Pro Audio Technology launches new series of modular amplifiers

With worldwide supply chain issues in mind, Pro Audio Technology (PRO) has introduced a new line of modular multi-channel amplifiers.

Designed to give integrators a collection of reliable amplifiers to power any PRO or third-party audio systems, the new range is made up of five models: the MA-4400 (450W x 2 channels), MA-4242 (450W x 2 channels, 200W x 2 channels), MA-9900 (1000W x 2 channels), MA-9942 (1000W x 2 channels, 450W x 1 channel, 200W x 1 channel) and MA-9999 (1000W x 4 channels).

“In 2021 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,” said Paul Hales, president and product designer for Pro Audio Technology.

“Knowing we had many local 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 normalise. The MA series of amplifier are the result of an initiative and will allow our integrators to complete open and upcoming audio system installations amongst global supply chain uncertainty.”

PRO’s modular amplifiers can handle between two to four channels of up to 1000W each into a fanless 2U chassis. When combined with PRO’s ALC-3316, PLP-8250, or PLP-8800 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.

Hales added: “By leveraging our line of loudspeaker controllers, 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 or PLP units. When using the ALC-3316, it 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.”

The new line of MA modular amplifiers are available to order now.
