NEXT-proaudio: LAs418G Ground Stack Version

Michael Eddy

Well aware of the issue of moving heavy loads, NEXT-proaudio has added the LAs418G to its Subwoofer options. This model is a new ground stack version of the company’s current subwoofer, the LAs418, but is designed to not be rigged. The existing LAs418 allows the user to array the sub with optional external hardware, since it includes all of the internal box rigging hardware. With this new ground stack version, there is no way to array it, which is not a requirement for some users. This allows for a substantial weight reduction while keeping the same design and performance.
