CPD 1600

The CPD1600 is part of Wharfedale Pro’s latest line of professional power amplifiers driving earth shaking audio from the front of your venue, all the way to the back.

For using in stereo the amplifier delivers 400W RMS per channel at 8 Ohms and 650W RMS per channel at 4 Ohms; a suitable power for small to medium sized complete PA systems. In bridged mode at 4 Ohms the amplifier generates 1600W RMS, perfect for powering a subwoofer integrated into a larger PA system for example.

Maximum headroom audio fidelity and durability are of course vital, whilst additionally we pride ourselves on unbeatable value. The CPD series is manufactured under our strict quality assurance as are all Wharfedale Pro products, making an amp you can trust from price to performance.

Technology
Working in stereo, parallel and bridged modes CPD1600 is built for a multitude of sound system formations. Brand new class AB topology has resulted in a dynamic, high headroom amp made for propelling your loudspeakers through thick and thin with complete clarity.
Precision Control
Large rotary dials accurately adjust gain levels, and you will know when to do so from the clear and simple front panel. A 4 segment led formation displays shows vital power status, level, limit and protect information, keeping the sound engineer in the know.
Protection & Durability
The CPD1600 is rife with technology that offers complete protection for your peace of mind. A built-in switchable limiter allows over 8Vrms signal through without distortion. Additionally it is equipped with thermal, overcurrent, DC and output short protect features. Professional audio equipment is an investment. That is why the adept components of the amplifier are housed within a 2U steel chassis which is universally rack mountable. This hard wearing all-steel casing also features a removable air filter in the front bracket which can be cleaned or replaced easily.
Easy Cleaning
Amplifiers often work in hot and dusty environments and, over time, the fans of an amplifier can easily suck this in.

Dirty cooling fans reduce efficiency and can lead to overheating.

Its for this reason that we made the CPD series easy to clean. Simply unscrew the front grille, bush off the air filters, and put the grille back on.

This easy maintenance means that a CPD amplifier can survive in the most hostile of working environments.
