MC2 EXPANDS LIGHTWEIGHT E SERIES AMPLIFIERS AT 2006 NSCA
NSCA EXPO, LAS VEGAS, NV, March 16, 2006 —
Leading UK-based amplifier manufacturer MC2 Audio Ltd. is expanding
its lightweight (switchmode) E Series with the introduction of the E4-75
power amplifier. This latest addition of the E4-75 power amplifier to
the highly successful E Series further underscores MC2 Audio’s
ongoing commitment to providing high quality, high performance solutions
to the fixed installation and touring sound markets.
The E4-75 comes after 18 months of development —
working closely with distributors and users alike — and is designed
for use in a wide variety of applications, including touring monitor
racks. The E4-75 is a 4-channel amplifier capable of producing 750W
RMS per channel into 4 or 8 ohms; it has automatic impedance sensing
and changes the power accordingly. MC2 had been receiving requests for
such a unit since the E-Series came onto the market in 2003. Much of
the R&D has been spent addressing the use of onstage monitoring.
Inputs are via four XLR sockets, which can be linked to the next channel
via a rear panel switch providing greater flexibility to supply more
speakers with the same input signal. Each channel has a separate Speakon
output socket provided but channels C and D are also routed through
the second set of pins on channels A and B Speakon outputs respectively.
This gives the user the potential of running two separate bi-amped wedges
from one amplifier, which could cut the number of monitor racks needed
by 50%. The E4-75 has five-segment LED metering for each channel and
an indicator to signal 4 or 8 ohm load. The E4-75 will also fit FOH
applications running small-distributed systems or mid/hi sections of
larger scale systems.
The E4-75 joins MC2 Audio’s E45, E25 and E15 amplifiers.
The E45 offers 2250W/channel into 4 ohms (with peaks of 4500W/channel
into 2 ohms; 1200W/channel into 8 ohms); the E25 is rated at 1250W/channel
into 4 ohms; and the E15 is rated at 750W/channel into 4 ohms.
E Series units are housed in a 2U chassis. All MC2 Audio products carry
a full 5-year warranty.
