The new series of LINEAR 9 loudspeaker systems brings together the latest in audio technology and the evolved needs of professional audio companies. These user requirements are reflected in every detail of the new LINEAR 9 family: high-grade speaker components, custom-designed acoustic transformers and horns, birch multiplex enclosures with PU coating, latest generation class-D power amps, high-performance digital controllers, advanced networkability, professional PowerCon adaptors and the manufacturing in St. Wendel (Germany) sum up to an extraordinarily efficient and value-preserving alternative in its class.
The flagship model of the new LINEAR 9 family is the 210 LTA, a fully integrated and scalable constant curvature point source speaker with exceptional long throw abilities. Based on the proprietary HK AUDIO transformer design method, the Multicell Transformer provides an accurate 60° x 25° sound dispersion above 1.35 kHz and can easily be rotated by 90°. The LINEAR 9 210 LTA delivers stunning results when used individually for pinpoint coverage of even distant areas or as a horizontal cluster in large venues, tents or open-air events. The 210 LTA also offers various options for groundstacking and rigging.
Equipped with the same DSP controller as the 210 LTA, the LINEAR 9 110 XA and 112 XA models are remarkably compact multi-functional loudspeakers designed to serve perfectly the daily changing requirements of professional sound companies: as low-profile stage monitors, as a small FOH solution on a tripod, as front fills, flown in a rig or as mid-high units in combination with subwoofers.
The LINEAR 9 family is completed by two high-profile subwoofers, each providing a highly effective but easy-to-use cardioid functionality. The 118 Sub A combines a well-defined bass foundation with the utmost compactness and transportability. Its bigger brother, the 118 Sub BA, features a band-pass design for an extended bass range and a higher SPL. The two subwoofers are tuned so that they can be used together without any problems.
All LINEAR 9 loudspeakers share the same type of digital controller. It provides a catalogue of remote control functions such as grouping, volume control, 10-band EQ, Limiter, Delay and full networkability (Controller software available for MacOS and Windows). The ‘DSP-OUT’ on every LINEAR 9 model is an exclusive feature enabling loudspeakers without built-in controllers, such as the LINEAR 5 series, to be fully integrated in a LINEAR 9 network.
The LINEAR 9 series will be delivered at the market launch and will be available from 1499,00 € (RRP).
