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 system.
The CORE 82A is a dual 8”,
two way, full range, active line array module. The CORE 82A features a two
channel, 1000W, Class D amplifier that is specifically designed to power its
corresponding passive cabinets, the CORE 82P, but can be used in a full active
line array setup if required or preferred. The CORE 82A also features the
latest digital signal processor and the NUCLEUS FIR loudspeaker management
Though compact in size, the CORE 82A is a full-bandwidth system and may be
used without subwoofers in many applications. Where additional low frequency extension is required, the
CORE 82A can be complemented by and is directly compatible with the CORE8218SA
(Active 18" Subwoofer) and CORE8218SP (Passive 18" Subwoofer).
CORE 82A 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 82A is comprised of two
8" / 2" 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
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
