Having introduced its TriPhonic 2.1 power amplifier design, an integrated LR/sub system for small sound installations, 35 years ago, Amate Audio recently revived the concept with a class-D design – the TPD – incorporating onboard speaker management DSP, and appealing to installers and commercial audio contractors.

Amate Audio TPD3KNow the Barcelona loudspeaker company has extended the application potential of the platform with a higher power rated iteration – the TPD3K provides in excess of 3kW of combined power, with up to 750W continuous programme power each for the left and right channels, and 2kW for the sub channel (at 4Ω).

Onboard control DSP offers much of the operational performance advantage of Amate’s fully active loudspeaker systems, including remote PC based configuration via the company’s DSPLink software. Adjustable system parameters include highly accurate filters, parametric EQs, peak/RMS limiters, and delays enabling time-alignment of amplifier channels. System presets enable instant optimum configuration of a range of Amate Audio loudspeaker models in the most common applications. In the TPD3K these extend to control of some of the larger models in the Nítid series, including the largest N18WP and N218WP subs.

Comprehensive I/O comprises balanced XLR stereo inputs, left, right and sub speaker connectors on binding posts and Speakon connectors, and three discretely configurable DSP aux outputs on balanced XLRs for DSP control of a second 2.1 amplifier setup within a larger installation.

‘The exceptional utility of the TDP platform was readily appreciated by commercial audio customers,’ says Head of Sales, Jordi Amate. ‘As a means of rapidly and relatively easily providing a high quality power and control solution for smaller hospitality applications, it is largely unrivalled.’

The TPD3K’s power and performance premium comes with no increase in the TPD 2U-high 19-inch rack form-factor and (at 9kg) with just 1 kg of additional weight.
