Yorkville PSA1W Active Loudspeaker

PSA1W Also comes in WHITE (instead of black)

Yorkville Sound’s Paraline Series active full range loudspeaker system delivers the clarity and precision of a complex line array system in a compact, user friendly format. Innovative cabinet design uses Yorkville Sound’s proven Paraline high frequency lens technology pioneered in our flagship VTC Elevation Series line array cabinets. Two BMS 1.75-inch compression drivers mounted to the patented Paraline lens delivers a focused 15-degree vertical dispersion and wide 110 degree horizontal coverage. Four high quality 18 Sound 6-inch woofers provide a tight and ultra responsive low frequency program.

PSA1 Paraline Lens Technology

The heart of the PSA1W design is the high frequency Para-Line lens. Invented by Tom Danley, this patented technology transforms a point source into a uni-phase plane wave, allowing multiple high frequency drivers to sum coherently in the vertical plane without self-interference. This innovative design provides an effective impedance transformation while at the same time adjusting the path length in a continuously variable way creating a dispersion pattern with the same characteristics as that of a much deeper conventional horn. Paraline Element The Paraline Lens eliminates the impractical depth needed to make a conventional horn that would sum into a non-interfering source needed for multiple cabinet arrays. In the case of the PSA1, a vertical dispersion pattern of 15° is achieved with a Paraline lens less than one inch deep, where a conventional horn design would need to be several metres in length.

Innovative Multiple Woofer Configuration

Four 6-inch high power woofers mounted on the “V” shaped front baffle /horn utilize the entire front surface area of the cabinet to increase loading on the drivers and control pattern coverage at lower frequencies. This unique four woofer design increases power handling while reducing power compression by spreading the work load out over four long excursion voice coils and heat sinks (magnets).

Designed for Live Sound in the Real World

Rugged injection molded ABS cabinet and Neodymium magnet woofers minimize overall cabinet weight making a full system transport and set-up can easily be handled with a single operator. Designed to deliver maximum performance with minimum complication, the PSA1W’s integrated power amplifiers and internal DSP mean no external processing is required. Direct connect to mixer source and set system levels, and the system is ready for the show. Highly efficient amplifier design means each PSA1W draws less than 3 amps in typical operation meaning up to four cabinets can operate safely on a standard 15 amp service. This allows efficient set up using AC loop thru connections on the PSA1W while avoiding nuisance tripping of mains breakers. This also minimizes the need for multiple extension cables or access to multiple house circuits often needed for an active PA setup. Ideal for mobile PA applications in venues where access to complex trussing or roof hangs isn’t practical, the Yorkville PSA1W cabinet mounts quickly and securely on a typical speaker stand. Innovative dual position stand mount offers two potential cabinet angles for expanded setup options. Up to two PSA1W cabinets can be stacked safely and securely on a single traditional stand.

Optional PSA1W Installation Hardware

Yorkville Paraline Series PSA1W cabinets can be flown in any installation quickly, securely and very cost effectively with the addition of optional flying hardware (PSA1WRIGKIT) and a proprietary bumper (PSA1WFRAME). The PSA1RIGKIT installs directly to the PSA1W without modification to the cabinet using mounting points integrated in the all-metal aluminum cabinet handles. A maximum of four PSA1W cabinets can be arrayed safely using PSA1WRIGKIT assemblies. The entire array can then be safely flown using a single PSA1WFRAME bumper. Four Cabinet PSA1W Array using Optional Installation Hardware Assembly The PSA1WFRAME bumper has several flying points to angle the array in simple two-point hangs. The efficient design allows the PSA1W cabinets to be rigged with the frame kit in the field with a minimum of time and effort. The hardware maintains fixed cabinet to cabinet splay angles for seamless vertical coverage. The Modular PSA1W system can be configured for optimum coverage in most installations quickly and effectively without complicated hardware, or additional external signal processing making it the most cost effective installation solution delivering the performance of a compact vertical array. A system comprised of two PSA1W cabinets delivers 30°V x 110°H coverage using two PSA1WRIGKITs and one PSA1WFRAME. A three cabinet 45°V x 110°H array can be created with the addition of one PSA1W and one additional PSA1WRIGKIT. A maximum of four cabinets can be configured for specialized installs where a 60°V x 110°H array may be required.

Optional PSA1 Grille Foam Kit

An optional user installable mesh kit that effectively hides the internal drivers and horn assembly of the PSA1W is available. Ideal for installations and applications where a more subtle cabinet appearance is required, the acoustically transparent grille material (PSA1WFOAM) can quickly be retrofitted to any PSA1W with the quick removal of four hex bolts on the front of the cabinet and attaching the PSA1FOAM kit using a high quality adhesive* to the existing all-metal PSA1W grille.

*Note: Adhesive not supplied – we suggest using a high quality spray adhesive like 3M™ Super 77™
