AP F8.9 bit DSP Amplifier | 1040 W | 9 CH DSP + 8 x 130 W @ 2 ohm | D-class Fully Bridgeable

The new AP F8.9 bit is ideal for the most demanding integration projects, where high power is required along with the flexibility of the nine-channel DSP. The word Forza, meaning Power in Italian, well describes the 8 x 85 W RMS and 4 x 260 in bridge mode (RMS @ 4 ohms), with optimal power-to-size ratio. The integrated processor is equipped with dedicated software and 7 pre-configured presets for a Plug & Sound experience. Thanks to the built-in Audison USS technology (Universal Speakers Simulator), AP F8.9 bit can also be correctly connected to head units with a speaker load detection function that monitors the presence of a low-impedance load to enable the audio outputs.
