Featuring BEHRINGER’s Dual-Drive™ technology, the MA4008 mixer-amplifier provides two independent power amplifier channels within each enclosure. One channel is dedicated to low impedance loads, while the other simultaneously drives 70/100 V loads at equal power. Applications that can benefit from this technology include those where high performance low impedance speakers are used for one area while distributed speakers can serve another, without the need for additional power amplifiers.
The MA4000 Series combines a fresh and modern aesthetic design with innovative technologies which will set new standards in distributed system designs. With a focus on sustainability, the MA4000 product family employs high efficiency electronics, resulting in significantly lower power consumption and operating costs. Aimed at enabling LEED certified applications they also create a vastly smaller carbon footprint than conventional products built around legacy technologies.
The MA4008 mixer-amplifier is designed for integration into distributed speech and music systems in conference centers, multi-function meeting rooms, boardrooms, houses of worship, universities, and other such facilities, and integrates extensive signal routing, priority muting, dedicated paging input and both record and Zone 2 outputs, allowing system integrators to deliver unprecedented value and performance.
Diverse Connectivity and Signal Adjustment
The MA4008 features eight Mic/Line inputs on Euroblock connectors with switchable Mic/Line and Phantom power, individual trim control, and post-trim input level LED, four balanced microphone/line XLR/TRS combination connectors with switchable Mic/Line and Phantom power also on inputs 1-4, and four dual RCA summed connectors on inputs 5-8.
Flexible Signal Routing
Inputs 1-8 can be individually assigned to Zone 2/MOH, while Aux inputs 5-8 can be individually assigned to main mix.
Two transformerless amplifiers can simultaneously drive 70/100 V and 4 ohm loads.
Fully adjustable dedicated paging input on a 4-pin Euroblock connector accepts a telephone or paging microphone and features priority muting across all inputs.
Multiple Output Options
The Main mix output is on a securable 4-pin Euroblock connector with selectable 70V/100V switch, pre-master main mix output and a Zone 2/MOH assignable output with independent gain control on dual RCA connectors, with a Pre-Out/Amp-In processing loop for each channel on dual RCA connectors.
Unsurpassed Energy Efficiency
State-of-the-art energy-saving technology with up to 85% power efficiency drastically reduces energy cost. Ultra-light, ultra-low noise and ultra-efficient switch-mode power supplies translate to noise-free audio, superior transient response and low power consumption.
Independent DC and thermal overload protection automatically protects amplifiers and speakers without shutting down audio, and automatic electronic limiters for each amplifier prevent clipping and distortion.
Diverse User Control and Monitoring
The front panel includes input level controls, Lo and Hi frequency main-mix equalization controls, auto-dimming control illumination, VU meter, positive pressure power switch, and a dual-function indicator ring surrounding the master volume control.
Wired remote volume, mute, and power control is possible via connection on a 5-pin Euroblock connector.
