Community Professional Loudspeakers announces the debut its latest “groundbreaking” loudspeaker processor, the dSPEC226. “More than just another DSP,” dSPEC is a new approach to configuring, controlling and commissioning sound system installations, from very small to very large. Employing both a high-speed SHARC DSP and a Xilinx Spartan FPGA, dSPEC offers a host of capabilities and a new method of engineered workflow. All dSPEC models feature a 4 Input x 6 Output fixed-chain DSP architecture that includes 2 x 6 native analog I/Os. Various expansion cards are available to provide two additional analog inputs, two AES3 dual-channel digital inputs, or eight CobraNet Inputs and Outputs. Additional expansion cards will become available as new digital audio networking protocols gain market acceptance, reducing the cost-burden for system installations that do not require a full array of I/O options. Intuitive and easy to use, dSPEC eliminates the lengthy learning curve that plagues many loudspeaker processors. Users simply select from a library of Community loudspeakers and dSPEC does the rest, automatically assigning factory recommended lo-pass and hi-pass filters, corrective equalization (including 1024-points of FIR EQ via CONEQ), protective limiters, phase compensation and more. Additionally, dSPEC intelligently configures LF and HF outputs with optimal crossover slopes for bi-amplified loudspeaker models.
