More details on the Rane Zone Power Eight
Overview: The Rane Zone Power Eight is an 8-channel commercial amplifier designed for 70V/100V installations. The Zone Power Eight can provide up to 150W per channel, making it an ideal choice for distributing sound to multiple speakers over long cable runs. The 8-channel amplifier can be used with a wide variety of commercial in-ceiling and surface-mount speakers, as well as paging horns.
Inputs: The Rane Zone Power Eight includes eight 3-pin Euroblock input connectors, accepting either balanced or unbalanced signals from outboard media players, tuners, streaming devices, and more. Each input channel includes its own level adjustment dial for setting proper input signal levels.
Outputs: Eight output channels are provided on four 5-pin Euroblock connectors, for running amplified signals out to either 70V or 100V speakers (sold separately). Eight corresponding Operation Mode switches let you select either 70V or 100V for each individual speaker output channel, letting you power both types of speakers to one amplifier. The Zone Power Eight can provide up to 150W per output channel.
Front Panel Indicators:
- Power: Lights when unit is powered on.
- Signal/Clip/Protection LEDs: Each of the 8 channels includes 3
LED indicators for:
- Signal: Lights green to indicate an optimal input signal level.
- Clip: Lights red if a channel's signal level starts to clip or distort. The corresponding channel input level should be lowered to avoid this.
- Protection: This will light red if the Zone Power Eight detects a short circuit or problem with that corresponding channel. Protect mode can also indicate the amp may be over heating.
Cooling: The Rane Zone Power Eight is convection cooled and includes both front- and rear-panel vents for air flow through the amp.
