OverviewNXE Series 4-Channel Networkable Multi-Mode Power Amplifier with OPDAC4 & OPDante Cards
The unit shall be a 4 channel multi-mode amplifier capable of driving 2 Ohm loads at full power. The maximum rated output power shall be 800W per channel at Low Z, 70V, and 100V mode. There shall be an automatic but defeatable sleep mode consuming <1W, and instant standby mode controlled by contact closure or software. A switch mode power supply shall auto-detect 110 – 120VAC or 220 – 240VAC mains, and a Neutrik® powerCON shall be used for the AC cord. Each channel shall have selectable output mode of Low Z, 70V, or 100V, an 80Hz high-pass filter, input limiter, and input gain settings of 26dB, 32dB, 38dB, or 1.4V. Each channel shall have remote DC level control. Input connectors shall be Neutrik® XLR/TRS combo jack and Euroblock, while output connectors shall be Neutrik® speakON. The unit shall have a front panel power switch and level controls that can be disabled. LEDs shall indicate Protect, Sleep, Disabled, Com, and Bridge mode status, as well as Temperature, Output Current, Output Signal, and Clipping/Mute status per channel. The unit shall have Ethernet control with a real-time clock for event scheduling. The unit shall have serial data remote control, aux preamp outputs, preset control, fault condition logic outputs, optional network audio and AES3 digital audio capability with the addition of a 4-Channel DAC card. The amplifier shall have temperature dependent variable speed forced-air cooling. The unit shall weigh <25.9 lbs (11.7kg), measure 19”W x 3.5”H x 16.8”D (483mm x 89mm x 428mm), and mount in a standard 19” rack. There shall be a five year warranty for units purchased in the US. No other unit shall be acceptable unless all specifications represented herein are met or exceeded and submitted in writing by an independent testing agent.
The power amplifier shall be an Ashly nXe8004.
NXP MULTI-MODE AMPLIFIERS
NX Multi-Mode Power Amplifiers are designed to meet the most demanding live sound and fixed installation sound systems in stadiums, arenas, performance venues, worship spaces and convention centers.
Available in three amplifier series, NX offers 2 or 4-channel models as NX (base model series), NXE (networkable), or NXP (networkable + DSP).
All NX Models Include:
Class-D Switching Amplifier Technology. NX features a universal switch-mode power supply with Power Factor Correction (PFC) that operates from 70VAC to 270VAC.
Multi-Mode Operation. Selectable Outputs allow you to choose the desired output mode on each channel. Set the DIP-switch configuration for Low Impedance (2, 4, and 8 Ohm), or 25V, 70V, or 100V Constant Voltage and you’re set to go.
Energy Efficiency. NX has power-saving Ashly EMS™ (Energy Management System) which provides an automatic sleep-mode drawing less than 1 Watt (defeatable).
Ethernet Control using Protea™ NE software. Also, serial data control by Ashly programmable remotes or third party controllers, aux preamp outputs, instant standby mode, preset recall, fault condition logic outputs, optional Dante™, CobraNet™, or AES3 digital audio capability (factory-installed).
Real-Time Clock with Event Scheduler. Assign automatic execution of selected functions and tasks. The event scheduler is programmed from software and stored in the amplifier
Ashly Remote Control via iPad® app. Use our free Ashly Remote app available for custom design of secure wireless control over network
32-bit SHARC DSP Processing at 48kHz or 96kHz Sample Rates. Comprehensive software control of digital signal processing, matrix and auto-mixing, built-in signal generator for test tone and noise-masking, swept output load impedance monitoring. Use Ashly Remote iPad control to select DSP functions including gain, mute, matrix, A/B source select, PEQ filter level, and meters.
FIR Filter-Ready. Our PneS software will load a speaker manufacturer"s .fir or .csv file to achieve precision tuning.
nXp - Ethernet + DSP Series Additional
- Protea DSP including dynamics, gain, EQ, feedback suppression, FIR filters, matrix and auto-mixer, crossover, delay, and more
- Impedance monitoring of individual amplifier outputs for quick and easy diagnosis of potential speaker problems
- iPad control of select DSP functions including gain, mute, matrix, A/B source select, PEQ filter level, and meters
