LA (Line Array)

SoundTube Line Arrays are anything but typical. They are advanced LAPS (Line Array-Point Source) 3-way designs that provide a very short near-field extent and robust far-field performance. Frequency tapering of low and mid frequency pass bands allows for a consistent ratio of array height to radiated wavelength, ensuring a stable vertical beamwidth that out-performs many other single box line arrays. Soundtube’s LAPS technology makes the near-field shorter than most other line arrays. Because its effective line length is kept relatively constant as a function of frequency, the near-field to far-field transition occurs at only 3 meters from the speaker. Beyond this distance, there is no change in the frequency response or the directivity pattern of the speaker (40 x 120 degrees).

LA880i

3-Way Line Array
Featuring eight 4.5-inch woofers, eight 2-inch midrange drivers and one 2.5-inch planar magnetics (ribbon) high frequency driver for extremely smooth high frequency response, the LA880i achieves superb coverage in an enclosure measuring only 7.91” x 40.87” x 11.99”. Numerous mounting options allow the use of the LA880i on walls, near ceilings, on poles, or suspended via cables. 3-way line array featuring 8 low-frequency drivers, 8 mid-range units, and a high power-handling ribbon tweeter. Constant directivity of 40×120 degrees with consistent frequency response throughout the coverage area. LAPS (Line Array-Point Source) technology provides near-field to far-field transition in only 3 meters....

LA880i with LA808i

Optional Addition to LA880i
Additional low frequency directivity can be achieved with the addition of the LA808i LFDE (Low Frequency Directivity Element). NOT a subwoofer, the LA808i adds eight 4.5-inch woofers to the system to extend the directivity control by up to an octave lower in frequency than with the LA880i alone. Its use is recommended in areas with a high reverberation time....

XT-SPYKE

XT-SPYKE
The SoundTube XT-Spyke is not a typical line array column loudspeaker. It is an advanced LAPS (Line Array-Point Source) 2-way design that provides a very short near-field extent and robust far-field performance. Frequency tapering of low and high frequency pass bands allows the XTSpyke to maintain a more consistent ratio of array height to radiated wavelength, ensuring a stable vertical beamwidth that out-performs many other single box line arrays. Featuring eight 3.0-inch woofers and eight 1-inch high frequency drivers for extremely smooth high frequency response, the XT-Spyke achieves superb coverage in an enclosure measuring only 37.37” x 6.80” x 5.50”....
