Powersoft announces the expansion of the successful Ottocanali series, with the addition of three new high-performance 8-channel power amplifiers for fixed installations.
Ottocanali 4K4, Ottocanali 8K4 and Ottocanali 12K4 have been designed to work at low or high impedance, can run at 2 ohms as a standard operational parameter and can power 70V and 100V distributed lines without the need for external transformers.
Powersoft’s unique approach to Class D amplification gives the amplifiers high output power – up to 12000W over eight channels for the largest model – and the expected high sound quality.
Every amplifier in the series has two universal switch mode power supplies with PFC (Power Factor Correction) each independently powering a set of four channels.
In addition, patented SRM (Smart Rails Management) technology maximises the efficiency of the system, drastically reducing the power consumption at any load and usage condition.
“In designing the Ottocanali series, we have concentrated on three main features - efficiency, flexibility and reliability,” explains Claudio Lastrucci, Powersoft’s R&D Director. “The result is a series that minimizes power consumption, can be used in a vast array of different applications and that can be trusted to perform year after year. A valuable asset for system integrators and one less thing to worry about.”
Ottocanali 4K4, Ottocanali 8K4 and Ottocanali 12K4 expand the Powersoft range of installation amplifiers joining the smaller Ottocanali 1204 and the high powered Duecanali amplifiers.
The new Ottocanali series will be presented to the public for the first time at the ISE Trade Show in Amsterdam from the 29th to the 31st of January 2013
