Comments Connections: Input: XLR, barrier strip Output: 5-way binding posts, 2 sets/channel
The power amplifier being of two channels, shall deliver 750W into 8? per channel, 1200W into 4? per channel. The amplifier shall be capable of providing 1200W per channel into a 70 volt distribution system without the need for step-up transformers. The amplifier being of two completely independent power supplies per channel shall be capable of operating from separate AC branch circuits and to provide independent operation with the exception of the series (bridge-mono) mono and the parallel mono operation. The amplifier shall be capable of series bridge-mono operation thereby providing 2400W RMS output into 8?. The amplifier shall have a thermal shutdown system to protect the power devices from over-temperature operation. This thermal protection system shall be self-resetting. The amplifier shall provide input limiting to protect the output devices against short circuits or against non-musical excessive high frequency signals. Each amplifier shall independently shut down to protect against DC offset present at the outputs, or an internal power supply fault. The amplifier shall have slow start up and muted inputs on turn-on. The amplifier shall have a voltage gain of 34dB. Noise shall be at least -100dB below 750 W/8?, A-Weighted, from 20Hz-20kHz. Total harmonic distortion shall be less that 0.5% and inter modulation distortion shall be less that 0.1%. The frequency response shall be less than 0.5dB, 20Hz-20kHz. The front panel controls shall consist of per channel; one level control, one master power switch and one sequence switch. The rear panel connectors shall consist of per channel; 3 input barrier terminals, one 3-pin locking input connector, two sets of dual bind post output connectors, two barrier sequence terminals and one positive locking AC power cord. The amplifier shall provide input configuration switches to allow in rack selection of dual mono, series mono, clip eliminator and 3-pin polarity configuration. A cooling fan with removable filter shall operate on two speeds that is determined by the heat sink temperature. The dimensions shall allow for standard 19* EIA rack mounting. It shall be 5.25″ high and 12.75″ deep. The amplifier shall weigh 48 pounds. The maximum input current requirements per channel for a 1200W output in to 4? shall be 20 amps at 120V, 60Hz. The power amplifier shall be CARVER PT-2400.

• Lightweight – 48 lbs. (PT-2400)
46 lbs. (PT-1800)
• Fully modular dual monaural design (from power switch to AC line cord).
• High efficiency (50% input to output).
• Positive locking detachable dual AC line cords.
• Compact – only 12.75″ deep.
• Rugged, quiet, 100 CFM thermally controlled cooling system.
• Compression circuit for long term excessive high frequencies signals.
• Remote sequential power on/off feature.
• Clipping eliminator circuit.

    Good night, I like the sound of this carver power plant, PT2400. I have a series PM600, PM1200, but I lost one plant in my house. one person take the rack where was the PT2400 and i will desire to by this aplifi..
    Any question, how, if there is a money control in venzuela. any thing form..

    Atte, Monbterossi Enzo

    Hi, I have a Carver PT 2400, one channel is totally blown/burnt beyond repair.
    Where can I purchase a complete amplifier module?

    saludos tengo un pt2400 y tengo los dos transformadores quemados donde puedo comprarlos soy de venezuela probe con rescontruido y no sirven

  5. Cameron mercer says:

    Good Evening,
    Is the Carver PT 2400 still available?
    240volts power supply?
    Do you have a 4 channel version?
    Shipping to Australia?
    Thank you
    Great Design!!!
