At the recent NSCA show, Bag End introduced its Minima One, a 1,000-watt, high-fidelity, high-efficiency internal modular amplifier that weighs five pounds. The module is available as an option on all but a few products in its product line.

According to company president Jim Wischmeyer, “It will provide an onboard powered system option that will ensure a reliable high-performance powered solution that sound designers and sound reinforcement contractors have been demanding for some time.”

The Minima One is more than 80-percent efficient, providing more power to the loudspeaker and creating less heat in the amplifier. Incorporating patented technology, the comparison circuit of the module corrects each individual cycle. On average, every four microseconds, the one-cycle modulator transforms and amplifies the input signal into the ideal natural pulse width modulation. Switching at 250 kHz with the single cycle error-correction ensures low distortion and high reliability.

In addition, the power factor-corrected AC power input automatically and continually adapts to any voltage between 88 and 275 volts.

The Minima One amplifier module option will be available for about $750 per speaker system, depending on the speaker model.

Specs for the Minima One include a rated power of 1,000W @ 4-ohm load or 500W @ 8-ohm load; frequency response of 20-20k Hz, +-0.5 dB; THD + Noise is 0.2% worst case, 30kHz measurement BW; a damping ratio of 450 to 100 Hz (8-ohm load) and a dynamic range of 100 dB.
