Architect Model 1600 SE

16 CHANNEL HIGH-CURRENT AMPLIFIER WITH EQ

It’s really as simple as this! No room, whether commercial or residential, is too large for our Architect series of distributed audio amplifiers. the Architect 1600 SE 16-channel High-Current power amplifier is built for driving more than 2 speakers per zone. Low impedance speaker loads are no problem for this multi-channel amplifier.  The proprietary High-Current design enables the Architect 1600 SE to provide over 150 watts per channel into a 4 ohm load and 300 watts per channel when bridged.  AudioControl’s Exclusive LightDrive Anti-clipping Circuit allows you to use all of the Model 1600 SE power without the worry of speaker damage.

AudioControl’s revolutionary Class H topology provides the cool-running, energy efficient performance required of a multi-channel amplifier.  AudioControl’s legendary speaker equalization creates maximum acoustical performance delivering 5-bands of equalization adjustment optimizing the performance of all speakers connected to it’s 16 channels.

The Architect Model 1600 SE multi-channel amplifier is manufactured in the USA and carries AudioControl’s Bulletproof 5 Year Warranty, but is designed to last a lifetime.
