Extron introduces world’s most powerful pro-grade half-rack amp
Extron has released the XPA U 3502, a high-performance ENERGY STAR qualified audio power amplifier delivering two 350W channels into 8Ω in a 1U, half-rack device.
It’s convection cooled, UL 2043 rated for plenum installation and comes with hardware for rack mount configurations. It also gives integrators the ability to install high power amplification without using rack spaces for ventilation, conserving precious rack space.
Additionally, it comes with an advanced Class D amplifier design with power factor correction, ultra-low inrush current, defeatable auto standby with fast wake up and Class D Ripple Suppression.
“This much power in a half-rack amplifier is unprecedented,” Extron vice president of sales and marketing Casey Hal l says.
“When combined with one of our half-rack DSP units, like the DMP 64 Plus, you now have the ability to deliver a very capable audio switching, DSP and amplification system in a single rack space.”
