DSP 8 Channel Amplifier

The ARC Audio PS8-50 is an incredibly compact 8-channel amplifier that boasts the full suite of Pro-Series signal process in a compact chassis that will fit under the seat in or a storage compartment in almost any vehicle.

Each channel of the ARC Audio PS8-50 will deliver up to 100 Watts of power and pairs of channels can be bridged to deliver an impressive 200 watts into a 4-Ohm Load. Finally, as the heart of an elaborate 4-way system, the ARC Audio PS8-50 includes a pair of stereo outputs that can drive an external amp while channels 5 and 6 of the processor are used in a bridged configuration to power a mid-bass driver or similar application that required large amounts of power.

Integration capabilities along with the most extensive and finite tuning features available for today's most discriminating audiophiles. Simply, prepare for the PS8-50 to redefine the industry standards for all-in-one compact amplifier/DSP technology giving you the tools to reach your heart through music in new ways you have never experienced.

Understanding that every vehicle is different and today's vehicles sometimes offer less and less space for aftermarket audio systems. With space at a premium and vehicle owners becoming more critical on the amount they can give up for audio components the ability to design a super compact amplifier with today's most advanced OEM integration tools is more important than ever.

Designed and engineered by Robert Zeff, the all-new PRO-Series DSP technology is a flexible and yet powerful platform that allows itself to be adapted to a wide variety of applications and products with zero compromise to sound quality. Capable of processing audio streams up to 192kHz at 32-bit, The ARC Audio Pro-Series DSP platform raises the bar on high-end audiophile and OEM integration system tuning with three new products. The new PS8-50 stand-alone exhibits the latest in OEM integration capabilities along with the most extensive and finite tuning features available for today's most discriminating audiophiles.

Just as with the PS8 the power of tuning has been left in the hands of the installer and user without the intervention of engineered auto-processing leaving you with only 80% of your systems capability. Featuring 248-bands of Third Octave -or- Parametric equalization with adjustments up to +20dB/-24dB per band in 1/10thdB increments by either individual band/global/mix adjustments, Output signal delay up to 30ms per channel, output phase 0/180 degrees per channel, Input and Advanced output signal mixers, output trim controls and one of the most extensive selections of crossover damping types and mixed slops available of any processor in the 12V market.

Need more? Integrating into your OEM system? No problem!

All of the new Pro-Series DSP models come MAESTRO AR compatible! With the Maestro AR interface module, Maestro T-Harness, and a data cable the AR module allows for an easy plug and play interface to a wide variety of currently OEM amplified vehicles while retaining all of your vehicle’s OEM controls and features. The PS8-50 is also equipped with the latest in signal sensing technology capable of detecting DC or Signal based signals and with a plethora of customized signal and timing controls the ARC Audio PS8-50 makes integrating into your vehicles existing audio system a snap!
