The CLA 208SA is a professional-grade active subwoofer designed for live performance applications. It features two 8-inch drivers in a bass-reflex design, housed in a sturdy birch ply enclosure. The subwoofer incorporates a Class D amplifier with a power output of 600W, a switch-mode power supply, and a DSP processor with filtering functions, equalization, and speaker protection.
One of the main purposes of the CLA 208SA is to extend the low-frequency performance of the CLA 604A column speaker in live sound setups. The subwoofer can be mounted in front of the column speaker or placed on an optional stand using the M20 socket on top of the sub. The modular design of the CLA 208SA allows multiple units to be stacked together, enabling an increase in maximum sound pressure level (SPL).
The CLA system, which includes the CLA 208SA subwoofer, offers several notable features:
High-level sound quality: The system is engineered to deliver high-quality sound reproduction specifically tailored for live performances, covering a frequency range from 50Hz to 20kHz.
Long-distance sound projection and improved SPL distribution: The design of the system ensures that sound can be projected over long distances while maintaining a balanced sound distribution towards the audience.
Tri-amplification system: The subwoofer and satellite speakers are driven by separate amplifiers, allowing for precise control and optimal power performance.
Lightweight and portable: Despite its powerful performance, the CLA system is designed to be lightweight and easy to carry, facilitating transportation and setup.
Integration and aesthetics: The system is designed with an emphasis on integration into various installations, featuring an elegant design that can blend seamlessly into different environments.
Compact dimensions: The relatively small size of the speakers enables the listener to focus on the sound rather than being distracted by large speaker enclosures.
High horizontal dispersion: The system offers wide horizontal dispersion, ensuring that sound is evenly distributed across a wide area.
To maintain a clean aesthetic and keep cables out of sight, the CLA system incorporates an internal XLR signal link system and Neutrik Powercon power connectors on both the subwoofer and satellite speakers.
Overall, the CLA 208SA and the accompanying CLA system provide professional-grade sound reinforcement with high-quality audio reproduction, flexible configuration options, and an emphasis on ease of use and aesthetics.
