We've been pretty impressed by this affordable Active Line Array. With the flexibility to have it suspended or ground-stacked and the ability to combine systems together, it's a very compact and versatile solution for those running larger indoor or outdoor events. As an example, two of these systems would be ideal for crowds of 300 at an outdoor cinema or music venue.
Not to be too technical, a line array disperses sound differently and more efficiently than regular PA speakers. You don't need the sound to be as loud on stage, thus preserving the hearing of those close by whilst enabling those further away to still hear clearly.
Despite its compact size, it has an amazingly deep bass reproduction. It's ready to use right out of the box, but can intuitively be set up to your own exact requirements.
A larger version is also available - please email email@example.com for more info.
Professional State-of-the-Art PA Technology at a Compact Size:
The active speaker array L-RAY/1000 from IMG STAGELINE impresses by a perfect sound with professional adjustment facilities, the advantages of the radiation typical of array, a high-quality workmanship and an amazing level stability.
Professional PA speaker array (controlled by DSP software), active, 700 W (350 W+350 W)
Compact array of high power capability with 4 mid-high range speaker units and a dual bass module, each section with its own 350 W power amplifier and controlling software (the configuration of the system is supported by a PC, but it operates as a stand-alone unit!). Supplied with extensive and variable equipment for suspended mounting systems (Flyware). The mid-high range systems are each equipped with 2 x 10 cm (4") high-performance speakers and a magnetostatic speaker for a perfect reproduction rich in detail. The dynamic characteristics are absolutely convincing, at the same time the tonality at the basic setting is very pleasant. Despite its compact size, the bass module with two 20 cm (8") bass speakers provides an amazingly deep bass reproduction and a high level stability which is only possible by using special bass speakers of very high power capability and the comprehensive DSP optimisation.
The software allows the following adjustments (min. system requirement is a Windows PC only, WIN98 or higher, with CD drive and interface):
- Parametric equalizer (6 bands)
- Filters (high-pass or low-pass up to 36 dB/oct. with various characteristics)
- Compression and limiting
Up to 10 L-RAY systems can be addressed via one RS-485 data bus. With the optional USB/RS-485 converter DA-70157, it is possible to connect a PC or laptop with USB interface to the serial RS-485 interface.
On delivery, the software of the system is matched to a perfect base linearity and can be used immediately! Otherwise, the software adjustments are extremely easy to do and sound engineers can even operate it intuitively.
The system is supplied with a robust mounting frame which is both suitable for suspended installation and for floor and stage applications. The array elements can be curved in 1° steps. The individual components are locked via quick-release pins. The mounting frame also allows for suspended installation of the array elements only, without the subwoofer.
Furthermore, the array elements feature a connecting plate for a bracket for mounting it onto a stand. With the accessories LR-1000U and KM-21367, which are both available at option, the system also allows for a ground-stacked configuration. For this purpose, the subwoofer cabinet features a recessed M20 mounting plate.
The speaker cables with NEUTRIK SPEAKON connectors are in the scope of delivery and allow to connect the parts with each other and with the subwoofer.
Connection to the mains is done via a POWERCON jack, supplied with suitable mains cable AAC-115P.
The robust wooden cabinets feature grilles and a durable structured coating.
The L-RAY/1000 systems are a very high-quality solution for every PA application where both perfect tonality and perfect radiation across the room are required. The advantages of the system particularly take effect with fixed installations in clubs and discotheques as well as mobile stage applications of medium size. For larger PA applications, the use of several L-RAY in a cluster is recommended.
