Extron introduces the XPA Ultra FX Series, multi-zone audio power amplifiers, offering flexibility and InstaWake+ technology, allowing for easy configurations and ensuring optimal power delivery for large systems with multiple speaker types.
Extron has introduced the XPA Ultra FX Series of amplifiers, designed for multi-zone applications. These versatile amplifiers offer flexibility, dynamic power allocation, and power outputs ranging from 200 watts per channel to 400 watts per channel. With InstaWake+ technology, they ensure uninterrupted playback and a sleek fan-cooled enclosure, making them ideal for high-tech environments or discreet rack placement.
Extron is pleased to announce that the XPA Ultra FX Series, eight and four channel multi-zone audio power amplifiers are now shipping. Exceptional flexibility allows a single unit to be set up in a variety of configurations to support large systems with multiple speaker types. These amplifiers can simultaneously drive 8 ohm, 4 ohm, 70 volt, and 100 volt loads and are easily configurable per channel. Each channel of an adjacent pair dynamically draws power from the pair’s total wattage, delivering optimal power where it’s needed according to system requirements. XPA Ultra FX amplifiers feature Extron InstaWake+ technology, offering the ability to return to full power from standby in under 5 milliseconds. This ensures no part of the audio is ever cut off. With an appealing new design, the fan-cooled enclosure can be part of a high-tech aesthetic or hidden away in a rack, without requiring adjacent empty space for ventilation.
“Our XPA Ultra amplifiers quickly became industry favorites, so it was natural that we expand the line into higher power models” says Casey Hall, Chief Marketing Officer for Extron. “The XPA Ultra FX series also brings considerable flexibility, with the ability to drive multiple speaker loads at just the right amount of power per channel. We’re confident that these multi-zone amplifiers will earn a strong place in system designs.”
The XPA U 2008 FX offers eight channels up to 200 watts each. Utilizing dynamic power allocation, the amplifier can be easily configured to provide up to 400 watts per channel at half the channel count. The XPA U 2004 FX offers four channels at 200 watts and up to 400 watts per channel at half the channel count. The XPA U 200 FX and XPA U 2004 FX amplifiers are the new go-to solutions for any multi-zone application requiring mixed speaker impedances and power levels.
