EAW debuts UXA4416 class-D amplifiers

Eastern Acoustic Works says that through the creation of its own line of amplifiers, it is unifying all EAW system packages

Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) has debuted its new UXA4416 amplifiers along with a companion update to its Resolution software. UXA4416 represents a new generation of EAW four-channel DSP amplifiers, offering high-power class D amplification and analogue/digital audio management.

EAW says the UXA4416 amplifiers pair well with the brand’s KF and SB Series products for KF passive line source systems deployed at stadiums, arenas, houses of worship, amphitheatres, or outdoor festivals.  

“Through the creation of our own line of amplifiers, we are unifying all EAW system packages,” said TJ Smith, president, EAW. “Our ongoing strategy makes cross-rental more predictable and reliable by deploying products that are optimised by EAW engineering.”

Now operating at 96Khz, EAW says the amps improve system interoperability and offer reduced latency compared to previous UX and UXA products, which can be vital for live performance applications. In addition, 4 x 4000W Class D amplification and 40-bit floating point DSP ensure powerful, high headroom audio capabilities on large-scale deployments. 

UXA4416 amplifier presets unify the performance of all supported EAW professional speakers and arrayed systems with four processed channels of audio amplification, complete with a dedicated Greybox preset library. Resolution software provides a path to remote management and amplifier grouping of an entire EAW speaker ecosystem.

UXA4416 offers both analogue and digital audio inputs, with configurable General-Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) and Dante connections available for digital network input options.

The Resolution 2.11 update is a companion release that provides support for UXA4416. It also contains improvements to the software’s GUI and Array Assistant, a more efficient RSX/NTX firmware upgrade procedure and updated KF210 Voicing. An updated version of AC6 Firmware is also available.
