NEXT-proaudio releases LAs118.v3


April 12, 2023

NEXT-proaudio is introducing the LAs118A.v3 (active) and LAs118.v3 (passive). This new version is exactly the same as the previous version with a different internal construction (front-loaded).

The newer version (v3) has been internally re-engineered (from hybrid-horn to front-loaded) to respond more effectively to lower frequencies. The optimised flare of the tunning port reduces air compression and turbulence especially at very high acoustic pressure levels. Although the average sensitivity of the new version of LAs118 is a little lower than the previous version (about -0.4dB) the SPL level in frequencies below 50Hz is on average 2dB higher.

The v3 version will also use the new Power Module DPA2000.v3 with the same features as the previous version with new advantages such as a reduced fan noise with an internal fan, an increased heatsink efficiency due to front panel redesign, a higher humidity immunity due to only internal air flow (no external air source), a USB connection and a higher grade heatsink protection paint.

This new design and the dedicated presets were engineered to be compatible with the previous LAs118 version.
