The new GT1600 power amp from Matrix Amplification is a 1600 watt (bridged mono @ 8 ohms) is part of the company's family of GT series.
The GT 1600 gives 800 watts a side at 4 ohms in stereo mode, 480 watts a side at 8 ohms and 240 watts a side in stereo at 16 ohms and is designed for bassists. Guitarists who need to drive higher rated speaker cabs or 7,8 and 9 string players needing to take advantage of high powered subs will also find the GT1600 to their liking, the company says. The amp fits in a 2U rack mount format at 4.7kgs in weight. A 80mm fan is included.
Connections on the GT1600 are via Neutrix combi 1/4" XLR input jacks and combi speakon 1/4" output jacks. Like all the GT amps the amp has stereo mode where channel A and B inputs feed outputs A and B respectively, Parallel mode where the input of channel A feeds both output A and B, useful when feeding the amp a mono signal but wanting to use a 4 ohm cab and an 8 ohm cab without linking them or rewiring or providing cabs with the same mono signal. Bridged mode completes the switching options which enables the dedicated bridged output socket on the rear of the unit.
