Community Professional Loudspeakers announces the debut of its loudspeaker processor, the dSPEC226.
All dSPEC models feature a 4 Input x 6 Output fixed-chain DSP architecture that includes 2 x 6 native analog I/Os. Various expansion cards are available to provide two additional analog inputs, two AES3 dual-channel digital inputs, or eight CobraNet Inputs and Outputs. Additional expansion cards will become available as new digital audio networking protocols gain market acceptance.
Users select from a library of Community loudspeakers and dSPEC does the rest, automatically assigning factory recommended lo-pass and hi-pass filters, corrective equalization (including 1024-points of FIR EQ via CONEQ), protective limiters, phase compensation and more. Additionally, dSPEC configures LF and HF outputs with crossover slopes for bi-amplified loudspeaker models.
Loudspeakers not manufactured by Community are accommodated by selecting from the palette of processing functions that include various crossover types, protective limiters, and 20 configurable filters on each of the six output channels.
Community says it is the first company to employ CONEQ Acoustic Power corrective algorithms, Real Sound Lab's automated loudspeaker equalization technology. CONEQ provides 1024 bands of FIR equalization designed to flatten the Acoustic Power Response of the selected Community loudspeaker(s).
Other capabilities include an Amplifier Calibration Port that measures the output characteristics of each amplifier in the system to calibrate dSPEC's three stages of limiters (peak, program & long term).
Resyn software can be downloaded for evaluation at no charge from Community's website at www.communitypro.com/dspec.
