The Macro-Tech-i family of analog amplifiers by Crown features an increase in power over the original line, while reducing weight by more than half. The three models—the MA-5000i, MA-9000i, and MA-12000i—are equipped with comprehensive status, fault, and load monitoring via standard Ethernet networking and Harman Pro’s HiQnet™ and System Architect™ software. A universal power-factor corrected power supply ensures that the new models can be used anywhere in the world. The MA-5000i features 1,800W of power per channel at 2 ohms (with 2565W 20mS burst), 2,000W at 4 ohms, 1,250W at 8 ohms, 3,600W at 4 ohms bridged, and 4,000W at 8 ohms bridged. The MA-9000i has 2,500W of power per channel at 2 ohms (with 4570W 20mS burst), 3,000W at 4 ohms, 1,500W at 8 ohms, 5,000W at 4 ohms bridged, and 6,000W at 8 ohms bridged. Finally, the MA-12000i features 3,500W per channel at 2 ohms (with 5900W 20mS burst), 4,000W at 4 ohms, 2,100W at 8 ohms, 7,000W at 4 ohms bridged, and 8,000W at 8 ohms bridged.
