More power, less heat from XPA Ultra line
Anaheim, California – Extron is excited to announce the availability of the XPA Ultra line of power amplifiers, an engineering breakthrough that provides the ability to put more amplifier channels in a smaller space, with less radiated heat than ever before. All XPA Ultra amplifiers run cooler than other Class D amplifiers, extending component life and eliminating the need for ventilation rack space. The XPA Ultra lineup includes a new and improved ultra fast wake up from standby to ensure the beginning of audio is not cut off. An Everlast power supply, professional grade signal-to-noise ratio, ultra low inrush current, and our patented CDRS – Class D Ripple Suppression, are also part of the exceptional Extron technology found inside every XPA Ultra amplifier. These ENERGY STAR® qualified amplifiers deliver 35 watts or 100 watts per channel into 8 ohms or 70 volt systems.
“Extron pioneered the use of Class D amplifiers in AV applications and our engineers have continuously been developing unique, patented, high-performance power amplifier technologies.” Says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Extron. “An advanced thermal engineering design provides very high channel density that allows system designers to provide 16 channels of audio amplification in a single rack space.”
The XPA Ultra lineup of UL 2043 plenum rated amplifiers includes single and side by side rack mount hardware and a newly designed rear panel that makes installing the optional Flexible Conduit Adapter Kit easier than ever. Recessed, detented level controls with laser etched markings provide enhanced visibility and repeatability of settings.
