The QSC CX108V is a lightweight, rackmount, 8-channel 70V power amplifier with a custom security cover, built primarily for use in fixed installation sound systems. The 100 Watts/Ch. @70V unit, which may be bridged for 4 - 7 channel operation, offers a solid complement of controls and indicators, with detented rotary gain control knobs, LF filter switches, and clip LED's. Also featured is a set of 4 HD15 Dataports, one per channel pair, which enable computer-networked remote amplifier management and signal processing, using QSCcontrol software.

The CX108V is equipped with a varispeed fan cooling system with rear to front airflow, and the energy-efficient Powerwave technology for the switching power supply. The Powerwave design sends current to the amp's power circuitry via a very low impedance circuit, charging the supply rails a staggering 230,000 times a second. The result is a consistently clean signal and predictable power distribution, with lowered thermal buildup and improved signal reproduction

The CX108V incorporates the design, cost-effective operation, and performance features that QSC is able to implement after three decades of experience building amplifiers serving all professional sound markets.
