New York, NY (April 19, 2024)—This week, the folks at EAW unveiled the latest addition to their UXA Series of power amplifiers, the UXA4416.

Designed to integrate with the company’s KF and SB Series products, the UXA4416 is a four-channel amp providing 4 x 4000 watts of Class-D amplification, all channels driven into 2.7Ω loads. The UXA4416 improves system interoperability and offers reduced latency compared to previous UX and UXA products. Housed in a 2RU chassis, the UXA4416 employs a 96 kHz/40-bit floating-point processing engine, supports the FIR filters required for optimum performance from EAW KF, SB, and MW Series loudspeakers, and includes the EAW Greybox library of speaker presets.

Audio input connections include balanced analog XLR, AES digital, and primary and secondary Dante network connection (via etherCON). Output is via locking NL4. A network connection to EAW Resolution 2 software facilitates quick configuration, control and monitoring of large systems; the UXA4416 can also be configured via the 4.3-inch touchscreen on the front panel in situations where a network connection is unavailable. The Resolution 2.11 update is a companion release that provides support for the UXA4416. It also contains improvements to the software’s GUI and Array Assistant, a more efficient RSX/NTX firmware upgrade procedure, and updated KF210 Voicing.
