Phoenix Gold (Aamp of America) will introduce at the CES show next month, a new top-of-the line Elite series of amplifiers and speakers.
Included are Elite.1, Elite.2 and Elite.4 amplifiers that are among the most powerful from the brand to date. They use technology found in home audiophile products such as Burr Brown op-amps. They have ultra high mass heat sinks and each is shipped with a guarantee that it will out-perform its power rating by 5 to 20 percent.
Elite 1 is a Class D mono amp rated at 3,200 watts into 1 ohm or 2,400 watts into 2 ohms. The two-channel Elite 2 is an AB amp rated at 450 watts x 2 into 1 ohm (or 375 x 2 into 2 ohms or 250 x 4 into 4 ohms). The four-channel Elite 4 model ratings include 300 watts x 4 into 1 ohm.
The amps are joined by a 12-inch subwoofer with a 3-inch long throw voice coil. The Elite.12d is a dual 4 ohm model that handles up to 1,600 watts peak.
Finally, the series includes a 6.5-inch component set with 25mm silk dome tweeters and 24dB Glen Phillips external crossovers. Power handling for the Elite.65cs is 150 watts RMS.
The line will ship in March at prices to be announced.
Also from Phoenix Gold is a Ti215d4 subwoofer that will be shown at CES. It handles 800 watts RMS with a peak to peak excursion of 40mm. It uses dual voice coils and has dual 4ohm impedance. Pricing and shipping will be announced.
