Remember the 266-ound PRO Audio Technology LFC-24sm subwoofer I reported on last month? Suffice to say, in anything less than a football stadium, one of those beasts would be capable of ripping your face right off of your skull, right? So imagine how pumped I am to hear two of them in action at CEDIA EXPO next week. I’m already adding extra roughage to my diet in preparation. That’s not all, though: the company just announced this morning that the same demo will include — for the first time at any trade show — the company’s massive SCR-2115sm three-way screen-channel loudspeaker, as well, which on its own boasts 15-inch, 1400W woofers, and high resolution coaxial compression drivers. Here are the full deets on demo material from the press release:
Content for the CEDIA demo will include a mix of music and movie performances meant to highlight the resolving power, dynamic range and output capabilities of the system. Fleetwood Mac and Michael Jackson will be featured musical artists, and a startling plane crash scene from the movie “Flight of the Phoenix” will put attendees aboard a doomed twin engine plane high above the Mongolian desert. PRO will also show a brief video overview of its proprietary PRO SoundTools audio calibration software that’s integral to PRO amplifier-processors.
“The demand for genuine cinematic and concert experiences in the home is strong, especially with affluent customers,” said Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology founder. “Our CEDIA system will illustrate the technology used in the largest home theaters to achieve those goals. The demo content will balance the smooth, effortless presentation of vocals and instruments with the intense dynamics of live concerts and movie soundtracks. This system will definitely give CEDIA attendees a sense of the unique sound quality possible with PRO products.”
Pro Audio Technology’s SoundTools software will be used for system programming and calibration. Power for the system will be provided by the company’s PMA amplifier-processors, supplying 10,000 watts of total power and DSP-optimized signals to every driver in the system. SoundTools will also be used to apply signal compensation to adjust for perforated video screen high-frequency attenuation.
