* GX amplifiers deliver just the right amount of power to the most popular speakers used by entertainers.
Typically, loudspeaker manufacturers recommend an amplifier w/power output equal to the speaker's Program (Music) Power rating or two times (2 x) the Continuous (RMS) Power rating.
The GX3 is ideal for speakers in the 300 watt (Program) range, while the GX5 provides full performance for 500 watt (Program) speakers.
The GX7 outputs 725 watts into an 8 ohm load.
Owners of popular 4 ohm loudspeakers (such as dual-woofer, two-way models) will find the 700 watt (4 ohm) power of the GX5 an ideal match while the GX7's 1000 watts will very capably power many of today's popular subwoofers or two typical 8 ohm speakers per channel.
