PM-2LR Digital Amplifier

Passive or self-powered and networked, you can choose the system configuration that meets your needs. Select the DRS18-2B when the project dictates the use of external amplifiers and the self-powered DR18-2R for convenience and control in other applications.

The PM-2LR, the heart of the PowerNet DR18-2R is a new kind of intelligent electronic system. It combines Class D digital amplification with RHAON, the Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network for comprehensive DSP controlled signal processing and control.

RHAON empowers you with CobraNet digital audio distribution, user configurable DSP for maximum control, remote systems management from any Windows computer, life safety functions and more – all using standard Ethernet hardware and cable.

The PM-2LR has dual analog inputs, dual CobraNet inputs and an AES3 serial input. The onboard DSP is easily configured using RHAON software; it includes eight bands of parametric EQ, high and low shelving filters, delay and input level control. Critical operating parameters such as signal clipping, amplifier output voltage and current, and temperature are continually monitored with automatic alert functions.
