Controls


  • Level: Two front-panel rotary level controls, one for each channel.
  • LCD Screen: Back-lit LCD allows for crossover configuration, amp mode configuration and clip compressor configuration. Menu/Prev/Next: Three buttons located near the LCD screen that are used to configure and access the integrated processing.
  • Power: Front-panel switch; on when in the IN position. Blue LED will illuminate when on.
  • Circuit Breaker: Back-panel breaker provides overload protection.

Integrated Processing


  • PureBand Crossover System
  • Crossover Filter: Linkwitz-Riley 24dB per octave
  • Crossover Frequency Range: 50 Hz - 3 kHz
  • Crossover Mode: Crossover (CH1=LPF, CH2=HPF), Low Pass (both channels LPF), High Pass (both channels HPF), Bridge (LPF or HPF)
  • Peak Limiters: Channel independent clip limiter designed to provide maximum output while protecting your loudspeakers

Indicators


  • Signal Presence Indicators: Two green LEDs, one for each channel, illuminate when the channel's input signal exceeds 40 dBu.
    10 Indicator: Green LED flashes when output signal exceeds
    10 dB below clip.
    20 Indicator: Green LED flashes when output signal level exceeds
    20 dB below clip.
  • Clip Indicators: Two red LEDs, one for each channel, illuminate when the channel's output is being overdriven.
  • Thermal Indicator: Two red LEDs, one for each channel, illuminate when thermal compression begins.

Input/Output


  • Input Connectors: XLR (one per channel), 1/4 inch (one per channel), and RCA (one per channel). 1/4-Inch connectors can be used as loop-thrus to distribute signal to additional amplifiers.
  • Output Connectors: Two 4-Pole Speakon Output Connectors accept 2-pole or 4-pole Speakon connectors. The top Speakon connector is wired for both channels so it can be used for bridge mono wiring or for stereo wiring of two speakers to a single Speakon connector.
  • One pair of back-panel binding posts per channel; accepts banana plugs or bare wire. (European models do not accept banana plugs.)
