A Word About Power Ratings
Music is, by its nature, dynamic. While it’s relatively common for the two main channels in a stereo amplifier to be asked to simultaneously deliver high power levels, it is very uncommon for more than two channels to be called upon to deliver high power continuously at the same time, and this almost never occurs outside of laboratory test conditions.
In order to deliver the most dynamic performance where it counts –
The power ratings for the XPA Gen3 modular power amplifier are the same with both channels driven continuously in the two-
