Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW) expands the Adaptive Systems family with the introduction of Anna, a loudspeaker designed for the touring, regional sound and permanent installation markets.
Anna expands Adaptive Performance to mid-sized applications requiring no-compromise sound quality, high output and precise coverage, as well as the ability to readily adapt that coverage to any venue geometry. Its compact footprint and light weight make it ideal for permanent or temporary use in amphitheaters, theaters, clubs, mobile staging and corporate AV.
While it can also function as a stand-alone PA, columns of Anna modules interlock side-by-side with columns of Anya modules – EAW’s large format Adaptive Performance system – for supplemental fill or to horizontally expand Anya-based systems for outfill. Both Anya and Anna pair up with the Otto Adaptive subwoofer to form a cohesive solution for any application.
Each Anna module includes 14 highly customized transducers: eight HF compression drivers provide a continuous line of apertures on a horn that expands to fill the entire face of the enclosure, four 5-inch MF cone transducers combine with Radial Phase Plugs and Concentric Summation Array technology to sum coherently with the HF wavefront, and dual high-power 10-inch LF cone transducers employ Offset Aperture loading to extend horizontal pattern control well into the lower octaves.
Anna enclosures also have 14 built-in amplifier and processing channels providing independent power and control of each loudspeaker component. Resolution 2 software controls the processing of each acoustic cell individually to generate the ideal coverage pattern for the venue while minimizing the impact of the room’s acoustics. The end result is extremely high fidelity, output and coverage control.
Anna modules are sold in groups of 24 or 12 enclosures with power and data distribution, dollies, covers, flybars and cabling included.
