Wharfedale Versadrive SC 48 – Speaker Management

The Versadrive speaker management system SC-48 offers all the digital signal processing and detailed control that a live sound engineer needs.

Whether we like it or not, it’s a reality that PA systems are complex.  A lot of time is spent selecting the best loudspeaker and amplifier combinations, and systems can easily grow.  It’s therefore essential to maintain control to ensure the best quality sound throughout the rig.
Packaged into a neat 1U rack design, an intuitive and concise front panel with LCD screen enables engineers to make essential adjustments to the speaker configuration with accuracy.

Expand Your Rig With the All-Powerful Versadrive SC-48

While one Versadrive SC-48 is powerful in its own right, the RS485 connection opens up capabilities to link up to 255 units, with remote control from up-to 1500 metres. Complete stadiumssuperclubs or any multi-room install is now easily managed by one person on their laptop. The USB connection and supplied software work as another visual aid with access to update your own preset for different events.

Control Everything Via PC

All elements of the Versadrive SC-48 Wharfedale Pro can be controlled via PC. Not only is this extremely convenient, but a clear central graphical representation of your EQ and crossover points are displayed. This also makes light work of copying channel settings and organizing your presets. Using the PC software also allows for system backups to be made.
