Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) debuted the UXA4416 amplifiers and a companion update to its Resolution software. EAW says UXA4416 represents a new generation of EAW four-channel DSP amplifiers, “offering high-power class D amplification, innovative processing and analog/digital audio management.” EAW says these new amps ensure stability and continuity for its KF passive line source systems deployed at stadiums, arenas, houses of worship, amphitheaters, outdoor festivals and more.

Now operating at 96Khz, the amps claim to improve system interoperability and offer reduced latency compared to previous UX and UXA products In addition, 4 x 4000W Class D amplification and 40-bit floating point DSP ensure powerful, high headroom audio capabilities for systems of any scale.

UXA4416 amplifier presets unify the performance of all supported EAW professional speakers and arrayed systems with four processed channels of audio amplification, complete with a dedicated Greybox preset library. A front panel addressable 4.3-inch display offers an easy touch screen or tactile encoder access to the EAW library and editing. EAW factory presets utilize EAW’s Beamwidth Matched Crossover, Focusing and DynO technologies. EAW says the result is a “highly refined system impulse response and enhanced power delivery to a chosen speaker system.” Resolution software provides a path to remote management and amplifier grouping of an entire EAW speaker ecosystem.

The company says its UXA4416 amplifiers are engineered to last for years while providing high-quality performance for a wide variety of uses. The UXA4416 offers analog and digital audio inputs, with configurable General-Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) and Dante connections available for digital network input options.

The Resolution 2.11 update is a companion release that provides support for UXA4416. It also contains improvements to the software’s GUI and Array Assistant, a more efficient RSX/NTX firmware upgrade procedure and updated KF210 Voicing. An updated version of AC6 Firmware is also available.
