The TouringLine Compact extends applicability of line array technology to fields, in which a
discreet appearance, good throw range and even coverage is demanded, but the extreme output of the larger TouringLine is not necessary.
The result is a loudspeaker system which offers the great handling of the TouringLine, but occupies only half of the volume and weight. Its sonic quality predestines the TouringLine Compact for theatre, cinema and TV studios, but due to its great performance the use for „a little louder“ concerts and dance events is also possible
The TouringLine Compact incorporates two 6.5“ neodymium low mid speakers and one 1.4“ neodymium high frequency compression driver in a extremely compact, Polyurea coated enclosure. The physical spacing of the sources has been optimized as such, that a very homogeneous directivity pattern is achieved.
The two low mid speakers are flanking the high frequency wave guide at both sides and are coupled to the surrounding via short horn flares and phase plugs. In this way it was possible to reduce the spacing of the virtual sources to an absolute minimum, to add some sensitivity and to optimize the crossover frequency.
The high frequency wave guide has been designed by using the latest BEM (boundary element method) techniques and generates a planar wavefront up to 16 kHz. Corresponding with the TouringLineCompact‘s field of application a module splay of up to 15° is possible. Its ultra compact latest generation 1.4“ neodymium compression driver offers the necessary headroom easily.
Both ways are combined in correct phase through a complex, passive crossover network. The nominal system impedance of 12 Ohms enables the powering of up to twelve modules at a modern two channel amplifier. Our AD-Systems Impuls system amplifiers are offering all necessary signal processing ensuring maximum operational safety and first class sound quality.
As with the TouringLine also the TouringLine Compact uses the proven and excellently to handle „Quick-Rig“ system. The rigging of the less than 15 kilogrammes weighting modules can be done by a single person. By applying highly loadable T6 almuminium hardware it was possible to certify the safe rigging of up to 16 modules according to the strict BGV C1 requirements.
For easy and secure transportation an optional Tourcase is offered, which takes up four elements including a rigging bumper. The Tourcase‘s outer dimensions are fit to the Euro-Pallet standard trucking grid.
