DI-Series amplifiers Since Fohhn was founded, we have always had one goal in mind: Make the world sound better! It was the same back in 2002, when, as one of a handful of digital audio technology pioneers, we were exploring new avenues. Throughout the years, we have gathered experience and gained a deeper understanding of our customers’ needs. This is reflected in our reliability and our unique flexibility in both fixed installations and mobile applications. As Fohhn focuses on innovation, in-house expertise continues to evolve: All R & D departments work hand in hand building the future. Our new DI-Series offers a glimpse into that future, presenting state-of-the-art technology paired with almost infinite connectivity. Over the years, our amplifier technology has stood the test of time, employed within our active speaker 8 systems in the form of 8-, 16- or 32-channel DSPcontrolled amplifier modules. Now, equipped with in-house developed, microprocessor-controlled power supplies and the latest generation of DSPs and CLASS D amplifiers, DI-Series systems are emerging as true “Fohhn-only” products. Of particular note are the amplifiers’ innovative Fohhn power electronics. Within each power supply, a microprocessor facilitates the monitoring of current, temperature, humidity etc., ensuring an optimum operation in any situation and environment. 2 x 2000 W 4 x 1000 W up to 10 seconds peak power The power supply is built to provide outstanding power density, reliability and the maintenance of long-lasting peak power. DI-Series amplifiers come with a variety of digital signal inputs, including AES/EBU, Dante™ or Optocore (both optional), or analogue inputs. Their new powerful DSP structure allows for extensive inputand output processing. The amplifiers are networkcompatible and can be remotely controlled and monitored. 9 High-performance amplification built to order: Get the amp that meets your requirements.

Make yourself heard INTEGRATO-SERIES From the very beginning, our ultra-compact Linea LX-10/11 speaker system had met with a positive response from customers. So it came as no surprise when audio planners expressed their wish for a system that could offer the same level of sound quality, yet be fully integrated – almost invisibly. An in-wall speaker system, so to say. That’s when we decided to develop a new pro audio ceiling speaker based on the popular LX-10/11 system. The result: the IG-100 and the IG-120 – the first two models of the Fohhn Integrato-Series. IG-120 (frameless) IG-100 (framed) Excellent Manufacturing Quality MADE IN GERMANY RAL Features: • 2-way coaxial design, 4˝/0.75˝, x-over with HF-driver protection • Mounting depth of only 100 mm, metal enclosure • Outstanding sound quality for speech and music • Exceptionally even sound dispersion, 140° conical • Flat metal front grille, detachable, powder-coated 2-way system, coaxial design based on the Linea LX-10/11 Attention to details for perfect integration BETTER STI values for everyone Selector switch & integrated transformer 100 V - 50 % - 15 W only 100 mm mounting depth 100 V - 25 % - 7.5 W OFF flat metal enclosure, magnetically mounted front grille CLARITY Classic Colours 100 V - 100 % - 30 W 16 Linea LC By introducing Linea LC, we now present speaker systems – with low impedance technology – that offer the same levels of clarity as our EN 54-24 certified Linea LEN products.
