L-Acoustics introduces the new LA7.16i Amplified Controller. The LA7.16i surmounts the limitations of current high power amplifier configurations used in installation projects. The controller offers an unprecedented 16x16 architecture in a 2U chassis with seamless Milan-AVB redundancy. Each of the 16 output channels delivers up to 1300 watts at 8 ohms or 1100 watts at 4 ohms.

The LA7.16i amplified controller drives both current and future L-Acoustics loudspeakers for more efficient and sustainable installations. It offers flexibility to meet real-time power needs, energy efficiency, and the ability to address multi-channel and hybrid applications, including the L-ISA Ambiance room enhancement software. LA7.16i delivers power more efficiently and uses energy more effectively, ultimately offering a lower cost-per-channel solution and an electronic unit that consumes 30% less energy when idle.

With the new LA7.16i amplified controller, L-Acoustics introduces L-SMART, a suite of advanced power management technologies that allow designers to mix and match any L-Acoustics loudspeaker onto one amplifier. L-SMART uses proprietary predictive modeling algorithms to manage the power supply unit (PSU) and the individual amplification channels. Hardware sensors within the amplifier supply real-time information, which is analyzed by the DSP to dynamically match loudspeaker system needs.

LA7.16i can drive any L-Acoustics speaker up to K2, enabling high-resolution amplification and processing of large-format speakers with less system budget. The innovative combination of high channel density and power capability makes LA7.16i an ideal partner for medium to large permanent installations or immersive audio installations requiring a significant increase in discrete processing and amplification. "The full power of our R&D resources was laser-focused on developing and testing the LA7.16i amplified controller," Germain Simon, Head of Product and Technology Marketing at L-Acoustics. "We've employed automotive-grade components on critical circuits and developed special airflow modeling during testing. Open up an LA7.16i unit, and it will be as sleek and elegant on the inside as it is on the outside."

Engineered for installation applications, LA7.16i features loudspeaker monitoring, protection, and management, GPIOs, terminal block connectors, and a backup 24V DC input which enables the DSP card to continue functioning if mains power is lost. Smart mains current limiting and circuit breaker emulation are also included. LA7.16i supports Milan-AVB seamless network redundancy and is remotely controlled and monitored using LA Network Manager or third-party systems like Q-SYS and Crestron. LA7.16i provides a summation matrix with 16 inputs that can be selected from up to 128 Milan-AVB channels (16 streams of 8 channels each) on EtherCONTM connectors. Milan-AVB seamless redundancy is standard. Additional qualifications are underway to complete Milan certification and to support the AES67 audio network protocol.
