Representing the latest addition to QSC’s WideLine family of sound reinforcement components, the new Installation Line Array (ILA) is now shipping.
Central to meeting the high sonic standards set for each ILA loudspeaker is a unique two-and-a-half-way design employing a pair of 8-inch drivers with 2-inch voice coils and neodymium magnets. Both of these woofers provide low frequencies, but only one operates in the midrange, thereby providing far better directivity control in the crossover region.
At the high end, a pair of titanium-dome, neodymium compression drivers with 1.75-inch voice coils and 1-inch exits are mounted on a multiple aperture diffraction waveguide. In combination, these elements deliver extremely wide coverage (140 degrees) that preserves solid stereo imaging throughout the listening area while rarely requiring the use of side or centerfills.
Operable in bi-amp or tri-amp modes, ILA loudspeaker systems are geared for both speech and music applications. For installations requiring extended low-frequency response, a companion subwoofer (model WL115-sw) is also offered. Like the full-range ILA enclosures, the WL115-sw comes with its own rigging hardware to accommodate flown applications.
