Product Description

The PreSonus StudioLive 328AI 3-Way Powered PA Speaker is the first affordable, active PA speaker that delivers studio-monitor accuracy on stage while supplying the features and protection systems required to mix a live show that sounds great in a wide variety of venues! Break-through features include wireless and wired control of all setup, tuning, and monitoring functions, using an iPad or laptop.

The StudioLive 328AI features an external-subwoofer mode that sets customized high-pass filter thresholds and time-alignment settings so that when it is combined with the PreSonus StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer, they form a true 4-way system.

Three-way coverage with lots of ‘woof.’
The StudioLive 328AI is a 3-way system that features dual 8-inch ferrite woofers and a coaxial 8-inch ferrite midrange speaker and 1.75-inch compression driver. It delivers full-range, high-powered performance, yet is streamlined and compact. These transducers are driven by a hefty 2,000W RMS of quad-amplified, Class D power.

The rear of the 328AI active speaker reveals a combo XLR/TRS line input and an XLR microphone input with an XMAX Class A mic preamp and 12V phantom power, as well as an XLR mix output. In addition to the input mixer, you get speaker level-attenuation control and USB and Ethercon connections.

The lightweight plywood enclosure is pole-mountable and has two ergonomic side handles, interlocking stacking, and M10 fly points. Four operation modes allow the user to choose DSP presets for their application, such as MP3 playback, live performance, or stage monitoring—or create a custom preset using SL Room Control software for Mac, Windows, and iPad.

Coaxial done right with TQ
The StudioLive 328AI powered speaker is based on an all-new coaxial speaker design that combines an 8-inch midrange transducer and a 1.5-inch titanium dome compression driver/wide-dispersion horn. The transducers are custom-designed, and each speaker has more onboard processing power than three rack-mount speaker processors!

This powerful DSP enables the use of Fulcrum Acoustic’s high-end TQ Temporal Equalization algorithms, resulting in a coaxial speaker system with exceptional clarity and coherence. The processor is used to manage horn reflection, linear time and amplitude anomalies correction, performance contouring, and dynamic and excursion limiting.

The onboard DSP also makes possible an extensive set of control features for customizing and optimizing the system and for monitoring and fine-tuning performance in real time. The StudioLive 328AI speaker incorporates a 31-band graphic EQ, 8-band fully parametric EQ, limiter, variable high-pass filter, and output delay, as well as complete remote control over output level and performance monitoring.

The future is Active Integration
Products that sense each other, interact and work together via wireless and wired communication, feature 32-bit floating-point DSP and seamlessly integrated software, and run on CPUs far more powerful than competitors’ current audio products—PreSonus has realized this dream with its new Active Integration technology.

Active Integration incorporates communications, wireless networking, and huge amounts of DSP into a specialized, custom chip. Essentially, PreSonus has put a computer into these speakers, with enough processing power to handle not only the specialized TQ algorithms for tuning the coaxial system to near-perfection but also providing extensive remote control over system performance, EQ, and much more.

You’re in control—here, there, and everywhere
Every Active Integration product, including the StudioLive 328AI speaker, includes both wired and wireless communications. The included USB Wi-Fi LAN adapter enables wireless networking. Wired communications are provided via an installed option card with an Ethercon port that connects to your Ethernet-based LAN network.

The master control center resides in SL Room Control, a rich, easy-to-use, system-configuration software application for Mac, Windows, and iPad that offers individual or group control of all PreSonus StudioLive AI-series speakers on the network. SL Room Control gives you control over most onboard controls and lets you monitor key performance indicators.

With SL Room Control, you can full configure, tune, and monitor networked StudioLive AI PA speakers from anywhere in the venue on a laptop or iPad!

The divine interface
Active Integration doesn’t stop at remote control. Swap out your StudioLive loudspeaker’s Ethercon control card for the StudioLive Dante upgrade, and you can ditch those analog cables.
