Amplifier and DSP

The 1000 Watt (peak) power module delivers ample burst and continuous power for the loudspeaker’s matching transducers. Convection cooling provides heat dissipation, even in extreme climates, while contributing no additional background noise. Carefully tailored, subtle, and sophisticated dynamics processing is used to protect the drivers from damage and the performance from distortion. The result is a highly accurate and musical sound that maintains full signal integrity, even when pushed to high SPL.

Compact and Lightweight

CP produces a big sound from a small package. Ultra-compact and remarkably lightweight, CP is easy to load, carry, lift, and deploy in a wide range of portable and installed applications.

Flexible Design

CP presents a compact, unobtrusive, and stylish appearance that looks great in a wide range of applications. Both models can be utilized as either main PA (with included pole mount), a floor monitor, or installed via optional quick-connect yoke mount.


CP provides one-touch access to preset contours for the most commonly-used applications including Default (Full-Range), Default with External Subwoofer, Dance, Dance with External Subwoofer, Floor Monitor, and Speech.
