1.2 The well-equipped service bench


To properly service RMX amplifiers, a technician needs the right tools. The technicians service bench should have the following equipment:
Digital multimeter with RMS AC voltage and current
Digital clamp-on ammeter
Dual-trace oscilloscope
Audio distortion analyzer
Non-inductive load resistors, configurable as 8 ohms (min. 500 watts capacity), as 4 ohms (min. 750 watts capacity), and 2 ohms (min.
1200 watts capacity)
Variable AC voltage source, such as a Variac or Powerstat variable transformer, with a rated current capacity of up to 25A (for 120V
models) or 12A (for 230V models)
Low-distortion audio sine wave generator
Philips and flat screwdrivers
Soldering iron with a fine tip (2560W recommended)
Rosin-core solder (60/40 or 63/37)
Long-nose pliers
Diagonal cutters
Wire strippers
Automated test equipment, such as an Audio Precision workstation, is very useful for servicing RMX amplifiers. Contact QSC Technical
Services to obtain applicable AP test files.

1.3 Working with surface-mount components


RMX amplifiers, like many modern electronic products, use surface-mount technology (SMT) components where appropriate in order to
make high-density circuitry that is reliable and economical to manufacture.
SMT components in the RMX amps are used in the small-signal and control circuits, so they do not handle significant amounts of power;
therefore, they are subject to very little stress and should seldom fail. Sometimes they do fail, or they require replacement for a performance
upgrade or modification. Thus, it is important to know how to work with SMT components.
Specialized tools and equipment exist for soldering, unsoldering, and removing SMT components quickly and
efficiently, but they are often expensive. Most SMT repairs, though, can be handled reasonably well with common
tools and equipment, such as tweezers, solder braid, and fine-tip soldering irons. The original factory components
are tacked to the board with a spot of glue, so you might have to apply some force to break the adhesive.

Two-terminal components (resistors, capacitors, diodes, etc.)


Removal
1 Use two soldering irons, preferably about 25 to 40 watts, with fine tips.
2 With a soldering iron in each hand, hold one tip on the solder at one end of the component and the other
tip on the other end (Figure 1.1).
3 Once the solder melts on both ends, grip the component between the two tips and lift it from the circuit
board.
4 Use solder braid and a soldering iron to remove the solder from the two pads (Figure 1.2).

Insertion
1 With a soldering iron and 60/40 or 63/37 eutectic-type solder, melt just enough solder onto one pad to
create a small mound (Figure 1.3).
2 Grasp the component in the middle with tweezers. Melt the small mound of solder with the iron and
place the component across the two pads (in the correct orientation, if the component is sensitive to
direction) and press it flat against the circuit board, with one end of the component immersed in the
melted solder (Figure 1.4).
3 Hold the component in place and take the soldering iron away. Let the solder harden to tack the
component in place.
4 Fully solder the other end of the component to its pad. Let the solder harden (Figure 1.5).
5 Fully solder the tacked end of the component to its pad (Figure 1.6).

Removal
1 With a soldering iron and solder braid, remove as much solder as possible from the middle terminal of
the component.
2 With a soldering iron in each hand, hold one tip on the solder at the terminal at one end of the component and the other tip on the terminal at the other end.
3 When the solder on both ends melts, grip the component between the two tips and lift it from the circuit
board. You might need to quickly touch the pad on the middle terminal with a soldering iron to melt any
remaining solder that might be holding the component down.
4 Use solder braid and a soldering iron to remove the solder from the three pads.

Insertion
1 With a soldering iron and 60/40 or 63/37 eutectic-type solder, melt just enough solder onto one pad to create a small mound of solder.
2 Grasp the component with tweezers. Melt the small mound of solder with the iron and place the component in the correct orientation
across the three pads and press it flat against the circuit board, with one terminal of the component pressed into the melted solder.
3 Hold the component in place and take the soldering iron away. Let the solder harden to tack the component in place.
4 Fully solder the other terminals of the component to their pads. Let the solder harden.
5 Fully solder the tacked terminal of the component to its pad.

Multi-pin components (ICs, etc.)


