Extron Electronics is ready to rock that audio setup. The company just announced the XTRA Series XPA 4002 2-channel power amplifier.
This 1U amp is convection-cooled and prepared to crank 400 watts (RMS) per channel. Available in low impedance and 70-volt versions, the XPA 4002 comes packing a Class D amplifier design and the ENERGY STAR seal of approval.
Another interesting feature is CDRS, also known as Class D Ripple Suppression. This patented technology promises a smooth, clean audio waveform and better signal fidelity over traditional Class D amplifiers.
That said, it does that at half the size of most amps, making for a clean, compact installation.
“The XPA 4002 is our newest ENERGY STAR qualified amplifier that delivers a unique combination of high power output and very efficient operation,” says Casey Hall, Extron’s VP of sales and marketing. “It is ideal for driving high powered speaker cabinets or a large quantity of distributed speakers in large spaces such as auditoriums and houses of worship, while consuming less energy, running cooler, and taking up less space than competitive models.”
Other perks on the XPA 4002 include an auto power-down feature and an ultra low inrush current draw. It also boasts a low thermal dissipation under full load, which should keep those racks and equipment cabinets pretty cool.
