PCM Datasheet

PCM series

The PCM series is our flagship touring grade 2 channel amplifier. Exemplifying over 15 years of research and development by SAE Audio, they feature our most advanced technologies in both Regulated Switch Mode Power Supplies and our patented Class I™ power modules. The PCM Series amplifiers deliver a massive power density (4600W per channel @ 2Ω with the largest PCM20) with unprecedented sonic quality from a very lightweight 2 rack-space amplifier. With this rock solid performance and extreme efficiency, the PCM Series amps represent the industry standard for world-class professional touring sound reinforcement applications.
