NAMM 2017: LD Systems to debut new speaker offerings

LD Systems will present a number of new products at The NAMM Show 2017, including the next generation of its compact, active two-column systems: The MAUI 11 G2 and MAUI 28 G2.

The performance of both PA systems has been improved with considerably reduced weight and new features such as a separate column for the MAUI 11 G2, and optimised sound for both systems.

Also on display at the show are the vocal and instrument sets from the new LD Systems U500 Wireless Series, which are available in three radio frequency bands: 584 – 608 MHz and 655 – 679 MHz, in both of which twelve systems can be operated simultaneously. In the 823 – 832 MHz and 863 – 865 MHz ranges, six systems can be operated simultaneously. The company will also launch its new Stinger G3 Series in Anaheim with a planned release in February.

Additionally, the company will demonstrate its new CURV 500 iAMP for the CURV 500 portable array system, which features four channels with DSP control and Class D technology. Other specifications of this 19in 1U rack power amplifier include its wide frequency response of 10 Hz to 22 kHz, as well as its 4x 240-watt RMS outputs (@4 ohms).

Meanwhile, the new CURV 500 iSUB is an accompanying compact bass reflex subwoofer with a 10-inch driver and low installation depth, which has also been developed for installation of CURV 500 sound systems. Its frequency range of 47 to 150 Hz ensures a tight, dynamic bass response with punch and definition; the maximum load is 200 watts RMS.
