Powersoft X8 is a proven amplification platform for live touring, thanks to its worldwide compatible three-phase power supply and fully featured DSP. Custom presets allow full compatibility with passive and bi-amplified AUDIOFOCUS loudspeakers.

X4’s DSP provides non-boolean routing and mixing, multi-stage equalization with raised-cosine, IIR and FIR filters, delay up to 2s in input processing and 100ms for time alignment, gain and polarity adjustment, crossover, peak limiters, TruePower™ limiters, and Active DampingControl™.

The power supply permits worldwide AC acceptance and direct connection to any regional power line configuration: it is now suitable for Single Phase, Bi-Phase, or Three Phase operation from 85 VAC up to 440 VAC without the need for manual selection. True Three Phase load balancing is directly achievable by the unit without any complex load assignment in the power distribution system design.
