The state of the art Class D digital amplifier designed for the CORE series active cabinets sets a new industry benchmark in audio performance, efficiency and flexibility. The class D amplifiers were specifically designed to power not only the active loudspeaker that it is built-into but it is specifically designed to drive its corresponding passive cabinet. This is made possible by integrating a parallel speaker output connector to an extremely powerful, efficient & reliable Class D amplifier. This simple yet innovative concept design can save users up to more than 50% on the upfront cost an active line array system and as a bonus, lowers the total systems overall weight.
The next generation of
compact active line arrays is here. Sound Barrier has been relentless in its
search for a scalable & extraordinarily powerful system with unparalleled
audio quality while maintaining and improving price points without sacrificing
performance. With its intelligent design, state-of-the-art technology, and
versatility, the CORE series is bound to become an audio engineers dream
The CORE 102A is a dual 10”, two way, full range, active line array module. The
CORE 102A features a two channel, 1600W, Class D amplifier that is specifically
designed to power its corresponding passive cabinets, the CORE 102P, but can be
used in a full active line array setup if required or preferred. The CORE 102A
also features the latest digital signal processor and the NUCLEUS FIR
loudspeaker management software.
Though compact in size, the CORE 102A is a full-bandwidth system and may be
used without subwoofers in many applications. Where additional low frequency extension is required, the
CORE 102A can be complemented by and is directly compatible with the CORE 10218SA
(Active 18" Subwoofer) and CORE 10218SP (Passive 18" Subwoofer).
The CORE 102A is a 2-way system
that combines line array principles with innovative horn loading techniques to
produce a very powerful compact line array with impressive dynamic impact. The
low frequency section of the CORE 102A is comprised of two 10" / 2.5"
voice coil Neodymium drivers. The HF section is comprised of one 1.4"
throat, 3" voice coil Neodymium horn elements to produce a low-curvature
vertical wave front with an efficiency of 109dB at 1m for a 1W input. This
optimal HF curvature enables the cabinets enclosures within the array to be
splayed up to 8° without introducing gaps in the HF vertical coverage.
Nucleus FIR is a
loudspeaker management software providing all of the features and flexibility
required to drive and align the CORE series sound reinforcement systems.
Incorporating traditional IIR X-over and parametric EQ functions in conjunction
with revolutionary FIR modes, Nucleus FIR is one of the most flexible, advanced
yet user friendly loudspeaker management software in the world. The NUCLEUS FIR
software and integrated applications transforms the CORE series sound
reinforcement system from an active line array system into a transcendent and
revolutionary piece of audio technology no professional should be without.
