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.

C2O
C2O
The C2O interface converts the signals coming from the coaxial digital input and from the analog AUX-IN into a TOSLINK optical digital output signal (up to 24 bit/192kHz). The conversion allows the integration of the new Hi-Res portable devices equipped with coaxial digital output (75 ohm) and smartphones with analog output on 3.5 mm mini Jack (also 4 poles) with Audison processors featuring an optical digital input compatible with the resolution of the signal sent to the C20. Thanks to its extreme compactness, the C20 can be installed in a hidden position on the dashboard, drastically reducing the length of the cabling between the portable player and the receiving device.

bit Tune
bit Tune
The Audison bit Tune is a revolutionary system of automatic calibration for Audison bit processors developed with bit Drive technology. Bit Tune also includes a multitude of additional features for electro-acoustic verification and analysis of any car audio system.The Audison team s goal in developing the bit Tune was to speed up the setting of basic parameters for the calibration of the bit processors (time alignment, equalization, levels, etc.), ensuring an excellent level of acoustic performance. This phase also includes the diagnosis of comm on errors (channel inversion/phase, no signal on one channel/cable, etc.) to set the specialist free from his routine work and allow him to focus on the art of fine-tuning. Only personal interpretation and experience can achieve what a machine could never do: create Your Sound!

SPM4
SPM4
Stereo passive mixer (unpowered) featuring 4 input channels and 2 output channels, designed for active OEM multi-way systems where each speaker is powered by one specific amplified channel. SPM4 mixes audio through 4 audio transformers specifically developed to achieve very low distortion and highly linear acoustic response. SPM4 provides the ability to mix the midrange/woofer and tweeter channels coming from the amplifier and supply one single mid-high channel. The Ch1(L/R) channels feature two inputs, one features an inverting input compared to Ch2 (L/R) channels; the mixing process often gives better results when one of the two channels undergoes a 180° dephasing. SPM4 is especially recomm ended to extend the number of inputs of the Audison digital processors or amplifiers with built-in DSP because they feature a De-equalizer (De-Eq). In that case, any possible non-linear acoustic emissions due to the mixing of the pre-existing filtered channels are duly compensated.
