Outdoor speaker manufacturer, NEAR, a division of Bogen Communications, has announced the release of a power amplifier designed to deliver a lot of power to outdoor speakers.
The NEAR 7XL is a two channel Class D amp that delivers 700W per channel… enough power to get a noise complaint from someone who lives blocks away.
It is capable of either low impedance (4/8Ω) or 70V operation.
NEAR has designed the 7XL to be an easy set-up for integrators. The amp has 16 preset configurations programmed-in, perfectly crossed-over, equalised and power limited for the most common combinations of NEAR speakers.
Offering a full array of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) features, it allows integrators to control and optimise the performance of outdoor loudspeaker systems.
The DSP provides high and low-pass filters (crossovers) with slope and alignment control, 7-band parametric equalisation, time delay and dynamic range control.
The 7XL amplifier is expected to ship to dealers in January 2017.
NEAR is distributed in Australia and New Zealand by Avation.
