New York (June 25, 2010)—QSC has debuted its new CMX Series of power amplifiers, aimed at system integrators.
“The CMX Series provides unmatched performance, the right power for the job, and an affordable price point,” states Shawn Watts, Director of Installed Solutions at QSC. “Because CMX Amps are built with QSC’s proven and reliable power plant, integrators need not worry about return warranty calls than can hurt profitability.”
The amplifiers feature high-current toroidal transformers and filtering to ensure energy reserves allowing the amplifiers to handle high-level transients.
The CMX Series is available in four models the CMX 300V, CMX 500V and CMX 800V housed in a 2RU chassis design and the CMX2000V housed in a 3RU chassis design with power ranges from 185 watts to 2500 watts per channel. All models feature constant voltage output for distributed audio systems with the CMX300V and CMX500V offering it in mono-mode only, while the CMX800V and CMX2000V featuring constant voltage output in either mono or stereo-mode.
The output sections feature class AB and class H architecture (depending on power level) and class H output sections on the CMX800V and CMX2000V to reduce AC current. CMX amplifier output devices are directly mounted to the heat sink for thermal coupling and cooling. Likewise, all CMX amplifiers are protected from damage by output short circuits with automatic current limiting protecting the amplifier from damage until the short is corrected.
CMX Amplifiers also feature actively balanced input choices including barrier strip, XLR, and ?” TRS connections, as well as NL4 Speakon and detachable euro-style output connectors for flexibility during an install. 1dB recessed de-tented gain controls offer output level settings. Recessed rear dip switches offer selection between stereo, parallel, or bridged mode operation, and the ability to enable or disable low frequency filter protection. An integrated security plate is also provided to ensure tamper resistant installations.
