L-Acoustics Launch Syva Segment Source
Brand new loudspeaker format brings L-Acoustics line source heritage to a sleek, plug-and-play system.
At the 2017 ISE trade show in Amsterdam L-Acoustics has announced the launch of Syva, a new format, high power speaker system which features six medium-frequency and three high-frequency speakers in a sleek J-shaped progressive curvature format. This groundbreaking new transducer arrangement called segment source produces an H/V 140° x 26° (+5/-21°) directivity pattern that is optimized for exceptional surface coverage and 35 meters of throw.
Syva is an outstanding choice for corporate events, fashion and trade shows, as well as for sound reinforcement in amphitheaters and performing arts centers. The modern, sleek design will make it an attractive option for houses of worship as well as intimate settings such as home cinemas or lounge bars.
Mark Payne, SFL Technical Director, comments: “L-Acoustics have a well established reputation for innovation at the cutting edge of this industry, consistently releasing products which have redefined pro-audio. With Syva L-Acoustics have once again introduced to us a brand new concept for live audio – the segment source.”
Syva can be accompanied by the Syva Low high power subwoofer or Syva Sub infra extension to achieve 142 dB max SPL. Its companion Syva Low enclosure features two K2-grade 12” drivers designed to provide low frequency contour and extended bandwidth down to 40 Hz. Similarly Syva Sub features one KS28-grade 12” 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. A RAL color program allows Syva to melt into any architecture.
“The introduction of Syva is a landmark for L-Acoustics,” says Stéphane Ecalle, director of marketing at L-Acoustics. “Syva is a new breed of sound system combining the benefits of line source technology with a plug-and-play approach, in a sleek design, tailor-made for places where elegance and discretion are paramount.”
