Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.
We offer a 30 Day Return Policy should you choose to return a product for any reason.
Since 1972 Sound Approach has backed all items that we sell. If the product you have purchased is not right for you, let us know. We strive to find the right product for your unique situation. We will work with you to find a sound solution and recommend what product will resolve your issue. That being said, we will credit, refund, or exchange any product you purchase within 30 days of your purchase.
Certain products, may be returned, but are subject to a restocking fee of 20%. Please contact us to determine, before ordering, if the item will fall into this category. Usually it is for the high-end electronics & audiophile-grade speakers. We want to make sure that we match you with the correct product, so please call and speak to any of our technical experts prior to ordering.
Four Important Conditions:
1. We need to get the original box, manuals, and any materials that came with the product for you to receive a full refund- with no re-stocking charges. The item/product must still be in like-new condition.
2. If the item had Free Shipping and you are returning a non-defective product, the original shipping cost will be deducted from the total that will be refunded back.
3. Special Ordered items are not returnable (see below).
4. Once an RMA is issued- it is valid for 10 business days. After 10 days, the RMA is canceled and returns will not be accepted.
Shipping and handling charges cannot be reimbursed unless it is our mistake. Yes, we can make mistakes – not often, but it can happen.
SoundTube - LA880i - Line Array Column Loudspeaker
The SoundTube LA880i is not a typical line array column loudspeaker. It is an advanced LAPS (Line Array-Point Source) 3-way design that provides a very short near-field extent and robust far-field performance. Frequency tapering of low and mid frequency pass bands allows the LA880i to maintain a more consistent ratio of array height to radiated wavelength, ensuring a stable vertical beamwidth that out-performs many other single box line arrays.
The LAPS technology in the LA880i makes the speaker’s near-field shorter than most other line arrays. Because its effective line length is kept relatively constant as a function of frequency, the near-field to
far-field transition occurs at only 3 meters from the speaker. Beyond this distance, there is no change in the frequency response or the directivity pattern of the speaker (40 x 120 degrees).
Featuring eight 4.5-inch woofers, eight 2-inch midrange drivers and one 2.5-inch planar magnetics (ribbon) high frequency driver for extremely smooth high frequency response, the LA880i achieves superb coverage in an enclosure measuring only 7.91” x 40.87” x 11.99”. Numerous mounting options allow the use of the LA880i on walls, near ceilings, on poles, or suspended via cables.
Optional Addition to LA880i:
Additional low frequency directivity can be achieved with the addition of the LA808i LFDE (Low Frequency Directivity Element). NOT a subwoofer, the LA808i adds eight 4.5-inch woofers to the system to extend the directivity control by up to an octave lower in frequency than with the LA880i alone. Its use is recommended in areas with a high reverberation time. (See options menu to add this option)
The LA880i is ideal for PA and sound reinforcement applications wherever large groups of people may be present. Typical applications include large houses of worship, university lecture halls, transportation centers such as train platforms, and airport terminals. In highly reverberant situations, adding the LA808i LFDE will improve low frequency directivity in the space.
