MPA 152 Plus

The Extron MPA 152 integrated mini power amplifier provides stereo amplification for speaker systems in classrooms and other applications requiring compact, economical audio solutions. It is an ideal step-up from a basic classroom system utilizing built-in video projector speakers. The MPA 152 is an ENERGY STAR® qualified amplifier with an Extron exclusive, highly efficient, advanced Class D amplifier design. It also features patented CDRS™ - Class D Ripple Suppression technology that provides a smooth, clean audio waveform and an improvement in signal fidelity over conventional Class D amplifiers. The Extron exclusive, high efficiency design generates very little heat and allows the amplifier to be fanless and operate in environments with little or no ventilation.

Energy Efficient Amplifier with Auto Power-Down

The MPA 152 ENERGY STAR qualified amplifier is an energy efficient product that conserves energy and reduces costs. With an auto power-down feature that automatically places the amplifier into standby after 25 minutes of inactivity, it consumes 3 watts when idle and less than 1 watt in standby mode.

The MPA 152 is housed in a compact 1U, quarter rack width enclosure. This amplifier is UL 2043 plenum rated, allowing for a concealed installation above a drop ceiling to prevent theft while providing convenient placement of AV equipment.

The MPA 152 delivers 15 watts rms per channel into 4 ohms and 8 watts rms into 8 ohms. It is optimized for driving four 8 ohm ceiling speakers, two in parallel per channel.

The MPA 152 accepts balanced and unbalanced stereo input signals, and provides stereo or dual mono outputs. The front panel includes controls for bass, treble, and input level, and a switch for stereo or dual mono operation. An advanced, automatic clip limiter protects speakers from clipping distortion. For applications requiring volume adjustment and muting control from a location other than the amplifier, remote control capability is available using the optional Extron VCM 100 or VCM 200 analog volume and mute controller or VC 50 analog volume controller.
