AQ Series

The AQ series is the best solution for those sound reinforcement applications requiring a multichannel amplifier with a mid output power density and a ver y good sounding characteristic but on an affordable budget. Implementing Power Factor Correction (PFC) technology along with Universal Mains Regulated SMPS power supply and Class D power modules, the AQ series combines in the same amplifier all the functional requirements for most sound reinforcement applications.


  • Class D power modules.
  • Universal mains Regulated SMPS.
  • XLR signal input and link connectors.
  • SpeakON NL4 and binding-post output connectors.
  • Input sensitivity selector (0.775V / 1V / 32dB).
  • Routing mode selector (stereo / bridge / parallel).
  • Channel independent protection and clip warning indicators on the front panel.
  • Channel independent power and -5dB/-10dB/-20dB/ signal presence indicators on the front panel.
  • Low unit weight.
