Overview

The DCM500 is a robust but compact 500 watt booster amplifier. With Dual fans and built in trickle charge circuitry in a 2RU chassis, we’ve made the DCM 500 built tough for testing of constant voltage installations.

Highlights

  • 240VAC/24VDC operation
  • Balanced XLR input with parallel output
  • Overload and overdrive protection
  • Fan cooling with auto temperature sensing
  • Built-in emergency trickle charge circuitry
  • Transformer balanced XLR input and output
  • Output level 10 stage LEDs
  • 100V, 70V and 4 ohm outputs
  • 2RU
