Dynacord Introduces IPX Series Installation Amplifiers With OMNEO IP Networking Architecture

New models provide 5,000 to 20,000 watts output, 96 kHz DSP, FIR-Drive processing, and Dynacord Eco Rail technology designed to save power.

The new Dynacord IPX 20:4 offering 4 channels of 5,000 watts at 4 Ohms.

Following last year’s premiere of the C series, Dynacord has just introduced the bew IPX series of multichannel power amplifiers that incorporate proprietary OMNEO IP networking architecture.

Designed for mid- to large-sized permanent installations, the IPX series includes three 4-channel models and an 8-channel model specified as capable of delivering power density of 5,000 watts, 10,000 watts,  20,000 watts from a single amplifier with all channels driven.

IPX series offers flexibility for a variety of installation scenarios via several power drive options utilizing Dynacord’s patented VLD (Variable Load Drive) technology as well as newly developed parallel and bridged parallel operation modes. VLD technology (IPX5:4 and IPX10:8) allows the available output power of 1,250 watts per channel to be used at either 4 or 8 ohms, or via 70 or 100-volt lines in direct drive mode.

The integrated OMNEO interface with a primary and secondary port allows the use of eight channels from a Dante audio network, while remote and supervision parameters run on OCA protocol (AES70), open for third-party integration. Redundancy options include RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) to suit individual requirements and existing infrastructure.

The new Eco Rail technology is stated to help reduce overall power consumption by up to 50 percent. The DSP-controlled amplifier and power supply constantly monitors up to 280 parameters simultaneously for challenging operating conditions such as mains power fluctuations.

The IPX series offers 96 kHz high-resolution digital signal processing and internal analog-to-digital conversion with low latency. The three DSP blocks are split into user, array and loudspeaker processing controls, each with a range of equalization, delay, level options and even asymmetric filters to adapt to a variety of applications.

Remote control and supervision is available via IRIS-Net software, and it allows the IPX series to be integrated into both existing and new installations.

Model Overview:
— IPX 5:4 (4 x 1,250 watts @ 4 ohms)
— IPX 10:8 (8 x 1,250 watts @ 4 ohms)
— IPX 10:4 (4 x 2,500 watts @ 4 ohms)
— IPX 20:4 (4 x 5,000 watts @ 4 ohms)
* Measured with all channels driven
