MX8-amp

Initially designed for multi-purpose applications, the coaxial technology has demonstrated numerous advantages over classic two-way systems which typically suffer from interference around the crossover point, resulting in lobing, uneven frequency and power response.

The MX8-amp Series deliver a complete sound reinforcement solution to fulfill the highest demands of audio professionals for both the fixed installation and rental production markets. The MX8- amp delivers ultimate sonic performance in a compact and multi-purpose package. The MX8-amp built-in electronics package features a new lightweight, two channel class D audio power amplifier designed specifically for Self-Powered products. The amplifier module is a sophisticated switch mode power supply, class-D amplifier design capable of delivering more than 2 x 500W RMS into 4 ohms and adding only 3Kg to the weight of the cabinet.
