The QSC GX3 professional power amplifier uses the latest evolution of the QSC Grounded Collector output system, for optimum cooling of the critical power transistors. A true Class B biasing system combines maximum thermal efficiency with excellent audio performance. The GX3 power amplifier is ideal for professional entertainers who require maximum performance and portability on a limited budget. This power amp is ideal for speakers in the 300W (Program) range, supplies maximum possible power to 4-ohm and 8-ohm loads, and features easy hookup and adjustments. The GX3 uses premium toroidal power transformers for reliable "mid-weight" performance. A variable-speed fan moves air crosswise through the amplifier, drawing cool air in over the power transformer, through the fan, and then over the heat sink. This keeps the transformer cool and allows a full size heat sink to fit in a down-sized chassis. GuardRail protection delivers full peak power while preventing detrimental overloads. During excessive clipping, or extreme overheating, GuardRail reduces gain just enough to preserve the integrity of the audio and protect the speakers without unprofessional distortion levels or shutdowns. A subwoofer reduces strain on the full-range speaker, allowing it to play louder, or letting a smaller speaker do the same job. The GX3 supports this mode with a Crossover switch that splits the full-range input entering Ch 1, sending 20 Hz - 100 Hz to the sub (Ch 1) and 100 Hz - 20 kHz to the top box (Ch 2). The front panel gain controls balance the sub and top box, while GuardRail optimizes peak power into the sub and top individually, for greater musical impact and dynamic range.

Tried installing this GX series amp after a Crown failure.The amp is fairly lightweight and versatile,and installed easily. However, the client noticed the fan noise right off, which is louder than the previous Crown. The amp is located in a somewhat remote room off the main room, and the door may be closed to accommodate,which is the only reason the client allowed it to stay. I would not install a rack full of these in any place needing a quiet situation. Live use and single use will work.
