• Powersoft strengthens T Series amplifier platform


    Italian manufacturer Powersoft has announced two additions to its touring amplifier platform, the T Series, which will allow the company to almost entirely replace its K Series.

    Powersoft introduced the T Series in 2019 for amplifiers in live sound applications, featuring daisy-chained Ethernet connectivity; Dante networking; power sharing; pmproved DSP with advanced EQ groups, and FIR filtering.

    Now, the T902 and T904 are being been introduced to extend the applications of the T Series.

    The T902 is a 2-channel amplifier specified to deliver 4000W at 2 Ohms, 3200W at 4 Ohms, or 1800W at 8 Ohms, and its high rail voltage and peak current on the outputs make it appropriate for driving large 4-Ohm subwoofers (like dual 18’’) or 2- and 3-way line arrays.

    The other new addition to the T Series family is the 4-channel T904, which can deliver 1800W at 2 Ohms, 2000W at 4 Ohms, or 1600W at 8 Ohms. This new amplifier platform is designed to power Bi-amped systems like stage monitors, 2-way point source speakers, and 2-way line sources, as well as smaller sub woofers.

    Much like the rest of the T Series family, the new T902 and T904 feature onboard DSP (with Raised Cosine EQ as well as IIR and FIR filtering), built-in Dante inputs, and live impedance monitoring, as well as Powersoft’s Active DampingControl™ for cable resistance compensation.

    “Most live sound amplifier families will feature lower voltages for smaller and lower cost products,” said Marc Kocks, manager of Powersoft’s Application Engineering team. “In smaller systems, however, it is quite common to have a single 8 Ohm loudspeaker per channel. This presented an opportunity for our development team to make a very homogenous amplifier range in which all models can deliver the same high output voltage, so that smaller models can also play ‘full SPL’ on 8-Ohm speakers.

    “This makes the smaller models more affordable by saving in the power supply and output current capacity, while providing a solid feature set for the entire product family. With the addition of the T902 and T904 to the T-series it will be able to serve as a flexible and reliable workhorse for any live sound system.”
