In 2010, Powersoft, entered into a strategic partnership with EAW which would allow both companies to integrate proprietary EAW DSP algorithms into Powersoft’s K Series power amplifier line when equipped with DSP modules.
This month Powersoft has announced that the latest software upgrades for Powersoft’s K Series DSP amplifiers now support EAW Focusing as a result of this collaboration between EAW and Powersoft engineers.
“EAW users will benefit greatly from Greyboxes residing within the K Series DSP,” explains Thomas Mittelmann, Powersoft business development manager. “Powersoft’s greatest fortes, performance and efficiency integrated with EAW Focusing, will create systems that provide an unprecedented level of sound reinforcement excellence.”
End users powering EAW systems with K Series DSP amplifiers will experience all of the advantages of Powersoft technology including universal switch mode power supplies with Power Factor Correction (PFC) and patented Class D technology. K Series amplifiers offer >90% efficiency resulting in more overall power from less rack space and a reduction in amplifiers required per system.
Powersoft’s state-of-the-art DSP circuitry – Active DampingControl, LiveImpedance Measurement, TruePower Limiter and other unique features – paired with EAW Focusing creates a fully integrated system package that sets a new standard in performance, handling and reliability.
The K Series consists of six models ranging from 2 x 2400 watt/channel @ 4 ohms to 2 x 9000 watts/channel @ 2 ohms – all within a single rack unit. All of the K Series amplifiers are incredibly light-weight and extremely efficient.
End users can obtain Greybox files from EAW and load them into the Powersoft K Series DSP platform utilizing Powersoft’s Armonía Pro Audio Suite software to facilitate system management.
The latest Armonía Pro Audio Suite software version as well as a Greybox-specific plug-in and the required amplifier and DSP firmware are available as free downloads from the Armonía support forum within Powersoft’s website.
