Designing and building an amazing surround sound system begins with the right separates and paramount to the mix is the right multi-channel amplifier. This amplifier is a 5-channel Class H amp that supplies 180W per channel of clean power, and when paired with great speakers like ours, you’ll hear music and movie soundtracks with exceptional detail, accuracy and warmth. The advanced circuitry, wide bandwidth, and low distortion capabilities of this amp allow listeners to hear spine-tingling sonic nuances, and this beefy amp can be matched with even power-hungry in-wall or freestanding loudspeakers. Designed with a high-output toroidal power supply and ample heat sinks to keep things cool, this amp has a clean, brushed metal finish and front panel status indicators that add a high-tech ambiance to any equipment rack.
Includes Balanced and Unbalanced Inputs
This high current home theater amplifier includes both balanced and unbalanced inputs for more flexible installation options and cable runs. XLR inputs (balanced) include a ground wire which make it a good choice for long (up to 2000 ft) cable runs, while unbalanced (RCA) provide a more reliable signal on shorter runs.
Advanced Class H Hybrid Technology
Our amplifier is a Class H amplifier that combines the benefits of Class A/B in a more efficient package. Class H amplifiers are a variation of Class A/B amps but include high voltage and low voltage rails to modulate power consumption. When power is running high, the amp switches to the high voltage rails. When the amp is running low, it switches to the low voltage rails. The result is more efficiency, cooler temperatures, and a reduction in power consumption while maintaining the warmth and accuracy of a true A/B amp without the "digital" drawbacks (like interference) of Class D amps.
ACE (Architectural Ceiling Element) series ceiling speakers combine elegant, modern style with outstanding audio performance. Features include an 8” Kevlar® Woofer with Rubber Butyl Surround for long life, 1" Pivoting Titanium Dome Tweeter and up to 175W power handling. The micro-flange grilles have a thin (0.15") trim, giving the ACE speakers a clean and sleek appearance that seamlessly integrates into any design space. These flush mounted speakers are hardly noticeable; that is until they're playing. The micro flange grilles are attached by extremely powerful magnets that stay put for quick and easy installation. Adds less visual impact on your architectural audio installation. Our learning center has some great tips on how to install your speakers and how to paint the grilles as well.
There’s a reason our ACE870 has so many rave reviews, customers love the look, sound, and power of this heavy-duty Atmos-ready home theater ceiling speaker. Designed for High-End Audio systems, larger Home Theaters, or Commercial spaces such as Bars or Restaurants. The ACE870 can handle up to 175W of power so you can push volume levels without any sign of stress. Contour switches also allow you to tailor the bass and rebel to your preference.
The beauty of the ACE870 is in the design. The Mid-Bass driver is angled at 15°, which gives you more placement flexibility than standard in-ceiling speakers. This makes the ACE870 ideal for Dolby Atmos Surround Sound systems since you can place the speakers in multiple places to create an all-enveloping 3D sound experience.
