New L-Acoustics 8XTi and 12 XTi coaxial loudspeakers are primarily engineered for the fixed installation market.
Taking on the electro-acoustic design of the established XT series, the 8XTi and 12XTi feature a streamlined cabinetry and discrete rigging which can be color-matched according to architect specifications.
The XTi Series can be acoustically and mechanically modeled using the proprietary SOUNDVISION 3D simulation software or with the EASE/CATT data for acoustic design consultants.
The XTi Series bring cost-effectiveness and flexibility for installation projects thanks to a rationalized production and the implementation of the hybrid and flat presets in the new LA-Network Manager 1.2.
The XTi Series point-source technology is suited to distributed applications in semi-reverberant spaces where a single reflected source offers a more coherent radiation field with less reflected virtual sources than a dual horn-woofer combination.
Point-source systems are also adapted to proximity applications such as stage monitoring, front-fills and under-balcony fills. The result is natural, studio monitor sound quality and the aural sensation of transparent sound.
The 8XTi and 12 XTi are available as plug and play solutions with LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers. These come with a complete set of dedicated preset libraries, providing the sound designer with total creative freedom for any conceivable application in theatres, clubs, concert halls, broadcast and multipurpose facilities for FOH, fill and monitor modes.
The integrated package offers contractors a high amplifier density, high efficiency for lower power consumption and less heat, and a fast and easy set-up.
Additionally, the LA4/8 makes the design of complex and sophisticated control systems possible with the integration of an Ethernet-based network capability which allows for the simultaneous networking of up to 253 units.
The L-Acoustics LA Network Manager software offers real-time remote control and monitoring of the amplified controllers via a user-friendly and intuitive graphic interface.
The new XTi Series will ship in December, 2009.
