Italy - Outline has announced the immediate availability of the new Stadia 28 constant curvature array designed for outdoor applications, launched during the 2020 edition of ISE.
Stadia 28 is a medium-throw system for permanent outdoor installations, suitable for sound reinforcement in stadiums, theme parks, leisure facilities, tourist attractions and public spaces.
Its main selling point is its weight-power ratio, being a single enclosure, weighing just 21 kg (46.2 lb), but able to reach 139 dB SPL, by means of two 8” mid-woofers and a compression driver with a 3” diaphragm - all in neodymium. The system operates in bi-amp format.
The dispersion angle of 90 x 22.5 degrees enables, for example, to form horizontal or vertical arrays with no less than 135° x 90° using just six cabinets, which means guaranteeing coverage in any context, as well as remarkable versatility.
Additionally, Stadia 28 hardware is designed for safe long-lasting installation: the 10 mounting points in light top-grade anodised Ergal are fixed to the internal load-bearing structure, manufactured entirely in stainless steel.
IP55 protection rating is ensured by a three-layer coating in elastoplastic material (‘OutSIDE Coating Technology’ - Outline proprietary technology) along with a series of sophisticated ideas introduced in Outline’s manufacturing process.
Outline’s senior loudspeaker system designer Francesco Simeoni states, “The lines of the cabinet, combined with the waveguide designed and optimised specifically for this type of application thanks to the use of simulation software of the finished elements, enable to create real ‘sectors’ of acoustic projection that can be configured with extreme flexibility, thus meeting the coverage requirements of any kind of venue.
“Particular effort was taken with the design of the cabinets and with the choice of the components, focussed on the water/weather-proof characteristics to ensure the system remains fully operational through time and in any situation, even under severe conditions. In the majority of standard applications, the internal mechanical load-bearing structure enables the installation of arrays without any expensive complex external mechanical structures being required.”
