German loudspeaker manufacturer Coda Audio had a very successful Prolight+Sound this year, with interest in its products continuing to filter in from all around Europe. As well as its current range of loudspeaker cabinets, including the CoRAY4 and AIRLINE LA12, Coda exhibited the C3, a new amplification product, as well as revealing its ability to now supply a Polyurea coating for all cabinets upon request.
The C3 is an extremely rugged, 19 inch / 2U high performance, two channel power amplifier. It integrates light-weight power supplies with high power class D amplification and features either USB or network controlled 24 bit 96kHz via powerful SHARC-based DSP.
The C3 has the capability to recall up to four different groups of settings by means of rear panel contact closure inputs, particularly useful for voice evacuation applications where it may be necessary to mute the current audio source, switch to an alternate input carrying the evacuation message and broadcast it with different level and EQ settings. This can be done automatically on each pair of C3 channels, either independently or collectively.
The C3 features C-Net network remote control and is dedicated to managing a wide range of Coda Audio products. Factory presets are included for G-Series, D-Series CUE monitors, LA4 and CoRAY systems and with the four channel C5 unit handling G300-, G500- and G700-Series, D-Series, K-Series, CUE Monitors, LA4 and the new CoRAY4 / CoRAY4i systems, optimal power solutions are now provided for a any fixed installation application.
Coda also hosted an informal meeting on its stand during the show where, as well as highlighting noteworthy new and existing products, it recognised the considerable achievements of its distributors.Article continues below
