  • DESCRIPTION

    The FL80A is a two-way powered point source loudspeaker that provides full frequency response and controlled dispersion from an easily manageable enclosure. It is designed for many kinds of foreground sound reinforcement applications requiring high quality sound, repeatable performance, and convenience of operation in an easily portable format.
    The 8” low frequency neodymium driver is matched to a 1” high frequency compression driver with 1” aluminum voice coil, for low weight and good transient response, each of them being driven by individual channels of a powerful Class D+AB amplifier module. The custom-designed HF horn that provide wide and accurate coverage of a typical auditorium
    The FL80A’s symmetrical vented enclosure allows it to adapt to multiple portable and fixed applications, such as front-of-house duties on a speaker stand, or pole mounted on an associated subwoofer or, by using the 42° wedge angle, as a powerful stage monitor.
    The compact and lightweight high-density PP cabinet is provided with a 35mm pole mount, three recessed aluminum handles for easy lifting and handing, and M8 rigging points to allow suspension in fixed installations using optional mounting brackets.
    To extend the system’s low frequency response the FL80A can be complemented by subwoofers from the Axiom SW series such as the SW18A.


    SYSTEM PROCESSING

    The system processing is based on an advanced DSP platform featuring 56bit, double precision processing and high resolution 24bit AD/DA converters for perfect signal integrity and superior sonic performance. Thanks to its massive processing power, the FL DSP is capable of providing the most sophisticated algorithms for speaker processing, including linear phase FIR filters.
    The FL DSP makes it possible to set an optimal TIME ALIGNMENT for the crossover filter resulting in a linear phase response. The correct acoustic filtering has been achieved using the Constant Power Crossover technique that, thanks to a particular phase relation, results in a very smooth transition between LF and HF and an even dispersion in the crossover region.
    The DSP offers the choice of 5 optimized EQ presets to adapt the system to different applications.


    POWER AMPLIFIER

    The FL80A is powered by a CLASS D +AB power amplifier with SMPS.  The innovative technology used for these amplifiers offers top-of-the-range performances, such as a superior sound definition at any audio frequency, very high dynamics even for low level signals, and very low distortion even at maximum power.
    Output power is optimised specifically to the drive units for efficient power transfer, with the low frequency section producing 250 watts while 50 watts is available for the high frequency compression driver. Input and link connections are via balanced 3-pin XLR connectors, and a ground lift switch is provided for hum-free operation. Mains power is connected through a locking Neutrik PowerCON, and a Power Out connector allows mains power to be linked to additional FL120A cabinets.


    MOUNTING AND FIXING

    The FL80A can be wall mounted in permanent installations either vertically or horizontally using the KPTFL8X wall bracket. The wall bracket allows five steps of incremental rotational adjustment to enable the louspeaker to be accurately aimed.
