SLS Loudspeakers will introduce the new award winning P-LS8695 Powered Compact Line Array speaker system at Winter NAMM 2005 (Booth #5222). The new system is a powered version of the highly acclaimed LS8695 Compact Line Source Array.
“Our engineering team was challenged to make what we consider the most effective line array speaker system even better, and they came up with the P-LS8695,” says Jeff Lowry, director of marketing for SLS. “The addition of power amplifiers integrated into the design allows for more user installation flexibility for both fixed and mobile applications. We believe that this system will have a very positive impact on the industry.”
The P-LS8695 incorporates a 24-bit, 96kHz DSP processing engine that was developed utilizing acoustic performance algorithms optimized for the original LS8695. The processing engine presents maximally flat response, while maintaining the excellent sonic fidelity associated with the system. Two high performance, high power digital amplifiers were incorporated to independently power the low & high frequency drivers, delivering superior sonic performance while maximizing power efficiency. At the heart of the P-LS8695 is a robust, high-voltage, high current power supply capable of maintaining amplifier supply rails under the most demanding loads and transients.
The integrated low frequency amplifier provides a thundering 1000 Watts of power to drive the ultra clean low and mid frequency ranges, while the integrated high frequency amp provides 500 Watts of power to deliver crisp and accurate high frequencies capable of meeting the enhanced bandwidth of today’s 24-bit, 96kHz digital format. The input to the amplifier section is fully balanced with adjustable sensitivity and a balanced transmitter is included for looping multiple P-LS8695 systems.
A selectable 80kHz High Pass Filter for the low frequency section when using the P-LS8695 with an additional subwoofer is available. An LED status indication for power, protect, peak, and signal presence rounds out the feature set.
“We are looking forward to setting a higher benchmark for the industry with the P-LS8695,” states Lowry. “At SLS we are dedicated to developing products that address the real world needs of audio professionals and the P-LS8695 certainly follows our tradition of excellence.”