Removal
Removing a multi-pin SMT component is a delicate procedure. Ideally, you should use a soldering iron with an attachment that allows you to
heat all the pins simultaneously.
If such a soldering device is not available, use this procedure:
1 Use a soldering iron and solder braid to remove as much solder as possible from the pins of the component.
2 With fine tweezers, carefully try to lift each pin to see if its free. If its not, touch it with the tip of the soldering iron and if necessary, use
the solder braid to remove the remaining solder.
3 Repeat the process until all the pins are free and you can remove the component.
Insertion
1 With a soldering iron and 60/40 or 63/37 eutectic-type solder, melt just enough solder onto one pad to create a small mound of solder. It
is usually easiest to use a pad that corresponds to one of the end or corner pins of the component.
2 Grasp the component with tweezers. Melt the small mound of solder with the iron and place the component in the correct orientation
upon its pads and gently press it flat against the circuit board, with the appropriate terminal of the component pressed into the melted
solder.
3 Hold the component in place and take the soldering iron away. Let the solder harden to tack the component in place.
4 Fully solder the other terminals of the component to their pads. Let the solder harden.
5 Fully solder the tacked terminal of the component to its pad.

RMX Series Technical Service Manual

The RMX 850 and RMX 1450 have single-sided printed circuit
boards. The RMX 2450 uses double-sided boards.

1.5 Technical descriptions and


theory of operation
Note: Some of these descriptions concern circuitry that is duplicated
in the amplifiers two channels. For the sake of simplicity, the
descriptions are of Channel 1 only. Components in Channel 1 have a
3-digit designation with 1 as
+Vcc
the first digit; their equivalents in
Channel 1
Channel 2 have a 2 as the first
-Vcc
digit, followed by the same two
numerals. For example, R122 and
+Vcc
R222 have identical functions in
Channel 2
their respective channels.
-Vcc

Power supplies

Figure 1.7
Unlike other recent QSC amplifiers,
the RMX line uses strictly conventional power supplies, with large
transformers that operate at the 50 or 60 Hz frequency of the AC
line. The electrical current in the secondary circuitry is converted to
DC through a full-wave bridge rectifier. The resulting 100 or 120 Hz
ripple is filtered out by large capacitors that also serve as current
reservoirs for short-term, transient demands.
The supply provides a bipolar set of supply rails for each channel, with
equal quiescent positive and negative voltages, as shown in Figure 1.7.
Note that unlike many bipolar supplies for complementary transistor
arrangements, the secondary windings are not connected to ground at
the center. This is because the output transistors are directly mounted
to the heat sink, metal-to-metal, to maximize heat transfer; this grounds
the collectors, requiring somewhat different output and power supply
arrangements. The grounded-collector concept is described later in
this chapter.

In the RMX 2450, the


secondaries are tapped to
provide an intermediate set
of bipolar rails for the Class H
output circuitry. Figure 1.8

in this chapter.

Audio circuitry
The audio inputs are balanced to offer a reasonably high amount of
common-mode noise rejection. The input balancing is done using a
single op amp (one half of an NE5532 dual op amp) arranged as a
differential amplifier. The degree of common-mode rejection is
dependent on a close match between the input resistors (R100 and
R101 in Figure 1.9) and between the feedback resistor and the shunt
resistor (R105 and R106). The circuitry uses 1% precision resistors
to ensure at least 40 dB of common-mode rejection.

RIGHT ANGLE POT

To LM13600 operational
transconductance amp

Figure 1.9
The feedback and shunt capacitors, C101 and C103, add a first-order
high-frequency roll-off, down 3 dB at 88.4 kHz (over two octaves
above the high end of the audio spectrum). This makes the amplifier
less susceptible to RF interference, high-frequency oscillations, etc.
Also in this stage, the feedback loop contains one half of a 13600 dual
operational transconductance amplifier (Figure 1.10). The OTA is part
of the clip limiter circuitry; when the clip limiter is activated, a control
voltage increases the transconductance of the OTA, which essentially decreases the impedance of the feedback loop and reduces
the gain of the stage in order to reduce the amount of clipping.
The gain control uses a linear potentiometer, but the impedances
loading the wiper to ground make the pot approximate an audio
taper over most of its rotation. After the wiper, RC networks roll off
the low end, if the LF filter is set for that channel, at either 30 or
50 Hz, depending on the DIP switch setting on the rear panel.
The next active device is another 5532 op amp, U101:2. Its output
drives the driver transistors, which in turn drive the output transistors.
The output section has a Class AB+B configuration; the drivers (a
complementary pair, Q105 and Q106, comprising an NPN MJE15032
and a PNP MJE 15033) are class AB. A series network of two diodes
and a 100-ohm trimpot provide the small amount of forward bias on

