San Diego, CA – CEDIA EXPO – September 6-9, 2017 – SR-14 – Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leading supplier of high-output loudspeakers and DSP-programmable amplifier systems is pleased to announce two new models: the DMA-1508B 8-channel balanced amplifier and SCRS-25im in-wall, multi-use loudspeaker. When installed together, the SCRS-25im loudspeakers and DMA-1508B amplifier provide the dynamically-thrilling, high-resolution audio experience customers have come to expect from PRO, but at a new lower price. The combination is perfect for multi-purpose and media rooms, or even high-output distributed audio applications.
Featuring the very latest PRO power and DSP technology, the DMA-1508B amplifier provides 8-channels of clean power and balanced analog audio inputs with matching looping outputs – all in a one rack unit (1U), fan-less chassis. Balanced inputs, unique among 1U, 8-channel amps, make the DMA-1508B much less susceptible to system-based ground noise than amps with single-ended operation only. Like all PRO amplifier products, the DMA-1508B utilizes PRO’s proprietary SoundTools™ DSP control software which allows high resolution digital signal processing for loudspeaker filtering and EQ, signal routing, user gain and delay adjustments, and up to eight user parametric EQ filters per channel.
Flexible by design, the DMA-1508B features two 300W channels, plus six 100W channels natively. Each 100-watt channel pair can be bridged to deliver 300 watts, meaning integrators can also deploy the DMA-1508B in configurations of 3x 300W + 4x 100W, or 4x 300W + 2x 100W, or for a maximum total power of 1500 Watts, 5x 300W. The channel gains of the DMA-1508B are normalized by PRO SoundTools™ software to match those of PRO’s higher-power PMA amplifiers, regardless of bridging configuration, making it easy to configure and mix and match amps within complex systems.
The new SCRS-25im is PRO’s most accessible high-output loudspeaker to date. Bringing PRO’s signature sound quality and thrilling dynamics to installations where budget and space are limited, the SCRS-25im employs the same genuine professional-grade speaker components as PRO’s popular SCRS-25ica in-ceiling speaker, including a ¾-inch high frequency compression driver mounted on a proprietary horn, and dual high-power 5-inch long-throw woofers. The SCRS-25im has a low-frequency sensitivity of 96dB/W, high-frequency sensitivity of 109 dB/W and a frequency range of 80Hz – 18kHz. Designed for front and surround, distributed audio, on-wall or in-wall applications, the SCRS-25im makes PRO systems more attainable for those looking for uncompromised sound.
“The DMA-1508B and SCRS-25im evolved from two of PRO’s most popular products and were created in response to specific dealer needs,” said Paul Hales, President and Product Designer of Pro Audio Technology. “Offering unique features and PRO performance at more attainable prices, we expect the new designs to become cornerstone models within PRO’s range of professional-grade home audio products.”
