Product Description

The PS 4x4 features a backlit linear meter to monitor input voltage, which gives the user a familiar analog-style readout when monitoring voltage from a power source. The PS 4x4 has a backlit linear ammeter showing load current in amperes. This additional meter gives an analog "real-world" look at how much power you are using; hence the term "power station". While the associated voltmeter stays relatively stable and varies slightly with line voltage and house wiring, the ammeter varies much more, as power is consumed. For example, if the unit is in a rack with digital equipment and preamps, it may not vary a lot (even if you had 8 200 watt network computers hooked up, it would show if all are up and running). However, if it is in a rack with one or more power amps, the meter's indicator may be bouncing all around - and providing a great indication of output.

The PS 4x4 also features ART's "4x4" distribution on the back of the unit -- four of the eight rear outputs are 1.25 inches apart. This allows the user to plug in wide power cables and multiple wall wart devices, and still have eight total power outlets to choose from.

Built into the PS 4x4 is a surge and spike protection system, designed to protect powered equipment from harmful electric surges and spikes. The unit also has RFI and EMI filtering, a 15 amp breaker, and a total power capacity of 1800 watts. The PS 4x4 also features a front-located on/off power switch (which lights up when turned on), and a front-mounted circuit breaker reset switch. The rugged, all-steel chassis occupies 1U rack spaces and is intended for installation into standard 19 in. equipment racks.

Applications for the PS 4x4 include: live sound systems/PA, permanent or fixed installations, church, club and practice PA systems, DJ sound systems, home and project recording systems, and monitor systems.

The PS 4x4 features a one-year warranty. zZounds is an authorized dealer of ART products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Product"
Overall: Got this item with a little hesitation but once it arrived I knew it was well worth the $$. This meter not only shows voltage in, it shows amperage out also which is a nice feature to have since all of you DJ components are relying on not blowing a breaker. The unit also has 2 extendable lamps that slide up with a dimmer control which is nice to have while doing DJ Gigs

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Dedicated power."
Sound: No sound. Feature: No features that I know of, it just works. It has built in lights so that if something on your rack doesn't have buttons or knobs that light up, that won't be a problem in the dark. Ease of Use: Just plug it up, then plug stuff into it. Quality: I would assume it's all you need. Value: I think it's decent. Manufacturer Support: I don't see myself ever needing support for this. The Wow Factor: I guess it depends on how much you need it. It looks legit because it is. Overall: I won't ever have to think about power again.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
