ISE 2018: Powersoft launching fixed install range with extended Duecanali Series
Company’s latest offering is a two-channel amplifier platform with optional DSP and Dante dedicated to the fixed install market.
The company’s latest offering is a two-channel amplifier platform with optional DSP and Dante dedicated to the fixed install market.
The Duecanali 4804 provides 2 x 2400W @ 4 Ω, a power output suitable to a wide range of projects, making it ideal for small to medium size installations. The Duecanali 804 offers 2 x 400W and represents a lower total power solution for installations in retail, as well as bars and restaurants where a single two-channel amplifier is the requirement, without the need for additional channels or power. The range is completed by the existing Duecanali 1602, which was launched at ISE 2017 and now sits between the two new products in the Duecanali range.
The new range is able to drive low impedance loads (2/4/8 Ohm) and 70V/100V distributed lines selectable per channel. It provides more than 16 different possible output configurations (Lo-Z, Hi-Z, bridge mode, parallel mode, and combinations of these), delivering a maximum output power per channel of: 400 to 1250 W at 8 Ω; 400 to 2400 W at 4 Ω; 500 to 3000 W at 2 Ω; 1000 to 6000 Watt at 4 Ω bridged; 800 to 4800 Watt at 8 Ω bridged; 400 to 2400 Watt at 100 Volt and 70 Volt.
The two new models are available in standard or DSP+D versions which extend system performance with on board high-end signal processing and Dante digital audio distribution. Both models can be managed with the newly launched Armonía 2.11 Pro Audio Suite version.
“With DSP onboard, interoperability created via third-party plug-ins, networking and remote control, Powersoft amplifiers have been converted into smart controllers of the future,” says Francesco Fanicchi, Powersoft’s Brand and Communication Director. “This has great bearing on integrators involved in multiple disciplines like audio, video, ETH cabling, power distribution and UPS provision, meaning that the future becomes a whole lot easier.”
Like Quattrocanali and Ottocanali, Duecanali features Powersoft’s trademarked switch-mode power supply with Power Factor Correction (PFC), Smart Rail Management (SRM) and bridgeable switch mode fixed frequency Class D output circuit topology. The entire amplifier series is fully remote controllable via standard GPI/O connections on the back panel, Powersoft’s Armonía software, dedicated web app, or third-party application.
The two new models in the Duecanali Series ship in February 2018.
