Amplifiers do pretty much what they describe—they amplify. In the case of Power Amplifiers (sometimes called audio power amplifiers or power amps), they increase power availability to meet the needs of an electronic source. Power amplifiers increase low-powered audio signals, such as those from microphones, instruments, loudspeakers, or headphones. Choose from a variety of power amplifier models to meet specific wattage or channel configuration requirements for your particular project.
The uses for power amplifiers are highly versatile—they can be beneficial pretty much wherever you have a low-level audio signal that needs a boost. This includes sound reinforcement, live concerts, entertainment and special events, portable PA, home audio (theater, studio, office), or instrumental performances.
One particularly common need for power amplifiers is passive loudspeakers: while all speakers need a sort of amplifier to function, powered speakers come with amplifiers built-in, whereas passive speakers operate using external power amplifiers. The mix-and-match nature of passive speakers and their components means that you can coordinate, scale, and personalize your audio equipment to your project’s needs—great for live sound setups that need to change or evolve over time!
