Velodyne, manufacturer of powered subwoofers, introduced the SC-600D amplifier, an improved version of the SC-600. The SC-600D features a Class D amplifier (the original SC-600 featured a Class A/B design), which the company says improves efficiency, reduces its weight to 17 pounds, and reduces wasted energy by turning AC power into usable output.
"The updated amplifier offers installers a number of improvements over its predecessor, the SC-600 amplifier, including a robust 80-percent conversion efficiency," said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne, in a statement. "The SC-600D is lighter and easier to install and features the exact same rear-panel connections as the SC-600 amp."
Designed to power Velodyne's SC-600 IW in-wall subwoofer and SC-600 IF/IC in-floor/in-ceiling subwoofers, the plug and play SC-600D is a 400W dynamic, 200W RMS power Class D amplifier that provides headroom for clean, powerful bass.
The rack-mounted SC-600D can be incorporated into a system thanks to its 12V trigger, IR repeater jack, and RS-232 control capability. Each SC-600D comes with a full-featured IR remote providing four different listening preference settings.
