L-Acoustics recently announces 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. The ground-breaking
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 amphitheatres and performing arts centres. 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.
Syva can be accompanied by the Syva Low high power subwoofer or Syva Sub infra
extension to achieve a 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 colour
program allows Syva to melt into any architecture.
“The introduction of Syva is a landmark for L-Acoustics,’ says Stephane 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.’
The Syva system will be on display at the L-Acoustics booth #7-X220 at ISE in
Amsterdam from February 7th through 10th and first orders are expected to be
shipped in early June 2017.
