PreSonus StudioLive Al Loudspeaker Series PA systems
Studio monitors are designed to accurately reproduce music across a broad spectrum without signal loss or distortion but they can’t handle the SPL demands of a live show. Conventional PA speakers can deliver plenty of volume, but except for very high-end systems, they can’t deliver the extremely clear, accurate sound one expects in a studio. As a result, an affordable PA speaker that delivers studio-monitor quality for live shows has remained an unfulfilled fantasy—until now.
This fantasy has, at last, become reality thanks to a partnership between PreSonus and Fulcrum Acoustic’s legendary engineer David Gunness (formerly of EAW and Electro-Voice). Rather than take the usual brute-force approach to PA-speaker design, the team designed a coaxial loudspeaker that would employ Fulcrum’s unique DSP-based approach.
The result is PreSonus StudioLive™ AI-series Active Integration Loudspeakers, the first affordable, active PA speaker systems that deliver studio-monitor accuracy on stage—exceptionally clear, coherent sound—while supplying the features and protection systems required to mix a live show that sounds great in a wide variety of venues, and with virtually any musical genre. These features include wireless and wired control of all setup, tuning, and monitoring functions, using an iPad® or laptop.
We’re about to dive into the technology that makes all this possible. But we didn’t develop the technology to brag about it. We did it to create a loudspeaker with audio performance far superior to that of conventional speaker systems. We also gave StudioLive AI speakers advanced features that will help you get the best results quickly and easily. But audio quality has always come first.
Before we released our StudioLive AI PA speakers, we mixed a lot of gigs with them to make sure they delivered everything we thought they would. We have never been disappointed, to say the least. To our ears, these speakers provide the best stereo imaging we’ve ever heard in a PA. They get extremely loud but are so clean that they never hurt your ears—even when pushed to the limit. Their three-way design enables them to deliver amazing vocal clarity.
The gain structure of the StudioLive AI loudspeakers was designed to optimize the dynamic range of an entire PA system. Most other powered speakers in this price class aren’t. As a result, some powered speakers seem to get louder more quickly than the StudioLive AI loudspeakers but they actually start to clip well before a professional mixer’s optimum output level has been reached, resulting in reduced dynamic range.
The StudioLive AI series consists of four full-range models and a companion 18-inch subwoofer so you can configure your system for a wide variety of spaces and applications.
