XLE181-FG

Fiberglass 2- way, high-output, very compact line-array element

  • Very Compact, Lightweight
  • Simple, Quick Integrated Rigging
  • 120° Horizontal Coverage
  • Bi-Amp or Full-Range Operation
  • Neodymium Transducers

The XLE181-FG is a 2–way using a single 8 inch neodymium LF transducer and two neodymium 2 inch voice coil compression drivers combining through 2 hydra plane wave generators into a 120° x 10° waveguide. The FG models are fully-weatherized and fiberglass-coated. The XLE181-FG can be used in biamp or full-range modes using a sophisticated internal passive network. It is designed for use in arrays of four or more elements. The XLE181-FG 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.

The XLVC weatherized family consists of two full-range systems with dual woofers, two full-range systems with single woofers and a subwoofer system. The dualwoofer versions include the XLD281-FG with a 120° horizontal coverage pattern and the XLD291-FG with a 90° horizontal coverage pattern. The single woofer versions include the XLE181-FG with a 120° horizontal coverage pattern and the XLE191-FG with a 90° horizontal coverage pattern. LAPS2 modeling software quickly provides array configurations and rigging information.

X-Line Very Compact weatherized models deliver unprecedented performance in outdoor venues in full exposure.
