The Klipsch KDA Series DSP Amplifiers offer legendary Klipsch power and performance in a sleek, high-tech, 1 rack unit solution, with the KDA-500 boasting 500W of class G/H power, for clean, dynamic sound in any type of install. From small residential systems to massive commercial installs, the Klipsch KDA-500 is designed for maximum install flexibility - offering low impedance and 70V/100V compatibility for distributed line applications. These impedance settings are fully independent from channel to channel - so an installer can run one channel low impedance with another channel 70V/100V for full customization and optimization of their system. The KDA-500 boasts fully matrixed 4x4 I/O with fully balanced Phoenix connector inputs and Phoenix speaker outputs capable of connecting up to 12 gauge wire. For non-balanced connections, RCA inputs and outputs (throughs) are also built-in, making the KDA-500 one of the most flexible power solutions on the market today.
The myriad I/O, impedance, and acoustic settings are fully matrixed and customizable through the web-based DSP menu - simply plug in a laptop computer to the RJ-45 port on the back panel of the amplifier, enter the assigned IP address into your favorite web browser to pull up the easy-to-use, streamlined menu page. In addition to password protected channel assignments, gain settings, EQ, and limiting, the DSP provides presets for almost every Klipsch speaker on the market - optimizing acoustic performance and power handling for these products with a single click. Accessing the DSP wirelessly with a tablet, smartphone, or computer is also quick and easy when the KDA amplifier is plugged into the network’s wireless router.
Control input/output routing and selection, as well as channel gain setting and muting, via IP Ethernet network control drivers from Control4, Crestron, and RTI. Feedback from the amplifier can be visualized on the control system’s display. Additionally, the driver allows programmed automation events to control the amplifier and react to audio commands, all via the Klipsch amplifier's RJ-45 port.
