QSC GX5

The QSC GX5 power amplifier features dramatic styling, easy hookup and adjustments, excellent audio quality and QSC reliability. The GX5 delivers just the right amount of power to the most popular speakers used by entertainers. Most loudspeaker manufacturers recommend an amplifier with power output equal to the speaker's "Program (Music) Power" rating or two times (2 x) the "Continuous (RMS) Power" rating.

  • 8 ohms / 1 kHz (both channels driven): 500 W
  • 8 ohms / 1 kHz (single channel driven): 600 W
  • 4 ohms / 1 kHz (both channels driven): 700 W
  • 4 ohms / 1 kHz (single channel driven): 850 W

The QSC GX5 uses a Class H system, based on key elements of the PLX Series, 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.
