Quick setup time
Setting up is a breeze. Just unclip the power amplifier from the rear of the speaker cabinet and plug in the leads stored in the rear of the other cabinet. Finally, mount the amplifier on a table or the supplied telescopic stand, turn it on and play.
The iPA500’s flexibility covers any scenario and more. With 10 inputs and two outputs plus a subwoofer and monitor outputs, it meets any requirement whatever the venue. Dedicated input for two Wireless Microphones adds to the versatility. The Class D Digital Amplifier punches out 400 watts RMS which is true power. (manufacturers frequently provide mythical power outputs forgetting to specify what watts). If you need enough power to fill an auditorium with quality sound then the iPA500 is your answer.
Go anywhere, do anything
Just plug in mics, CD players, keyboards, guitars etc. Switch on and play. Portable devices link in via Wi-Fi for Apple IOS and Android. All 10 inputs include 3 bands EQ, DSP Effects and gain control. Mic/Line switches select the correct channel gain structure.
EQ and Effects (DSP Digital Effects Processor)
If the presenter voice needs beefing up or just sounds wrong the ±15dB three-band EQ facility on every input saves the day. Tweak the guitar input for the best sound, add more treble if the CD player sounds dull and add more mid-band to a vocalist to cut through any mix. 16 onboard modifiable sound effects act on one or any number of inputs changing the character of any sound from a touch of reverberation on the voice to a tremolo on a keyboard. Input for an FX Footswitch.
The iPA500 is LOUD. A Massive Power reserve with Class D Digital Amplifiers delivering both quality and quantity. This newly developed digital amplifier is highly efficient so remains cool and reliable ready for continual use.
The hall may be reverberant, hard surfaces reflect sounds back to the microphone. Sophisticated active circuitry senses the onset of feedback and suppresses the offending frequency. Job done!
The heart of any sound system. 10” long-throw speaker cones displace masses of air. To keep distortion in check the bass driver features Hi Flux Ferrite Magnets delivering power to spare. The HF Treble Horn carries high frequencies from 2.5 kHz to 20,000Hz. With a 34mm fluid-filled voice coil heat is dissipated ensuring reliability. Dispersion is a massive 60 x 90 degrees, enough to reach all corners of the auditorium. Speakers can be laid on their side for stage monitoring. Convenient side mounting carrying handles makes transportation simple
The iPA500 is kitted out with masses of gain to capture the quietest sounds from both dynamic and condenser microphones. Condenser/Electret mics require phantom powering. No problem, just push the Phantom Power switch.
Crank up the Bass. For musical events added bass response livens up the show. The iPA500 includes a Subwoofer Out for feeding a sub-bass amp and woofer. For speech only events, a special Tone Control tailors the frequency response for even greater clarity.
See what is happening
Audio level status with LEDs from -10db up to Limiting at +8dB aids in setting the levels for the best sound.
The Switch Mode Power supply saves weight, is highly efficient and works on mains voltages between 100 and 240 volts which cover use onboard ships and liners.
Ten Digital Sound effects can enhance any presentation or performance. The iPA500 is loaded with effects to enhance any situation. The included effects are Rooms, Halls, Stage, Plate, Drum, Various Echos, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Auto Wah and Tremolo. These effects can be modified by Decay, Delay and Program Rate
Amplifier and Speaker Mounting
The amplifier clips into the rear of one of the speaker cabinets, the other speaker houses all the cables. This makes transportation and storage a breeze. Setting up time consists of unlatching the amplifier from one cabinet and retrieving the cable from the rear of the second cabinet. The Amp comes with an all-metal mounting bracket so that it can be mounted on the telescopic stand provided. Speakers include a 35mm socket for pole mounting
Studiospares Pro PA Speaker Stand with Carrying Bag
A pair of highly portable quality aluminium speaker stands with a 2015mm height and a 60kg load capacity which makes it second to none. The Heavy Duty Bag is manufactured from a tightly woven Black polycotton with heavy-duty red straps which support the weight, not the material. Supporting up to 60Kg of speakers two metres above the ground with entertainers and an audience around it’s reassuring to know the stand is the finest currently available. Carrying the stands around it soon becomes apparent they are made of aluminium, not heavy steel. Both the height adjusting sleeve and base that connects everything together are tough die castings and not plastic which becomes brittle left in a cold van overnight. The height adjusting sleeve clamp includes a steel retaining safety pin passing through the pole plus a woven nylon tie line to save the pin from being lost. To maintain the smart appearance the stand is Matte Black Powder Coated which is baked on for a long-lasting smart appearance.
