The General's features
The General is currently the Worlds' only active speaker that has an inbuilt Leveliza and can engineer its own levels accordingly.
Although predominantly designed as a mid/high speaker, in this mode the Generals will respond down to about 50hz, which gives them the ability to be really useful as a full range solution in applications not requiring a strong sub response.
In this mode the Generals can perform at their loudest and respond down to about 150hz with a fairly gentle 12db/octave rolloff.
The unique "Limitiza" circuit in the Generals continuously monitors the activity of the limiters. It ignores slight or "soft" limiting, but if it detects any of the limiters are consistently limiting significantly or "hard" then it gently eases back the overall system gain until the limiting action is only soft. When an active speaker is slightly or "soft" limiting it means it is running as loud as it can without significantly compromising it's sound in any way.
The Limitiza means that you can
try to "overdrive" the Generals as much as you like, but they will just maintain this ultimate 100% output level without compromise in sound quality or losing dynamic range.
