IP65 Certified

Rain or shine peace of mind.  All DRONE models are IP65 Certified.  

What does that mean ?  
Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment.

Water projected in powerful jets (12.5mm nozzle) against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.

Hi-Z and LOw-Z

Select the best option for your project……

Standard DRONE models are 8 Ohm but, for larger installations DRONE is also available with quality, specifically selected low distortion internal transformers.  These ‘T’ models allow for easy installation into any 70 V / 100 V system.  T Models can also operate at 8 Ohms.

FIR Preset Library

Download the FIR presets to get the most from your DRONE system when using with the SC-48 FIR or DP-F / N series amplifiers.

Power it up

For a tidy installation, the DP-4035i 4-channel amplifier is the perfect amplification solution for either Hi-Z or Lo-Z systems.
