Mobile specific small to medium format 3-way line array loudspeaker
The XSL12 is a mobile specific line array module purposefully designed for small to medium scale sound reinforcement. It can also supplement GSL and KSL Systems as fill and delay. Up to twenty-four / twenty-two cabinets in compression or tension mode from XSL Flying frames and up top twelve cabinets from the smaller XSL Mounting frames can be flown in vertical columns to produce a 120° constant directivity dispersion pattern in the horizontal plane. The XSLi12houses two 8” neodymium forward facing LF drivers, two side firing 6.5” neodymium LF drivers, one horn-loaded 6.5” MF driver, and two 1” exit HF compression drivers with 2” voice coils mounted to a dedicated wave shaping device. Due to the patented arrangement of the front and side firing LF drivers, in combination with their specific processing functions, seamless directivity is maintained from 60 Hz to above 18 kHz. Further expanding flexibility and catering for applications where smaller arrays are used and ArrayProcessing is not required, the XSL8 includes the option to link two cabinets in Line or Arc mode. SL-Series’ flying hardware comes with a patented workflow with integrated tension and compression rigging modes, allowing for splay angles between cabinets to be set from 0° to 14° in 1° increments. The loudspeakers are driven actively by two channels of an appropriate d&b amplifier, which provides dedicated processing functions for the front LF and passively crossed-over side LF and MF/HF sections. This component geometry allows the cabinet to produce a perfectly symmetrical dispersion pattern.
The cabinet enclosure is made from injection moulded PC-ABS plastic, and has an impact and weather protected 2K finish. The front and side panels incorporate rigid metal grills backed by an acoustically transparent and water repellent fabric. Each side panel incorporates a recessed handle, with two additional handles provided at the rear.
The following amplifiers can be used to drive the XSL12:
