Australian event specialist The Music Box has purchased six Powersoft T604 amplifier platforms, the latest in Powersoft’s line of touring products.

The Music Box All Series models are flexible, cost-effective, and can deliver the same high peak voltage, allowing high SPL even with single 8/16Ω impedance cabinets. This high voltage is also good for sharing power between the channels for applications such as bi-amped loudspeakers or subwoofers with passive tops.

‘These are the first Powersoft products we have purchased, although we have worked on events where they had been provided by other suppliers and event partners,’ says The Music Box National Account & Operations Manager/Production Manager, Patrick Withers. ‘We have always had a good idea of their product lines, all of which came with great reviews from our industry friends.’

The recommendation came from CX’s Jimmy Den Ouden, who works with The Music Box on events as an audio engineer: ‘Basically he was sick of pushing our extremely heavy amp racks around,’ Withers recalls. ‘We’re constantly talking about good replacements for the old amp stock and he highly recommend the T604 amps. Trusting his expertise, we gave them a crack and as soon as we fired up the PA we were sold. It really was night and day with the old gear.’

The T604 features input via Dante, AES3 and analogue. The Dante and AES3 solutions are optimised for daisychained distribution of two-channel audio for distribution to many amplifiers without the need for external switches, repeaters or splitters. ‘We now have standard amplifier and single amplifier sleeves with custom patch panels that allow us to use the one amplifier model for our entire PA inventory,’ Withers says. ‘They have been flying out of the door since we bought them.’

The Music Box recently deployed all six amps on a charity event that featured three stages along a 300m wharf and 15 stacks of distributed PA: ‘It was for one of our major clients, and because they happen to be a record company they have very high expectations for audio quality and coverage,’ Withers reports. ‘The T604s gave us the ability to control and monitor the entire system from one laptop at FOH. We also ran AES to all amps with analogue back-up in place, though all of the amps performed perfectly.’
