CP-16i 16 Channel Cool Power® Amplifier

The CP-16i Audio Amplifier is ideal for discerning listeners who demand the highest quality audio in every room. Capable of delivering 100W of true audiophile-grade sound to 16 channels, the Cool Power amplifier easily expands the reach of any audio distribution system. Engineered for performance, the CP-16i features highly efficient, Class-D amplification, overload detection and a compact chassis that fits nicely into one rack space.

Perfect for residential and commercial settings, the experience is the same in every room - amazing. Put RTI technology to the test - you’ll never miss a beat.

Included in the box:
CP-16i, power cord, rack ears (2) with screws, feet with Screws (4), speaker terminal blocks (8), IO port terminal block (1)


Simplified Control
The Signal Sense function automatically turns the amp on with an audio signal is detected and then puts the amp in standby mode when the signal is gone.   

Superior Performance
Utilizes proven audio amplification technology to deliver premium sonic performance.

Power & More Power
Command the room with 100W per channel at 4Ω or 200W per channel at 8Ω bridged.

Compact Design
At just 1RU high, the CP-16i leaves room to install more components in the rack.

Cool Power Class D amplifier technology ensures efficient heat dissipation and low power consumption.
