10 Space Rack
Fully compatible with older 500 series racks, the Powerhouse gives you 10 spaces for plenty of room to create the most elaborate signal chains.
Built inside all Workhorse racks are special safety circuits for each module to protect the rack and adjacent modules from mishap.
Standard 19" Rack
Suited for recording studios, broadcast stations and live touring, the Powerhouse fits all standard 19” racks using only three spaces. (3RU)
Double sided military grade circuit board with through hole parts that are soldered on both sides for improved performance. Full ground plane to reduce noise.
Like all Radial products the Powerhouse is made ‘road ready’ with 14 gauge steel construction and welded corners for greater durability and improved shielding.
To keep noise out of the box, the Powerhouse employs an external supply just like full-size studio mixers. A 5-pin XLR is used to secure the power cable.
The Powerhouse is equipped separate chassis and earth ground lugs for studios with sophisticated grounding schemes. Rear panel mounted for easy access.
Unlike older racks that require soldering, linking two channels in stereo is done by sliding the LINK switch in the up position.
¼” inputs and outputs on each slot are wired in parallel with the XLRs. Used to cross-patch modules using standard TRS cables for parallel processing.
Standard XLR connectors with large channel ID numbers on each slot make it quick & easy to patch with professional balanced line level gear.
The Powerhouse eliminates the need for inter-module patch cables with an innovative FEED function that sends the output from one module to the next.
This ¼” TRS jack changes function depending on what module is connected. The function is determined by the manufacturer.
