12 ch pwr mixer, 8 Mono, 2 Stereo, 500 watts/ch 4½, reverb, 2 x 7-band EQ
The control surface is laid out in an uncomplicated format and the operator can easily see all connections for patching. Pre-fade sends (FB) and post-fade sends (FX) are clearly labelled and colour coded, and there are generous 100mm fader masters with a LED mute button, identical to the channel controls. There is a selection of 16 digital FX to complete the professional design.
2 dual stereo channels with RCA and TRS connectors and independent gain controls are included for FX returns and stereo sources, such as CD players and backing tracks. The RCA inputs can feed straight to LR, so providing extra returns. The stereo channels are furnished with 2 band EQ, and can be routed to all 4 auxiliary sends.
The PA12-CP contains a built-in amplifier, delivering an impressive 1 kiloWatt, able to run a regular stereo PA system with very little external equipment. Our objective was to produce a powerful, great sounding amplifier in a compact package for the high-end audio market. The result is not only a well voiced amp with loads of weighty power but also clear, transparent audio quality. Our unique ÔConstant PowerÕ system ensures that all available power is converted into useable speaker power so we can guarantee the full 500W RMS per side into 4 ohms OR 8 ohms.
A+B OUTPUT CHANNELS
The main amplifier outputs derive their source from a selectable combination of LR (stereo), L+R (mono), FB1 and FB2, and provide master level trim, meters, slave outputs, patch point for external processors, and the very precise 4 band semi-parametric equalisers. This is extremely flexible and means that the PA can be operated in many different ways. For example, the user may want to run a stereo house system with separate left and right speakers and no monitors, or a mono system with a foldback monitor. Alternatively, you may patch into a bigger house system and use the built-in amplifier to provide a pair of equalised stage monitors. The PA12-CP takes the concept of a ÔPA in a boxÕ a versatile step further.
