Velodyne has introduced the SC-600D amplifier, an improved version of the SC-600.
The SC-600D features a Class D amplifier.
The SC-600D features a Class D amplifier — the original SC-600 featured a Class A/B design — which improves efficiency, reduces its weight to 17 lbs, and reduces “wasted” energy by turning AC power into usable output, according to the company.
“The updated amplifier offers installers a number of improvements over its predecessor, the SC-600 amplifier, including a robust 80 percent conversion efficiency,” said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. “The SC-600D is lighter and easier to install and features the exact same rear-panel connections as the SC-600 amp.”
Designed to power Velodyne’s SC-600 IW in-wall subwoofer and SC-600 IF/IC in-floor/in-ceiling subwoofers, the “plug and play” SC-600D is a 400-watt dynamic, 200-watt RMS power Class D amplifier that provides superior headroom for clean, powerful bass.
The rack-mounted SC-600D can be incorporated into a system thanks to its 12-volt trigger, IR repeater jack and RS-232 control capability. Each SC-600D comes complete with a full-feature IR remote providing four different listening preference settings.
