CARLSBAD, Calif. – The Bigfoot® Line Array, the loudest and most powerful battery powered PA ever engineered, will debut to European audiences for the first time ever this February at Integrated Systems Europe 2016 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, by portable sound system manufacturer, Anchor Audio, Inc. The concept for a turnkey system of this sound pressure level (SPL) and wattage stemmed from multiple requests from Anchor Audio’s customer and dealer network to deliver a portable sound system that can be heard across a football field, over military trainings, and provide a portable sound solution for large events.
To accomplish its claims, the Bigfoot emits 130 dB and 400 Watts AC/DC of sound through its five 20 cm neodymium woofers and one high-efficiency compression driver, all powered by 3 rechargeable batteries. With a durable UV resistant enclosure and two rugged, heavy-duty 20 cm wheels, the Bigfoot transports easily and, like its namesake, can withstand tough environments. Bigfoot – as well as the majority of Anchor’s product line – is manufactured in the USA, ships same day, and is covered by an industry leading six-year warranty.
“We like to do the unprecedented,” said David Jacobs, chairman of the board for Anchor Audio, on developing the first ever battery powered 130 dB line array. “Our customers are continually thrilled with their Beacon Line Array Portable Sound System – excited by both the sound quality and sophisticated design – but an increasing demographic of our customers are wanting even more power, which is why we developed the Bigfoot.”
The Bigfoot is the first Anchor Audio portable sound system that offers up to four built-in UHF wireless receivers. Standard inputs and outputs include: two universal microphone inputs, one 1/4” balanced line input, one 3.5 mm AUX balanced line input, and USB charging for portable devices. It also features standard built-in Bluetooth connectivity on all models and an optional built-in CD/MP3 combo player. The Bigfoot includes bass and treble controls for fine-tuning as well as a battery level indicator.
The Bigfoot Line Array is available à la carte as well as in packages with one, two, three, or four wireless receivers and microphones. The cost of a base unit starts at €3,075 – suggested retail price. The top of the line package, the Bigfoot Quad, includes the system with standard built-in Bluetooth, a built-in CD/MP3 combo player, four wireless receivers, and the customer’s choice of four wireless microphones.
“This thing will blow your hair back,” said Janet Jacobs, president of Anchor Audio. Bigfoot will debut to EU customers at the 2016 ISE International Tradeshow this February at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in Anchor Audio’s stand #7-W170. VP of marketing, Emily Golding, will be attending the show, along with international account managers and top Anchor Audio dealers, and the team expects the Bigfoot debut to be as successful in Europe as it has been in the United States.
