The FM250-4 (4Ω/8Ω) and FM250-70 (70.7V) power modules can be loaded into any of the six F6-MF amplifier card slots and are designed to deliver up to 250 Watts per channel. The Ultra Fast Recovery Switch Mode power supply is routed to each output module through quad-ganged connector contacts to minimize the impedance path allowing for maximum current delivery. Each amplifier module includes its own power supplied, high-current, low ESR (Equivalent, Series Resistance) capacitors which provide immediate local, on demand current. This allows each channel to produce clean, instantaneous, high-impact audio power. The direct coupled power supply is designed to route any and all available energy to the channels that require it. This innovative feature known as Power Rail Direct Coupling™, or PRDC, technology enables channels that demand more energy to benefit from the pooled resources so they can deliver more power efficiently. The F6-MF Chassis can be purchased with up to six FM250-4 of FM250-70 modules in any combination. Additional modules can also be ordered as needed to satisfy future system or purchasing requirements. The F6-MF and FM250 Power Modules are loaded with useful features including Front and Rear channel status indicators, selectable gain, signal limiters, 100Hz Hi-Pass filter, bridge mode operation, and tamper-resistant level controls. The FM250 Series Power Modules are designed to be 90% efficient, allowing the amplifier to run cooler and consume less energy than conventional commercial amplifiers. To ensure all channels run cool, Atlas Sound has designed the F6-MF with a sophisticated forced air cooled tunnel system. The input design of the F6-MF is based on an open architecture concept, permitting application and installation flexibility. Six balanced inputs via Phoenix termination feed a variety of optional accessory interface cards, increasing the functionality and performance of the F6-MF. The F6-MF offers an Energy Save Mode called "Standby". The amplifier can be turned on remotely via a Contact Closure (CC) or a DC Voltage of 5V - 24V. An LED located on both the Front & Rear panels of the F6-MF indicates the operation mode of the amplifier. While in Standby, the F6-MF draws an incredibly low amount of energy, 5 Watts, making the amplifier meet the Energy Star rating for commercial products. In Activation mode, the F6-MF is designed for maximum power efficiency utilizing the most advanced topology available. The FM Series Power Modules are 90% efficient, combining with the Power Savings Mode, making the F6-MF more power efficient with a higher power handling than other commercial amplifiers available. Additional input cards, i.e. FM-AMIX and FM-IPDSP, are also available to increase the flexibility of the F6-MF system. The cost effective FM-AMIX Analog Input Mixer Card is feature loaded with stereo summed and Mic/Line inputs with global assignment and remote mute priority capabilities. The FM-IPDSP Input Card incorporates the latest DSP and IP technologies to allow the user to adjust a wide array of signal parameters, and it serves as an interface for control and system monitoring of all amplifier channels from a remote location.

Owner’s Manual F6-MF Multi-Impedance Modular Amplifier Placement of the F6 Turn off all equipment before making connections. Mount the F6-MF in a standard width 19" rack. It can be mounted above or below anything that does not generate excessive heat. Although the unit’s chassis is shielded against radio frequency and electromagnetic interference, extremely high fields of RFI and EMI should be avoided. Ventilation The unit should be situated so that its location or position does not interfere with its proper ventilation. For example, the F6-MF should not be situated in a sealed cabinet or on a shelf with obstacles on it that may impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings. It is recommended that if the amp is not used in an open air pole mount that it be rack mounted into a commercial rack. Heat The F6-MF should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce excessive heat. Ambient temperatures should not exceed 113°F (45°C) when equipment is in use. Cabling of the F6 The F6-MF can be used with either balanced or unbalanced sources, and the outputs can be used with either balanced or unbalanced loads provided the proper cabling is used. A balanced line is defined as two-conductor shielded cable with the two center conductors carrying the same signal of opposite polarity when referenced to ground. An unbalanced line is generally a single-conductor shielded cable with the center conductor carrying the signal and the shield at ground potential. Balanced Input Use 2 conductor wire shielding for low level signals, 20 to 22 gauge is best. Maintain the proper polarity, + to +, – to –, and shield to ground. Note: The ground center pin of the Phoenix connector is common for both channels. Speaker Outputs Use 2 conductor unshielded wire of the appropriate gauge.
