NEXT-proaudio unveils medium-format line array
The Portuguese manufacturer NEXT-proaudio has unveiled the LA210x, a medium format three-way, coaxial, active line array element designed to support a wide range of mid to large-sized touring applications and installations where easy to use, from transportation to installation and rigging are critical. Built-in powerful DSP and amplification eliminates amplifier racks, long loudspeaker cables, and basic system calibration.
Custom made European transducers and a maximally optimised acoustic design provide excellent sound fidelity at very high SPL levels. The LA210x features dual 10-inch (3-inch voice coil) neodymium woofers and a ground-breaking coaxial ring radiator loaded by an exclusively developed OSWG waveguide. This acoustic design delivers exceptional phase coherence and consistent coverage down to 300Hz and the most accurate transient reproduction.
Onboard, advanced, powerful 96kHz/40bit SHARC DSP engine, monitored by built-in LCD screen with a preset loading encoder, can be remotely monitored and controlled through ethernet by a PC. The full-featured PC-software automatically identifies each device and allows simultaneous control of multiple devices through grouping facility. Everything you need to fine-tune the sound of your system is right there.
Engineered for both touring and installation the system is driven by a passively cooled 2000W three-way ultra-efficient Class-D amplifier module releasing 1000W for LF section, 500W for MF section and 500W for the HF section. Integrated universal mains power supply with PFC provides consistency and optimum performance anywhere in the world.
The three-point rigging system allows for quick and easy system set up. The LA210X elements are easily connected via two front links. A rear centre link allows the user to define relative splay angles from 1° to 10°. The system will automatically lock to the predefined angles when lifting the array.
