- Cutting edge loudspeaker amplification, DSP, network
- High-grade 24 bit A/D converters, 130 dB dynamic range
- 32 bit floating point SHARC DSP, 96 kHz sampling rate
- 4 channel high efficiency amplifier section fed by 2 inputs
- LA4: 4X1000W/4 Ohms, LA8 4X1800W/4 Ohms
- Advanced dual IIR/FIR filter algorithms

Firmware update will erase all user data, in particular the presets stored in the amplified controllers. Consequently, before applying any update operation, save personal sessions (or systems) and presets to files using the version of LA NETWORK MANAGER already installed on the computer. These files will be ready to be loaded back after the process is complete.
- Audio available within 9 seconds after power is turned on
|LA4/LA8 PRESET LIBRARIES 3.0
||- Simplified preset structure thanks to the integration of the product-specific parameters into the L-ACOUSTICS parameters, the use of 0dB gain and 0ms delay default values, and the removal of the preset input parameters
- LA4 Presets: [5XT], [KILO], [KIVA_SB15
|At the heart of the L-ACOUSTICS® integrated system approach, the LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers offer high performance loudspeaker amplification, DSP, network control and comprehensive system protection in a single ergonomic package. On-board library presets have been developed for immediate use with a minimum of EQ correction, optimized system resources and a unique sonic signature for all systems, a feature particularly beneficial for complex installations.
Based upon similar platforms, the exceptional and groundbreaking performance level delivered by both the LA4 and LA8 allows for full optimization of all L-ACOUSTICS® system resources and delivers outstanding audio quality combined with the best possible transducer protection. LA Network Manager with its intuitive user interface provides a high level of hands-on system control without sacrificing accurate and fast operation under real-world conditions. For fixed installation, external control of the amplified controllers is possible from AMX® and CRESTRON® panels.
PERMANENT INSTALLATION BENEFITS
New optional extension for LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers, LA-AES3 offers one AES/EBU stereo input and one AES/EBU thru port (link) to interconnect LA4 and LA8 to any digital mixing desk or any audio distribution network, while maintaining a fully digital signal path.
Automatic AES/EBU to analog input fallback:
"The LA4 and LA8 have made my life easier. Firstly, the system set-up is facilitated by their compact and light packaging and so is the audio cabling process. Secondly, the LA-Network Manager software allows remote control on a group of loudspeakers in the same array. This is an undeniable benefit in emergency situations that we often face in the “live” world."
John Moine de Russy
"LA NETWORK MANAGER 1.2 brought many new features. I particularly like the new flexibility with hybrid presets to optimize the number of amplified controllers when I study a sound design"
Old Student House
|"I’m using the LA Network Manager’s Array Morphing tool extensively to compensate for the amount of LF energy caused by the room acoustics. This makes my life much easier as I can decrease the low frequency range in a better way without having to use extra EQ"|
|Paul Van Baasbank
& K System Engineer
|"The LA Network Manager worked very well, I found the FIR filter especially useful in averaging out the high frequency response of the cabinets near the stage compared to the middle and the far end of the room"|
K System Engineer
|"The new Array Morphing really helped me during the tuning phase. I could quickly access and edit the contour of the system even before using any equalisation. This is a time-saver when I need to have identical contours from different complex line source configurations and very useful for covering various audience geometry. I can easily go from my standard system in a big stadium to a slightly adapted contour in the “low-mid” section in a smaller stadium without having to drastically re-EQ my system.”|
Tri Tunggal Abadi
|"The LA8 and LA4 amplified controllers sound really good; the presets make everything easier and we can make any adjustments using the new contour EQ of the amplified Controller"|
Director of Touring
|"The LA Network Manager monitoring/control software is brilliant”|