The output of the op amp also drives a group of four diodes (D102,

the op amps output signal level is about 1 volt or less, which is all it
takes to drive the driver transistors.

the transistor pair to keep crossover distortion minimal. In parallel
with the trimpot is a 50-ohm thermistor with a negative temperature
coefficient; as the circuitry warms, its resistance decreases. This
reduces VBE on both Q105 and Q106, decreasing the bias current to
reduce the threat of thermal runaway. The base of each driver transistor
is tied to ground through a diode and a 2.2K trimpot in series; these set
the current limiting threshold for their respective signal polarities.
The collector of each driver transistor directly drives the bases of its
output transistors, which are the main power-handling signal
devices. If youre not familiar with the grounded-collector scheme,
the arrangement of the output transistors might look somewhat
strange: the positive voltage swings are handled by PNP transistors,
while the negative swings are handled by NPN devices. The
collectors all connect to ground, which allows them to be mounted
directly to the heat sinkmetal-to-metal, without insulators in
betweenfor the best possible transfer of heat away from the
transistors. The emitters of the PNP and NPN transistors are
coupled through resistors to the positive and negative supply rails,
respectively, forming banks of common-emitter circuits driving the
supply rails. Consequently, the devices drive the rails with the audio
signal, which rides atop the DC. The output to the speaker load is
taken from the point between the positive and negative reservoir
capacitors; this is also where the negative feedback is taken from.
The nature of this arrangement, with audio signal riding on the
supply rails, is why the power supply has no ground reference.
Another unusual characteristic of the grounded-collector output
section is that the signal at the output to the speaker is actually
opposite in polarity to the signal at the op amp output. This is why
the negative feedback resistor, R122, connects to the op amps noninverting input instead of the inverting input.
The output point of the circuit couples to the output connector
through an RLC network (R160, R161, R162, L100, and C124) that
serves as a high-frequency snubber and also helps keep the amp
circuitry stable when driving capacitive loads.
RMX Series Technical Service Manual

But because this point is within the overall feedback loop, when
clipping occurs, the op amp approcahes full open-loop gain and puts
out a much higher signal voltage to try to make the output signal
track the input. The four diodes rectify the voltage to drive the clip
indicator LED, LD100. The current exiting the full-wave rectifier
passes to ground through R127 and also drives the base of
transistor Q100 through R115. If the clip limiter is switched on,
Q100s emitter is grounded, and when the voltage across R127 goes
sufficiently negative to forward-bias Q100, which sends current
through R111 and R103 into the amplifier bias input of the operational transconductance amplifier (OTA), U10:1. The OTA is in the
negative feedback loop of U101:1, and increasing its
transconductance essentially reduces the impedance of the
feedback loop, which reduces the gain of the op amp stage. This
reduces the signal level until the amount of clipping is minimal.
When the clipping stops, Q100 is no longer forward-biased, and the
gain returns to normal.

DC protection
The RMX 2450 has a crowbar circuit, based on a triac and two
silicon controlled rectifiers, on the output to protect against DC
faults. If an amp channel puts out a DC voltage, which could be the
result of a component or circuit failure, it will first trigger either
D119 or D120, depending on the polarity of the voltage. The
triggered SCR will in turn trigger triac Q113, shorting the output to
ground through fuse F100. The fuse will blow, safeguarding the
speaker load from the DC fault.
The output sections of the RMX 850 and RMX 1450 are AC coupled.

