L-Acoustics launches two powered speakers at AES

L-Acoustics used the 119th AES Convention in New York City to launch of two self-powered two-way coaxial loudspeakers, the 108P and 112P. Christian Heil, L-Acoustics President comments: "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 multi-purpose, easy-to-use portable applications. 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 multi-purpose systems."
The 108P is a 500W / 250W bi-amplified loudspeaker containing a one-inch exit HF compression driver coaxially loaded into an eight-inch LF transducer resulting in a 100-degree axisymmetric directivity. A precise and flat frequency response combined with exceptionally high power/size ratio allow the 108P to be used as a high performance nearfield monitor for live FOH mix engineering. Magnetic insulation also makes the system suitable for stereo or 5.1 monitoring in recording studio or post-production 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 low profile solution for floor monitoring.
The 112P is a 1000W mono-bridged amplified loudspeaker containing a 1.4" exit compression driver with pattern control loading provided by a 12" transducer with 90-degree axisymmetric directivity. Its sonic performance and high SPL make the 112P the speaker suitable for high performance multi purpose applications. Due to its compact, wedge-shaped format and axisymmetrical directivity, the 112P provides a high-performance floor monitor solution. When used with L-Acoustics subwoofers, the 112P also is appropriate for side-fill, drum monitoring or medium-power FOH applications. Optimum versatility is extended through the use of practical and functional rigging accessories.
