OVERVIEW

Premium line array speaker that's designed and built by hand in the U.S.A.

Despite its small size, the LA88 powered line array speaker is capable of extremely high SPL, richness and clarity. Powered by 3,000W of continuous Class-D amplification, the LA88's dual 8" drivers deliver outstanding bass performance and the voice and character of a much larger enclosure.

BASSBOSS was born out of a passion for ultra-deep low end, and a belief that tight, clean, accurate bass is the foundation of great sound. Each BASSBOSS product is a mindfully engineered, painstakingly tuned, completely integrated audio system, intended to seamlessly pair with other BASSBOSS products. BASSBOSS products are designed, built and hand-assembled in Austin, Texas, using only premium components. Like its siblings in the BASSBOSS lineup, the LA88 line array powered speaker is optimized for full-power usage. That is to say, it's intended to be pushed hard and abused, gig after gig. So, don't hold back—crank it up.

The LA88's ultra-wide 140° horizontal dispersion helps provide consistent, intelligible coverage to audience areas that are to the far left and right of the hangs, filling the center and outer areas extraordinarily well. Using a narrow aperture wave-guide and then rapidly transitioning the output to a flat fascia accomplishes this extremely wide coverage. To further enhance off-axis performance, the entire high frequency wave-guide assembly and fascia is mounted forward of the loudspeaker baffle. This minimizes edge reflections and delivers consistent and extended horizontal dispersion.

In order to improve low-frequency performance, the LA88's two 8″ woofers are rear-loaded into a vented enclosure for low frequency performance. They are also front-loaded into a multi-aperture wave-guide that increases mid-range sensitivity, distributes mid-range energy evenly over the height of the cabinet while reducing the acoustical source spacing to enhance coupling and projection of mid-range frequencies, and also broadens horizontal dispersion. 

Fixed-Point Flyware ensures absolutely consistent box-to-box alignment. The high-frequency device spacing remains the same within the boxes and from between boxes because the cabinets are machined to allow the wave guides to exit within 1/4″ of the cabinet edge. To maintain this precision vertical alignment, the front connections of the Flyware are hinged at a single point, which allows no front-to-back slack, so the physical alignment in the direction that influences the time domain also remains consistent from box to box.

BASSBOSS cabinets are CNC machined and hand-built in the USA. Constructed from 15mm Baltic Birch plywood, using dado joints, screws and advanced composite adhesives.
Created to stand up to intense use. The cabinet is finished in an extremely rugged, black polyurethane coating. Rolling ground-support carts, heavy duty padded covers and road-cases are available to make transporting the arrays easy and safe.

BASSBOSS' decision to create a 3000W small-format line-array was based on practicality and logic. A highly amplified, small, lightweight and versatile cabinet that can array in multiples for outstanding performance is the best way to take advantage of all the benefits of line-array technology. Longer lines offer better vertical directivity. Multiple smaller line segments provide superior and more detailed control of vertical coverage. Therefore, for the same weight, a larger quantity of small, powerful boxes offers better performance, coverage and control than fewer, bigger boxes.

The LA88's cones are waterproofed to protect them from accidental exposure to moisture such as rain or spilled beverages. Waterproofed woofer cones also permit the cleaning of drivers that have been soiled in a dirty or dusty environment with the use of a damp cloth.
