The XLD 281 is the core element for constructing X-Line Very Compact systems. The XLD281 is a 3 –way design using CCT™ (Coverage Control Technology) to control horizontal coverage to 250Hz. It uses a 8" neodymium LF transducer, a 8" neodymium LF/MB transducer, and two neodymium 2" voice coil compression drivers combining through 2 hydra plane wave generators into a 120° x 10° waveguide. CCT uses both 8" transducers to provide maximum low frequency output and operating bandwidth while controlling horizontal beam width to 250 Hz by using DSP. The XLD281 can be used in tri-amp mode, or in bi-amp using a sophisticated internal passive network. Designed for use in arrays of four or more elements the XLD281 delivers full bandwidth audio with precise, predictable coverage control. Integrated rigging with hinge points located correctly between array elements is simple to use and quickly provides uncompromised line array performance. Ground stacking is easily done using array rails or subwoofers as the array base.
