GX5 amplifiers are ideal for professional entertainers who require maximum performance and portability on a limited budget.

QSC's GX5 uses a Class H system, based on key elements of the PLX Series, almost doubling power while staying 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. The GX5 provides full performance for 500 watt (Program) speakers. It supplies maximum possible power to 4 ohm and 8 ohm loads. QSC designers have optimized output and appearance while reducing raw material cost and weight. It's all here - dramatic styling, easy hookup and adjustments, excellent audio quality and QSC reliability.

Features:

  • Power levels matched to the most popular speakers used by entertainers
  • Optimized for maximum real-world headroom into 4- and 8-ohm speaker systems
  • Inputs: XLR, 1/4-inch TRS and phono input connectors for compatibility with any source
  • Outputs: Speakon® combo accepts 1/4-inch (TS) plugs or Speakon 2- and 4-pole plugs (connects 2 poles only). Binding posts support all other speaker wiring systems
  • Minimum depth chassis (10.1-inch / 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
