CP-16i 16 Channel Cool Power Amplifier

The CP-16i Audio Amplifier is ideal for descerning listeners who demand the highest quality audio in every room. Capable of delivering 100W per channel of true audiofile-grade sound, the amplifier easily expands the reach of any audio distribution system. With all that power and 16 channels available, all kinds of zone configurations are possible. Engineered to perform as well as it sounds, the CP-16i features highly efficient, Class-D amplification with overload detection - all designed to fit into a compact, 1RU chassis.

Perfect for residential and commercial settings, the experience is the same in every room - amazing. Go ahead and put RTI technology to the test - you’ll never miss a beat.

  • Sixteen channel amplifier utilizes Cool Power® technology.
  • Power output is 100W per channel at 4 ohms.
  • Bridgeable audio outputs for increasing power to 200W per channel.
  • Easily expands the RTI AD-4x, AD-8x and AD-16x audio distribution systems.
  • Compatible with virtually any audio distribution system.
  • Power control via voltage triggers or audio signal sense.
  • Signal Sense feature automatically powers the CP-16i on when an audio signal is detected or puts the unit is standby mode when no signal is present.
  • Voltage trigger pass-through for powering on/off additional amplifiers.
  • Thermal overload and OC (Overcurrent) monitor indicators protect the amplifier.
  • Rackmounting requires just 1RU or use included feet for free standing installation.
  • Class-D amplifier technology ensures efficient heat dissipation and low power consumption.
