Blaze Audio Introduces the PowerZone Connect Series of Power Amplifiers

Greensboro, NC – July 2022… Blaze Audio, a manufacturer of professional solutions for commercial audio applications and a subsidiary of Pascal A/S of Copenhagen, Denmark, is pleased to announce the PowerZone Connect (https://blaze-audio.com/en_us/products/amps/powerzone-connect/) Series of power amplifiers. Consisting of four models—the PowerZone Connect 122, PowerZone Connect 252, PowerZone Connect 254, and PowerZone Connect 504—these versatile, smart amplifiers offer ultra-compact, half rack, 1RU form factors, can drive both conventional low impedance (4Ω to 16Ω) loudspeakers and constant voltage (70V/100V) transformer coupled loudspeakers, provide intuitive browser-based configuration, as well as Blaze Audio’s innovative Powershare technology that delivers flexible power output across output channels.

The entire PowerZone Connect series includes a full matrix DSP design offering system configuration and control via Blaze Audio’s PowerZone Control browser-based web app. PowerZone Control is an intuitive application that can be used to configure everything from one’s phone, tablet, or PC by connecting through the amplifier’s built-in Wi-Fi or direct via the amplifier’s network port. Offering tremendous value, this application facilitates control of input sources and output channels, as well as the setup of audio zones, EQ, routing, and more—regardless of whether the integrator is on- or off-site. With PowerZone Connect amplifiers, the most impressive multi-zone sound systems can be created quickly and easily.

PowerZone Connect 122

With four analog inputs and one stereo digital input, the PowerZone Connect 122 has flexible output options:  2 x 60W in Lo-Z mode and 1 x 125W in Hi-Z mode. Automatic power sharing technology enables the total available power to be shared proportionately between the outputs.

PowerZone Connect 252

Featuring four analog inputs and one stereo digital input, the PowerZone Connect 252 offers flexible output options:  2 x 125W in Lo-Z mode and 1 x 250W in Hi-Z mode. The amplifier’s automatic power sharing technology enables the total available power to be shared proportionately between the outputs.

PowerZone Connect 254

With its four analog inputs and one stereo digital input, the PowerZone Connect 254 provides flexible output options: 4 x 60W in Lo-Z mode and 2 x 125W in Hi-Z mode. Automatic power sharing technology enables the amplifier’s total available power to be shared proportionately between the outputs.

PowerZone Connect 504

With its four analog inputs and one stereo digital input, the PowerZone Connect 504 has flexible output options: 4 x 125W in Lo-Z mode and 2 x 250W in Hi-Z mode. The amplifier’s automatic power sharing technology enables the amplifier’s total available power to be shared proportionately between the outputs.

Kevin Wilkin, Blaze Audio’s Executive Sales Director for the Americas, commented on the PowerZone Connect Series amplifiers, “For a wide range of commercial install projects such as bars, cafes, restaurants, retail stores, hotels, education sites, Houses of Worship, and more, the PowerZone Connect Series amplifiers are a terrific choice. In addition to the PowerZone Control app, which simplifies system configuration, these amps offer a GPIO interface that enables the addition of any standard remote control. With Blaze Audio’s pioneering Powershare technology, the amplifier’s total available power is automatically shared across all channels, so the power is available where it’s needed. Equally notable, all four models employ our parent company’s UMAC™ Class-D technology that features a full bandwidth PWM modulator with ultra-low distortion for best-in-class performance. I have every confidence system integrators will find much to like with these amps.”

The Blaze Audio PowerZone Connect amplifiers are available now. For more information or to find an authorized dealer, please call (888) 500-0109 or email [email protected].
