The DD+ / DQ+ series is designed for the most demanding live audio users in touring rigs. Three models with two and four channel offers range in power from 3600 to 10000 watts, all in 2 RU space chassis and 10 kg (22 lbs).

The DD+ / DQ+ models are based on Class D output circuit controlled by KIND modulator. The great advantages of this technology are: low heat dissipation, compact size, and KIND sonic integrity. Thanks to the high efficiency the DD+ / DQ+ series dramatically reduce power distribution demands compared to other class high power amplifiers.

In addition to higher power, the DD+ / DQ+ Series offers higher input voltage, multiple selectable input gains, and with the four channel models a very high power density.

The high efficient global power supply is regulated (R-SMPS), works anywhere in the world and offers PFC (Power Factor Correction). The regulated power supply easily deals with a very high variation in the AC mains voltage: it can drop by up to 20% below its nominal level e.g. to 180VAC instead of 230VAC without any loss of the amplifier’s rated output power.

DD+ / DQ+ Series incorporates comprehensive warning and protection features to safeguard the amplifier and all connected loudspeaker drivers. Front-panel indicators give clear warnings when any potential problems are detected. Protection measures are enabled only when critical thresholds are passed or at start-up. Additionally, a soft-start circuit limits initial current draw when amplifier is turned on. The complete protection / warning suite includes: Short circuit, open circuit, thermal, RF protection, mains over / lower voltage, on/off muting, DC fault shutdown, clip limiter. Under normal use these features are inaudible and all protection methods are independent for each channel. The L.S.C. protection constantly monitors the current at the amplifier’s output. When load’s current exceed the amplifier’s limit, the output voltage will be automatically re-adjusted to keep the output devices in a security condition. An additional circuit, with automatic reset, shut down the amplifier’s channel if a full short is made between a positive output and GND. The temperature management system sense the output devices temperature. In case of inadequate ventilation or overload, the hi-temp LED start to blinking and a level compensation process will be enabled. This protection safeguard the amplifier and prevent the definitive muting for overtemperature.

The cooling is front to back airflow. All DD+ / DQ+ models are built in the same chassis size, with common back panel layouts to facilitate easy racking and hookup.

The DD+ / DQ+ series comes with four (4) years warranty, and like any other KIND AUDIO amplifier is entirely thinked, designed, and handcrafted in ITALY.
