L-Acoustics Debuts Self-Powered Coaxials

L-Acoustics recently announced the worldwide launch of two self-powered two-way coaxial loudspeakers, the 108P and 112P, both combining the significant advantages of L-Acoustics' proven coaxial point source technology with the convenience of self-powered performance and onboard digital signal processing.

"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 multipurpose, easy-to-use portable applications," says Christian Heil, L-Acoustics president. "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 multipurpose systems."

Both 108P and 112P full-range self-powered loudspeaker systems continue the proven coaxial technology lineage of L-Acoustics. Coaxial design provides total wavefront coherency over the entire dispersion pattern and exhibit characteristics that are free of the polar-lobing effects. The end result is natural, studio monitor-quality sound that is ideal for near-field monitoring, proximity fill-use, and small- to medium-size FOH applications. The combination of self-power with digital processing provides four application-engineered presets, offering optimum versatility in any portable application.

108P
The 108P is a 500W/250W bi-amplified loudspeaker containing a 1in. exit HF compression driver coaxially loaded into an 8in. LF transducer, resulting in a 100-degree axisymmetric directivity.

A precise and flat frequency response, combined with exceptionally high power/size ratio, allows the 108P to be used as a high-performance near-field monitor for live FOH mix engineering. Magnetic insulation also makes the system suitable for stereo or 5.1 monitoring in recording studio or postproduction settings.

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 visually discreet solution for floor monitoring.

112P
The 112P is a 1000W mono-bridged amplified loudspeaker containing a 1.4in. exit compression driver with pattern control loading provided by a 12in. transducer with 90-degree axisymmetric directivity.

The combination of outstanding sonic performance with high SPL makes the 112P the speaker of choice for high-performance multipurpose applications. Due to its compact, wedge-shaped format and axisymmetrical directivity, the112P provides an exceptionally high-performance floor monitor solution. When used with L-Acoustics subwoofers, the 112P also produces excellent results for side-fill, drum monitoring, or medium-power FOH applications. Optimum versatility is extended through the use of practical and functional rigging accessories.
