The Powersoft K6 fills an important space in modern tour sound amplification, yet it takes up little room in its single rack space chassis. This two-channel, 1300 watt power amp is stable with 2Ohm loads and fits subs in smaller systems, as well as lows and mids in larger setups. The K6 can be upgraded to a K8 - without a replacing the entire amplifier - via a Step-Up card that offers more power with a safe investment.

The K Series is used worldwide by touring and event sound companies, and it's preferred among top-ranking system designers, sound engineers, and system techs, giving them reliable premier-grade power and headroom in the smallest possible package size.

Fully digitally controlled and with a serial PC communication port as standard, the K6 is also available with KDSP board and KAESOP Ethernet/AES3 interface. The K6 DSP+AESOP amounts to a fully integrated, highly sophisticated yet easy to use power source including sound shaping and system management capabilities - remotely controllable via Powersoft's Armonía Pro Audio Suite™ (Interface available for MediaMatrix, Crestron, AMXcontrol, Q-SYS and monitoring systems).

Powersoft K6 DSP+AESOP Features:

  • Power supply:
    • Advanced switch-mode worldwide operating power supply technology for high performance and compact size
    • Power Factor Correction PFC for extremely low mains consumption and extremely wide mains operating range
    • Low Inrush Limiting reduces AC inrush current, removing the need for expensive power sequencers
  • Protections:
    • Fully protected circuit design with:
    • Ac protection: shut down power supply when AC mains voltage is outside operating range
    • Clip limiter: prevents severely clipped waveforms from reaching loudspeakers, while still maintaining full peak power output
    • DC protection: protects against infrasonic signal at the outputs
    • VHF protections: protects the loudspeakers against non audible, strong, non musical high frequency signals
    • Short circuit protection: protects the amplifier from short circuit or other stressful events for the output circuits with automatic protection reset
    • Long term limiter: protects the loudspeaker against steady long term rms (non audio) signals reducing maximum output
    • Thermal protection: output stages operating temperature up to 80 °C (176 °F)
    • Temperature controlled continous variable speed fan, front to back airflow
    • Temperature forecast with LCD traced historical behaviour
