The Installation Line Array (ILA) from QSC ( is now shipping. Built into a lightweight, molded enclosure with simplified rigging, the series offers quality performance at an affordable price. Each ILA loudspeaker has two 8-inch, neodymium magnet woofers — one operating at the low end and the other covering midrange for improved directivity in the crossover region. Dual-titanium-dome, neodymium compression drivers with 1.75-inch voice coils are mounted on a multiple aperture diffraction waveguide for wide 140-degree coverage. ILAs can be bi-amped or tri-amped, and include rigging hardware. An optional subwoofer is offered.

Studio Technologies' ( SPLnet system provides a set of tools to measure, display and respond to sound levels for level compliance. Optional software allows level data to be stored, or users can view real-time level data using an integrated Java applet. In large venues, multiple applets can display the sound system level at multiple points — especially useful in situations where crowd size and weather conditions change during an event. The system can also trigger other equipment and serve as a “confidence monitor” for unattended venues, including remote monitoring over the Web.

The SB Stage Box audio snake system from Link USA ( is designed for applications using a single mixer. Stage extensions allow for separate I/O channels if the user runs one cable from the stage to the mixer (black color for mixer in; red for mixer out). Built from 15/10 steel and finished in black-dust ebony, the SB features Amphenol XLRs, individually shielded Eurocable multipair cable and a 100cm fan out. Systems are available from eight to 48 channels in a variety of I/O combinations.

Designed to provide high power and intelligent control in a lightweight package is the Tour Grade Series from Electro-Voice ( Model TG7 and TG5 amps are based on three-stage Class-H grounded bridge design. From a 2U housing that's less than 15 kg, they provide 3,500 watts/channel (TG7) and 1,900 watts/channel (TG5). Both feature five-step fans and slots for IRIS-Net DSP modules to offer transparent network control.

XTA (dist. by Group One, offers new I/O configurations based on its DP428/DP448 audio management systems. The series offers two or four inputs, with up to eight outs, and comprises the DP424 (2-in, 4-out), DP444 (4×4), the 4×6 DP446 and the 4×8 DP448, formerly known as the DP428. Each has a 28-band graphic EQ, eight filters, built-in delay and multiple 48dB crossover slopes. All outputs feature polarity switching, HP/LP filters, delay and up to nine filters. Any input can be routed to any combination of outs, and I/Os are phase-adjustable in 2-degree steps. The crossover offers Bessel, Butterworth and Linkwitz-Reilly selections in 6/12/18/24/48dB-per-octave slopes. Two-stage RMS and Clip/D-max limiters are available, with look-ahead for the clip limiter attack time. The series supports internal sample rates up to 96 kHz and external sample rates to 192 kHz. Options include AudioCore PC remote software for controlling one or 128 DP4 Series processors and a Walkabout Kit for wireless system tuning from anywhere in the venue.

Equation Audio ( expands its Dominion Series of live performance microphones with the DS-V9, a cardioid handheld vocal model. The DS-V9 features a multipoint internal shock-mount for its electret condenser capsule, maximum SPL handling of 129 dB and a 30 to 18k Hz response.
