The APA1200DSP combines a whole collection of equipment into one complete package. The full-featured digital engine at the heart of the APA1200DSP includes an 8-band EQ, Limiter, Phase and delay adjustment, and an adjustable crossover.

Powerful and Simple DSP Control

Tuning an audio system can sometimes be a strenuous task where the equipment isn't located where you are listening to it. In addition to the front panel controls, the internal software on the APA1200DSP puts complete control of every setting at your fingertips with a convenient web-based control interface. This truly universal control interface works on any web browser; eliminating the need to install mobile apps and can even be run from any computer. Multiple units can be installed on the same network and user-defined presets can easily be saved for future use and transferred between units for a truly awesome experience.

Auto EQ
Setup is easier than ever as the APA1200DSP can automatically adjust a 5-band parametric EQ to best suit subwoofers being used and the room they are in. It's like hiring a sound engineer, but without the house call. Just connect the included calibration microphone and let the low frequency auto EQ configure the APA1200DSP for optimized subwoofer performance in any room.

Built-in Limiter
With 1200 watts of power it can sometimes be easy to overpower your favorite speakers. The built-in limiter allows for complete control and easy protection of any speaker. Full control of threshold, attack, and release can be independently applied to each channel or linked for stereo control.

8 Bands of Parametric EQ
In addition Auto EQ the APA1200DSP has three additional EQ bands for a grand total of eight bands of fully parametric EQ. All bands include a 0.4 to 14 continuously variable Q, and range from 20Hz to 20kHZ with -12dB to +6dB of adjustment. Each of the five bands controlled by the Auto EQ can also be adjusted to operate as high and low pass filters, bass and treble shelves, or notch filters; providing supreme control of the system EQ.

The APA1200DSP is built for connectivity. The Input section accepts +4dB and -10dB line-level signals on either stereo RCA connections of Balanced XLR as well as digital audio on a Coaxial SPDIF connection. Ensuring compatibility with almost any source, these inputs are mirrored on the XLR and RCA outputs for building an expanded system with multiple zones or subwoofers. The two amplified channels can power 2 ohm, 4 ohm, and 8 ohm speakers in stereo and can be bridged to power 4 ohm speakers at 1150 watts. Additionally, the APA1200DSP features an ethernet port for connecting to a data network, and 12 volt trigger inputs and outputs for integration into automated systems.

Please check that the unit is running the most recent firmware V1.7 by visiting the About Page in the Web GUI. If you are not running V1.7 yet, please visit the downloads tab to access the update instructions for the APA1200DSP. NOTE: You must have a PC running Windows with access to an ethernet port to be able to update the firmware on the APA1200DSP.
