Orlando, FL (June 13, 2013)—Outline, S.r.l., has debuted its GTO C-12 Line Source Array Speaker System to the North American market at InfoComm 2013.
The GTO C-12 is derived from Outline’s larger-format, dual-15-inch GTO cabinet introduced in 2011; although physically smaller and 30 percent lighter, it is intended for use in theaters and arenas. Says Tom Bensen, senior vice president and managing director of Outline North America, “We engineered the GTO C-12 specifically to deliver high SPL with a sonic accuracy rivaling a recording studio environment for the smaller venue. The system is more lightweight than competing systems on the market, combining superior performance with ease of setup and hauling. The GTO C-12 will definitely find a home with permanent installation venues, sound companies and touring bands and shows.”
Incorporating its V-Power Concept and patented DPRWG Wave Guide, the GTO C-12 contains dual high-power 12-inch LF drivers, four 6.5-inch midrange units and two 3-inch throat-compression drivers. The cabinet is 21.6 percent smaller in the vertical plane than the larger GTO, whereas the overall cabinet weight has been reduced by 30 percent. The use of a special aluminum alloy for the integral rigging hardware, originally developed by Outline for GTO, contributes to this major weight savings. The system also provides 12 different adjustment settings in the angle between connected GTO C-12 cabinets.
As the footprint of the new C-12 is exactly the same as all the other modules in the GTO range, the cabinets offer full mechanical compatibility with GTO, GTO-SUB, GTO-LOW and GTO-DF in terms of rigging, flying hardware and wheelboards. Further, Outline’s design team is currently developing a new lightweight flybar for the GTO C-12, which will allow up to 12 GTO C-12 cabinets to be flown from a single one-ton fly point while staying within standard Safe Working Load restrictions.
