LD Systems extends its network
The German manufacturer has unveiled a raft of new products
With the IPA series, LD Systems has expanded its growing installation portfolio with a series of DSP-based, four-channel installation power amplifiers. The new IPA412 (120W) and IPA424 (240W) feature integrated transformers on each channel providing 100V/70V tap and low-Z output down to 4Ω. Each model includes a slot for an expansion card, which can be used to control the IPA amplifiers including all DSP parameters, via Ethernet. Integration into larger installation networks is made possible with Dante AoIP connectivity. The DSP section includes PEQ with matched speaker library, dynamics, matrix mixer, priority source selector and delay. With the addition of a Controller Area Network (CAN) bus, the IPA series can also interact with remote units and paging microphones.
The German manufacturer has also created the first member of its IMA series of installation mixing amplifiers. Offering versatile input and output options and multi-stage priority switching, the IMA30 is a 2U model housed in a 9.5-inch chassis. Features include two mic/line inputs with +24VDC phantom selector, two stereo line inputs plus an integrated Bluetooth wireless signal input for connecting music sources and a priority input for emergency paging. Outputs include a powered 30W at 4Ω output in addition to a 70V/100V tap together with bass and treble tone controls. Optimum frequency response is achieved in low impedance applications by virtue of a low-Z/high-Z selector that separates the output signal from the output transformer. The IMA30 can also be used with external amplifiers, subwoofers or music-on-hold systems via the separate aux line output. The IMA30 offers four priority levels for emergency calls, mic/line inputs and connected music sources in addition to a selectable automatic standby mode for Energy Star certification.
The DQOR loudspeaker series is a line of installation loudspeakers created for both indoor and outdoor use. The newly designed two-way systems are available as low-impedance (8Ω) and high-impedance (16Ω) versions with tap switch for variable power output in 70V/100V applications. Available in black or white finishes and in 3-, 5.25- and 8-inch formats, the speakers also incorporate an integrated wall mount plus a convenient slide-and-lock mechanism. The addition of an integrated connection panel allows the speakers to be connected without visible cable paths, while the 27-inch tilt and 45-inch pan mechanism allows exact positioning for precise sound coverage.
The Maui active column speaker system series has evolved with the introduction of a new I1 installation model comprising nine 3-inch woofers and two 1-inch, neodymium, high-frequency drivers together with an integrated 2.5-way crossover and 120W RMS power at 8Ω. The BEM-optimised, high-frequency waveguide provides precise adjustment of the vertical dispersion, ensuring homogeneous dispersion in acoustically challenging environments. For seamless integration into constant-voltage loudspeaker systems, the Maui I1 has an input mode switch with 8Ω/70V/100V options and a power tap selector for high impedance use with 60W, 30W, 15W and 7.5W taps. Available in black or white, flexibility is enhanced with the inclusion of a dedicated U-bracket for flexible wall and ceiling mounting.
