Make Your Outdoor System Really Sing

The NEAR® 3XL was specifically designed to  power outdoor loudspeaker systems. It belts out  350 watts per channel efficiently and reliably – more than enough to power any outdoor speaker to concert-level volumes.  The 3XL brings the power, sophistication and cool-running durability of pro/commercial amplifiers to the residential market.

With its onboard pro level digital signal processing (DSP) integrators can optimize the performance of any system with independent channel control of frequency response, crossovers, phase/arrival time and dynamic range.

The 3XL’s dual mono design allows each channel to simultaneously drive any speaker load from low impedance (4/8-Ohm) to 70/100V.

Complete Control for Optimum Sound

​But what separates the 3XL is its vast array of digital features that allow integrators to optimize the performance of any combination of outdoor speakers and subwoofers. The 3XL’s DSP engine provides 12-band parametric equalization, adjustable crossover filters, adjustable peak limiter, RMS compressor, plus phase and time delay for each channel.

Despite the complexity of these features, the 3XL is remarkably easy to set up and use. NEAR has programmed-in sixteen preset configurations, perfectly crossed-over, equalized and power limited for the most common combinations of NEAR speakers. More advanced users can access the full array of DSP controls through a GUI accessed via laptop connected to the Ethernet port.

Smart Power

The 3XL uses a direct-drive, transformer-less design for maximum damping factor and precise bass control. Two separate Class-D power amplifier modules, each with its own dedicated PFC/Switched-Mode power supply, are crafted onto one chassis in a unique dual-mono configuration, allowing each channel to operate independently in low-impedance mode (4/8 Ohms) or high-impedance mode (70V/100V distributed). Beyond its amplification power, the 3XL allows any input to be routed to any output. Inputs A or B (or A+B) can be routed to either Amplifier Output A or B or Line Output.
