LR Baggs Synapse Personal PA System

After decades of consistently raising the bar in acoustic amplification with the pickups and electronics LR Baggs have become known for, they are naturally compelled to add another level of quality to your sound by completing the chain from input to output. Introducing the LR Baggs Synapse Personal PA System the result from nearly four years of our most advanced engineering to date. Developed primarily for the singer songwriter and solo acoustic performer, this revolutionary approach to the portable loudspeaker isn't just visually unique, it will fill a room and impact your audience like no other speaker can.

Learn more about the Synapse in this video by LR Baggs:


The Speaker

A radical departure from conventional loudspeakers and portable line array systems, the Synapse employs a unique, all-horn speaker design that projects a full 180 degree horizontal waveform at all frequencies, connecting both you and your audience together in the exact same sound. They've also eliminated the disconnect inherent in two way systems with a groundbreaking compression woofer that propagates sound in the same fashion as the high frequency driver, seamlessly blending the two as if they were one cohesive source for uniformity across all frequencies. The combination of compression, the ease and intimacy created by the horns, and the ultra-wide dispersion fills the room with a dynamically rich, natural sound.

Preamplifiers

The electronics feature two channels of all-discrete preamplifiers with independent gain controls, 3-band EQ, and a custom voiced reverb. The circuit is composed of carefully selected, top-shelf components chosen to retain the purity of the signal and deliver studio quality sound for live performance.

Power Amplifier

The 500 watt, Class-D power amplifier is compact and lightweight, with more than enough power to propel the drivers loudly and efficiently. After an in depth blind audition of more than a dozen amplifier modules, they unanimously fell in love with this power amplifier and then went even further by working with the manufacturer to tailor it for our purposes.

The Housing

The design of the housing is purely "form follows function". The front cover was shaped to present a full 180 degree horizontal waveform in a hemispherical pattern. They then constructed a cabinet that would yield our desired frequency response and SPL, while remaining compact for easy portability. The combination of a high quality, walnut veneer plywood cabinet with a speaker baffle and an interlocking front cover made from high density, structural foam minimizes resonances to preserve fidelity of sound.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"A+"
Overall: I purchased the LR BAGGS Synapse Personal PA system about a year ago and I could not be happier. It's great for my solo acoustic performances. (Acoustic guitar/ukulele and vocals.) Wether I am playing a venue for 200 people or a small setting for 5 people, indoor or outdoor, ambience vibe or full concert vibe.... it just adapts to each setting perfectly. I truly feel it does all the sound worrying for me. As someone who's been performing as a professional musician the last 13 years and been on stage as a performer for 31 years, I really value not having to worry about the sound and technical issues and just fully be able to focus on my performance. This is something I truly appreciate. Not to mention how simple the set up! Just plug her in, set your dials and play. The reverb quality is outstanding. I love how it makes my vocals and guitar sound. I also get a lot of compliments on the uniqueness of the look and the quality of the sound. Playing live music is what I do for a living. Playing anywhere from 4 – 8 shows per work, each show lasting between 2 – 4 hours and it has not let me down once. I've used countless systems in the past and this is by far the best solo system I've ever owned! A+
