WorxAudio combines Active Integration tech with Dante

AUTHOR: Inavate

WorxAudio Technologies, a division of PreSonus Audio Electronics will offer Dante technology on a number of line array products.

Its TrueLine X2i-P/D, X3i-P/D, and X5i-P/D line array systems and X115i-P/D and X118i-P/D subwoofers will incorporate PreSonus Active Integration technology and PreSonus' SL-Dante-SPK card.

All Active Integration loudspeakers come with a USB Wi-Fi LAN module to connect to SL Room Control software over a wireless network.

SL Room Control is a system-configuration application for Mac OS X, Windows, and iPad that provides both individual and grouped speaker control and includes graphic and parametric EQ, notch filters, compressor, limiter, muting, soloing, and level control, in addition to performance monitoring (over temperature, click detection, and excursions).

A network-setup wizard connects each speaker to the wireless network. Additional editing features are available exclusively to WorxAudio customers, including high- and lowpass filters with customizable filter selection and an eight-band parametric EQ with per-band filter selection.

The SL-Dante-SPK card houses a single Ethercon connection for Dante networking and control, providing audio networking capability without sacrificing remote-control capabilities. The WorxAudio X2i-P/D is a self-powered, two-way, line array loudspeaker system that incorporates two modules, each of which has a medium format, one-inch-exit compression driver.

Compression drivers are paired with dual, 8-inch, cone transducers that provide a rich, balanced sound and a frequency range from 45 Hz to 20 kHz (-10 dB).

Similar to the X2i-P/D, the X3i-P/D is a 3-module, all-in-one, compact system with 160-degrees-horizontal dispersion. The X5i-P/D is a two-way, high efficiency, ultra-compact line array incorporating five modules in a single enclosure for a total of five one-inch-exit, compression high-frequency drivers and ten eight-inch cone transducers for low-frequency reproduction.

The WorxAudio X115i-P/D subwoofer utilizes a single direct radiating, 15-inch, 1,200W cone driver in a vented enclosure. The X118i-P/D utilizes a direct radiating 18-inch, 2,000W cone driver in a tuned enclosure.
