Christie CDA3 Professional power amplifier

Christie CDA3
Professional power amplifier
3000W in a sleek, efficient
and powerful Class D design
Ideal for cinema audio applications, the Christie® CDA3 professional power
amplifier utilizes an advanced high-speed Class D architecture and high current
switch mode power supply. It offers high-power output and efficiency with very
low heat output and fast transient response and stability, even with low impedance
loads. Featuring two fully independent channels, with operation in parallel,
stereo and bridged modes, the Christie CDA3 handles a range of demanding
applications with ease.
