Has anyone have any info on this ? Its a new model, boasts some good specs on paper. W-audio have been a bit hit and miss in the past.. (imo)  i appreciate these are new but has anyone tried them yet or had any experiences / taken the lid off. More going on than an i-nuke ? 


Class D, has a retail of around £700 ish (also smaller models in the range)

''  Power output @ 8Ω: 2 x 1500Wrms
- Power output @ 4Ω: 2 x 2500Wrms
- Power output @ 2Ω: 2 x 4000Wrms
- Power output bridge @ 8Ω: 1 x 3400Wrms
- Power output bridge @ 4Ω: 1 x 5000Wrms
- Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz
- Input sensitivity: 1.2V, 32dB or 26dB
- Min. Load impedance (Stereo): 2Ω
- Min. Load impedance (Bridge): 4Ω
- Protection circuits: Soft start, limit, thermal, short circuit, overload, DC fault protection and AC power supply fuse
- LED indicators: Power, active, signal and clip
- Input connections: 2 x XLR sockets, 1 x powerCON mains input
- Output connections: 2 x speakON connectors and 2 pairs of binding posts
- Additional features: Switchable stereo, parallel and bridge and low pass filter




All look appealing (esp with trade account access), have a client who runs a charity music thing for youth clubs and wants to power 6 possibly 8  18sound 18lw24000's for cheap as possible, bang for buck type thing. Was also tempted with the 2 & 4 channel combo for dry hire, saves getting the decent stuff all marked and gashed up.. comes with warranty, prolight are pretty decent to deal with.. 


Im guessing they are too new for them to have serious use / testing, but anyone had them yet, first thoughts ?

It's a rebadging like the JAM Systems amps at Blue-Aran, right? Not saying that necessarily makes it bad as they've got to be happy to put their name on it at least, just to clarify that it's not an independent development (that might also help to identify it if someone can figure out from the chassis what it's a rebadging of exactly).

I have seen those before with a slight difference in the grills. Sanway made I think. 

If it is the Sanway these will produce the power they are supposed to and will do bass.

The 10K4 fp type im 99% sure is not made by sanway, there are lots of different factory's making fp type amplifiers nowadays.  Ive not seen those hot swapable output modules before, kind of an interesting "feature"...It might give you a clue to whos making them though.

The class d is also not a sanway, they dont make a high power class d.

It can be quite hard to tell who is making which amps from china , the factorys all copy each other and often use the same or similar front panels from the same front panel factory,  they also make amps that try to look like other amps but are not at all similar inside.

depends how long it can output 10kW for. has voltage peak limiting switches which suggests it isn't a completely Mickey-Mouse product. and I dont think BlueAran would be trying to sell them for 1700 if there wasn't sometihng to warrant that price,

Ha, just to clear up my post above.

I googled them at the above prices. Blue Aran are selling them at way below that price. It confused me there for a bit. With the huge price differential.
