Next Generation Mini Line Array Systems

>Description<
Linea LX-100 is a compact Mini Line Array System, specially designed to give top quality reproduction of both, speech and music. The elegant, lightweight speakers can be installed and set up in minutes. The system has proved popular with sound engineers, musicians and DJs on account of their excellent sound quality, even coverage and lack of feedback. The speakers’ slim, unobtrusive design integrates seamlessly into stage areas and room architecture, appealing to event organizers, agencies and audiences.
In the LX-100 eight 4” neodymium drivers produce sound with accurate cylindrical dispersion characteristics in the mid-low range. At the top end an 1” compression driver with Fohhn® Waveguide ensures the cylindrical wave’s continuation up to the highest audible frequencies. Speaker adjustment is done by an integrated crossover with Intelligent Protection Circuit (IPC) to guard against overload.

Our engineering team developed the unique Fohhn Hybrid Line Array principle by combining, for the first time ever, high performance bass-mid speakers and 1” compression drivers with a Waveguide system. The result – a new generation of high powered Mini Line Array Systems. The Fohhn Hybrid principle has led to the achievement of outstanding sound quality in speech and music, superb dynamics and even coverage of audience areas.
The LX-100 is fully compatible with the Fohhn system concept. The LX-100 can be effectively teamed with the AS-10, AS-20, AS-30 or XS-10, XS-20, XS-30 subwoofer.
PC datenfiles for the simulation programms ULYSSES and EASE are available.

In 2009 our Linea Live III system won a “Tastenwelt” Readers’ Award. Since then, both press and end users have referred to us as the “innovative Mini Line Array System specialists”.

>Accessories for professional live applications<
- Mobile applications
Stand adapter, speaker stands, distance piece. Attaching the Linea LX system to a speaker stand or distance piece using the optional SA-6 stand adapter requires only a few moves. The sound is directed straight onto the audience. The angle of the Linea LX system can be adjusted in increments of 3.8° and locked. For maximum sound quality and speech intelligibility. We also offer robust padded carrier bags for transporting the Linea LX system (with stand adapter attached). These bags provide adequate protection for your equipment.

- Flown applications
The SA-7 adapter is perfect for setting up safe flown applications. Linea LX systems can be secured to vertical or horizontal supporting members. The adapter SA-7 consists of an articulated fixture with TV spigot that can be locked at 3.8° increments. You can set up safe, flown applications by attaching the Linea LX system to the supporting member using an optional clamp, half coupler or similar item.

>Controlling Linea LX speakers<
We always integrate a sophisticated passive crossover with electronic high-frequency protection so you can operate the LX-100 with any professional amplifier. For maximum sound performance and operating reliability, we recommend our digital DSP amplifiers (e.g. D-2.750, D-4.750 or D-2.1500). Its integrated DSP technology includes a number of factory loudspeaker presets. These guarantee total operating reliability and superb performance at any sound pressure level. Programmable audio tools, such as the 10-band parametric EQ, enable quick adjustments to suit the room acoustic and any related microphone set-ups. All DSP functions can be carried out remotely using a laptop.

>DSP technology<
Fohhn® DSP processor technology modulates the Linea LX-100 and Fohhn subwoofers perfectly. Digital Fohhn signal processors are integral components of active Fohhn subwoofers, Fohhn DSP amplifiers and Fohhn DSP controllers. DSP-controlled Fohhn devices can be controlled remotely from a central location in the room or on the stage via intuitive remote control units. Fohhn therefore offers a perfectly adapted sound system that fulfils all the requirements of a modern speaker system regarding design, sound quality and operating comfort in every respect.

>Fohhn® Hybrid Line Array technology.<

Fohhn® Linea Live Systems redefine the concept of balanced sound, excellent sound quality and sophisticated design.
Fohhn’s specially developed Hybrid Line Array Technology integrates high performance, vertically aligned loudspeakers and powerful high frequency drivers with Waveguide in a compact housing. Systems from the Fohhn Linea LX series have a hybrid design that is based on a combination of classic two-way speakers and modular line array, and incorporates the functional advantages of both principles.

For many years we have carried out research and development in the field of high powered Mini Line Array Systems. Our original aim was to take the benefits associated with large modular line array systems such as directionality, even coverage, long throw and transport them into more compact, easy to install systems. We successfully achieved our aim in 2006 with the release of our Linea-Series. By 2007 our Linea LX systems had set new standards for line source column speakers. Our engineering team developed the unique Fohhn Hybrid Line Array principle by combining, for the first time ever, high performance bass-mid speakers and 1” compression drivers with a Waveguide system. The result – a new generation of high powered Mini Line Array Systems. The Fohhn Hybrid principle has led to the achievement of outstanding sound quality in speech and music, superb dynamics and even coverage of audience areas.

Linea LX: An overview of the main advantages

  • First-class sound with excellent dynamics

    Whether used for full-on live music and DJ events, or for demanding speech applications, Linea LX systems guarantee superb sound quality at any loudspeaker level.

     

  • Even sound distribution with Fohhn Hybrid Line Array Technology

    Compared with conventional systems, sound is distributed much more evenly throughout the room, with a pleasing effect at the front and clear, coherent sound right at the back.

     

  • Superb speech intelligibility

    Sound can be specifically targeted towards the audience, avoiding unwanted reflections from the ceiling or floor. For the listener, the result is clear and pleasant. Speech intelligibility is considerably improved.

     

  • Perfect integration into room architecture and stage designs


    The elegant designer speakers integrate extraordinarily well into their surroundings. They won‘t interfere with either stage designs or camera shots.

     

  • Disturbance-free listening

    Feedback is rarely an issue, even with complex microphone set-ups.

     

  • Easier transportation and quicker set-up

    Linea LX speakers are equipped with state-of-the-art, lightweight neodymium loudspeaker technology. Conveniently positioned handles ensure quick and safe set-up. The speakers’ compact dimensions reduce the amount of space needed for storage and transportation.

     

  • No need for expensive rigging or curving.
