New York, NY (November 3, 2015)—At AES, Eastern Acoustic Works introduced Anna, a loudspeaker intended for mid-sized applications in touring, regional sound and permanent installation.

Adding to the company’s Adaptive Performance line of loudspeakers, the box’s compact footprint and light weight make it intended for use as a stand-alone PA, as well as able to interlock side-by-side with columns of Anya modules—EAW’s large format Adaptive Performance system—for use as supplemental fill or outfill. In turn, both Anya and Anna integrate with the Otto Adaptive subwoofer to form a cohesive, one-family solution for any application.

Each Anna module includes 14 customized transducers: eight HF compression drivers provide a continuous line of apertures on a horn that expands to fill the entire face of the enclosure, four 5-inch MF cone transducers combine with Radial Phase Plugs and Concentric Summation Array technology to sum with the HF wavefront, and dual high-power 10-inch LF cone transducers employ Offset Aperture loading to reportedly extend horizontal pattern control into the lower octaves.

Anna enclosures also have 14 built-in amplifier and processing channels providing independent power and control of each loudspeaker component. Resolution 2 software controls the processing of each acoustic cell individually to generate the coverage pattern for the venue.

Anna modules are sold in groups of 24 or 12 enclosures with power and data distribution, dollies, covers, flybars and cabling included.
