Germany - At this year’s Prolight+Sound, the MAILA modular line array system occupied the entire LD Systems booth.
MAILA is a scalable sound reinforcement system formed by four basic elements: the MAILA SAT satellite module, the MAILA COL column module, the MAILA SPA amplifier module, and the MAILA SUB subwoofer. With these elements, MAILA enables scalable, flexible system configurations for a wide range of sound reinforcement applications.
This extends from precise stereo speech reinforcement without subwoofers, to larger conferences and club gigs, to flown line array systems for professional live sound reinforcement at festivals with variable subwoofer arrangements on the ground.
In addition to the system flexibility, MAILA offers features and technologies that aim to simplify the life of every sound engineer. SmartLink+, for example, enables wireless connection (power + signal) as well as automatic detection of the individual modules via robust aluminium rails, while the invisible LogoLink antennas offer wireless connection with ranges of up to 30m under practical conditions. Using the free MAILA App (iPad OS), each MAILA system can also be configured quickly, easily and in detail – including the calculation of SAT angles and wireless system updates.
The EasySplay mechanism allows users to adjust the tilt of each satellite almost infinitely between 0° and 8°. The angle can be adjusted with just one hand via a rotary handle, even under load. In this way, every MAILA system offers a flexible concept for adapting the sound coverage to any sound reinforcement situation at any time. The result is a large, scalable sound for almost any application.
The MAILA SAT satellite speaker – which comes in a unibody aluminium enclosure – is a line array element and houses five 1” tweeters in front of a 6.5” midrange driver, arranged in coaxial design based on Advanced WaveAhead technology.
The MAILA COL full-range column module, with its four 6.5” active woofers, doesn’t just provide an extended low-mid range – it also includes a four-channel DSP amplifier with 2.5 kW of total power, which drives both the column itself and the MAILA SAT satellites.
MAILA SPA is the only MAILA module without integrated loudspeakers – and is an integral part of the MAILA concept. MAILA SPA is an amplifier module in an elegant unibody aluminium design. It features an integrated 1.25 kW power amplifier with SysCore® DSP for driving up to eight MAILA SAT satellites.
MAILA SUB forms the basis of every MAILA system. This 2.5 kW double 15” high-performance subwoofer is a bandpass design and delivers a massive and powerful bass foundation in any application with its SysCore DSP.
LD Systems offers MAILA in five sets, each with customised basic configurations and accessories.
Baptiste Languille, senior global brand marketing manager LD Systems, comments, “Until now, no one in the professional rental market had LD Systems on their radar. Now, MAILA is here, offering a flexibility and ease of use that has never been seen before. I am absolutely convinced that MAILA will establish itself worldwide as the ideal complement to large, bulky line array systems.”
Viktor Wiesner, senior product manager, pro audio, adds, “Finally, the cat is out of the bag! MAILA is starting to make history. MAILA is a system that you have to see, hear and touch to realise the full added value. That’s why we cordially invite anyone and everyone who is interested to come to us in Neu-Anspach for a detailed demo, to see for themselves, and to meet the LD Systems development team.”
