Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the manufacturer of high-output loudspeakers and DSP loudspeaker controllers, has created a new line of modular amplifiers consisting of five models, the MA-4400, MA-4242, MA-9900, MA-9942, and MA-9999. The line was developed to overcome supply chain challenges.
“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 loyal 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 normalize.”
The MA series of amplifiers are the result of that initiative and will allow PRO dealers to complete open and upcoming audio system installations during global supply chain uncertainty.
PRO’s modular amplifiers pack between two to four channels of up to 1000W each into a fan-less 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.
“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,” Hales said. “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 MA modular amplifiers are available to order now. Interested dealers, reps, and international distributors can visit the PRO website and contact PRO VP of Sales Mark Goldman, at: email@example.com for pricing and more details.
