Powersoft has announced the Duecanali 804 and Duecanali 4804, a two-channel amplifier platform with optional DSP and Dante dedicated to the fixed install market.

Powersoft Duecanali The Duecanali 4804 provides 2 x 2.4kW @ 4Ω for small- to medium-size installations, while the Duecanali 804 offers 2 x 400W for installations in retail, as well as bars and restaurants where a single two-channel amplifier is the requirement, without the need for additional channels or power. The range is completed by the existing Duecanali 1602.

The Duecanali range is able to drive low impedance loads (2/4/8Ω) and 70V/100V distributed lines selectable per channel. Additionally, it provides more than 16 different possible output configurations (Lo-Z, Hi-Z, bridge mode, parallel mode, and combinations of these), delivering a maximum output power per channel of: 400W–1.25kW at 8Ω; 400W–2.4kW at 4Ω; 500W–3kW at 2Ω; 1-2kW at 4Ω bridged; 800W–4.8kW at 8Ω bridged; 400W–2.4kW at 100V and 70V.

The two new models available in standard or DSP+D versions which extend system performance with onboard high-end signal processing and Dante digital audio distribution. Both can be managed with Armonía 2.11 Pro Audio Suite version.

‘With DSP onboard, interoperability created via third-party plug-ins, networking and remote control, Powersoft amplifiers have been converted into smart controllers of the future,’ says, Powersoft Brand and Communication Director, Francesco Fanicchi. ‘This has great bearing on integrators involved in multiple disciplines like audio, video, ETH cabling, power distribution and UPS provision, meaning that the future becomes a whole lot easier.’

The Duecanali series now sits alongside Powersoft’s Quattrocanali and Ottocanali Series of fixed installation solutions, addressing the requirement for small and medium size applications where the channel count is limited and the need for a flexible product to work with Hi-Z and Lo-Z systems is a must.

Building on the success of the Ottocanali and Quattrocanali ranges, the two new Duecanali models not only benefit from Powersoft’s unmatched power to size ratio, but also boast the lowest thermal dissipation ratings in the industry, thus requiring no external cooling. Truly efficient, the amplifier recycles the otherwise wasted speaker reactive energy to enhance sound performances, delivering more stable power throughout the spectrum.

Duecanali, Quattrocanali and Ottocanali all feature Powersoft’s switch-mode power supply with Power Factor Correction (PFC), Smart Rail Management (SRM) and bridgeable switch mode fixed frequency Class D output circuit topology.  Combined, the three fixed install dedicated series offer a total of 18 two-, four- and eight-channel amplifiers: three DSP models in each series are complemented by DSP+D (Dante) versions offering enhanced connectivity and control functionality, which in turn ensures maximum design flexibility for the systems integrator. In addition, low power consumption, low maintenance, a long life cycle, along with the networking capabilities represent major advantages in terms of cost and time-savings for both the integrators and operators, turning the true COO into an extremely attractive proposition.

‘Powersoft’s DSP technology is recognised as an industry standard and can be found across our entire range, from the flagship touring product X Series to the eight- four- and two-channel fixed-install range,’ says Powersoft Business Development Manager for Fixed Install, Marc Kocks. ‘Powersoft offers the most advanced control and monitoring of the entire sound system with a matrix, raised cosine and FIR filters, delays and Powersoft’s unique active damping control, five limiters, live impedance monitoring and more. With the addition of these two Duecanali, we are confident that there is a product for any type of installation, from exclusive 20-seat restaurants to an 80,000-seat stadium.’

All three series of amplifiers integrate with a networking environment, through standard Cat5-cabled and Wi-Fi networks. Remote access via the Armonía Pro Audio suite allows for full operability, including monitoring and diagnostics, from a decentralised location – via laptop, PC, tablet or smartphone. The fully-customisable interface seamlessly integrates all devices in one screen, so that everything displayed can be monitored at a glance. Duecanali, Quattrocanali and Ottocanali can all be set up in offline mode so that work can be done on presets while unhindered operation continues. 

The Due/Quattro/Ottocanali series is fully remote controllable via standard GPI/O connections on the back panel, Powersoft’s proprietary Armonía software, dedicated web app, or third-party application. 

The two new models in the Duecanali Series ship in Q1 2018.
