This is the brand new PA system from L.R. Baggs, the Synapse.
After decades of consistently raising the bar in acoustic amplification with pickups and electronics, LR Baggs now complete the chain. Introducing The Synapse – Personal PA System, the result of nearly four years of advanced engineering. Developed primarily for the singer songwriter and solo acoustic performer, this revolutionary approach to the portable loudspeaker isn’t just visually unique, it will fill a room and impact your audience like no other speaker can.
Every aspect of this beautiful PA has been painstakingly refined and tested.
A radical departure from conventional loudspeakers and portable line array systems, the Synapse employs a unique, all-horn speaker design that projects a full 180 degree horizontal waveform at all frequencies, connecting both you and your audience together in the exact same sound. They've also eliminated the disconnect inherent in two way systems with a groundbreaking compression woofer that propagates sound in the same fashion as the high frequency driver, seamlessly blending the two as if they were one cohesive source for uniformity across all frequencies. The combination of compression, the ease and intimacy created by the horns, and the ultra-wide dispersion fills the room with a dynamically rich, natural sound.
The electronics feature two channels of all-discrete preamplifiers with independent gain controls, 3-band EQ, and a custom voiced reverb. The circuit is composed of carefully selected, top-shelf components chosen to retain the purity of the signal and deliver studio quality sound for live performance.
The 500 watt, Class-D power amplifier is compact and lightweight, with more than enough power to propel the drivers loudly and efficiently. After an in-depth blind audition of more than a dozen amplifier modules, Baggs unanimously fell in love with this power amplifier and then went even further by working with the manufacturer to tailor it for their purposes.
The design of the housing is purely “form follows function”. The front cover was shaped to present a full 180 degree horizontal waveform in a hemispherical pattern. They then constructed a cabinet that would yield the desired frequency response and SPL, while remaining compact for easy portability. The combination of a high quality, walnut veneer plywood cabinet with a speaker baffle and an interlocking front cover made from high density, structural foam minimizes resonances to preserve fidelity of sound.
An incredible sounding PA for the personal performer or duo.
