Digital steerable column speaker with Dante®, DSP and beam steering

General Details

AIMLINE ALX 16 Dante – steerable column speaker with Dante®, DSP and beam steering

The ALX series consists of the models ALX 8 and ALX 4. Thanks to the modular plug-in system, each ALX 8 can be automatically cascaded to a length of 480 cm with up to 5 additional ALX8.

Following model types are possible:
ALX 16 (160 cm), ALX 24 (240 cm), ALX 32 (320 cm), ALX 40 (400 cm) and ALX 48 (480 cm)

This results a controlled dispersion range up 90 meters @75Hz. Each individual loudspeaker chassis is powered by it´s own amplifier and DSP channel with a latency of just 1.8 ms. Two analog audio inputs, two AES/EBU, two Dante®  Inputs and Dante® outputs are available. The PAN C software controls all DSP functions like the beam forming (single and multi beam), moving the acoustical center up and down, EQ, delay, limiter etc. in real time. The current status of the power amplifiers, each chassis, operating temperature, in- and output levels are always monitored and displayed. Up to 24 presets can be set via UDP commands with a standard pro media control system. For external control two GPIO ports are available. The 3.1 mm aluminum housing, drawn in one piece is absolutly free of resonances. A well designed front grille, manufactured in a special edging process, offers a maximum of stability and protection.
