Powersoft debuts Quattrocanali amps8 February 2017
The Quattrocanali Series has been launched at ISE. The new 1RU four-channel amplifier platform features Powersoft’s switch-mode power supply with power factor correction, smart rail management, and bridgeable switch-mode fixed frequency Class D output circuit topology.
It includes three models: the 1200W per channel at 8ohm Quattrocanali 4804 (offering 1500W per channel at 2ohm and 3000W bridged at 4ohm); the
600W per channel Quattrocanali 2404, which additionally offers 800W per channel at 2ohm and 1200W bridged at 4ohm; and the Quattrocanali 1204, offering 300W per channel at 8 ohm, 500W per channel at 2ohm and 1000W bridged at 4ohm.
The switching mode power supply enables the Quattrocanali to be fitted inside a 1RU enclosure. Powersoft says this means that more amplifiers may be carried within a single shipment, reducing CO2 emissions generated by moving large volumes across the world. In addition, the company claims the design reduces the need for external outboard, while a low thermal dissipation rating makes the use of external cooling superfluous. Powersoft further claims these features enhance Quattrocanali’s performances by recycling the otherwise wasted speaker reactive energy, delivering more stable power throughout the spectrum.
Quattrocanali is available in both DSP and non-DSP versions, both fully remote controllable via standard GPI/O connections on the back panel, Powersoft’s proprietary Armonìa software, dedicated web app, or third party application.
Marc Kocks, business development manager for Fixed Install, Powersoft, said: “The new Quattrocanali series meets the requirements for small and medium applications where channel count is limited, but the need of a flexible product to work with Hi-Z and Lo-Z systems is a must.”
