LR Baggs Synapse Personal PA System
"Introducing The Synapse Personal PA System, the result from nearly four years of our most advanced engineering to date. Developed primarily for the singer songwriter and solo acoustic performer, this revolutionary approach to the portable loudspeaker isn't just visually unique, it will fill a room and impact your audience like no other speaker can. Synapse employs a unique, all-horn speaker design that projects a full 180 degree horizontal waveform at all frequencies, connecting both you and your audience together in the exact same sound. We've also eliminated the disconnect inherent in two way systems with a groundbreaking compression woofer that propagates sound in the same fashion as the high frequency driver, seamlessly blending the two as if they were one cohesive source for uniformity across all frequencies. The combination of compression, the ease and intimacy created by the horns, and the ultra-wide dispersion fills the room with a dynamically rich, natural sound. The electronics feature two channels of all-discrete preamplifiers with independent gain controls, 3-band EQ, and a custom voiced reverb. The 500 watt, Class-D power amplifier is compact and lightweight, with more than enough power to propel the drivers loudly and efficiently. The design of the housing is purely form follows function. The front cover was shaped to present a full 180 degree horizontal waveform in a hemispherical pattern. We then constructed a cabinet that would yield our desired frequency response and SPL, while remaining compact for easy portability. The combination of a high quality, walnut veneer plywood cabinet with a speaker baffle and an interlocking front cover made from high density, structural foam minimizes resonances to preserve fidelity of sound.
