Ambisonic Outdoor-Rated Wireless Amp with AirPlay Doubles as WAP

Launching at CEDIA 2018, Ambisonic's L-240 All-Weather Wi-Fi Bluetooth amplifier eliminates the need to run wires from an amp (240 watts RMS) to outdoor wireless speakers.

The Ambisonic L-240 All-Weather Wi-Fi amplifier will make its market debut at the upcoming CEDIA Expo 2018 in San Diego (in booth #3055). 

The IP65-rated outdoor audio solution features wireless network and Bluetooth connectivity, enabling integrators to install outdoor audio zones without having to run wires, which saves their clients the time and added expense of burying speaker cables. 

"The enduring issue of outdoor audio has always been, 'Where do we put the amplifier,'" notes Jeff Coombs, president and founder of AmbiSonic Systems

"Ambisonic's L-240 All-Weather Wi-Fi Bluetooth amplifier solves this problem," he says. "No more running speaker wires from the house, and no issues with transmitting a wireless signal from the house. With sparkling fidelity, wireless LAN, and line-level inputs, the L-240 is a game changer. It's the perfect solution."

Ambisonic Amp Pairs Well With New Sub

In addition to the L-240's Wi-Fi and Bluetooth options, the amp also incorporates Apple AirPlay functionality to make it easier for Apple's popular line of smart devices and computers to connect to the system. 

The L-240 can serve integrators as a wireless access point (WAP) to extend wireless network connectivity, outputs 240 watts RMS, and is stable down to 2 ohms to support its use with just about any loudspeaker to drive any two-channel stereo outdoor audio system.

Also on display at Ambisonic's booth will be the S28BP-AW subwoofer. This newly launched sub utilizes a dual 8-inch woofer array and is designed to complement the L-240 All-Weather Wi-Fi and Bluetooth amplifier. 

Ambisonic explains the S28BP-AW subwoofer omits the need for an internal or external crossover network. Developed to complement the company's 6.5HD loudspeakers, the sub is powered by the L-240 amplifier and employs an "efficient design that produces tight bass with high levels of output" to enable integrators to create stand-alone 2.1 outdoor audio systems without sacrificing fidelity.
