As the L-Acoustics V-DOSC line source array altered the trajectory of modern pro audio loudspeaker design in the 1990s, so the company’s unveiling of L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology in 2016 represented an equally seismic shift in the sonic landscape of today’s live events. Extending spatial processing to a wider range of productions and venues, L-Acoustics now rolls out the next generation of its 3D audio processing engine, L-ISA Processor II. The new processor offers users more power, performance and flexibility, and is available in four different output configurations through a one-time, tiered license fee.

Similar to its predecessor, L-ISA Processor II is a hardware solution that provides advanced object-based mixing for the most demanding immersive audio productions. While both units offer control of spatial audio processing and virtual acoustics for up to 96 audio objects based on speaker positioning information and mixing parameters—including pan, width, distance, elevation, and aux send—the new L-ISA Processor II doubles the original unit’s potential output count of 64 up to 128 outputs for greater power and versatility on larger, more complex events.

The dynamic power distribution of 2 x 40 Watt can be delivered thanks to the integrated amplifier. The loudspeaker features a stereo line input and a balanced terminal block connection, allowing a convenient connection to any kind of audio source.

When no input signal is detected, the auto-standby mode reduces power consumption, making the ARES5A Energy Star compliant. A switch at the back of the device permits to enable and disable this audio standby mode when needed.

As with any audio solution they design, AUDAC has attached great importance to the installer convenience of the loudspeaker. The ABS enclosure and mounting bracket that blends aesthetically into the cabinet itself provide an even more sleek and modern look and allows the loudspeaker to be installed close to a wall. Versatile mounting options are possible, this way the loudspeaker can be mounted both horizontally and vertically with an inclination up to 45° on both sides, enabling you to position it in the right direction. Due to the fact that the bracket itself consists of 2 45° corners, installation in corners or even ceiling can easily be achieved. In addition, AUDAC constructed an optional MBK455 angled mounting bracket set, which permits an extra inclination of 90° when needed.
