TYPE
Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers
Community recommends our series of Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers (ALC) for all Community loudspeaker applications. ALCs provide all of the signal routing, zone switching, DSP processing, protective limiting, remote monitoring, and amplification functions needed between a mixer and the loudspeakers in virtually any Community Professional Loudspeakers application. Standard Ethernet communication protocols allow for fast system design, system control, and remote system monitoring. Analog and Dante® inputs are included in each model, for quick and easy integration into any new or existing system. Community-authored loudspeaker presets include equalization, high pass filters, and multi-stage limiters tailored to each model, ensuring consistent sound quality and full loudspeaker protection in every application. 
 
In-depth control and monitoring is accomplished via ArmonìaPlus System Manager Software.  Tailoring the sound and managing the system can be done at a remote, decentralized location.  The ALC-1604D can also be trusted in mission critical applications, such as fire alarm systems, thanks to the cleverly engineered power supply that allows reliable operation even when connected to a UPS in addition to the per-channel, user-assignable fault-indicating GPIO connectors on the rear panel.
EFFORTLESS INSTALLATION
Compact size
– 4 channels x
1 RU for reduced rack cost and space
saving
Industry
-leading integrated DSP reduces need for
external outboard equipment, drastically reducing installation costs
Lowest thermal dissipation ratings
in the industry, reducing the need for external cooling devices
Direct drive either low impedance loads or 70V / 100V Hi
-Z distributed lines
Lightweight
- for easier racking and shipping: 7
.8 kg (
17.3
lbs)
Seamless integration into any networking environment
– local and/or remote monitoring and operation via CAT5 or WiFi
FEATURES
Power supply
Universal switch mode power supply up to 400VAC
tolerant with Power Factor Correction
Low Inrush Limiting reduces AC inrush current, removing the need for expensive power sequencers
Detachable AC mains cable with IEC C19/22.2 (16A for EU, 20 A for USA) socket
Protections
Fully protected circuit design
with:
AC protection: shut down power supply when AC mains voltage is outside operating range
Clip limiter: prevents severely clipped waveforms from reaching loudspeakers, while still maintaining full peak power output
DC protection: protects against infr
asonic signal at the outputs
VHF protections: protects the loudspeakers against non-audible, strong, non-musical high-frequency signals
Short circuit protection: protects the amplifier from short circuit or other stressful events for the output circuits wi
th automatic protection reset
Long-term limiter: protects the loudspeaker against steady long-term rms (non-audio) signals reducing maximum output
Thermal protection: output stages operating temperature up to 80 °C (176 °F)
Over
-current protection: tempora
rily disables all outputs if power supply peak current threshold is exceeded, automatically resumes normal operation
after transient event subsides
Temperature controlled continuous variable speed fan, front to back airflow

Loudspeaker
Preset Library
Complete Community loudspeaker library
allows users to select
loudspeaker
model,
type (Lo
-Z, 70V, 100V), and application, then automatically sets the
appropriate
FIR processing and multi
-stage limiters
.
Each
Community
preset
also includes
loudspeaker
-specific
power/impedance
values, allowing ArmoniaPlus to
automatically calculate
and display the
power needs and available headroom on each output channel,
plus the total power draw and headroom
available
from
the ALC power supply
. This
feature removes all the guesswork normally required to match loudspeakers with appropriate amplifiers.
Multiple loudspeaker wired in parallel may be assigned to each output. Total resultant impedance and power needs are calcula
ted automatically.
