Get the perfect amount of power with the GXD8 from QSC. This 2-Channel 800W Power Amplifier matches the most popular loudspeakers while optimizing real-world headroom. Great for speaker processing, this power amp features E Series Entertainment System DSP Tunings, and includes precision rotary encoders that allow you to calibrate gain and DSP parameters.

The GXD8 delivers high peak output power with up to 4500 watts. Other features include adjustable speaker protection for matching an individual loudspeaker’s power and impedance, as well as digital limiting that automatically prevents damage to the amplifier with rising temperatures or overdrive.

More about QSC’s GXD Power Amplifiers

Like all QSC’s products, the GXD series of power amplifiers are characterized by professional-quality audio, meticulous engineering, precision manufacturing, and long-term reliability. With a specifically-chosen power supply and precision-engineered topology, the GX Class-D amplifier series are also small and light without compromising on features, quality, or power.

Optimized to deliver maximum real-world headroom, GXD amps are ideal for incorporating into 4Ω and 8Ω loudspeaker systems. Their LCD allows you to control and monitor in dim lighting and includes three buttons for menu navigation, and two knobs for adjusting parameters. Edit, store, and recall up to 18 User Presets to match any configuration or system. Explore versatile connectivity options with parallel XLR and ¼” TRS connectors for inputs on each channel, and professional NL4 outputs. Binding post connectors enable mono and bi-amp speaker connectivity as well. Other speaker processing features include channel gain and polarity, 4th Order Linkwitz Riley high-pass and low-pass filters, 4-band parametric EQ, 50 mSec of alignment delay, QSC Smart Speaker Protection limiter, and much more!
