Product Description

The NXE1.54 Network Power Amplifier from Ashly Audio is the networkable version of the nX amplifier. It comes with Ethernet control, serial data control, aux preamp outputs, instant standby mode, preset recall, fault condition logic outputs, and optional network audio and digital audio capability. All these are controlled using Ashly Audio’s Protea software suite. This amplifier is designed to meet the most demanding live sound and fixed installation sound systems in stadiums, arenas, performance venues, worship spaces, and convention centers.
2-channel high-output, lightweight amplifier with programmable output on each channel
Hi-Z or Lo-Z, selected via rear panel DIP switches
Power saving, Energy Management System (Ashly EMS) automatic <1W sleep mode is defeatable
<1W sleep mode can be defeated for applications that are subject to third-party performance standards that prohibit a sleep mode, including those used for Mass Notification and Emergency Communication Systems and those subject to ANSI/UL 2572.
Front panel power switch and level controls can be disabled for security
Front panel LEDs for temperature, current, signal, clip, mute, bridge mode, protect, sleep, and disable (of front panel controls)
Neutrik Combo XLR: 1/4″ TRS jack plus Euroblock input connectors
Neutrik speakON twist locking loudspeaker connectors for security, safety, and reliability
Rear panel DIP switches per channel for selection of high pass filter, limiter, input gain, and High-Z or Low-Z speaker output configuration
Ethernet port for use with control and monitoring of amplifier functions, with front panel COM activity LED
Serial data port for use with Ashly remote control devices, or RS-232 converter (sold separately) for third party controllers (INA-1)
Uses Protea software to remotely disable all front panel controls, including the on/off switch, for a tamper-proof installation
Real-time clock with event scheduler
Instant standby mode, 30% reduction in power consumption with on/off triggered by contact closure, software control, or event scheduler
Programmable power-on delay
Preset recall via contact closure, software control, remote control, or event scheduler
Auxiliary preamplifier outputs and fault condition logic outputs
Cobranet or Dante network audio (sold separately) and AES3 digital audio input with pass-through
Ducking at mixer, peak hold indicator, in/out per filter, key engage, lock per filter, and global lock
