The NXE1.52 Network Power Amplifier from Ashly Audio is the networkable version of the nX amplifier. It comes with Ethernet control, serial data control, aux preamp outputs, instant standby mode, preset recall, fault condition logic outputs, and optional network audio and digital audio capability. All these are controlled using Ashly Audio's Protea software suite. This amplifier is designed to meet the most demanding live sound and fixed installation sound systems in stadiums, arenas, performance venues, worship spaces, and convention centers.




 2-channel high-output, lightweight amplifier with programmable output on each channel 

Power saving, Energy Management System (Ashly EMS) automatic <1W sleep mode is defeatable 

Front panel power switch and level controls can be disabled for security 

Neutrik Combo XLR: 1/4" TRS jack plus Euroblock input connectors

Neutrik speakON twist locking loudspeaker connectors for security, safety, and reliability

Rear panel DIP switches per channel for selection of high pass filter, limiter, input gain, and High-Z or Low-Z speaker output configuration

Ethernet port for use with control and monitoring of amplifier functions, with front panel COM activity LED

Serial data port for use with Ashly remote control devices, or RS-232 converter (sold separately) for third party controllers (INA-1)

Uses Protea software to remotely disable all front panel controls, including the on/off switch, for a tamper-proof installation

Real-time clock with event scheduler

Instant standby mode, 30% reduction in power consumption with on/off triggered by contact closure, software control, or event schedule

Programmable power-on delay

Preset recall via contact closure, software control, remote control, or event scheduler

Auxiliary preamplifier outputs and fault condition logic outputs

Cobranet or Dante network audio (sold separately) and AES3 digital audio input with pass-through

Ducking at mixer, peak hold indicator, in/out per filter, key engage, lock per filter, and global lock
