QSC Introduces Eight-Channel CXD-Q Series Network Processing Amplifiers for the Q-SYS Platform

Easily integrate high channel count amplifiers with Q-SYS designs to take advantage of “whole system” design philosophies 06/01/2017

QSC Headquarters, Costa Mesa, CA (May 31, 2017) – [De]  QSC, LLC, is pleased to introduce the CXD-Q and CXD-Qn eight-channel network processing amplifiers. Designed specifically for integration with the Q-SYS Platform, these amplifiers can take advantage of a “whole system” design philosophy where they can be configured and managed like all other elements of a Q-SYS system. The CXD-Q Series also features the QSC-exclusive Flexible Amplifier Summing Technology™ (FAST), which enables the ability to combine up to four channels for higher output power – all with optimal energy and rack space efficiency.

“The release of an eight channel version of our popular CDX-Q Series amplifiers is a natural progression of our amplifier portfolio,” said Dale Sandberg, QSC Senior Product Manager. “We built on the four channel platform to create a more robust design and implementation. Combined with the power of Q-SYS, the CXD-Q amplifiers act as peripherals to any Q-SYS design to utilize the platform’s superior audio routing, processing and control.”

These models are capable of providing up to 8,000 W peak and 5,000 W continuous with low-Z, 70V or 100V direct drive available on all channels. The “Q” models offer eight channels mic/line input directly on the back of the amplifiers acting as a Q-SYS on-ramp for additional amplification. By contrast, the analog inputs have been removed on the “Qn” models, which help reduce system cost when a purely networked amplifier is needed. Both models include eight bi-directional GPIO connections that can be used for analog or digital inputs or outputs to/from the Q-SYS Platform.

Housed in a 2U rack-mount configuration, the eight-channel CXD-Q Series models replace equipment taking up nearly three times the rack space. In addition to their outstanding efficiency, all CXD-Q Series amplifiers include built-in energy saving modes ensuring cost savings without sacrificing performance.
