In 2010, Powersoft of Scandicci, Italy, entered into a strategic partnership with EAW (Eastern Acoustic Works) in Whitinsville, Mass., which would allow both companies to integrate proprietary EAW DSP algorithms into Powersoft’s K Series power amplifier line when equipped with DSP modules. This month, Powersoft announces that the latest software upgrades for its K Series DSP amplifiers now support EAW Focusing as a result of this collaboration between EAW and Powersoft engineers.

“EAW users will benefit greatly from Greyboxes residing within the K Series DSP,” explains Thomas Mittelmann, Powersoft business development manager. “Powersoft’s greatest fortes—performance and efficiency integrated with EAW Focusing—will create systems that provide an unprecedented level of sound reinforcement excellence.”

End users powering EAW systems with K Series DSP amplifiers will experience all of the advantages of Powersoft technology, including universal switch mode power supplies with Power Factor Correction (PFC) and patented Class-D technology. K Series amplifiers are said to offer greater than 90-percent efficiency, resulting in more overall power from less rack space and a reduction in amplifiers required per system.

Powersoft’s state-of-the-art DSP circuitry—Active DampingControl, LiveImpedance Measurement, TruePower Limiter and other proprietary features—paired with EAW Focusing combine to create a fully integrated system package.

The K Series comprises six models, ranging from 2x2,400 watts per channel @ 4 ohms to 2x9,000 watts per channel @ 2 ohms, all within a single-rackspace unit. All K Series amplifiers are lightweight and designed for efficiency.

End users can obtain Greybox files from EAW and load them into the Powersoft K Series DSP platform using Powersoft’s Armonía Pro Audio Suite software to facilitate system management. The latest Armonía Pro Audio Suite software version, as well as a Greybox-specific plug-in and the required amplifier and DSP firmware, are available as free downloads from the Armonía support forum within Powersoft’s website.
