QSC has expanded the options for Q-Sys network power amplification with a range of eight channel units. Designed specifically for integration with the Q-Sys Platform, the new amps are designed specifically for the Q-Sys platform take advantage of a ‘whole system’ design philosophy where they can be configured and managed just like any other Q-Sys element.
Like the four-channel CXD4 amps, QSC has expanded its offerings with eight channel versions which also feature QSC’s Flexible Amplifier Summing Technology so channels can be combined for higher outputs across fewer outputs.
Two versions of each amplifier size are available. CXD8.8Q and CXD8.4Q offer eight mic/line inputs directly on the back of the amplifier so that remote Q-Sys system inputs and outputs are located in a single device. But as a cost saving option where only network amplification is required CXD8.8Qn and CXD8.4Qn only offer network inputs. Both models include eight bi-directional GPIO connections that can be used for analogue or digital inputs or outputs to/from the Q-Sys Platform.
