Triad 8-zone 16-channel power amplifier

The Triad 8-zone power amplifier delivers high performance, reliability and robust amplification for the whole home in a compact form factor, providing the perfect solution for distributed audio systems. Designed around time-tested and reliable ICE power technology, the 8-zone power amplifier delivers 100 watts per channel of high-resolution audio. Superior audio quality and fast wake-from-standby make this amplifier ideal for every audio enthusiast’s home.
Triad Power Amplifiers with Triad speakers, Triad Audio Matrix Switches and Control4 EA Series Entertainment and Automation Controllers deliver a fantastic high-resolution audio experience throughout the home.

Powerful 100W per channel driven by ICE power modules to deliver a dynamic, high-resolution audio experience.

Bridgeable outputs provide double the amplification for areas that require more power.

Class-D amplification runs cool, allowing you to stack one amplifier on top of another.

Fast wake-from-standby using 12V trigger for time-sensitive audio announcements and quick audio-zone startup.

Three power mode control options, 12V trigger, audio sensing, or always on.

Standby mode saves energy when not in use.

Each zone can be independently linked to the global audio input to share one input across multiple sets of speakers.

Share an audio source across multiple power amplifiers using the global audio output.

Over-current and thermal protections prevent damage due to short circuits, incorrect wiring or heat.

Rack-mount ears included.
