Carvin Introduces LSx Series Loudspeakers

Carvin has introduced the new LSx loudspeaker series, which were designed to address a wide range of SR applications — from portable PA systems for mobile DJ’s and performing musicians through large venue sound systems.

Consisting of 17 models, 10 non-powered and 7 powered, the new LSx Series features 18-guage steel grills, recessed steel handles, high order — low loss crossovers, plus Neutrik Speakon and quarter-inch connectors. The LSx Series enclosures are built with 18mm multi-ply hardwood and finished with a multi-layered, catalyzed polyurethane Duratex finish designed to withstand the rigors of the road. Each enclosure is designed, tuned, and ported using LEAP software and measured with LMS software for optimum system performance.
