L-Acoustics Adds Color to Enclosures

L-Acoustics has launched the new 8XTi and 12XTi coaxial enclosures, engineered for the fixed installation market.

L-Acoustics has launched the new 8XTi and 12XTi coaxial enclosures, engineered for the fixed installation market. Sharing the electro-acoustic design of the company's XT series, the 8XTi and 12XTi feature streamlined cabinetry and discrete rigging that can be color-matched according to an architect's specifications, according to the company.

L-Acoustics officials say the XTi series can be acoustically and mechanically modeled using L-Acoustics' Soundvision 3D simulation software or with the EASE/CATT data for acoustic design consultants. XTi enclosures are flexible and cost-effective, says the company, because the exploit rationalized production and implementation of the hybrid and flat presets found in the new LA-Network Manager v1.2.

Point-source technology suits the XTi series to distributed applications in semi-reverberant spaces where a reflected source can offer a more coherent radiation field with less reflected virtual sources than a dual horn-woofer combination, the company says. Point-source systems are also reportedly adapted to proximity applications such as stage monitoring, front-fills, and under-balcony fills, resulting in natural studio monitor sound quality.

The 8XTi and 12XTi are available as plug-and-play solutions with LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers, which come with a complete set of dedicated preset libraries for theaters, clubs, concert halls, broadcast, and multipurpose facilities for front-of-house, fill and monitor modes. The integrated package offers contractors a high amplifier density, high efficiency for lower power consumption, and less heat, the company says. The LA4 and LA8 also integrate Ethernet-based network capability, allowing for simultaneous networking of up to 253 units.

The 8XTi and 12XTi are expected to begin shipping in December 2009 and will be available in maroon-grey and white. A custom color program is also available to match the systems to almost any installation.
