L-Acoustics has announced the launch of Syva, a new format, high power speaker system featuring six medium-frequency and three high-frequency speakers in a sleek J-shaped progressive curvature format. The groundbreaking transducer arrangement, called segment source, produces an H/V 140° x 26° (+5/-21°) directivity pattern that is optimized for exceptional surface coverage and 115 feet (35 meters) of throw.
Syva can be accompanied by the Syva Low high power subwoofer or Syva Sub infra extension to achieve a 142 dB max SPL. Its companion Syva Low enclosure features two K2-grade 12-inch drivers designed to provide low frequency contour and extended bandwidth down to 40 Hz. Similarly, Syva Sub features one KS28-grade 12-inch driver to further extend the bandwidth of the system in the infrasound domain down to 27 Hz. One LA4X amplified controller can drive up to four Syva enclosures.
Syva can be wall- or pole-mounted, as well as flown, or used alone with its baseplate. Alternatively, Syva can be rapidly mounted on top of Syva Low or Syva Sub using the AutoConnect plug-and-play audio and physical link. An RAL color program allows Syva to melt into any architecture.
The Syva system will be demo’d at L-Acoustics’ ISE booth, #7-X220, in Amsterdam. Go see it here.