Class H
The RMX 2450 utilizes a two-step Class H output section. It is
essentially a Class AB+B circuit but with two sets of bipolar supply
rails. On both the positive and the negative sets of rails, a comparator circuit, called a step driver, compares the audio signal to the
lower rail voltage. When necessary to fully reproduce the signals
voltage swingjust before the signal voltage reaches the lower rail
voltagethe step driver turns on a TMOS power FET to pull the
output transistors supply rail up from the lower voltage to the
higher one, and then back down again when the signal allows. By
keeping the transistors supply rails low whenever possible, the
devices dissipate less unused power and generate less waste heat,
making the amplifier more efficient than a straight class AB
amplifier with the same power points.
The comparators are 311-type ICs: U170 on the positive step and
U171 on the negative. Each one drives a high-gain complementary
transistor pair (2N3904 + 2N3906), which drive the gate of their
respective MOSFET.

Bridged mono operation and protection


When the amplifier is operated in bridged mono, its two channels
work in tandem to produce up to twice the voltage swing that a
single channel is capable of. To do this, Channel 2 produces a signal
identical to Channel 1s, but opposite in polarityin other words, a
mirror image.
Channel 2s signal feed (bus BR_MONO_FEED) is an attenuated
version of the signal on Channel 1s speaker bus. Closing DIP switch
#6 (set to BRIDGE MONO ON), connects the BR_MONO_FEED bus
on Channel 1 to the BR_RET bus on Channel 2. The BR_RET bus
drives the non-inverting input of op amp U201:2 directly.
With two channels operating as one, but each having its own
feedback and protection circuitry, it is vital to keep both running as
mirror images. A protection circuit monitors the balance between
Channel 1s and Channel 2s signals. Resistors R22 and R23 (R22A,
R22B, R23A, and R23B on the RMX 2450) are equal in value and

form a voltage divider between the two channel outputs. If the


output signals are mirror images, the voltage at the junction of the
resistors (bus BR_BAL) will be zero. If the signals are not mirror
imagesfor example, one channel is defunct, distorting, or reduced
in gaina voltage will appear on BR_BAL. Through DIP switch 7,
the BR_BAL bus becomes bus BR_CUT and feeds the bases of
transistors Q8 and Q6, which are part of a 4-transistor circuit across
the +15V and -15V rails that supply the op amps and the input
circuitry. If the voltage on BR_CUT goes positive enough to forwardbias Q8, the transistors collector will collapse the +15V rail. At the
same time, the emitter current from Q8 will flow through R25 and
into the emitter of Q7, forward-biasing it, too. The collector of Q7
will then collapse the -15V rail.
Similarly, if BR_BAL goes sufficiently negative, it will forward-bias
Q6, in turn forward-biasing Q9, and these will collapse the 15V rails.
With the rails collapsed, the op amp and the input circuitry will not
function, which will mute the audio.

3. Troubleshooting: Symptoms, causes, & remedies


When first checking the operation of an amplifier on the bench,
always turn your variable transformer down to zero before plugging
the amplifier in. After you turn the amplifier on, gradually turn up
the AC voltage as you observe the amplifiers behavior and its
current draw; this will help you determine what, if anything, is
wrong with it. If you see or smell smoke, flames, or any other signs
of short circuits or excessive current draw, quickly turn the AC back
down to zero. If no such problems occur, it is usually safe to turn the
AC up to the amplifiers full operating voltage for further testing.

3.1 Excessive current draw


The customer complains of blowing circuit breakers or fuses, or
burning smell or smoke.

Symptoms covered:
Fuses blow immediately
The amplifier quickly gets very hot
Line circuit breakers trip at turn-on
The amplifier hums loudly and the chassis vibrates
The amplifier emits smoke
The amplifier gives off a burning smell
If the symptoms indicate a possible problem in the channel circuits
or output sections, you can isolate either channel module from the
power supply by pulling its fuses from the AC board.

Possible situations:
Excessive current with no signal present
If the amplifier seems to run hot and draws higher-than-normal
current when idling at full AC voltage, the cause could be bias
misadjustments in the output circuitry of one or both channels. See
the calibration procedures in the next section. In the RMX 2450, the
cause might also be blown step FETs; see service bulletin RMX0006.
Fast increase in current draw (current increases rapidly at
only a few volts AC)
The main bridge rectifiers BR100 and/or BR200 (all models) and
BR101 and/or BR201 (RMX 2450) is reversed or shorted.
Supply clamp diode pairs D117 and D118 and/or D217 and D218
is reversed or shorted.
The drivers and/or power transistors is shorted on both polarities
(NPN and PNP) on one or both channels.
Moderate increase in current draw (current increases
slowly, doesnt become excessive until about of the
amplifiers full AC operating voltage)
One polaritys drivers and/or power transistors (NPN or PNP) is
shorted, on one or both channels.
Individual supply clamp diodes D117, D118, D217, or D218 is
reversed or shorted.
Bias diodes D108, D109, D208, or D209 or bias trimpots R131 or
R231 is open.
10

