ICON LTS (Long-Throw System) is a digitally controlled, horn-loaded, active PA that sets new standards for performance and digital signal management capability. The primary design brief of the ICON LTS was for usage in ground-stacked configurations at events where conditions or budget constraints prevent you from flying a PA. It combines easy, intuitive operation with true, articulate response and considerable sound pressure. ICON LTS' ability to satisfy the diverse requirements of so many different applications—e.g. top-40 cover bands, open-air concerts in the city, club dates, tents, road shows, and mobile dance events—make the system an excellent choice for rental companies and professional bands. ICON LTS is a self-contained active system engineered to deliver excellent sound. The horn-driven 12"/1.4" IC 112 LA mid-/high unit, with its 60¿¿ x 40¿¿ CD horn design and outstanding directivity, features an onboard digital controller that serves as the stack's control center. Two 18" band-pass subwoofers provide the low-end kick for the full stack. State-of-the-art Class-D power amp technology delivers the reach and range to throw these signals across great distances at remarkable sound pressure levels. The IC 112 LA mid/high unit is driven in biamp mode with a 1,000-watt/4-Ohm amplifier for the midrange and a 600-watt/4-Ohm amp module for the highs. The IC 118 BA subwoofers each have an integrated 2,000-watt/4-Ohm amp module. Maximum SPL of the system is 136dB (peak) in half space. The onboard electronics are based on those of the well-established HK AUDIO DSM 2060 rack controller. PC software allows the operator to monitor the controller's key performance parameters, such as level, power amp temperature, and impedance. An eight-band parametric EQ, a two-band shelving EQ, a high-low pass filter, as well as Gain, Delay, Phase, and Mute controls enable you to tweak settings and adapt the system to suit the venue. ICON LTS will be shipping in September 2009. Demo systems are now available exclusively through HK AUDIO's distribution partners.
