      Comments about QSC GX5 500 Watt 8 Ohm Power Amplifier:

      This amp is cold even in the few hours of work. It is very quiet and low roar. The only drawback is its weight.

            Comments about QSC GX5 500 Watt 8 Ohm Power Amplifier:

            Using this amp to drive two 15 inch subwoofers. Amp handles them without a sweat. Good quality build. Only con is the bright blue power on light; it is annoying, especially while watching movies using a projector in a dark room.
