The Fame MS 8002 Power Amplifier 2 x 820W is an excellent amp for anyone looking for a great all-rounder. The predecessor models impressed with their longevity, efficiency and above all reliability, helping to make them true classics. The completely redeveloped bestseller power amplifier series consists of the MS 5002, 8002 and 12002.
Starting with the front, this Class-AB amplifier with its simple design makes the most important information clearly available. On the left side are knobs to adjust the volume for every channel while 3 LEDs indicate the status of the output stage.
Clip LED: The Clip LED illuminates when the signal level is too high and is overloaded.
Protect LED: The Protection Mode indicates if a protection circuit is active (e.g. Limiter).
BR/PAR: This shows if the amplifier is operating in Bridge Mode or in Parallel.
On the right side you will find the On/Off switch. The series also offers circuits and mechanisms such as Soft Start, Short Circuit, Limiter, DC Fault, AC Line Fuse and Thermal Cut. Together with the 2-phase fans this is sufficient to make a safe and continuous operation in any location possible.
In comparison with its predecessor the housing design has been reduced to 2HU and thereby makes more space for additional equipment.
A Lo-Cut Filter is equipped and can be set to 120Hz or 90Hz – naturally it can also be bypassed. The middle switch allows you to select the Mode; Parallel, Stereo or Bridge mode. The last switch controls the sensitivity of the signal.
Even if this series isn’t the lightest on the market, it is still very portable and easy to install, so fixed installation isn’t necessarily a requirement.
