L-Acoustics LA12X amplified controller
incorporates DSP technology and comprehensive system protection in a single ergonomic package.
- 12,000 W with record hold times
- Universal SMPS with Power Factor Correction
- High tolerance to unstable mains (100-240V)
- Boosted DSP resources
- 4 x 4 architecture for passive systems
L-Acoustics LA12X relies on a proprietary switch mode power supply (SMPS) equipped with a DSP-controlled PFC, capable of delivering 12,000 W regardless of mains voltages (from 240 V down to 100 V.) The PFC offers high immunity to unstable mains and lowers typical power consumption by up to 40% for the same usage conditions i.e., more power is available to the output stages from a given circuit (16 A at 230 V mains, 30 A at 120 V mains).
In addition to the high raw RMS power rating, the ability to deliver energy (power x hold time) yields the best performance from loudspeaker systems, especially in LF reproduction.
The four LA12X inputs are available in analogue, AES and AVB. Four cascaded 24-bit and 96 kHz A/D converters at the front-end yield an impressive encoding dynamic of 130 dB. AES/EBU digital inputs operate with sample rate converters from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz. Automatic fallback functions make the creation of redundant audio paths possible with constant delay and constant level.
