PLM+ SERIES PLM 5K44
Building on the best-selling PLM+ Series, the PLM 5K44 offers up to 4 x 1,250 Watts output power, a multitude of processing power, and a host of additional features designed to provide real world benefits – all at a price point that makes owning them more affordable than ever. Features such as: LAKE Digital Signal Processing; Dante Digital Audio Networking; plus a touring technology first – Rational Power Management (RPM), a proprietary innovation that rationalises power allocation between channels for optimised performance. As with previous generations, the PLM 5K44 provides redundant audio inputs and load monitoring, plus the multi-channel performance that adds flexibility across the user’s entire loudspeaker inventory. The PLM 5K44 makes any production lifecycle easier to specify, smoother to run, and more efficient to control and monitor at the system design stage, during the show – and right through to final load out.
Four Channels – 5,000 Watts
The PLM 5K44 power amplifier packs 5,000 Watts: 4 x 900 Watts @ 2 Ohms; 4 x 1,250 Watts @ 2.67 Ohms; 4 x 1,250 Watts @ 4 Ohms;
4 x 1,250 Watts @ 8 Ohms, 4 x 700 Watts @ 16 Ohms, into a lightweight (25.1 lbs / 11.4 kg), 2U rack-mountable chassis. Plus, the built-in LAKE DSP ensures the ultimate signal integrity across an extremely broad dynamic range (> 112 dB). PLM 5K44’s proven and reliable IDEEA output stage accompanied with an advanced power supply that provides best-in-class Power Factor Correction (PFC) with Current Draw Modeling, reducing running costs and minimising environmental impact.
Legendary LAKE DSP
The onboard, full-featured LAKE processor provides virtually-effortless group control via its Raised Cosine MESA EQ asymmetric filters – so it can match the response of virtually any loudspeaker system. The included LAKE Controller software provides a unified interface for control and comprehensive monitoring of both amplifier status and connected loudspeaker loads. Optimized for a wireless tablet PC, LAKE Controller is easy and intuitive to operate, with the “feel” of real-time analog faders and controls. LAKE processing also offers classical crossovers (selectable up to 48 dB per octave), FIR (finite impulse response), as well as linear-phase crossovers that are capable of slopes exceeding 180 dB per octave for even greater control.
