LD Systems is proud to present the new DAVE G4X Series. Exactly 10 years after the release of the highly successful and long-running DAVE G3, the DAVE G4X sets new standards in the field of active 2.1 PA systems for DJs, live groups, solo entertainers, or parties. Available in four sizes and performance classes – from the particularly compact DAVE 10 G4X to the DAVE 18 G4X, which features a powerful 18” subwoofer – the DAVE G4X Series impresses across the board with its modern range of functions and a professional acoustic design in a variety of applications.
DAVE – a name that, at LD Systems, stands for active 2.1 PA systems that bring everything DJs and musicians need: a powerful and universally applicable sound, sophisticated features, and compact dimensions. With the DAVE G4X Series, LD Systems is now ushering in the revolution, having extensively redeveloped the extremely popular PA systems from the ground up. The models available are the DAVE 10 G4X (2 x double 4” satellites + 10” subwoofer, 680 W), the DAVE 12 G4X (2 x 6.5” satellites + 12” subwoofer, 1,460 W), the DAVE 15 G4X (2 x 8” satellites + 15” subwoofer, 2,060 W), and the DAVE 18 G4X (2 x 8” satellites + 18” subwoofer, 4,000 W).
All of the DAVE G4X versions now feature an integrated 6-channel mixer with all of the important input options for a wide variety of setups consisting of microphones, instruments, line-level signals and auxiliary players – wired and wireless, thanks to integrated Bluetooth for easy streaming via a smartphone or tablet. The mixer’s first two channels are designed as channel strips, allowing for the optional connection of a microphone, a high-impedance instrument – guitar and/or bass, for example – and line level sources. Stereo line inputs 3 + 4 are suitable for keyboards, synthesizers, drum machines, or small e-drum kits. Making the DAVE G4X Series even more versatile is the digital SPDIF stereo input, and the Bluetooth connectivity. This way, the setup can be expanded with a media player, computer or smartphone to play backing tracks, sound effects, intermission music, or to use the DAVE G4X as a karaoke system.
In addition to the enhanced functionality, LD Systems has redesigned and developed the DAVE G4X Series from the ground up. This benefits not only instruments and music, but also speech intelligibility when the PA is used for speech reinforcement. The acoustic concepts include new compression drivers and waveguides for homogeneous and directional dispersion, as well as FIR filters and state-of-the-art DSP technology for transparent, colouration-free sound. In addition, the subwoofer has been equipped with a larger voice coil and an optimised bass reflex system to reduce ventilation noise to a minimum.
The DAVE G4X Series is a compact all-round PA for use on the road and wins fans wherever it goes with its robust housing design (including polyurea coating) in all configurations. Last but not least, the selectable mode presets for classic stereo use or a setup with two closely spaced satellites on a T-stand above the subwoofer contribute to this – the DAVE G4X convinces sonically in all configurations. This latter preset, for example, allows for the interference-free clustering of two satellites through a special M/S division and reproduction of the stereo signal for more headroom and directivity.
LD Systems has also thought of all common applications when it comes to accessories. The range extends from custom-fit bags to a roller board and the aforementioned T-stand. A pole mount stand and a wall mount for the satellites are also available especially for the DAVE 10 G4X sound system.
The three bigger models of the series DAVE 12 G4X, 15 G4X and 18 G4X are available now. The DAVE 10 G4X model will be available from the beginning of 2023.
