LD Systems introduces MAUI G3 MIX models with integrated mixer

LD Systems is expanding its MAUI G3 series with the MAUI 11 G3 MIX and MAUI 28 G3 MIX models, further extending the application possibilities of the system with an integrated digital six-channel mixer, professional effects and wireless remote control via smartphone or tablet.

The system is designed as an all-in-one solution for artists who don't want to bring a separate mixing console to their live gigs.

The MAUI G3 MIX series combines all components for flexible live use: mixing console, effects, dynamics processing, DSP controller, power amplifiers and speakers. The integrated digital six-channel mixer offers four XLR/line combo inputs for connecting microphones, line devices or high-impedance instruments (Hi-Z available on channels 1 and 2), supplemented by a stereo Bluetooth connection on channels 5 + 6.

In addition to the System Out for connecting an additional subwoofer or other equipment, two Monitor outputs are available for connecting up to two monitors and supplying each monitor with its own mix. Two MAUI G3 MIX can be connected via the SysLink connection to double the number of channels. The variety of connections is rounded off by a footswitch input for hands-free effects control.

The mixer settings can be adjusted manually via the control element on the rear of the subwoofer, as well as fully remote-controlled. For this purpose, LD Systems offers a free app (iOS/Android) for smartphones and tablets, which provides full access to the mixer channels, monitor channels and the comprehensive effects section with reverb, delay and dynamics tools. A parametric five-band EQ is also available. Depending on requirements, the complete app control of the mixer can be operated in Easy or Expert mode.

The MAUI 28 G3 MIX is based on a 12'' subwoofers with 2,060 W (peak) and two aluminium column elements with 12 3.5'' midrange drivers, which are designed as cardioid loudspeakers and enable controlled sound dispersion. The MAUI 11 G3 MIX uses two 8'' subwoofers with 1,460 W (peak) and six 3.5'' midrange drivers. Both models feature phase plugs in front of the midrange drivers which, in combination with the two 1'' tweeters, are designed to ensure even sound distribution with constant horizontal dispersion (120° x 30°).

Equipped with the latest DynX DSP generation, the subwoofers are designed to offer extended and distortion-free reproduction even at maximum volume down to 37 Hz (MAUI 28 G3 MIX) or 39 Hz (MAUI 11 G3 MIX). When using a second subwoofer, the bass range can be operated in cardioid configuration using a preset. Meanwhile, Bluetooth 5.0 makes the MAUI G3 MIX a versatile sound system for wireless playback of background music and other content.

Visitors to the Adam Hall Group stand (Level 2, ACC North, #17102) at the NAMM Show this week can experience the MAUI G3 MIX series in sound demos. The models will be available from April 2024.
