Ashly KLR Amplifier
Ashly Audio introduced its new KLR Series of high-performance, cost-effective amplifiers. The two-channel KLR Series amps, which range from 1000W to 2000W per channel at 2 ohms, are ideal for both professional audio and fixed performance installations that require sonic perfection across the audible spectrum, company officials said.
The KLR-2000, KLR-3200, and KLR-4000 are optimized to deliver high levels of sustained power and reliability into 2-, 4-, or 8-ohm loads in bridged, stereo, or parallel mono modes. Each unit uses a switch mode power supply to help make them lightweight and efficient. The output topography of the KLR-2000 and KLR-3200 are Class-AB, whereas the KLR-4000 is a two-step Class-H design. Guarding users' investment without sacrificing performance, the KLR Series amplifiers include output over-current protection, DC output protection, chassis internal temperature monitoring, inrush limiting, and a mains circuit breaker.
With comprehensive user controls and input/output connections, the KLR amplifiers will work in a wide array of applications, according to the company. The front panel includes individual input attenuators, forced air inflow vents with removable dust filters, a power switch, and LEDs for power, signal, clip, and protection. The rear panel includes a three-position gain switch (1V, 32 dB or 26 dB sensitivity), a three-position mode switch (bridged, stereo, or parallel mono), a three-position high-pass filter switch (30 Hz, 50 Hz or off), a limiter switch (on/off), and air outflow vents. Inputs include balanced three-pin Euroblock and a combination XLR/ 1/4-inch tip-ring-sleeve. Output connections are Neutrik Speakon. The power cord is permanently attached.
"Longtime Ashly users will recognize the KLR Series as the logical extension of our amplifier lineage, and new users will find value, performance, and reliability in the KLR Series that is unmatched by our competitors," said Dave Parse, CEO of Ashly Audio, in a statement. "The feature set, which includes filtering and protection circuitry, is sufficiently broad to accommodate the varied needs of a diverse professional audio industry, while at the same time avoiding seldom-used bells and whistles."
