Audison Prima Forza AP F8.9 bit - 8 Channel Amplifier & 9 Channel DSP 10
The new AP F8.9 bit is the ideal for the most demanding integration projects, where high power is required along with the flexibility of the nine-channel DSP. The word “Forza”, meaning “Power” in Italian, well describes the 8 x 85 W RMS and 4 x 260 in bridge mode (RMS @ 4Ω), with an optimal power to size ratio. The integrated processor is equipped with a dedicated software and 7 pre-configured presets for a Plug & Sound experience. Thanks to the built-in Audison USS technology (Universal Speakers Simulator), AP F8.9 bit can also be correctly connected to head-units with “speaker load detection” function that monitors the presence of a low-impedance load to enable the audio outputs.
