Eight Channel Amplifier for ALA07C-H loudspeaker.

The Acoustic Technologies FLA8.dsp is an elegantly designed eight channel audio amplifier featuring an extensive and fully integrated Digital Signal Processing system.
The FLA8’s DSP Steering Presets perform the complex processing required to implement a Beam Steered Array System which has been tailored for the Acoustic Technologies ALA07C Series of loudspeaker enclosures.

The FLA8 / ALA07C Beam Steered Array System is specifically designed to meet the complex audio amplification requirements often found in installations such as:

* Houses of Worship
* Courts of Law
* Public Transportation Terminals such as:

    Bus Terminals
    Ship Ways &
    Railway Stations
* Parliamentary Debating Chambers
* Supermarkets & Shopping Centres
* Conference Centres
* Corporate Board Rooms
* Museums & Art Galleries
* Theatre Foyers

Such systems will generally employ multiple amplifiers within the overall system. With this in mind the FLA8 is convection cooled, eliminating the noise, maintenance and reliability issues associated with in-built cooling fans.

In summary: The FLA8 integrated digital system processor amplifier offers superb audio performance with extensive configuration capabilities in a footprint specifically engineered to meet the complex requirements encountered within large scale installations.
