From small residential systems to massive commercial installs, the Klipsch KDA-1000 is designed for maximum install flexibility — offering low impedance and 70V/100V compatibility for distributed line applications. These impedance settings are fully independent from channel to channel — so an installer can run one channel low impedance with another channel 70V/100V for full customization and optimization of their system.

In addition to password protected channel assignments, gain settings, EQ, and limiting, the DSP provides presets for almost every Klipsch speaker on the market — optimizing acoustic performance and power handling for these products with a single click.
