Following up on the popularity of its StudioLive 328AI Active Integration Loudspeakers, PreSonus announced two new cabinet versions and companion accessories designed specifically for installation. Available in white and black, StudioLive 328i cabinets are built for flown installations without handles and pole mounts. Internal grille cloth masks the drivers so that they blend seamlessly into their environments. A companion yoke mount is also available, as is an update to PreSonus' SL Room Control speaker-management software that allows the user to turn off the front-panel blue power-status LED.
In all other respects the new StudioLive 328i-W (white) and 328i-B (black) are identical to the StudioLive 328AI. The compact, powered, 3-way loudspeakers rely on a custom-designed, 8-inch coaxial speaker with a 1.75-inch titanium compression driver to reproduce the mid and high frequencies and dual 8-inch ferrite speakers for low-frequency reproduction. Triamplified, Class D power amplifiers deliver a combined 2,000 watts of power.
