SDA-8300

8-channel Bridgeable Class D Amplifier

The SDA-8300 is a versatile 8-channel Class D power amplifier designed to deliver maximum power while taking up minimal rack space. Each channel is rated to deliver 300W into 8 ohms and adjacent channel pairs can be bridged to deliver 600W into 8 ohms. This flexible channel configuration makes this an ideal amplifier to power LCR, surround, and height channel loudspeakers as well as in-wall subwoofers in JBL Synthesis immersive audio systems. Powerful built-in DSP allows for custom loudspeaker tuning and full external control allows for complete and easy system integration.
