Next-proaudio has launched the LA26 ultra-compact modular line source, with a long throw capability.

Next-proaudio LA26The LA26 is a two-way, full range passive line array cabinet housing two 6.5-inch neodymium Flat Diaphragm drivers located in the side walls of the HF Oblate Spheroidal Waveguide, a 2-inch diaphragm HF neodymium driver and a passive network crossover presenting a nominal input impedance of 16Ω. A fast and easy three-point auto-locking rigging mechanism is integrated for easy build of ground stacked or flown systems.

The waveguide and coplanar transducer configuration generates precisely coherent wavefronts uniformly spread in the horizontal plane (105°) and precisely coupled in the vertical plane without sacrificing HF presence in the far field, further eliminating the low-mid lobbing normally associated with two-way line source systems.

Measuring 498.5mm (19.6-invh) wide and weighting 15kg, the product’s form and flush-fitted rigging allow it to fit into any architecture, making it a natural element for installations in concert halls, theatres and special venues demanding minimum visual obstruction. The LA26 can also be used as touring sound reinforcement for small and medium-size venues, sports arenas, stadiums and corporate A/V events. It can be flown in arrays for use as a main system or configured as single cabinets or short stacks for use as front-fills and under-balcony-fills. Using an adaptive flying frame, the use of this system as a complement to larger LA systems becomes possible.

For low frequency extension the LAs15A active subwoofer or the LAs15 passive subwoofer can be used. Both models house a powerful 15-inch, long excursion 100mm (4in) voice coil speaker, operating from 38Hz to 200Hz and can be paired with LA26 cabinets via the integrated pole mount, ground-stacked, or flown.

The LAs15A (active) is powered by the DPA4000 power unit, capable of delivering 4kWrms with a precision and punch at high SPL, combining optimized acoustic, electro-acoustic and electronic solutions to maximise efficiency. Each LAs15A has a separate power output to power up to three LA26. Using the appropriate preset a cardioid system can be easily implemented. Besides this solution, the LA26 together with the LAs15 passive subwoofer, can be powered by the N-Rak, Next-proaudio’s new unified rack solution. The cabinets can be finished in a variety of colours to suit fixed installations.

‘Our LA26 is the smallest and lightest in the LA series keeping the elegance of LA Family,’ says Next-proaudio R&D Manager, Antonio Correia. ‘The new line array model is uniquely flexible, upgradeable, and financially accessible.’
