Waterford, MI (August 8, 2005)–ISP Technologies unveiled the first in its series of ground-stackable line array systems, the Mongoose GSL12, at the Summer NAMM show. The ISP Technologies GSL12 speakers are a 3-way active speaker system with high output and low distortion.
The Mongoose system comprises two boxes, which are stacked to form a 4-element line. The bottom box contains two vertically arrayed, high performance 12-inch speakers and two amplifier modules, which contain 5 channels of amplification and an optimized electronic crossover. The top box contains two more 12-inch speakers, a horn-loaded compression midrange, and two high frequency drivers. The two boxes are interconnected by an 8-pole Speakon cable. Use with subwoofers is highly recommended.
These two-box stacks are sold in mirror-image pairs, but can be easily expanded for larger crowd coverage. The system can be expanded to 4 boxes per side by placing a right top upside down on a left top (and vice-versa), thereby aligning the LF, MF, and HF lines. The 2 box per side version has 1700 watts rms, while the 4 box version has 3400 watts rms. The system has tight vertical dispersion and is recommended for venues without a large elevation and which cover vertical angles of 18 degrees or less.
Use of a horn-loaded MF compression driver results in top-quality midrange clarity and throw, while use of 1-inch HF compression drivers results in extended highs and wide horizontal dispersion. These compression drivers are of the very highest sensitivity (>110 dB/1W/1m). Standard with the system is a built-in 5-channel, 1700-Watt rms (total) amplifier/electronic crossover that is specifically designed for use with the speaker. This amplifier features ISP’s patent pending DCAT high-current amplification technology. A cooling fan automatically switches on when needed.
The Mongoose GSL12 is constructed in 18mm Baltic birch and covered in a spray on Vortex tough coat finish. These portable and expandable line array boxes have applications in many venues including clubs, Houses of Worship, at corporate events and outside events.
