NEXT-proaudio's PXA8001

NEXT-proaudio has developed the PXA8001 integrated rack solution (powered by Powersoft), designed for optimum performance flexibility and setup simplicity.

The new rack is the heart of the system and was configured to interface seamlessly allowing multiple configurations for the entire NEXT-proaudio’s PX System, capable of driving a very wide range of rig configurations with reliability and ample headroom.

Composed by an 8000 watt Powersoft amplifier module, featuring 4 output channels (4×2000 watts @4ohm), that was specifically designed for multi-way loudspeakers and asymmetric loads. The PXA8001 features a new power supply design equipped with PFC and featuring Smart Rails Management, to grant efficiency in all the driven ways. The high immunity to EMI interference is also a characteristic of this new rack.

This PX System Rack features a fixed switching frequency design of the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) block allowing for maximum performance, high predictability and immunity from intermodulation artifacts; all this with an additional and extensive set of protection mechanisms (power limiters, thermal shutdown, short circuit and overload, clip limiter).

The DSP audio processor unit protects controls and optimizes the entire system including
all the necessary signal processing, crossover filters, PEQ filters, All-Pass filters, delays and limiters.

The built-in port allows to access DSP processing capabilities directly from the PC running Powersoft Armonía software. For a versatile use, 4 different presets that can be selected by the user, PXH64 Flat, PXH64 Music, PXH95 Flat and PXH95 Music.

The PX Complete System is a complete plug’n’play, processor-controlled, horn-loaded stacking P.A. optimized for flexible, high power and modular array configurations. Presenting itself as a perfect alternative, can offer an easy setup, less cabling and very simple operation.

The PX system can offer high SPL, reliability, an aesthetic design and high sound fidelity throughout the venue. This system was designed for portable applications as well as small concerts. Side-fill or DJ monitoring are also one of the many applications covered by the PX System.

One Complete System can power another PX Slave System, composed by the same cabinets and using a PXA8000 Drawer Slave Rack instead of PXA8001 Power Rack, having the same look as PX System.
