The PS8AMP is a dedicated amplifier that allows the PS8 Loudspeaker and optional LS400 Subwoofer to achieve exceptional performance from such compact packages. The integrated PS8 TDController provides crossover, sensed amplifier control and system equalisation optimised for the PS8 and LS400. Like all Nexo processors, the PS8AMP provides precision dynamic, voice coil temperature and diaphragm displacement protection through the use of selective Voltage Controlled Equalisers (VCEQs), reducing levels only at frequencies when and where necessary.
The PS8AMP has two inputs, L and R, and three outputs, L, R and summed LSub out. The PS8AMP Configuration switch automatically configures the unit for 2 channel mode (LSub Off), where the PS8AMP drives 2 to 4 PS8 Loudspeakers in stereo (2x 850 Watts/4 Ohms) or 3 channel mode (Lsub On), where the PS8 AMP drives 2 PS8 Loudspeakers in stereo (2 x 430 Watts/8 Ohms) and 1 LS400 Subwoofer (850W/4 Ohms) with a summed mono signal of the L+R input signals. Since the Configuration switch also rewires the output connectors and displays PS8AMP mode status with LED indicators, the PS8AMP minimises installation cost and complexity while ensuring faultless performance.
