• Powerful 100W per channel driven by ICEpower modules to deliver a dynamic, high-resolution audio experience
• Bridgeable outputs provide double the amplification for areas that require more power

• Class-D amplification runs cool allowing you to stack one amplifier on top of another
• Fast wake-from-standby using 12V trigger for time-sensitive audio announcements and quick audio-zone startup
• Three power mode control options—12V trigger, audio sensing, or always on
• Standby mode saves energy when not in use
• Each zone can be independently linked to the global audio input to share one input across multiple sets of speakers
• Share an audio source across multiple power amplifiers using the global audio output
• Over-current and thermal protections prevent damage due to short circuits, incorrect wiring, or heat
• Rack-mount ears included
