The hd ML16
LineArray Stick is equipped with sixteen 2″ broadband speakers. The elegant round speaker housing made of aluminum allows a particularly high packing density of the speakers. Therefore, the 16 drivers couple to a 15° vertically opening wavefront that the system operates on the principle of the cylindrical wave. The result is a consistent sound pressure level and nuanced sound from the first to the last row. The precise horizontal beam angle of 100° allows a direct alignment of the sound to the audience without unwanted reflections of walls or windows. This leads to more direct sound, offers a higher speech intelligibility and a high feedback safety in acoustically problematic rooms, with lower basic volume. Therefore, the hd ML column speakers are ideal for voice and music transmission in halls, clubs and churches.
In order to transmit a sound event from the fundamental to the overtones, conventional loudspeakers use two or three different types of transducers. This results in incoherence not only in the crossover areas, but also in the important mid-frequency-range due to the different decay times and the different diaphragm mass of the transducers types in a different “response characteristic”. Especially in the reproduction of instruments or speech in which the fundamental range is covered by the one type of transducer and the overtone range by the other type of transducer, the sound is distorted. Here, the consistent 1-way design of the hd ML-Series column speakers offers clear advantages: the full-range speakers, which reproduce the fundamental tone range up to the overtone range, combined with the arrangement as a LineSource, makes the reproduction a first-class listening experience.
The continuous metal rail for M6 square nuts on the back allows any mounting of wall brackets or a tiltable tripod adapter. On the bottom there is a built-in 35mm flange. A high quality powder coating of the aluminum tube and a protective grille with internal acoustic foam guarantees the roadworthiness of the hd ML-Series. For safe transport, we offer a custom-made nylon carrying case with full zip, a handle and shoulder strap.