Slow increase in current draw (current doesnt become


excessive until about half of the amplifiers full AC operating
voltage; amplifier may pass signal)
The bias is severely misadjusted, or bias diodes D108, D109,
D208, or D209 is defective.
An oscillation is causing excessive current demand.
Runaway current draw (current increases sharply at about
25 to 33% of the amplifiers full AC operating voltage)
One or more reservoir capacitors is reversed. CAUTION: the gas
buildup in a reversed electrolytic capacitor can cause it to
vent explosively. Immediately turn off power and let the capacitor
cool down before replacing it.

3.2 Protection, muting, and turnon/turn-off delay problems


The customer complains of amplifier locking up, or not turning on
and off correctly.

Symptoms covered:

Both channels do not come out of protect


Amplifier will not thermally shut down when it should
Power LED doesnt light
Too little or too much muting delay
No clip limiting
Fan doesnt run, or runs always at high speed

Possible situations:
Both channels stay in protect after turn-on
Q4 or Q5 is shorted base-to-emitter.
Voltage across D8 should be 14 to 15 volts DC. If it is low, check
D8 and R10; also, C7 and C8 is leaky.
D9, R4, and/or R7 is open.
The amplifier will not thermally shut down when it overheats
Check for shorted D9, R4, or R7; check also for open LD1 (POWER
LED), R2, or R5.
Too much or too little muting delay
Excessive delay at turn-on: check for open LD1, R2, or R5; check
for incorrect R10 or R15; check for shorted D9; also see service
bulletin RMX0002.
Too short at turn-on (amplifier unmutes before the circuits stabilize,
causing a thump): check for incorrect or bad C7, C8, or R10.
Amplifier doesnt stay muted at turn-off: see service bulletin RMX0003
Power LED doesnt light
Check for open or shorted LD1; check R2.
No clip limiting
U10 is defective.
DIP switches SW1:1 or SW1:10 is defective.
QSC Audio Products, Inc.

Fan doesnt run


The fan is defective.
Check the fan connection to the AC board.
Check R1 and BR1 on the AC board.
Fan runs always on high speed
Q3 and/or U2 are shorted.
Check PTC thermistors R4 and R7.

R130 or R132 (Channel 1) or R230 or R232 (Channel 2) is open.

(RMX 850 and RMX 1450)
Check R118, R119, R218, and R219.
Excessive current draw with signal present (RMX 2450)
Check triacs Q113 and Q213.
Check D119, D120, D219 and D220.

3.3 Faults with signal present

3.4 Instability

The customer compains that the amplifier passes a signal but


doesnt run correctly.

The customer complains of gain problems, spurious noises, or oscillations.

Symptoms covered:

General output distortion


Ringing sound in loudspeaker trailing an audio signal
Excessive crossover distortion
The output waveform appears fuzzy on an oscilloscope
Distinguish among the different symptoms of fuzziness (instability),
ringing (momentary instability after a transition), crossover distortion (often causing ringing), or general distortion.

The output signal breaks up or is distorted


Ringing sound in loudspeaker when no audio signal is present
The output signal collapses when driving a normal speaker load
Supply rails OK with no signal, but collapse when a signal passes
The amplifier gets too hot
One channel clips prematurely
Excessive hum in loudspeaker when no audio signal is present

