The CP Series are high-performance amplifiers with unmatched dynamic range capability, ensuring the most reliable operation favored by sound contractors in all sound reinforcement applications.

The audio performance of the CP 1200 power amp is simply extraordinary. Optimized power supply units employing low-leakage toroidal transformers provide extensive headroom far above the stated nominal output. This allows a reduction in the overall weight and power dissipation of the amplifier without sacrificing performance or reliability.

With up to 2 x 600 watts into 2 ohms and 2 x 400 watts into 4 ohms, the CP 1200 is dedicated for small full-range cabinets and individual hi-frequency components in multiway systems. The CP 1200 uses a conventional transformer power supply.

Designed in Class-AB technology, the CP 1200 has been designed to fulfill even the most demanding requirements of touring applications. The CP 1200 amp is protected against thermal and electrical overload, short circuit and the occurrence of HF/DC at the outputs. Back-EMF-Protection eliminates the risk of the output transistors being damaged by electrical energy back-feed. The power outputs are switched via relay with a time delay during soft-start. An inrush current limiter prevents mains fuses from blowing.

The recessed mounted dB-scaled level controls ensure reliable protection against mechanical damage. These particularly precise, secure to operate detent-potentiometers are located on the front panel. CP-Series power amps provide the opportunity for retrofitting an internal analogue signal processor board with x-over and filter functions.

The easily readable LED display provides a quick overview of the power amp’s current operational status. The power outputs CHANNEL A, CHANNEL B and BRIDGED OUT are carried out as extremely durable Speakon-type connectors. Also located on the rear panel is a Ground-lift switch, which helps eliminating ground-noise loops by separating the power amp’s enclosure from the circuit ground. In normal operation, the CP 1200 power amp is capable of driving loads as low as 2 ohms. In Mono-Bridged mode the allowable minimum load is 4 ohms.
