Line 6 Inc. in Calabasas, Calif., announces the availability of StageSource L3m, a compact, full-range three-way speaker system. StageSource loudspeaker systems are built on technology that enables a single enclosure to perform in multiple live sound functions.
StageSource L3m features heavy-duty plywood construction, durable fitments, a steel grille with a protective screen backing, four M10 suspension points, and a pull-back for install scenarios.
Using L6 LINK digital networking and six Smart Speaker modes, the L3m optimizes its output for front-of-house P.A., floor monitor, personal P.A., keyboard and acoustic guitar back-line, or with Line 6 POD multi-effects processors as a high-performance electric guitar speaker system. Smart Speaker modes can be set manually or automatically via built-in orientation sensors that detect whether the speaker has been pole-mounted or rotated and tilted for use as a monitor.
Line 6 states that the StageSource L3m’s tri-amped design delivers 1,400 watts of balanced, clean and articulate audio through dual 10-inch woofers and a horn-loaded, 1-inch exit compression driver that combine to deliver 132dB maximum SPL. A precision-engineered 100×50-degree constant-directivity waveguide is said to deliver consistent coverage throughout its entire frequency range and optimal dispersion throughout the audience area, wide enough for solo use yet controlled enough for arrayed pairs. The narrow vertical pattern ensures minimal energy is reflected off the ceilings and floors.
