The Kustom KPM4100 Powered Mixer houses its high-technology electronics in a rugged steel chassis and is protected by a vinyl-covered wooden cabinet. Many of the features you would expect to find in more expensive mixers are incorporated in the Kustom KPM4100: balanced microphone inputs with low-noise preamplifiers, carbon film potentiometers, tape inputs and outputs, high-quality digital effects, and a 100W power amplifier.
The typical uses for powered mixers can be strenuous. With setup, tear down, packing and unpacking, patching and un-patching, it can take its toll on a mixer. Since 1966, Kustom has been building some of the most rugged amplifiers in the industry and the KPM4100 mixer has been designed to carry on that tradition with the most durable connectors and reliable components, then housing them in a rugged cabinet.
Many manufacturers design products for the perfect world rather than for the real world. In reality, the real world has shorted speaker cables, defective speakers, misconnections, and improper impedances. The Kustom KPM4100 is designed to be tolerant of that imperfect world. With this product, Kustom delivers an amplifier that will ramp up to power within 4 seconds and check itself over to make sure there are no problems before it allows power to be delivered to the outputs. Also, it will check to see if there are thermal (heated) or short circuits. If it detects a thermal situation, the mixer will shut itself off until the heat dissipates. If it detects a short circuit, it will continue to pass a signal but it will cause the short circuit protection to engage so that the unit will shut down until the problem is corrected.
