Peak Performance Power

Linea LX-220 is an extremely high performance, hybrid line source system incorporating state-of-the-art 4-way speaker technology. It combines innovative line array technology with elegant design. The system was specially developed to provide the best possible sound quality for speech and live music applications in challenging acoustic environments, as well as enabling effective integration into architectural surroundings.

18 x 4” high performance speakers arranged in a column, plus three 1” compression drivers with horn loaded Fohhn Waveguide system, produce a very direct, cylindrical beam characteristic. At the heart of these cylindrical waveforms, the sound pressure level remains much more constant over distance compared with conventional loudspeakers. This has a very positive effect on the overall sound coverage. What’s more, the sound reaches the audience more directly than with other conventional systems. Unwanted reflections from the ceiling or floor can be avoided, which greatly improves speech intelligibility especially in reverberant rooms. Using the LX-220, complex microphone set-ups can also be quickly and easily implemented. The inclusion of high quality aluminium housing and laminated speakers enables the unit to be used outside. For live applications, the LX-220 can be combined with Fohhn AS-22, AS-31, AS-40 or XS-22, XS-30 and XS-4 subwoofers.

Recommended amplifiers for the LX-220: Fohhn D-2.1500 or D-4.1200 DSP-controlled systems.

Applications
Ideal for fixed installation in churches, cathedrals, universities, conference rooms, halls, open air events etc.

Highly resilient 4-way line source speaker system in aluminum enclosure

Highly resilient, passive 4-way line source speaker system in aluminum enclosure, equipped with 18 high quality coated 4” drivers and three 1” drivers on a special horn loaded Waveguide. By using neodym chassis and an aluminum enclosure the speaker only weighs 16 kgs. Perfectly suited for dynamic music transmissions in rooms with demanding acoustics, long reverberation times and challenging architecture. The speaker is temporary able to work under 3600 W and generates acoustic pressure of maximal 131 dB. In a frequency range of 65 Hz to 20 kHz, the speaker has a precise and minimal-phase dispersion of 130° x 15° (h x v). Weatherproof, light aluminum enclosure with rounded sides, black or white powder coating. Optional available in all RAL Classic colours. For the protection of the speaker chassis and the electronics, the enclosure is equipped with a ball impact resistant, extremely sound-permeable front grille, which is made of powder-coated steel and equipped with a moisture- and dust repellent acoustic foam. The premium and complex crossover with an integrated electronic tweeter protection guarantees highest quality and operational reliability. 12 pieces M6 thread applications in ground, upper and rear side are integrated to the admission of system brackets. The loudspeaker system is optionally available with an integrated 100V-transformer up to 60 W. Connections: screw- and pluggable 8-pin Phoenix terminal strip. All contacts exist twice, to connect very easy and safe to the next speaker. Specific brackets to assemble the system on ceilings, walls, traverses and stands are optionally available. Simulation data CAAD for EASE are available.
