The Extron NetPA U 8001 SUB is an ENERGY STAR qualified subwoofer amplifier that delivers 800 watts in a plenum rated enclosure that mounts directly to our SF 10C SUB in‑ceiling subwoofer. Dante Domain Manager and AES67 support ensure wide compatibility with enterprise configurations and other network audio devices. With its integrated DSP for essential processing, the NetPA U 8001 SUB amplifier is the perfect companion to our SF 10C SUB subwoofer or any subwoofer. This powerful combination meets the requirements of complex, decentralized systems with a complete space-saving solution.

Dante Audio Networking

Dante provides scalable audio transport, with Dante Domain Manager support, over a local area network using standard Internet protocols. The family of Dante-enabled products from Extron work together as part of a complete networked audio system solution and integrate with other Dante-enabled products to create efficient system designs. With AES67 support, NetPA amplifiers accommodate a range of audio routing needs in a variety of applications.

Setting up a network of Extron Dante-enabled products requires Dante Controller software. Dante Controller is used to easily assign an output from a Dante-enabled device, such as an Extron DMP Plus Series processor, to an input on a NetPA Ultra amplifier.

Integrated DSP

A built in mix matrix allows any analog or Dante input to be routed to any Dante output, analog line output, or the amplifier output. The integrated DSP provides essential processing including gain adjustment, filters, dynamics, ducking, and delay. The Dante outputs, analog line outputs, and amplifier output have independent processing for maximum flexibility.

The DSP built into the NetPA U 8001 SUB includes a 4th order Linkwitz-Riley filter for the creation of crossovers in applications where full range audio is passed through to program speakers.

Control and Monitoring

A network connection through a DMP Plus Series processor over a Dante network and RS-232 provide control of amplifier parameters as well as monitoring of the amplifier's status.

Analog Line Outputs

The post input DSP analog line outputs allow for connection of additional amplifiers, simplifying connection to the source while providing consistent or independent processing. The independent processing of these line outputs allows for unique filters, delay, and level requirements.

Designed by Extron

Every circuit in a NetPA Ultra power amplifier is designed by our team of dedicated power amplifier engineers, ensuring that every Extron amplifier meets our high standards of excellence. By designing everything in-house, Extron engineers can meticulously optimize every detail for maximum performance, reliability, power efficiency, and reduced heat.

High Efficiency

With tested and measured efficiency benchmarks up to 77%, the NetPA Ultra uses less electricity to generate the same amount of power. This has the direct benefit of lower electricity costs and less power infrastructure required.

Cool Operation

A NetPA Ultra amplifier runs up to 28% cooler, with up to 49% less power wasted as heat, and up to 59% less radiated heat compared to competitive amplifiers. Electronics that run cooler, last longer and don’t transfer heat to other gear sharing the same rack. The low radiated heat of the NetPA Ultra amplifiers, enabled by our advanced thermal engineering, saves on cooling costs and allows more channels of amplification to be put into fewer rack spaces.


The NetPA U 8001 SUB meets ENERGY STAR qualification requirements with a selectable auto power-down feature that can be enabled to automatically place the amplifier into standby after 25 minutes of inactivity. When in standby, the NetPA U 8001 SUB draws less than four watts of power. It quickly comes out of standby upon detection of signal in under 100 milliseconds, fast enough that the beginning of audio is not cut off. When coming out of standby, the NetPA U 8001 SUB draws minimal inrush current, creating no sudden demand on power systems. 

Rock-Solid Reliability

Product reliability is a high priority at Extron and we go to great lengths to engineer products with industry-leading low failure rates, driven by rigorous testing of everything we ship. From the elimination of short-lived electrolytic capacitors in the signal path, to PCB designs that exclude the use of failure-prone wire harnesses, to accelerated burn-in testing, the NetPA U 8001 SUB is engineered by Extron for many years of service.
