The X1-212/120 is two-way vertical line-array loudspeaker element providing 120-degree horizontal coverage, expanding the flexibility of the X-Line Advance family.

It is ideal for use as a wide-coverage system in permanent installations using all 120-degree elements, or as the near-field element in a combined line array positioned below 90-degree elements in either passive or bi-amplified mode.

The X-Line Advance family is designed for a wide variety of applications where wide bandwidth, vertical and horizontal directivity control, and high efficiency are required in a compact, cost-effective package.
