Ashly Audio’s KLR Series of amplifiers offer high efficiency and high power at a light weight at a surprisingly low price. The two-channels KLR Series amps — ranging from 1,000 to 2,000 watts per channel at two ohms — are ideal for both professional audio and fixed-performance installations.
The KLR-2000, KLR-3200 and KLR-4000 operate in two, four or eight ohm loads in bridged, stereo or parallel mono modes. The output topography of the KLR-2000 and KLR-3200 are Class-AB, whereas the KLR-4000 (pictured) is a two-step, Class-H design.
The front panel includes individual input attenuators, forced air inflow vents with removable dust filters, a power switch, and LEDs for power, signal, clip and protection. The rear panel includes a threeposition gain switch (1V, 32 dB or 26 dB sensitivity), a three-position mode switch (bridged, stereo or parallel mono), a three-position highpass filter switch (30 Hz, 50 Hz or off), a limiter switch (on/off) and air outflow vents. Inputs include balanced three-pin Euroblock and a combination XLR/ 1/4-inch tip-ring-sleeve. Output connections are Neutrik Speakon. The power cord is permanently attached.
