QSC RMX Series Amplifers

The RMX Series amplifiers from QSC deliver true professional-quality performance at an affordable price. There are four 2-rackspace models ranging in power from 430 to 1200 watts per channel at 2 ohms and two 3-rackspace models that provide 2000 to 2500 watts per channel at 2 ohms. All models feature a comprehensive feature set built on a compact chassis that's only 400mm deep. User-defeatable clip limiters and selectable low frequency filters are included to enable users to optimize sonic performance.

The QSC RMX Series amplifiers give you clean, dynamic power with the legendary QSC sound quality and reliability that professional sound engineers depend on. With over 30 years of building amplifiers for the largest touring companies and venues around the world, you can count on QSC's reputation for designing the most reliable amplifiers available.

RMX amplifiers deliver true studio-quality sound. A full complementary output circuit using the highest-grade linear output devices delivers ultra-low distortion (<0.05% THD) and a ruler-flat frequency response.

Extensive use of surface mount technology (SMT) triples the small-signal component density, enabling QSC to pack up to 2400 watts of power into the compact chassis. Unlike many other designs, the output devices in RMX Series amplifiers are direct mounted onto the heat sink for optimum thermal coupling and cooling.


Features
