Internally, the IA150-2, IA60-12, IA200-2C, and IA800-8C amplifiers utilize Hypex amplification technologies that help the amps perform at high levels while running at 93 percent energy efficiency. 

In the field, the 1U- and 2U-high amplifiers are configurable to 1, 2, 3, 6, 8 or 12 channel solutions.

In the case of the “C” models, the letter denotes the amplifier's optional IP connection capabilities, which enable integrators to access the products through a web browser connected on the same network. 

In addition, the amps incorporate status and signal LEDs that communicate the amps' operational status, including if the amplifier is clipping. Power options include trigger inputs and audio signal sensing.
