The 12XTi from L-Acoustics features a coaxially loaded 3in. diaphragm compression high driver by a 12in. low-frequency transducer, which provides 90-degree axisymmetric coverage. The frequency response is 55Hz to 20kHz with a maximum SPL of 133dB. The wedge-shaped cabinet provides for a 30- or 60-degree angle for application as a stage monitor.
The StageSource L3t from Line 6 is a three-way, tri-amped loudspeaker incorporating six DSP Smart Speaker modes and an internal accelerometer. Optical sensors detect setup configuration and then automatically adjust performance parameters for the system. The system uses dual 10in. woofers and a 1in. exit high-frequency compression driver for 132dB maximum SPL and 100-degree x 50-deree coverage.
Mackie’s diminutive DLM12 comprises a 12in. low-frequency driver and a 1.75in. compression high-frequency driver. It features an integrated digital mixer with OLED screen, two inputs, three band EQ, 16 effects, and six speaker modes. The system can be pole-mounted, rigged via the M10 hardware, wall-mounted with an accessory articulated arm, or used as a monitor with the integrated kickstand. Frequency response is 38Hz to 20kHz, and maximum SPL is 128dB.
Martin Audio features the Blackline X15+ is a two-way system incorporating a 15in. low-frequency driver and a 1.4in. exit compression driver mounted on a rotatable 80-degree by 50-degree constant directivity horn. Switchable to either passive or bi-amp operation, the maximum peak SPL is 133dB, and the frequency response is 55Hz to 18kHz. The system may be rigged via 15 M8 threaded inserts or mounted using the 35mm pole-mount socket.
The Meyer Sound wide-coverage UPQ-1P provides 100-degree by 60-degree coverage and an operating frequency range of 55Hz to 18kHz with a maximum SPL of 136dB. The low-frequency section comprises a 15in. driver, and the highs use a 4in. diaphragm compression driver. The two-channel complementary MOSFET Class AB/H amplifier provides a total of 2,550W peak output.
Mipro’s MA-303 personal wireless PA system comes in two versions: with either one or two wireless receivers. Other features common to both include a 5in. woofer and 1in. tweeter driven by a Class D amplifier; two power modes, either AC or rechargeable battery with up to 11 hours of standby time with a four-hour charge; built-in USB music player and recorder; line input; and mic input. The wireless receivers feature 16 preset scannable frequencies and one-touch scan and ACT sync.
The J-15M from Nady Systems offers 30-degree or 45-degree placement angles for use as a floor monitor, a 90-degree angle for placement on a shelf, and stand-mounted or upright for FOH applications. The 15in. low-frequency and 1in. titanium high-frequency drivers provide a frequency response of 30Hz to 20kHz with a coverage of 125 degrees.
