QSC Audio Products has announced the GX7 as the newest model in its GX Series of power amplifiers. Engineered and assembled in the company's Costa Mesa, CA facility, the GX7 maintains all of the key form and functional elements of the existing GX Series while delivering more power in a lighter weight package; it features 725W per channel at 8 ohms and 1,000W per channel at 4 ohms, while weighing 15.5 lbs for the 120V version.
At the core of the GX7 is QSC's PowerLight power supply, resulting in "one of the highest power-to-weight ratios in the industry," according to the company. Cooling is aided with a low-noise, variable-speed fan with rear-to-front airflow. Like the GX3 and GX5, the GX7 features XLR, 1/4-inch TRS and phono input connectors, Neutrik speakON and binding post outputs, built-in subwoofer/satellite crossover control, detented gain knobs, front-panel LED indicators and GuardRail amplifier and speaker protection.
QSC expects to deliver the first production units in January 2011 and is currently taking orders worldwide.
