Rather than take the usual approach to speaker design, PreSonus teamed up with legendary Fulcrum Acoustic engineer David Gunness to design a coaxial loudspeaker that would emply Fulcrum's unique DSP-based approach.
The result is the PreSonus StudioLive Active Integration loudspeakers, the first affordable active PA speaker system that delivers studio-monitor accuracy on stage. Providing exceptionally clear, coherent sound while supplying the features and protection systems required to mix a live show that sounds great in a wide variety of venues and with virtually any muscial genre.
The StudioLive 312AI is PreSonus' smallest full-range PA speaker, a great choice for venue owners and bands who need a compact PA with the full range sound and power of a large system and the ability to tighten the range for better sonic performance at louder volumes.
A compact, powered, full-range 3-way loudspeaker, StudioLive312 AI relies on a 12" ferrite woofer for low frequencies and a custom-designed 8-inch coaxial speaker with 1.75" titanium compression driver to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. The transducers are driven by a hefty 2000W RMS of triamplified, Class D power.
Active Integration Technology realises the dream of products that sense each other, interact and work together via both wired and wireless communication, featuring 32-bit floating point DSPs and seamlessly integrated software.
Active Integration incorporates all of this into a specialised custom chip that can handle not only the specialised algorithms for tuning the system to near-perfection, but also providing extensive remote control over system performance, the variable low-pass filter and more.
Wirelessly control output level, user-adjustable contours and more using the 32-bit floating point DSP for the variable crossover, dynamic limiting and excursion limiting.
The included USB Wi-Fi LAN adapter enables wireless networking, with the master control centre residing in the SL Control Room: a feature-rich, easy to use system-configuration software application for Mac, Windows and iPad that offers individual or group control of all StudioLive AI-Series speakers on the network. SL Room Control gives you control over most onboard controls and lets you monitor key performance indicators.
