Line Arrays

Tour Stars


A whole lot of line arrays have appeared over the past decade, with almost all speaker manufacturers having their own version. PALM technology surveys the field and presents six line arrays gracing the touring circuits. This focus is purely for info purpose and intended as a guide.

Nexo GEO M6


In 2014 Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems released the Nexo GEO M6 compact loudspeaker series. Drawing on more than 30 years’ experience at the forefront of acoustic design, GEO M6 utilises a number of patented technologies to achieve exceptional levels of sonic performance. And For smaller shows, NEXO GEO M6 delivers uncompromised full-range sound from a compact system, with an elegant internal rigging system. Comprising two identically-sized cabinets – the GEO M620 main and GEO M6B bass extension – and complemented by a comprehensive range of mounting accessories, GEO M6 offers installation contractors and sound rental companies a dependable, TÜV-certified system.

Main Features include:

• The GEO M620 is a full-range unit for stand-alone, curved array or line array application.
• The GEO M6B is a low and mid-frequency partner module to the GEO M620, for applications which demand more powerful reinforcement, such as live music.
• Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource: GEO M6 utilises NEXO’s patented Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource (HRW) to control acoustic energy by creating a virtual wavesource ‘outside the box’, resulting in optimal wavesource coupling without destructive interference.
• Waveguide Flanges: System flexibility can be increased by adding flanges to the HF waveguide exit, changing the standard 80˚ acoustic coverage across the horizontal plane to 120˚.
• Directivity Phase Device: A Directivity Phase Device (DPD) on each cone driver extends the upper frequency limit for file source coupling between adjacent speakers. 6.5” drivers coherently couple as if there were twice as many 3.25” cones mounted at half the physical distance.
• Directivity Phase Device: A Directivity Phase Device (DPD) on each cone driver extends the upper frequency limit for file source coupling between adjacent speakers. 6.5” drivers coherently couple as if there were twice as many 3.25” cones mounted at half the physical distance.

• Port tube profiling: Internal faces of the port tube are profiled to ensure smooth air flow, reducing turbulence to increase low frequency efficiency and linearity at high power.

L-Acoustics

L-Acoustics’ K2 with Panflex Technology includes the K2 full-range element with Panflex horizontal steering, operating from 35 Hz to 20 kHz; the K1-SB LF element down to 30 Hz or LF throw down to 35 Hz; SB28 LF element, extending down to 25 Hz; and the LA4X LA8 amplified controllers. K2 employs Panflex combines mechanically adjustable fins with DSP algorithms effective from 300 Hz. Four settings are possible: two symmetric (70° or 110°) and two asymmetric (90° as 35°/55° or 55°/35°). The K2 system can match the complex shape of any audience geometry with ideal sonic performance and minimum noise pollution.

The K2 loudspeaker enclosure is based on a 3-way active design. It comprises 4 input sections: 2 LF and 1 MF at a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, and 1 HF at a nominal impedance of 16 ohms. It features two 12” speakers and four 6.5”, all direct-radiating neodymium speakers mounted in a bass-reflex enclosure, and two 3” neodymium diaphragm compression drivers coupled to individual DOSC waveguides and adjustable directivity fins. The transducers are implemented in a K-shape configuration. The K2 enclosure operates over the nominal frequency range of 35 Hz to 20 kHz. Its LF resources can be reinforced with the dedicated K1-SB extension and its bandwidth can be extended down to 25 Hz with the SB28 subwoofer. The K2 rigging system allows vertical assembly of enclosures with various inter-element angles (up to 10°), constituting a line array with variable curvature. The combination of the coplanar symmetry and the DOSC waveguide in the HF region ensure a perfect acoustic coupling between the elements of an array. The WST (Wavefront Sculpture Technology) criteria are fulfilled, so that such an array can be qualified as a true line source. The K2 is driven and quad-amplified by the LA8 or LA4X controller.

Outline GTO C-12

The Outline GTO C-12 is a compact line-source enclosure that can be efficiently transported and deployed, but still produce the power, intelligibility and control necessary to handle a wide range of events and locations.

It is a descendent of the GTO, a system which, was launched in 2011. GTO C-12 develops the high transducer density concept pioneered by GTO by packing eight drive units into a remarkably compact cabinet, containing two 12” low frequency drivers, four 6.5” midrange units and two 3”-throat compression drivers, mounted on the same award-winning DPRWG waveguide found in its big brother.

GTO C-12 retains a key element from GTO in the V-shaped front baffle called the ‘V-Power Concept’. This ground-breaking idea facilitates superior acoustical coupling between high-frequency modules, thus producing a smooth yet extended HF response. It also creates the ideal ‘unbroken baffle’ shape through an array which minimises diffraction and deterioration, especially in the far field.

The C-12 cabinet is 21.6% smaller in the vertical plane than the GTO, while overall cabinet weight has been reduced by a remarkable 30%.

The footprint of the new cabinet is exactly the same as all the other modules in the GTO range, allowing full mechanical compatibility with GTO, GTO-SUB, GTO-LOW and GTO-DF in terms of rigging, flying hardware and wheelboards. GTO C-12 is also fully compatible with the Outline DBS and LAB21 subwoofers, and we can supply suitable DSP controller presets for any combination of GTO C-12 and Outline subwoofers.

GTO C-12 shares a common voicing with our other concert-series products, allowing them to be freely integrated to create system designs to handle any application..

Main Features include:

• Compact high-power full range line-source element to form part of the GTO turnkey solution.
• Light weight; 12 elements with 1 GTO DF from a single 1 ton chain motor.
• High efficiency full range element incorporating 2 x 12” LF drive-units, 4 x 6.5” MF drive-units and 2 x 3” diaphragm HF drivers on a D.P.R.W.G. waveguide, coupled to an Outline ‘V-Power’ baffle.
• Very high power handling (3200 LF + 2400 MF + 1000 HF watts AES peak) and sound pressure (147.5 dB SPL peak @ 1 metre – full space).
• Equipped with the high-precision, lightweight, integrated GTO rigging system to allow accurate aiming and coverage.
• Design file available within the ‘Open Array’ 3D acoustic simulation software.
• Ideal for theatre, arena, festival and stadium productions