Possible situations:
The output signal breaks up or is distorted
(RMX 850 and RMX 1450) Check the hum-null resistors R118,
R119, R218, and R219.
Check the ground traces for continuity among speaker ground,
input ground, and AC ground.
Ringing sound in loudspeaker when no audio signal is present
Check C114, C124, C214 and C224.
Check or replace dual op amp U101 or U201.
The output signal collapses when driving a normal speaker load
R139, R140, R239, and/or R240 is misadjusted.
Check R118, R119, R218, and R219.
The supply rails are OK with no signal but collapse with a signal
C112, C113, C212, and/or C213 is leaky.
Check C114, C124, C214, and C224.
The amplifier gets too hot with no load
Bias trimpots R131 or R231 are misadjusted, burned, or open.
Bias diodes D108, D109, D208 and/or D209 are incorrect (should
be 1N4934).
If the amplifier is producing high-frequency oscillations, check
C114, C124, C214, and C224.
Check resistors R136, R137, R236, and R237.
Op amp U101 or U201 is unstable.
One channel clips prematurely
R146 or R147 (Channel 1) or R246 or R247 (Channel 2) are open.
R139 or R140 (Channel 1) or R239 or R240 (Channel 2) are misadjusted.
Check R157, R158, R198 (RMX 2450 only), D115, and D116
(Channel 1) or R157, R258, R298 (RMX 2450 only), D215, and
D216 (Channel 2).
(RMX 850 and RMX 1450) Check R118 and R119 (Channel 1) or
R218 and R219 (Channel 2).
RMX Series Technical Service Manual

Symptoms covered:

Possible situations:
General distortion in the output signal
Severe distortion, at any load, often with abnormally high current
draw: check the slew rate capacitors C114, C115, and C116
(Channel 1) or C214, C215, and C216 (Channel 2).
Moderate distortion, especially with light loading: stability
capacitors C124 and C126 (Channel 1) or C224 and C226 is too
high in capacitance; also check the slew rate capacitors C114,
C115, and C116 (Channel 1) or C214, C215, and C216 (Channel
2), and the output filter resistors R161, R162, R154, and R155
(Channel 1) or R261, R262, R254, or R255 (Channel 2).
Distortion with low gain: check the feedback shunt components
R120, R138, and C125 (Channel 1) or R220, R238, or C225
(Channel 2); also check for broken circuit traces around the
components; U101 (Channel 1) or U201 (Channel 2) is defective
or its socket is contaminated.
Ringing sound trailing the audio signal
This usually indicates marginal instability and is usually triggered
by the signal passing through zero volts (the crossover point).
Check the stability components and output filters.
With a sine wave test signal, use an oscilloscope to check for
excessive crossover notch at the output signals zero crossings.
Excessive crossover distortion (unbalanced, asymmetrical,
or excessively large crossover notch)
Severe crossover discontinuity: bias diodes D108 or D109
(Channel 1) or D208 or D209 (Channel 2) are shorted.
Moderate discontinuity: bias diodes D108 or D109 (Channel 1) or
D208 or D209 (Channel 2) are out of spec.
R131 (Channel 1) or R231 (Channel 2) is defective.
Base resistors R136 or R137 (Channel 1) or R236 or R237
(Channel 2) are open. Also check the NTC thermistors R134
(Channel 1) or R234 (Channel 2).

3.5 Power supply & rail balancing


problems
Symptoms covered:
Insufficient or excessive current limiting into a shorted load
Op amp rails too high with a shorted load
Uneven voltages on supply rails
A channels output current should remain unaffected when driving
resistive loads as low as 2 ohms per channel. When driving a short
circuit, the current limiting circuit should collapse the output to a
lower current. This is done by dropping the op amps supply rails
from a normal 1415 volts down to about 56 volts. Normally, the
output signal helps replenish the op amp supply rails through D115
and D116 (Channel 1) and D215 and D216 (Channel 2), but a short
circuit or excessively low load impedance prevents the replenishment, and the op amp rails collapse because they cant supply
enough current to let the op amp drive both the clip LED and the
driver transistors. The current limit trimpots R139, R140, R239, and
R240 permit adjustment of the current limit thresholds. See the
RMX calibration section of this manual for adjustment procedures.

Possible situations:
Excessive current into short (insufficient limiting)
If the op amp rails are dropping to 5 to 6 volts as they should:
the 5.6V zener diodes D107 and/or D110 (Channel 1) or D207
and/or D210 (Channel 2) are reversed or shorted.
If high crossover distortion is present: bias diodes D108 or D109
(Channel 1) or D208 or D209 (Channel 2) are shorted.
Excessive current into short (op amp rails are not dropping)
The op amp U101 (Channel 1) or U201 (Channel 2) is defective,
with insufficient output current.
Clip LED LD100 (Channel 1) or LD200 (Channel 2) and/or its
rectifying diodes (Channel 1: D102, D103, D105, D106; Channel 2:
D202, D203, D205, D206) are open.

