LD Systems launches Stinger G3 Series
Third generation of the multi-functional range comprises active and passive speaker cabinets in a number of formats, as well as two 15in and 18in subs.
The Adam Hall Group has unveiled the new Stinger G3 Series from LD Systems, the third generation of its multi-functional full-range speakers and subwoofers.
The new range comprises active and passive speaker cabinets in 8in, 10in, 12in and 15in formats, as well as two 15in and 18in subwoofers, available in active or passive versions.
The dispersion characteristic of the full range speakers has been further optimised in the high frequency range. During the development and optimisation of the horns, the Boundary Element Method (BEM) was used, and the distance between the tweeter drivers and woofers has been minimised to avoid partial drop-outs caused by comb filter effects.
All active speakers are equipped with powerful class D amplifiers while DynX DSP technology ensures ‘crystal clear sound’, according to the company. With their four presets (full range, satellite, monitor, flat), the speakers can be optimised for the desired application at the touch of a button.
In addition to three different high-cut filters, the active Stinger G3 subwoofer’s DSP presets also feature a cardioid preset. By combining three Stinger G3 subs of the same design, a cardioid dispersion characteristic is achieved with this circuitry, offering a number of advantages over conventional subwoofer setups.
Dual-Tilt stand attachments, flight points, stack moulds and ergonomic handles make the new range ideally suited for professional artists, distributors and fixed installations. Accessories include mounting hardware, padded protective covers and a stackable roll board for easy transport. The system’s abrasion and impact resistant polyurea plastic coating also guarantees longevity, especially during mobile use.
Pro audio product manager, Viktor Wiesner, commented: “The new Stinger G3 series speakers are highly professional PA solutions and reliable tools for the professional user. LD Systems has incorporated numerous unique technical features into these new developments and in doing so has improved the sound even further.”
