Pristine Power, Patented Elegance

Archipel is a range of sound solutions from conventional stereo to atmospheric surround built upon Syva loudspeaker technology. Purposefully crafted to be both heard and seen, available in black, white, or over a thousand RAL matched colors, there is no question that Syva is sculpturally striking. The sleek lines of Syva house exceptional innovation: in essence, a masterful miniaturization of the gigantic line arrays that can be spotted at the most iconic concerts and music festivals around the globe.

Powered by Syva

Gazing the length of Syva, one is tempted to draw comparisons to conventional hi-fi column loudspeakers. But don’t allow looks to deceive you. Syva’s beauty resonates from within thanks to six 5” mid-frequency drivers and three 1.75” high frequency compression drivers on a concert-quality DOSC waveguide, mounted in a progressive J-shape.

The cabinet exterior combines the remarkable acoustic properties of birch and beech woods to deliver the renowned L‑Acoustics sonic signature. This ensemble achieves wide coverage and packs the power and intelligibility previously only attainable in the professional audio events sector.

Amplified Controllers

Our amplified controllers offer high performance and efficient loudspeaker amplification, signal processing, power management and system protection in a one convenient package. For ease of operation and user-friendliness, L‑Acoustics Network Manager control software integrates seamlessly with leading third party touchscreens and interfaces.

Stereo 2.0

Imagine a lounge or VIP area stereo configuration that packs the same award-winning technical prowess normally reserved for professional concert sound settings. The L‑Acoustics 2.0 system comprises two Syva colinear line sources mounted atop their low frequency extensions, Syva Low.

Syva and Syva Low feature professional grade transducers and state-of-the-art waveguides, delivering ultimate power and precision. This 4,000 watt system can fill your entertainment room with the extremely high levels of detail and dynamics characteristic of live music: from the tiniest whisper to massive orchestral fortissimi.

5.1 Multidimensional Impact

5.1 is the established standard for home theater, broadcast, and cinema surround sound. Compared to classic stereo, our 5.1 solution allows the spectator to experience greater realism and excitement. The front channels—left, center, and right—feature three Syva colinear sources with Syva Low extensions to provide crisp, clean dialogue, and accurate placement of onscreen sounds. The left surround and right surround channels feature a pair of X8 point source speakers.

Their smooth radiation characteristics are created by the coaxial mounting of the high frequency and low frequency drivers, and contribute to the sense of being right there in the throng of the action. Deep, powerful bass effects that can be felt as well as heard are handled by four Syva Sub enclosures in stacked pairs. The amplification power rating of the complete system attains 12,000 watts.

9.1.4 Atmospheric Envelopment

A motion picture soundtrack flows with potency and purpose to completely immerse the spectator in the story, heightening the impact of the action to create a powerfully moving cinema experience. An atmospheric soundtrack mix brings the onscreen action to life as never before. This technology allows filmmakers and sound designers to create an all-enveloping, 3D sound experience by directing specific sounds to certain areas in the room with a high degree of accuracy.

The 9.1.4 L‑Acoustics system setup comprises three Syva colinear sources paired with Syva Low extensions for onscreen sounds, and Syva Sub for infrasonic reproduction. Left and right wide speakers, side and rear surrounds are covered by X8 with overhead sources handled by 5XT enclosures. This configuration produces a phenomenal 20,000 watt output, while matching the stringent sound pressure, frequency response, and coverage requirements defined by the atmospheric format standards.
