Council Bluffs, IA – InfoComm Booth C11240… Grund Audio Design, a pioneering manufacturer of loudspeaker and signal processing products for the audio professional, is pleased to announce the expansion of the Gala Series product line with the introduction of the GA-LC9 (passive) and GA-LC9P (powered) Column Line Arrays. Featuring a small footprint and lightweight design, the new GA-LC9 and GA-LC9P Column Line Arrays are ideal for both fixed installation and portable sound reinforcement applications for small to medium size spaces, including house of worship, education, and presentation facilities.
Manufactured in the USA, the GA-LC9 and GA-LC9P enclosures are manufactured with 13-ply Baltic Birch wood for superior performance and cabinet rigidity. As a 2-way loudspeaker system, each enclosure utilizes nine 3.5-inch transducers. Frequency response is rated at 140 Hz – 20 kHz while system coverage provides 120-degree vertical and 10 degree horizontal dispersion. These loudspeakers provide pole mount adapters on both the enclosure’s top and bottom—making them an excellent choice for use with the Grund Audio Design GT-LPB-24C companion subwoofer. Further, these loudspeakers include 2 x 2 flypoints for easy mounting. The enclosures are available in black or white paint as well as unfinished.
The passive GA-LC9 column line array is rated at 300 / 600 watts RMS / Program. The GA-LC9P, with its integrated power amplifier, is rated at 350 watts RMS. Of particular note, a single LC9P can power one LC9—enabling one to eliminate the necessity of transporting a heavy power amplifier when using these loudspeakers for portable PA applications. Dimensions for the Grund Audio Design GA-LC9 and GA-LC9P are (H x W D): 32.63 x 5.38 x 6.75 inches. The weights are 15 lbs. and 22 lbs. respectively.
Frank Grund, President of Grund Audio Design, commented on the company’s GA-LC9 (passive) and GA-LC9P (powered) Column Line Arrays, “Our new column line arrays address a myriad of portable and installed sound reinforcement applications. These loudspeaker systems are easily transported—making them an excellent choice for gigging musicians. Similarly, they are ideal for hotels and convention facilities that frequently need to set up a PA system for various meetings, lectures, and other events. And as an installed sound product, they are very low profile and, hence, make a great choice for meeting rooms, lecture halls, and similar spaces. Being that we have both active and passive models, I’m confident these loudspeakers will find a home in a wide range of applications.”
