EAW’s KF200NT comprises a 10-inch woofer with 2.5-inch voice coil and a coaxial mid-high driver (8-inch cone MF with 2-inch voice coil and 1.75-inch voice coil compression driver HF), and features a 1,500W amplifier. The module has EAW Focusing™ processing, software-accessible DSP and U-Net™ network.

The XLC full-bandwidth three-way line array system from Electro-Voice is an axis-asymmetrical design: Within each XLC cabinet, mid- and high-range drivers are arrayed vertically. The design includes a passive crossover for bi-amp operation. A 12-inch E-V speaker is used for LF/mid-bass. Two 6.5-inch custom-designed drivers in a vertical array comprise the mid-frequency bandpass. For high-frequency summing, the Hydra plane-wave generator can be tuned to produce optimal wavefront geometry for any design.

The JBL VT4886 subcompact, passive, three-way line array element has an integrated mid/high waveguide for vertical wavefront control and 110-degree horizontal dispersion. Other features include four midrange transducers with Thermomaster® cooling and Radiation Boundary Integrator® technology, and an LF diffraction absorber.

KS Audio’s CPD LINE AutoCurve® offers built-in hang-angle re-adjustment motors and an automatic FIR processing/EQ-compensation program. The AutoCurve system comprises CPD top-enclosure units (each with two 8-inch MF drivers and 1-inch HF compression driver); FIRTEC DSP; and rear-mounted, self-powered, 1,000W amplification driven by MOSFET PWM (Class-D) FET power.

L-AcousticsKARA offers the SB18 subwoofer for reinforced LF contour applications and the company’s Wavefront Sculpture Technology. Features include added LF resources for increased bandwidth and coherence, improved directivity control in the horizontal plane, vertical coverage capability and improved ergonomics. Also included is LA-RAK touring rack and LA8 amplified controller preset library.

Martin Audio’s MLA multi-cellular loudspeaker array’s methodology uses numerical optimization of the array’s output based on an acoustic model. The multi-cellular format has six individual cells in each enclosure, each with its own DSP and powering capability. Each 24-enclosure array has 144 cells, and the company’s Display 2 system design software automatically calculates FIR DSP filters for each cell.

Three new modules join McCauley Sound’s MONARC system: the full-range MLA6 and mid-sized MLA3, and the MS6 sub. The MLA6’s Integrated Rigging System allows a MLA6 column to be rolled into place, interconnected, set to angle and lifted into the air without the need for any tools, additional parts or special hardware. The MLA6’s Intercell Summation Aperture™ and Adaptive Density Inverse Flat Lens™ technologies work with the cell’s mid/high complement to integrate mid- and HF energies into a single, vertically continuous wavefront.

MINA from Meyer Sound produces up to 128dB SPL over its 100-degree horizontal coverage area. MINA can be used as a curvilinear array system, as well as in frontfill and under-balcony applications. Options include weather protection, custom color cabinets and low-profile rigging pins.
