DAS Audio scales from LARA to SARA

DAS Audio has expanded its flagship ARA series with the addition of the SARA ultra-compact line array system. Capable of delivering a linear performance of 138dB maximum SPL and wide dynamic range, SARA is suited towards medium-sized installations and events.

SARA’s symmetrical design incorporates two customised 8-inch loudspeakers for mid and low frequencies and a compression driver coupled to a 100° horizontal dispersion waveguide for the high frequencies. The internal Class-D four-channel amplifier provides 3000W RMS of power. Two channels are used in bridge mode to power the compression driver, and the remaining two are used to power the 8-inch woofers. The three-point captive rigging system can be used for both SARA and SARA-SUB, which can accommodate arrays with 24 SARA and 16 SARA-SUB flown units. Significantly reducing assembly time, the Fast Set Splay (FSS) system allows angles to be adjusted in 1° steps from the stacked position.

In addition to SARA’s features, the ARA series includes a four-band HOS, atmospheric correction, 1,024 taps for DASaim (FIR filters), and a delay of 280m or 823ms per cabinet. The NFC technology used for self-positioning the systems within an array can be configured within the ALMA software and an internal microphone checks the status of all the components. Weighing 34kg and housed in birch plywood, the SARA 100 module justifies its compact criteria with 265mm x 655mm x 515mm dimensions.

Complementing the SARA line array, the SARA-SUB enhances the low-frequency response down to 35Hz (-10dB). The subwoofer integrates 18-inch and 15-inch neodymium transducers with 4- and 3-inch voice coils respectively. Fixed in a cardioid configuration to reduce rearward radiation and to focus bass energy on the audience leads up to 14dB reduction in the rear dispersion. The SARA-SUB’s built-in Class-D amplifier has four channels in bridge mode for each of the speakers and includes a switch-mode power supply.

ARA’s hardware features and ALMA’s software tools combine to offer control and customisation of sound reinforcement systems. With IP communication, the ARA system can be monitored and EQ settings can be configured in real time. Sharing the same tonal balance, coverage, phase and frequency response as LARA, SARA can accompany LARA for delays, side fills and front fills in a venue.
