2-Channel Power Amplifier for High-Performance Touring
▶▶ Subwoofers & LF drivers
▶▶ Medium to large-scale touring
▶▶ High-power stage monitoring
▶▶ Stadiums & open-air events
▶▶ Arenas & concert halls
▶▶ Live clubs
For medium to large sound systems,
the K10 is the most versatile amplifier
within the K Series. Equally useful for
most subwoofers as well as high-power
fullrange systems, it is ideal as the
one amplifier model powering entire
systems, resulting in uniform, identical,
and ultra-compact amp racks serving any
configuration and purpose.
Due to remarkably high efficiency
exceeding 85%, the vast power
density paired with unique Powersoft
technologies warrants top performance
despite running off a single mains phase,
while occupying only a single 19” rack
unit and weighing a mere 12 kg/26.5
lb. Like all K Series models, the K10 is
designed for, and absolutely stable with,
2 Ω loads, further reducing the number
of amps required to power a specific
Better still, the K10 can be equipped,
at the factory or anytime later, with an
optional state-of-the-art DSP board
for extensive sound management
functionality. IIR/FIR filters, safety
features like TruePower™ limiting
and LiveImpedance™, as well as the
convenient Active DampingControl™
are intuitively manageable with the free
PC software Armonía Pro Audio Suite™
via the standard RS485 communication
port. 1)

Unequaled Class D design with fixed switching frequency
Universal switch mode power supply with PFC (Power Factor Correction)
▶▶ Space and weight saving: only one rack space (1 RU) and 12 kg/26.5 lb
▶▶ Green Audio Power ® : more amplifier output power from the AC mains
power distribution due to >85% efficiency
✓✓ Outstanding performance and operational safety:
▶▶ Excellent sonic quality by design, including amp clip limiters and patented
ripple cancellation network
▶▶ Numerous amp/system/venue parameters can be configured, locked, and
monitored; i.e. AC mains voltage/current draw to protect from breaker tripping
✓✓ Communication:
▶▶ Fully digitally controlled amplifier providing feedback of status information
▶▶ RS485 serial communication port standard on board, for amplifier control
and monitoring via Armonía Pro Audio Suite™ software 1)
▶▶ Proven reliability, yet downloadable log file of all functional fault events with
time-related trace
✓✓ Practically versatile:
▶▶ Mono-bridgeable amplifier channels; switch for linking analog signal inputs
▶▶ AC inrush current limiting; channel output voltage limiting
▶▶ Digital gain attenuator for gain/sensitivity selection
✓✓ Front panel interactive LCD display for local access and configuration
✓✓ Front panel SmartCard reader/writer for firmware updates and preset storage
✓✓ Front-to-rear airflow cooling with variable-speed fan, temperature controlled
✓✓ Full protection circuitry: over/under AC voltage; troublesome signals (clipping,
VHF, long-term RMS); DC; thermal; short circuit; mute at power on/off
✓✓ Full four years warranty
✓✓ Options & accessories:
▶▶ SmartCard, for firmware updates or preset storage
▶▶ Armonía Pro Audio Suite, free at www.armoniasuite.com
▶▶ Power Control Hub, RS485 distribution and remote Power-on unit for up
to eight K Series amplifiers, 19”/1 RU
▶▶ KDSP Board, for DSP integration:
-- Optional top-grade DSP with high dynamic range and extensive feature set
-- Separate input/output EQ’s with numerous filters of various types up to
48 dB/oct (IIR), linear phase (FIR), and hybrid (FIR+IIR)
-- Sophisticated limiter system comprising peak, RMS voltage, RMS current,
and TruePower™ limiting
-- Speaker wire compensation with Active DampingControl™
-- LiveImpedance™ load monitoring with regular musical signal
-- AES3 digital audio signal input via XLR
▶▶ KAESOP Board (Ethernet/AES3 interface)
1) Serial communication is relatively slow; hence, max 4 amps can be monitored simultaneously, and information
is reduced, e.g. no signal level metering.
