San Diego, CA (July 1, 2014)—Vue Audiotechnik debuted its latest addition to its al-Class line array family during InfoComm 2014: the al-4-sb Flyable Isobaric Subwoofer.
Designed specifically for integration with the al-4 Subcompact Line Array System, the al-4-sb features rigging options for suspension above or behind al-4 arrays in a variety of configurations. Vue also produces a flyable end fire grid that allows assembly of al-4-sb end-fire arrays for improved directionality and reduced low frequency energy on stage.
The birch enclosure features recessed handles and skids for transport and stacking. Integrated rigging allows assembly of ground-stacked arrays, while a 20 mm socket accommodates up to four al-4 acoustic elements on a pole with the optional U-bracket.
At the heart of the al-4-sb are two 15-inch transducers that feature neodymium magnets and large 4-inch (100 mm) diameter voice coils for high power handling and reduced power compression. The transducers are placed in a front-to-front, isobaric configuration.
The al-4-sb is designed to work with Vue’s V4 and V6 System Engines, and DSP profiles are available for various al-4-sb configurations. V Series amplification provides power for as many as four al-4-sb subwoofers with the V4, and up to eight with the V6.
