Power amplifiers need cooling. In most amps, heat-reducing air flow takes a convoluted path in and around internal components. Front to back, back-to-front-side-to-side…those nice perforated grilles look simple…until you look inside the amp and see the helter-skelter air flow (see drawing below left)
We didn’t want cooling air to just wander around inside the CA chassis, so we came up with our unique SailFlow™ architecture (right drawing below). It directs internal airflow strictly over the areas that generate the most heat, rather than arbitrarily over the whole amp. This keeps the already highly efficient CA Series even cooler and assures reliable, stable operation, even under heavy loads.
