L-Acoustics’ new KS28 reference subwoofer and its amplified controller, the LA12X have been unveilied at Prolight+Sound. The new sub offers extended bandwidth down to 25Hz and weighs in at 79kg. All rigging is integrated into the box and it has been designed for versatility and tight impact, from classical music to EDM.
The LA12X amplified controller has 12,000W of power (up to 3300W per channel) and offers an extra 3dB of SPL over the SB28. With up to 3300W per channel, the LA12X is capable of operating from 100 to 240V while offering the highest tolerance to unstable mains. Universal SMPS means you can take it around the globe and not worry about it exploding, while boosted DSP resources with AVB keeps the amp future-ready. The LA12X launch is accompanied by that of the LA-RAK II, an updated touring rack, offering worldwide compatibility in one model.
“The duo of KS28 and LA12X will set a new benchmark. Offering more power and better low end resolution than any similar sized solution out there,” says Florent Bernard, Director of Applications, Touring at L-Acoustics. “We’ve tested the products over the last three months in Europe, the Americas and Asia. The feedback from this pilot program is universally positive, with sound engineers telling us they’ve heard details in their mix that they’d never heard before. We are confident that the KS28 and LA12X will offer amazing new possibilities to rental providers and integrators.”
The new products are available for order immediately and will begin shipping in May.
