Crest Audio has unveiled the C1 Series of contracting and installation amplifiers, featuring class-D topology, onboard digital signal processing, Dante networking and USB/Ethernet connectivity for monitoring and control.

The C1 Series currently comprises four models – the C1 86k 8-channel amplifier (750W/channel into 4Ω), C1 48k 4-channel amplifier (2kW/channel into 4Ω), C1 44k 4-channel amplifier (1kW/channel into 4Ω) and C1 25k 2-channel amplifier (2.5kW/channel into 4Ω.

All models incorporate a efficient switch-mode power supply and class-D circuitry with full bandwidth PWM modulators for ultra-low distortion, high efficiency and superior circuit protection. The clip/limiter function provides output monitoring to prevent speaker damage with gentle gain reduction at clip threshold as well as efficient heat dissipation and overheat protection for uncompromised reliability.

C1 Series amplifiers are contractor-friendly thanks to the use of Euro connector inputs and barrier strip outputs as well as fault relays and CV (control voltage) inputs.

C1 Series amplifiers are also capable and sophisticated loudspeaker processors thanks to a powerful internal DSP engine with sampling rates of 96 kHz, 24 bits, and 24-bit AD/DA conversion. Loudspeaker system is managed with IIR HP/LP crossover filters, RMS compressor, parametric EQ, alignment delays and white/pink noise.

Users can set parameters, select input source and load presets via the convenient front panel LCD touchscreen. A Dante network module enables primary and redundant connectivity to a digital audio network and allows seamless external control and monitoring of the amplifier. The C1 Series will be fully integrated with Peavey’s MediaMatrix hardware and NWare software, allowing signal distribution, control and monitoring of the C1 Series amps in MediaMatrix projects. The C1 Series power amps may also be integrated with other DSP/control platforms that support Dante audio networking. Applications for these powerful, networked multichannel power amps include stadia, transportation hubs, theme parks, arenas, convention centres, retail spaces, or any other projects requiring high-quality, reliable networked audio.