When driving a short circuit, the output sections positive and


negative supply rail voltages should be equal, within 3 volts. If
they arent, check D107, D110, R146, and R147 (Channel 1) or
D207, D210, R246, and R247 (Channel 2).
or short (excessive or premature limiting)
Weak current into 2
Bias resistors R130 and R132 (Channel 1) or R230 and R232
(Channel 2) are too high.
Driver transistors (Channel 1: Q105, Q106; Channel 2: Q205,
Q206) have very low gain.
One or more emitter resistors in the output section are open.
, weak into short
Current OK at 2
LD100, D102, D103, D105, or D106 (Channel 1), or LD200, D202,
D203, D205, or D206 (Channel 2), are shorted.
Zener voltage of diodes D107 or D110 (Channel 1), or D207 or
D210 (Channel 2), is too high.

Current limits properly into short, but current is weak at 2


If the op amp rails are low (< 1415 volts) when driving a 2-ohm
load without clipping, check the resistors R157 and R158
(Channel 1, all models), R198 (Channel 1, RMX 2450 only) and
diodes D115 and D116 (Channel 1, all models), or R257 and R258
(Channel 2, all models), R298 (Channel 2, RMX 2450 only) and
diodes D215 and D216 (Channel 2, all models).
If the op amp rails are normal (1415 volts) when driving a 2-ohm
load without clipping, usually the output section gain is too low: weak
driver transistors, open output transistors, or open emitter resistors.
Check the value of the driver transistors emitter resistors, too:
R146 and R147 (Channel 1) or R246 and R247 (Channel 2).
Rail voltages unequal
The balance between the positive and negative rail voltages is set
by a voltage divider comprising resistors R118 and R119 (Channel 1)
and R218 and R219 (Channel 2). If the amplifier channel passes a
signal but clips unevenly due to unequal rail voltages, this voltage
divider is the likely culprit.

4. RMX calibration procedures


4.1 Setting bias
Always set the bias
after replacing any output or driver transistor.
after replacing any diode or resistor in the driver/output circuitry.
if the amplifier seems to run too hot at idle.
if the amplifier exhibits crossover distortion.
The bias network sets the quiescent base current in the NPN and
PNP driver transistors, which in turn sets the quiescent current in
the output transistors. The driver transistors should both be slightly
on at idle so that the transitions of the signal voltage between
positive and negative are smooth and free of gaps or glitches. Too
12

much bias current will cause the amplifier to run hotter than it
should, especially at idle, while too little will cause noticeable
crossover distortion, especially at low signal levels.
The amplifier circuitry must be cool, or at least within a couple
degrees of ambient air temperature, and the top cover must be
removed. If the driver and output transistors are significantly
warmer than the ambient air, leave the amplifier off and let it cool
before proceeding.
Before turning the amplifier on to set bias on one or both channels,
familiarize yourself with the locations of the trimpots (R131 and
R231) and the voltage measuring points so you can work quickly but
thoroughly. If the amplifier warms up before you finish setting the

bias, you will need to shut the amplifier off and let it cool down
before you resume.

Tools and resources you will need:

4.

Small flat screwdriver (non-conductive) for adjusting trimpots


DC voltmeter
AC power

Turn the gain control all the way up. Adjust trimpots R139 and
R140 equally until the current measured falls within the range
shown in Table 1.

5.

Turn the gain control all the way down and remove the short
circuit so the channel drives the 2-ohm load. Turn the gain control
back up until the output clips. The voltage at which the signal
starts to clip should fall within the range shown in Table 1. If the
clipping is asymmetrical, that is, the signal clips on either the
positive or negative side first, adjust R139 to make it symmetrical.

6.

Turn the gain control down. If the amp has begun to warm up
shut it off and let it cool a few minutes before proceeding with
Channel 2.

7.

Repeat steps 1 through 5 for Channel 2. Use trimpots R239 and


R240 to adjust the current limiting in steps 11 and 12.

8.

