PCA 500

Power amplifier for installed sound installations.

The PCA 500 is a 480 W power amplifier designed for installed sound applications that explicitly require high power level and sound quality.

It features a 3 band equalizer, a balanced input with XLR and Jack connectors. It is suitable for low impedance speakers (4-8 Ω) and high impedance (70/100 V). It is possible to connect several units through the Link outputs, on either XLR or Jack.

Thanks to its signal auto-compression function, the PCA 500 is protected from speaker short circuits. The output signal automatically drops down if the temperature starts becoming too high: it protects itself and a front panel LED indicator illuminates. An overvoltage protection eliminates current fluctuations and inrush.

Connection example: Conference room

Audio driven by 100V line speakers and reinforced with 2 subwoofers in parallel using the 4Ω. output.
