By PSW Staff • May 2, 2012 Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company is now shipping its new four-channel CP-450 and 16-channel CP-1650 audio amplifiers. Designed to complement RTI’s eight-zone AD-8 distributed audio system, these new amplifiers provide an additional 50 watts per channel to extend speaker outputs in larger installations. “Our AD-8 distributed audio system provides 25 watts per channel, which is ideal for most installations, but larger rooms and subzones might require more speakers and more power,” says Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “We are pleased to offer our dealers a powerful, cost-effective solution to this installation issue with our new CP-450 and CP-1650 amplifiers.” For optimal performance, the CP-450 and CP-1650 feature the same proprietary Cool Power technology used by the AD-8’s built-in class D amplifier. In addition, the CP-1650 offers audio input level adjustment on each channel, unique loop-in/loop-out connections for simple daisy chaining, and bridgeable audio outputs for increased power to a whopping 100 W. For added flexibility, the CP-450 and CP-1650 amplifiers are suitable for rack-mount or freestanding installations. Convenient power control from different sources is made possible with voltage trigger, RS-232, and IR power control options. For situations that require more than one amplifier, voltage trigger and IR pass-through allow for control of an additional unit. The CP-450 and CP-1650 are now available at MSRPs of $699 and $1,499, respectively.
