L-Acoustics launches two powered speakers at AES
|L-Acoustics used the 119th AES Convention in New York City to launch of two self-powered two-way coaxial loudspeakers, the 108P and 112P. Christian Heil, L-Acoustics President comments: "The introduction of a self-powered line of products does not indicate a change in our strategy, but an emphasis of L-Acoustics' position towards multi-purpose, easy-to-use portable applications. It is not in our intention to extend the concept of self-powered speakers to the entire L-Acoustics range. However this approach seems relevant to us for small- to medium-sized multi-purpose systems."
The 108P is a 500W / 250W bi-amplified loudspeaker containing a one-inch exit HF compression driver coaxially loaded into an eight-inch LF transducer resulting in a 100-degree axisymmetric directivity. A precise and flat frequency response combined with exceptionally high power/size ratio allow the 108P to be used as a high performance nearfield monitor for live FOH mix engineering. Magnetic insulation also makes the system suitable for stereo or 5.1 monitoring in recording studio or
For live sound reinforcement, the superb fidelity of the 108P provides optimum clarity for demanding applications such as classical music and opera. The wedged-shaped format also provides a low profile solution for floor monitoring.
The 112P is a 1000W mono-bridged amplified loudspeaker containing a 1.4" exit compression driver with pattern control loading provided by a 12" transducer with 90-degree axisymmetric directivity.
Its sonic performance and high SPL make the 112P the speaker suitable for high performance multi purpose applications. Due to its compact, wedge-shaped format and axisymmetrical directivity, the
112P provides a high-performance floor monitor solution. When used with L-Acoustics subwoofers, the 112P also is appropriate for side-fill, drum monitoring or medium-power FOH applications. Optimum versatility is extended through the use of practical and functional rigging
