Amplification & DSP
POWER FACTOR CORRECTION
PFC is a measure of how efficiently the load current is being converted into a more useful output current.
With PFC the power supply regulates itself when AC mains change, so the amp power output will not change with mains swinging. This system is also very environmentally friendly with a reduction of approximately 40% of current draw. It transforms the power consumed in to “useful power” producing less hum and distortion.
The Class D amplifier is characterized by high efficiency (low loss of energy), which results in smaller heat sinks and much smaller total power consumed by reducing the weight and size of the amplifier.
Class D amplifiers achieve about 80% higher efficiency than other amplifiers, whose efficiency is approximately 45%. There are significant advantages, the lower dissipation produces less heat, saves circuit board space and is of course much lighter.
DIGITAL PROCESSING & DOUBLE DYNAMIC
Latest generation 24bit/96Khz digital processor which optimizes the system components. It includes 2 channel processing electronics with functions for phase correction, driver protection, gain control , equalization, classic crossover and linear phase filtering.
The DSP incorporates sophisticated double protection limitation; RMS and Peak. The RMS limiter is used to adjust the transducer reproduction level, maintaining the original dynamics whilst at the same time respecting the original transients and achieving a better acoustical result.
The Peak limiter controls the movement of the speaker, protecting it from any damage and also reducing distortion caused by over-excursion. These double dynamics lower levels of distortion and provide protection for all the speaker components and internal electronics.
FLOAT POINT OPERATIONS IN DOUBLE PRECISION
The internal DSP processing works with double precision in floating point, achieving an internal resolution of 56 bits, one of the largest resolutions available on the market today.
This enables the use of high precision filters with extremely low distortion delivering unbeatable sound clarity and quality.
Automatic function to calculate cabinet splay angles. The inclinometer data can be viewed and controlled from the cabinet LCD display either manually or automatically.
The inclinometer automatically communicates with the DSP and modifies the equalization algorithms. According to the splay angle of the inclinometer the DSP compensates for atmospheric loss.
The result is a more efficient performance and a flat response, even at long distances.
ONLINE CONTROL SYSTEM
Software to control each cabinet in real time (via Ethernet or pc). The OCS obtain detailed information of the cabinet behaviour: RMS levels, Input clip, compression levels, power module temperature, air absorption compensation and cabinet angulation. OCS allows to control each cabinet: You can change the preset, gain, mute and polarity, activate the SOLO mode and the weather compensation.
