The production run just started, so please allow for some build time before shipping.
MINOTAUR is the first of our new generation of Mono block/single channel amplifiers. These are capable of full range operation for those who demand high power for midrange and lower midrange drivers in multiway systems. Its primary goal is for sub woofer operation and the controls have been optimized for this duty.
Rated power is 500 watts into 4 ohm or 1Kilowatt into 2 ohm.
Two Minotaurs bridged deliver 1Kilowatt into 8 ohm or 2 Kilowatt into 4 ohm.
One, two or four input configuration.
Two line outputs, one in phase for parallel operation and one out of phase for bridged operation.
Industry first 48 dB per octave Linkwitz Riley High Pass crossover 10Hz-100Hz
Low Pass 24 dB per octave Linkwitz-Riley crossover 45Hz-230Hz
Phase control variable 0 to 180 degrees.
Five band equalizer with constant Q response set at ISO-frequencies 25 Hz, 31 Hz, 40 Hz, 50 Hz and 63 Hz.
Preamplifier bypass for full range operation.
Level control accommodates input levels up to 8.6v RMS.
Pre-amplifiers utilize a fully isolated power supply for zero ground loops.
Pre-amplifiers drive the main amplifiers in a fully balanced mode.
Class D amplifier utilizes high-speed high current low gate charge MOSFETs.
Fully regulated power supply delivers power independent of battery voltage.
There are a total of seven regulated power supplies.
The power supply utilizes eight 110 amp MOSFETs in a source follower configuration for maximum bandwidth.
Low ESR 105°C capacitors are used in the power supply.
Very high efficiency owing to the smart power supply.
Tiffany RCA's with Teflon inserts are used for ultimate quality and reliability.
