Outline has introduced the Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. iMode Line Array powered speakers at InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Florida.
Located on Booth 683, Outline’s new line array enhances the firm’s COMpact Polar Adjustable Sound System technology by offering a streamlined, compact cabinet design that incorporates Outline’s iMode technology.
“Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. iMode is the most advanced system of its type on the market,” said Tom Bensen, senior vice-president and managing director of Outline North America. “Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. delivers a compact form, self powered, vertical line array system that is lightweight, easy to haul, easy to aim and contains not only a power amplifier, but the DSP engine iMode. Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. iMode receives its signal directly from the console without any outboard EQ, compression or crossover units. This saves on hauling, inventory and considerably streamlines system wiring. We believe Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. iMode will have a significant impact on the industry.”
Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. iMode is a self-powered, bi-amped loudspeaker cabinet used as a vertical line array (VLA) system. This compact loudspeaker system, weighing in at 52.9 lbs. (24 kg – with flying hardware), features two 1.75-inch compression drivers and four five-inch mid woofers to deliver a peak SPL of 141 dB @ 1 m with four enclosures, with a frequency response of 100 to 20kHz. The cabinet utilizes two of Outline’s Double Parabolic Reflective Wave Guides, a technology developed and patented by Outline for its Butterfly line array systems covering the high frequency section.
Mini-COM.P.A.S.S. iMode is stated by the company as being the only compact VLA with variable, asymmetrical horizontal directivity. Steps of 15 degrees can be manually set between 60 to 150 degrees, thus allowing the operator to direct sonic energy where it is required.