Turn both channels gain controls all the way down. Clamp the
ammeter onto one of the amps AC wires and check the amps
idle current. If the amplifier is still at about room temperature,
the idle current should match the value shown in Table 1.

Procedure
1.

Turn the amplifiers gain controls all the way down. No test
signal is needed.

2.

Plug the amplifier into an appropriate AC source. Turn the


amplifier on.

3.

Channel 1: While measuring the DC voltage across resistor R146,


adjust trimpot R131 to obtain the voltage listed in Table 1.

4.

Channel 2: While measuring the DC voltage across resistor R246,

5. Servicing RMX amplifiers


5.1 Mechanical disassembly and re-assembly
Replacing components will usually require removing the channel modules and/or AC board from the amplifier chassis, especially on the RMX 850
and RMX 1450, which have single-side printed circuit boards. The RMX 2450 has double-side boards; many of the through-hole components on
the upper side of the board can be unsoldered and soldered from the top side of the board, so removing modules or boards is not always necessary.
See the fold-out assembly guides on pages 25 and 26 in this manual for assistance.

NOTE: As viewed from the front of the amplifier, the left channel module is Channel 1 and the right is Channel 2 except in the RMX 2450; its
right module is Channel 1, and its left is Channel 2.

Removing the channel modules


1.

Disconnect the amplifier from AC power and allow at least 10 minutes for internal voltages to bleed down.

2.

Using a Philips screwdriver, remove the screws that fasten the top cover to the chassis. Also remove the top covers four recessed
screws that fasten it to the heat sinks. As you remove screws, set them aside, but also make note of where each type is used so you
can properly re-assemble the amplifier.

3.

Lift the top cover up at the rear and carefully pull it toward the back, removing the five hooks on the front edge from their slots in the chassis.

4.

Pull the gain control knobs straight off from the potentiometer shafts.

5.

Tip the amplifier up on its side and remove the four screws that fasten the heat sinks to the chassis.

6.

Set the amplifier back down and remove the screws that mount the channel modules to the chassis standoffs. There are six screws in
the left module and five in the right one.

7.

Remove the four screws that fasten the fan, fan shroud, and fan guard to the chassis. Lift the fan shroud out from the chassis; this will
give you room to properly remove the modules from the chassis.

8.

Disconnect the wire and cable connections to the channel modules. All of the connections are either detachable headers or -inch
quick-connect tabs that are disconnected by pulling them straight up. No unsoldering is necessary.

9.

Slide the channel modules toward the back so the potentiometer shafts and front panel LEDs are clear of their holes in the front panel.
Lift the channel modules out from the chassis.

10. Re-assembly is the opposite of disassembly.

Removing the AC board


The AC board provides AC voltage selection, rectification of the transformer secondary current, and a regulated DC supply for the cooling
fan. It seldom needs to be replaced unless it is physically damaged itself. Most failures involving the AC board can be repaired through
replacement of individual components.
WARNING: Regulatory agencies require that any operating voltage conversions from 120 volts to any other voltage be done only by QSCs
factory service. Any other operating voltage conversions may be done only by a QSC-authorized service center or international distributor.
1. Disconnect the amplifier from AC power and allow at least 10 minutes for internal voltages to bleed down.
2.

Remove the four screws that fasten the fan, fan shroud, and fan guard to the chassis. Lift the fan shroud out from the chassis.

3.

Disconnect the wires that connect to the channel modules. All of the large single wires attach to the channel modules with -inch
quick-connect tabs that are detached by pulling them straight up. The remaining three black wires disconnect at the left channel
module with a detachable header.
If you are planning to replace the AC board with another, carefully cut each of the transformer wires connecting to the board just above
its solder tab. You must leave enough slack to allow connection to the new AC board. Remove the old heat shrink tubing from the wires
and strip the wire ends about 0.25 inch or 6.3 mm.

4.

Remove the five screws that attach the AC board to the chassis standoffs. Lift the board out from the chassis.

5.

Re-assembly is the opposite of disassembly. If youre using a new AC board, slide new pieces of heat shrink tubing over the transformer wires before you solder them to the appropriate tabs on the board; after soldering, cover the joints with the tubing and use a
heat gun or other heat source to shrink them tightly.
