring. The rear panels include XLR and 1/4in. TRS inputs, NL4 and binding post outputs, and the AC power inlet. With a solid 400W/channel at 8Ω (600W/channel at 4Ω), the GXD 4 (top) provides a max total peak power of 1600W while the GXD 8 (bottom) provides a robust 800W/channel at 8Ω (1200W/channel at 4Ω) with a max total peak power of 4500W.
