Extron has announced the immediate availability of the Extron XTRA Series XPA 1002-70V, a half rack 1U, convection cooled power amplifier delivering two channels of 100 watts rms for 70 volt distributed speakers.

The amplifier features a 100 dB signal-to-noise ratio and 0.1% THD+N specifications.

The XPA 1002-70V features patented CDRS - Class D Ripple Suppression technology that provides a clean audio waveform and an improvement in signal fidelity over conventional Class D amplifiers.

The XPA 1002-70V is housed in a half rack width metal enclosure, conserving rack space and weighs 1.1 kg.

The XPA 1002-70V includes an auto power-down feature that automatically places the amplifier into standby after a period of inactivity, and consumes 10 watts when idle and less than 1 watt in standby mode.

The amplifier also has an inrush current draw to prevent power circuit overload that occurs when multiple amplifiers are switched on simultaneously. This feature eliminates the need for power sequencing in systems with multiple amplifiers in large centralised equipment racks, and prevents other equipment from experiencing power interruption from associated power surges.

The XPA 1002-70V is housed in a compact 1U, half rack width enclosure and is UL 2043 plenum rated when used with the optional Flexible Conduit Adapter Kit. This allows for a concealed installation above a drop ceiling to prevent theft while providing convenient placement of AV equipment.
