DAScontrol

Logo Action 500

The ACTION-500 active systems incorporate a mixer with 2 inputs. DAScontrol ™ technology with LCD screen allows for the selection of up to 3 different presets (Live, Dance and Monitor) and HPF and LPF filters that optimize the systems when used with subwoofers. The powered systems provide the option of using the logo as a limit indicator.

An unparalleled choice when compact size and weight matter, ACTION-508A is a passive system designed to deliver a highly versatile solution, from fixed installations to the popular portable PA application. And its rotatable horn with 90º x 60º dispersion means the enclosure can be used horizontally in a fixed installation, as a stage monitor or even as front fill. 

As part of our company culture, all our systems are developed under a single philosophy: to deliver the highest possible quality in terms of both materials and overall system design. In the ACTION-500 series we use the same birch plywood as our touring systems for a tight, natural warm sound found nowhere else on the market. The series’ full range of active tops is complete with two balanced XLR inputs for mic and line, an additional 3.5 mm mini jack input, and a powerCON connection. 

The 720 Wpeak Class D amplifier together with a new 8” transducer (8GV) and the MI-34 compression driver (1.5 cm diameter) deliver outstanding efficiency, both in terms of power consumption and audio power (122 dB SPL). The DAScontrol™ interface uses a high-range 24-bit DSP and rear LCD screen to enable the selection of presets, EQ modes, delay, gain control and signal source mix.
