The Netherlands - Next-proaudio has announced the launch of LA26, a compact modular line source with a long throw capability.
The LA26 is a two-way, full range passive line array cabinet housing two 6.5" neodymium flat diaphragm drivers located in the side walls of the HF Oblate Spheroidal Waveguide, a 2" diaphragm HF neodymium driver and a passive network crossover presenting a nominal input impedance of 16Ω. A fast and easy three-point auto-locking rigging mechanism is integrated for easy build of ground stacked or flown systems.
The new technology waveguide and co-planar transducer configuration, generates precisely coherent wavefronts uniformly spread in the horizontal plane (105°) and precisely coupled in the vertical plane without sacrificing HF presence in the far field, further eliminating the low-mid lobbing normally associated with two-way line source systems. According to the manufacturer, the main goal is to improve the audience coverage by “the unrivalled dispersion control and smooth even sound radiation pattern”.
Measuring 498.5mm (19.6in) wide and weighting only 15kg, the product’s elegant lines and flush-fitted rigging allow it to fit into any architecture, making it a natural element for installations in concert halls, theatres, and special venues demanding minimum visual obstruction. The LA26 can also be used as touring sound reinforcement for small and medium-size venues.
“Our new LA26 is the smallest and lightest in the LA series keeping the elegance of LA Family,” explains Antonio Correia, R&D manager at Next-proaudio. “The new line array model is uniquely flexible, upgradeable, and financially accessible.”
