The driving force behind any spectacular audio setup, installed amplifiers are one of the most important links in your chain of components. Getting sound to your big, beefy PA speakers is no easy task and while an installed amp may be small in comparison to the other audio equipment and gear in your rack, it's definitely mighty. If you want more bite, more power and more output you're in the right spot - any one of these professional-level installed amplifies offer the perfect way to kick your sound into high gear.
If you're not sure where to start your search for the amp that's going best suit your installed sound needs, it never hurts to browse the top-selling models. One thing to keep in mind though, is that the amps in this section are meant to be used in permanent sound setups - places like nightclubs, recording studios or your regular rehearsal space. It's also important to make sure that the amp you choose provides an acceptable measure of ohms to your speakers at the impedance that is given on the amp's output. Because of this, you should go with an amplifier with plenty of impedance headroom.
Now that we've covered the basics of installed amps, it's time to check out some examples. Designed for instruments that require additional headroom and more power in the deep bass range, the Bose Packlite Power Amp Model A1 is a stellar choice for electric bassists. This lightweight amp is easy to use and can power up to two additional Bose B1 bass modules or a single B2 bass module. Another installed amp worth a closer look is the Crown CDi2000. Built specifically for installed sound applications, this amp is rugged yet lightweight (it weighs less than 19 pounds), offers incredible value in its class and features an intuitive front-panel LCD screen for quick and easy configuration.
No one knows the ins and outs of your unique sound setup better than you do. The good news is that this section is stocked with an impressive variety of installed amps. While each installed amp here offers something different, they all have one thing in common: the ability to blow you away with their amazing sound capabilities.
