LINE ARRAY

linearray_900x100px.jpg
The PLa-series Line array speakers are based on the same ideas and design, with very special waveguides and soundguides, not only for the drivers, but also for the woofers, enabling the array to have a controled vertical and horisontal dispersion pattern, over a wider range of frequencies.
110-120 horisontal dispersion pattern, and 7,5-15 vertical dispersion pattern.
The PLa-series are avaliable in bi-amplified, passive and self-powered versions, CLF-files and FIR filters are avaliable for download.

True Line array systems

PRESENTATION
We have come a long way since the Line array era started, though line source speakers are nothing new in itself, column speakers has been around for almost as long as the amplified loudspeaker.

In the last decade or two, a giant leap in control, dispersion, SPL and quality has been made.
Using the -3dB for each doubling of distance and coupling of speakers vs frequency, we can today manufacture soundsystems we only dreamt of 20 years ago. where advanced acoustical 3D simulations in colaboration with extended field-testing are a part of the developing process.

As with all our loudspeakers, we can supply advanced 3D measured files, to import into any 3D acoustic simulation software, such as Ease, Catt, Odeon, this helps to predict dispersion, SPL and frequency responce in each installation long before the actual installation is done.
This ensures an accuracy and perfection in installations not possible before.

The PROPHON PLA-series of Line source array modules are fitted with cutting edge technology, we have used only the very latest in design and acoustic theories, and only the best components avaliable in drivers, waveguide, amplifiers, DSP´s and transducers have been used.
We have then packed it in user-friendly cabinets with smart rigging hardware.
Wether using for live aplications in the tour business or installing in theatres, churches, live stages, consert halls, convention centres or sports arenas, a Line Array from Prophon will give you all the advantages of a true Line Array, with a controled sound, perfect line array coupling, unsurpassed dynamic, extremely low distortion and a flat frequency responce.
Reproducing speach, live music and recorded music with ease over vast distances as well as near-field.
Features and advantages
• True Line source behaviour
• -3 dB loss for each doubling of distance
• Extremely controled dispersion over the whole frequency range, not only the HF.
• True stereo image
• Compact format
• Specially designed waveguides on both the LF and the HF units.
• wide dispersion pattern horisontally
• Narrow dispersion pattern vertically
• CLF and Ease files for downloading
• Easy to rig and setup
• Neodymium components gives a light wight and high BL-factor.
• Very low distortion
• Unrivalled sound-separation
• Self-powered or bi-amplified.

Applications

• Small to large sized live conserts, depending on height of array
• Festivals with live or recorded music
• installation in live performance stages
• Installation in theatres.
• Installation in Consert halls
• Installation in Auditoriums
• Installation in churches
• Installation in large nightclubs and venues
• Outdoor or indoor use






 
 
There are three sizes (models) in the PLA-series, PLA2821,  PLA2611 and PLA21021
PLA2821 and PLA2611 are avaliable in active (self-powered) version
and passive (Bi-amplified) version, the passive versions need external 19'' rackmounted amplifiers and pre-programmed DSP-processors, all our dsp-amplifiers and DSP processors have settings for PLA-series Line array speakers for download and integration.

The PLA21010 are only avaliable in passive version, where a sophisticated, deticated passive crossover network are integrated in the speaker, with a passive 8 ohm input.

For fixed arcitectural  installations, white or any RAL color is avaliable 

PLA2611
with two 6,5'' neodymium woofers mounted on seperate 110 degree  dispersion-guides
and one 1'' neodymium driver mounted on a 110x15 dispersional waveguide.
Avaliable active, self-powered with 700W amplifier and DSP, or passive bi-amplified.
