L-Acoustics updates XT Coaxial range
22 March 2007
France - The new 8XT and 12XT from L-Acoustics represents "the next generation of single-point-source coaxial loudspeakers" according to the manufacturer. Drawing on two decades of leading edge experience dating back to the MTD coaxial concept in 1987, the new XT systems promise to deliver "the ultimate sonic performance in a compact and versatile multi-tasking package".
Featuring a compact and lightweight design, the 8XT cabinet is the most compact model of the L-Acoustics coaxial range. Operating on a frequency bandwidth of 65Hz to 20kHz, this response can be lowered to 32Hz with the addition of the SB118 subwoofer.
The 8XT contains a 1.5" diaphragm compression driver, coaxially loaded by an 8" low-frequency transducer in a bass-reflex tune enclosure. The internal passive crossover network uses proprietary third-order filters with built-in phase compensation. The linearization and protection of the transducers is defined by the drive parameters contained in the LA4 amplified controller.
Housed in a slightly larger enclosure, the 12XT combined active/passive cabinet is the mid-sized model and features an operating frequency bandwidth of 55Hz to 20kHz and, like the 8XT, this response can be lowered to 32Hz via the use of the SB118 subwoofer.
Due to their flexible design criteria, the XT coaxial loudspeakers meet the highest demands from both the fixed installation and rental production markets, allowing them to be used for front-of-house, fill, or monitor applications, says the company. The 8XT and 12XT coaxial system, as well as the LA4 amplified controller, will be available in May.
