Product Description

QSC's RMX 4050HD power amplifier represents the state of the art in professional-quality performance at an affordable price. Perfectly suited for a wide range of sound reinforcement applications including professional touring, performing musicians, and mobile DJs, the RMX4050HD is optimized to deliver high levels of sustained power, extraordinary audio performance, and road-proven reliability.

Like its smaller sibling (the RMX 1850HD), the QSC RMX 4050HD is 1 of 2 RMX "Heavy Duty" models designed to work as hard into 2-ohm loads as most competing amplifiers will at 4-ohms. With a 3-tier, Class H design, the RMX4050HD is extremely efficient at real world power levels. Less AC current is wasted and more goes into producing useful audio power. The QSC RMX 4050HD accomplishes all this with a standard 15-Amp plug.

Like all RMX amps, the QSC RMX 4050HD features balanced 1/4 in. TRS, XLR and barrier strip inputs, binding posts and Neutrik Speakon outputs, front-mounted gain controls, plus signal and clip LED indicators to monitor performance.

The QSC RMX 4050HD provides improved thermal performance that gives you higher continuous power in 2-ohms stereo or 4-ohms bridged applications

Features:

- Dual mono, high current power supply for increased reliability and performance
- 3RU chassis only 16 in. deep
- Professional quality performance--incorporates road-proven QSC designs
- High-current toroidal transformers for greater 2-ohm power and low noise
- Independent user-defeatable clip limiters reduce distortion
- Selectable low-frequency filters (30 Hz or 50 Hz) protect speakers and increase headroom
- Balanced 1/4 in. (6.3 mm) TRS, XLR, and barrier strip inputs
- Binding post and Neutrik Speakon outputs
- Front mounted gain controls for easy access
- Signal and Clip LED indicators to monitor performance
- 3-year warranty zZounds is an authorized dealer of QSC products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (34 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Worth every penny--affordable and efficient"
Sound: Sound quality is good. We only use this product live. We use 4 of these amps with 16 JBL SR4726 speaker cabinets (four per amp @ 4Ohms) and the sound quality is superb. Give them plenty of electric and don't over drive the system. Any Amplifier will reproduce the sound efficiently if the system is set up properly. Don't ask it to do more than it is capable of doing. Our Crown power Amps seem to work much better on the low end though. Feature: Turn it on and forget about it! Quality: So far--so good. We've used four of them fot the last 6 months and had NO problems. Value: Good value for the money Manufacturer Support: dont know The Wow Factor: This product met our particular needs in the price range and was suitable for the type of music that we play. Overall: hopefully we will keep these amps until we wear them out.We compared this product to Crown Amps(probably not a real fair assesment), but dollar for dollar we feel this product served our needs and was an affordable alternative. The fans are a little noisy, but tolerable.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
