Portable speakers
A key component of the StudioLive AI's design is its use of Active Integration technology. Active Integration combines wireless and wired networking and communications with powerful DSP to create a unified working environment. StudioLive AI series speakers incorporate Fulcrum Acoustics' TQ Temporal Equalization algorithms. Taking advantage of Active Integration's ample DSP, TQ employs multiple, fully addressable Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters to eliminate horn reflections and to correct linear time and amplitude anomalies in coaxial systems. Collaborating with Fulcrum Acoustics' co-founder Dave Gunness, PreSonus software designers incorporated custom TQ algorithms with dynamics processing, FFT tools, and performance monitoring into the onboard DSP. The result is a PA system with remarkably clear, coherent, studio-quality sound. Each full-range, powered, three-way loudspeaker relies on a custom-designed, CoActual 8" coaxial speaker with a 1.75" titanium compression driver to reproduce the mid and high frequencies. Triamplified, Class D power amplifiers in each model deliver a combined 2,000W of power.
