The PMA800DSP from Dayton Audio provides up to 800 watts of clean power (600W for low frequencies; 200W for highs) along with preset EQ curves, so you can build your own powered PA speakers, retrofit existing passive speakers, or breathe new life into those old powered speakers you thought were goners. Oh, did we mention it has Bluetooth, too?

We all know building your own speakers is the way to get the absolute best sound quality, and generally saves you a bunch of money compared to buying the big name-brand equivalents. It's also pretty well known that Dayton Audio offers the best bang-for-your-buck components for the speaker building enthusiast. Now, we're proud to present the PMA800DSP from Dayton Audio, a 2-way 800-watt powerhouse plate amp for the Pro Audio world.
Perfect for DJs, karaoke, live sound reinforcement, performers and presenters alike, the PMA800DSP provides not only plenty of good, clean power, but an abundance of additional features to make sure your show goes off without a hitch, and with a minimum of effort or additional hardware to lug around.
The PMA800DSP uses Class D amplification to provide prodigious power, while keeping weight and power consumption to a minimum. You get a total of 800 watts, with 600 watts for your woofer, and 200 watts for your compression driver. You also get a built-in electronic crossover at 3 kHz, 12 dB/octave, so you needn't worry about calculating, selecting, buying, and assembling crossover components for your bi-amping pleasure. It's already taken care of for you.
You'll also enjoy the luxury of having a 2-channel mixer on board, which means one less piece of rig to schlep for many situations. Each channel can accommodate XLR or 1/4" input, line or mic level signal. In addition to this creature comfort, you also get a Bluetooth receiver, so you can play backing tracks, break music, or whatever you need - without wires, adapters, and all the associated hassle - right from your smart phone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-enabled device. The mixer section also includes an XLR line output so you can feed your signal to another powered speaker or subwoofer. You can choose to send your mix, or only the signal from channel 2, on down the line. The mixer section is also home for all the LED indicators: power, signal, limiting, and Bluetooth status - everything you need to know, all at a glance.
Last, but certainly not least, there is a DSP section, which allows you to choose from four different EQ curves, or not. The Vocal setting is perfect for speaking engagements, with a lift in the midrange frequencies for clarity and presence. There's a setting for Music, which accentuates the highs and lows for a nice clear and punchy sound, as well as a Low Cut and High Cut setting. Another nice touch that adds up to even less stuff to carry and hassle with.
The moral of the story? It's the 21st century, Jack. You really don't need to have a box truck loaded down with four tons of heavy speakers, amps, seven miles of cable, and outboard gear to provide a satisfying and professional audio experience for your audience. You can do more with less, thanks to the wonders of modern science and technology. Leave the boring math part to Dayton Audio, and just build some speakers. Then get out there and play! Thank us later!
