CREST AUDIO CD 1500 Professional Power Amplifier
The CD Series combines a linear power supply with a Class D output to deliver power in a compact, cost-effective package, with an efficient output stage to allow the power supply to handle heavy duty cycles without compromising sonic integrity. Versatile power points, multiple inputs and other features make the CD Series adaptable to nightclubs and high school gymnasiums alike, and every application between.
CD Series power amps include multiple protection circuits, such as ACL Active Clip Limiting, which automatically reduces gain at the onset of clipping to prevent amplifier and load damage. IGM Instantaneous Gain Modulation, which monitors load current to protect against overloading. AUTORAMP to prevent abrupt turn-on levels by gradually increasing gain when the amplifier is switched on. as well as short circuit, DC voltage, comprehensive thermal management, current in-rush turn on/off transient and sub/ultrasonic input.
