Pro Audio Technology (PRO) announces a new line of modular amplifiers. The MA-4242, MA-9999, and MA-9900 provide integrators with a line of reliable amplifiers to power any PRO or third-party audio systems.
Available in September, PRO’s Modular Amplifiers pack four channels of up to 1000W each into a fan-less 2U chassis. When combined with PRO’s ALC-3316 loudspeaker controller/processors, installers can use the MA amplifiers to quickly and easily power, apply high-resolution DSP filtering, and calibrate any PRO sound system.
“Earlier this year it became clear that the worldwide shortage of digital and other electronic components was going to impact our ability to deliver our amplified loudspeaker controllers timely,” says Paul Hales, president and product designer for Pro Audio Technology.
“Knowing we had many loyal customers with projects in the pipeline, we got to work designing a new amplifier platform that could be manufactured consistently while we wait for the supply chain to normalize. The MA series amplifiers are the result of that initiative and will allow our integrators to complete all of their open and upcoming audio system installations despite global supply chain uncertainty.”
“By leveraging the powerful 96kHz/32-bit DSP capability of the ALC-3316, our dealers can now use the MA amplifiers to power larger PRO loudspeakers and subwoofers and do the signal processing for them inside the ALC unit. In this scenario, the ALC acts not only as an amplified controller for the smaller speakers in the system, but also as a multichannel digital signal processor for the MA amps – a testament to the flexibility and utility of our ALC models.”
