12x50w with dsp.. that's insane!
Why 12x 50 though?

Why not 2x25w for tweets, 2x50w for mids, 2x100w for midbass and 1x250+ for sub?

I think I'd buy something like that...

...needs to be easy to program for me as well, I get It-panic when I see a laptop!

I'd kill for ,

2x100
4x200 (bridgable)
2x600 (bridgable)

I know it can be done and wouldnt even have to be that large with today's tech.

That amp could be used to run so many configurations. Not only speaker counts but power requirements as well. I had that all the 8 channel Amps are so gimpy with the power. We can always turn down.

Hi friends! I'm Brazilian, I apologize for not mastering your language, Google Translate is trying to help me ... I think you can understand, below are my considerations:

My God, what is the use of 12 amplified channels and with only 22 W rms ??

Note: As with Pioneer players, these 50 W must refer to peak power.

I can only imagine 2 things:

1) The head of the designer thought that a stupid will use 3-way kits on both the front and rear of the same vehicle. And mid power with only 22 W ... And the whole system without subwoofer ... This can be concluded because the crossover has only 3 ways, so that 1 way to the subwoofer would be missing.

2) Some of these channels, say 8, can be combined to form bridge outputs of about 50 W rms.

The second alternative has some logic ...

a) The possibility of feeding 4 mids with 50 W and 4 tweeters with 22 W of each remaining channel.

b) Feed a 3-channel 4-channel 50 W and 2 22-W kit for tw's. And there are still 2 channels of 22 W left to the rear, but of course, as stated above the system could not have subwoofer.


c) Feed a 50 W 4-channel front 2-way kit and another 4 W 22-channel rear kit.



So what's your guess?

this thread went off the hobbyist dream deep end real fast.. lol

guys, its pioneer. I repeat, pioneer. the heck do you actually expect out of them? At the end of the day, theyre a business that needs to make money. These insane dreams would only sell like 50 units, not tens of thousands. come on now.

12x50w is not really meant for 2.1 setups. It's for folks with 16 speakers 5.1/7.1 architecture. You run two of these and a separate small class D amp for sub; 24x50w to feed the mass of speakers in surround setups. I could see a future where more DSP will do stereo to 5.1 upmixing to make sense of these 12x50w amps.

whats even worse is that it doesnt have independant LEFT/RIGHT EQ if this is anything like the new 4 and 8 channel dsp's that they brought out

It is already possible to get a sense of the value by Alibaba:

I believe the 8 channel will be a replacement for the s1000a, both have pretty much the same value.

Already the 12 channels costs 2.35 times more than the s1000a, here in the US would be around $ 470.00.
