Quattrocanali 2404

4 x 600W Amplifier Platform

Quattrocanali 2404 offers the traditionally amazing sound quality and reliability of all Powersoft products.

The patented SRM (Smart Rails Management) technology allows to maximize the efficiency of the system and drastically reduce power consumption in any load and usage condition. Quattrocanali features the lowest thermal dissipation in the industry, reducing the need for external cooling devices.

Quattrocanali is designed to operate with lo-Z (from 2 Ω) and 70V/100V distributed lines or any mix of the two.

This Amplifier Platform can also be trusted in mission-critical applications, such as fire alarm systems, thanks to the cleverly engineered power supply that allows reliable operation even when connected to a UPS.

Power supply

  • Powersoft legendary universal switch mode power supply up to 400VAC tolerant with Power Factor Correction
  • Low Inrush Limiting reduces AC inrush current, removing the need for expensive power sequencers
  • Detachable AC mains cable with IEC C19/22.2 (16A for EU, 20 A for USA) socket

Protections
Fully protected circuit design with:

  • Ac protection: shut down power supply when AC mains voltage is outside operating range
  • Clip limiter: prevents severely clipped waveforms from reaching loudspeakers, while still maintaining full peak power output
  • DC protection: protects against infrasonic signal at the outputs
  • VHF protections: protects the loudspeakers against non audible, strong, non musical high frequency signals
  • Short circuit protection: protects the amplifier from short circuit or other stressful events for the output circuits with automatic protection reset
  • Long term limiter: protects the loudspeaker against steady long term rms (non audio) signals reducing maximum output
  • Thermal protection: output stages operating temperature up to 80 °C (176 °F)
  • Temperature controlled continous variable speed fan, front to back airflow
  • Temperature forecast with LCD traced historical behaviour

General

  • Fixed frequency switchmode output stage for high grade sound accuracy
  • Compact size - all models only 1 RU for reduced rack cost and space
  • Light weight - for easier racking and shipping: 7 kg (15.4 lbs)
  • Standard Phoenix connectors: analog audio outputs, aux supply, alarms and GPIO
  • Remotely switchable double input (main and aux) per channel

Settings
