The Variable Line Array (VLA) Compact Series is a line array loudspeaker solution built upon the industry-leading VLA line array solution. Designed to fill the needs of system designers for installations requiring the long-throw capabilities of the VLA in a more compact line array solution, the VLA Compact offers advanced audio capabilities, out-of-the-box IP55-rated weather protection and a fiberglass enclosure for stadiums and arenas and any other project in need of compact, high-powered line arrays.
The modular design concept of the VLA Compact Series offers additional flexibility to vary the horizontal pattern within a vertical array by incorporating different modules with wider or narrower coverage patterns while still maintaining the vertical directivity. This provides the system designer the ability to build line array systems for large venue applications or to design smaller line array systems for use as distributed clusters in arenas, domed stadiums and larger performance spaces, including houses-of-worship.
VLA Compact is designed specifically for permanent installation applications requiring even coverage, high intelligibility and audio levels capable of overcoming crowd noise. As a fundamental design element, VLA Compact Series offers large format horn-loaded modules to provide broad bandwidth horizontal directivity and an increase in sensitivity. The full-range speakers include dual 2261 10” Differential Drive® 3” voice coil low frequency drivers, with 65° and 100° horizontal coverage options available. The VLA-C125S subwoofer has dual 2267H 15” Differential Drive® woofers. Enclosures feature multi-layer reinforced fiberglass and steel end-panels. Grilles are zinc plated, powder coated 14 gauge perforated steel with acoustically transparent black grill cloth backing and a hydrophobic mesh underlayer, waterproof rail system.
