UK - After L-Acoustics recently announced new products during the company’s keynote at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, visitors will be able to experience the technology firsthand at PLASA Show 2023 (Olympia London, 3-5 September, stand J1).
Products on show will include the L2 with its patented Progressive Ultra-Dense Line Source (PULS) technology. L Series comprises two elements designed to work together or independently: L2 above and L2D below. One L2 or L2D element provides the same contour as four K2 elements in a format that is 46% smaller and 40% lighter.
The audio benefits of L Series encompass industry-leading SPL per size, unparalleled consistency over the audience area, and improved rejection everywhere else, says the company. L Series also revolutionises deployment with a smaller, lighter footprint that reduces truck space and requires fewer elements, cutting the number of actions needed to load in and out.
L Series will be displayed on the L-Acoustics stand and showcased in the innovation gallery, where it is nominated for the PLASA Awards for Innovation.
Also present at the stand is the LA7.16 amplified controller. Launched earlier this year, the LA7.16 offers supreme flexibility to meet real-time power needs while offering a level of efficiency and sustainability unheard of in modern touring applications. The high-density format - 16×16 architecture in a 2U format - powers more line array speakers than any similar-sized amplifier, meaning fewer racks on tour, which translates directly to energy and time savings along with the ability to address multichannel and hybrid productions while offering a level of efficiency and sustainability required in modern touring applications. The high-density format saves space, weight, and time in deployment.
In addition, the L-Acoustics stand will feature an interactive L-ISA Studio workstation where sound engineers and artists can explore the immersive possibilities of L-ISA technology. Visitors will be able to learn the software firsthand, gaining insight into the future of audio production and live sound. Developed to improve the workflow and unleash the creative potential of sound creators, L-ISA Studio seamlessly interfaces with leading digital audio workstations, show-control software, and game engines. It also offers compatibility with various 3D audio format outputs, including Dolby Atmos and multi-channel configurations.
Also, on display at this year’s PLASA Show is Soka, the smaller sibling of the powerful Syva. Launched last year, Soka combines innovative line source technology with a sleek aesthetic featuring nine integrated 3.5-inch MF drivers and three one-inch HF transducers to transmit a wide 140-degree horizontal directivity and a highly controlled 26-degree vertical directivity. Soka and its companion SB6i subwoofer are both ultra-shallow 3.9 inches - designed to be easily enclosed in-wall or discreetly mounted on-wall - yet are capable of tremendous power and bandwidth. Soka can also be combined with the larger SB10i subwoofer, making it ideal for main music systems in residential, commercial, luxury, and hospitality spaces. Rounding out the range of solutions is X4i, a superbly unobtrusive and highly weatherised coaxial loudspeaker tailored to the unique needs of installation applications.
