StudioLive. Active coaxial PA systems with the accuracy of huge studio monitors but driven with irresponsibly high power, plus sophisticated networking and iPad control. Your live mixes never sounded this good!
Coaxial designs offer the advantages of a single point source for a consistent acoustic center and a symmetrical dispersion pattern. But designing coaxial systems without acoustic anomalies has been extremely expensive-until now.
Each StudioLive AI-series loudspeaker contains a DSP chip that enables the use of Fulcrum Acoustic's TQ algorithms. The result is speakers that deliver the full benefits of coaxial design.
Products that sense each other, interact and work together via wireless and wired communication, are seamlessly integrated with software, and run on CPUs far more powerful than competitors' current audio products-PreSonus® has realized this dream with its new Active Integration technology.
The StudioLive AI series consists of four full-range models and a companion 18-inch subwoofer so you can configure your system for a wide variety of spaces and applications.
When used with a StudioLive 312AI, 315AI, or 328AI, the StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer forms a true four-way system. But the StudioLive 18sAI is flexible enough to work great with other powered loudspeakers, too!
With free PreSonus SL Room Control software, you can configure, tune, and monitor networked StudioLive AI loudspeakers from anywhere in the venue. You can even visually display the room layout on a laptop or iPad!
Active Integration doesn't stop at remote control. Swap out your StudioLive loudspeaker's Ethercon control card for the StudioLive Dante upgrade, and you can ditch those analog cables.
