New 1200w and 2400w amps including DSP from Dayton

Came across these today on PE's site, the SPA1200DSP and SPA2400DSP.

No pictures on the site, but there's a lot of cool info in the manual!

These look like awesome bits of kits, be interesting to see how they turn out.

Meanwhile, in the DIY Subwoofer forums...

sweet, I was just looking everywhere I could think of to find some discussion on these. I also ran across them this morning, id love to find that these live up to their specs so I could replace my pro amp with nice plates with built in dsp.

Not bad.... if they do produce 2400w rms then that would be a good thing.

Re: New 1200w and 2400w amps including DSP from Dayton

I just ordered mine today! It will arrive tomorrow night. I'm curious about the hpf options. It looks like it's 24, 20, 16(hz) or sealed. Sealed most likely meaning flat but no one I talked to at parts express or Dayton seemed to have any solid answers. I will report back tomorrow night after I get my hands on it. It's going to power my ultimax 18 that's in a vented alignment tuned to 14 hz.

I tried the 2400. When I tried to test it for full power, the magic smoke came out.

You blown the 2400 already?

Simulation is no substitute for thought.

Here are my test notes. This is with Audio Precision, noninductive loads, 20A breaker.

DAYTON SPA2400DSP
3mm faceplate powdercoated. No LEDs at all.
no UL. CE. FCC ID 2AF3C-SPA
relays click on power up.
Gain 50.7db on normal, 44.7db on high level.
Signal Sense sensitivity Hi Level 60Hz 40mV channel 1, 22mV channel 2. This is going to be a problem. Switched to Normal level it never turns on!
idle power 38W. Standby power 24W. This is not a Energy Star device!
FANS RUNNING AT LOW SPEED THO BARELY WARM.
POWER PER CHANNEL
640W/8 CLIP LIMITER
1250W/4 CLIP LIMITED NO GACKING

DURING POWER TEST POPPED MY BREAKER. POWER BACK UP AND CHANNEL B NOT WORKING. CH A HAS REPETITIVE BURST NOISE LIKE B IS BURPING. CYCLE POWER AND NEITHER CHANNEL WORKS. AFTER ANOTHER POWER CYCLE B COMES ON EVENTUALLY, NOT A. AFTER A LOOONG POWER CYCLE, THEY BOTH COME BACK ON.

TRYING TO SEE EFFICIENCY. FEW SECONDS FULL POWER AND POW!! BOTH CHANNELS DIED. END OF TEST. RETURN TO PE.

Not much concern with that 1!

I have the 1200-dsp and it has allot of power. It can push my ultimax 18 past where I feel comfortable that the sub can handle it. 12.5 cu tuned to 15. Mind you I have no kind of measurements to back this up but it seemed to me that it produces the 1200 Watts. I upgraded from a Yung 300 watt boosted to this.
