MSE Audio’s SoundTube updates its line array speakers
MSE Audio has released an updated casing for the SoundTube LA880i-II and LA808i-II line array speakers. There are no acoustic changes but they now come with an aluminium cabinet for a contemporary look and cleaner aesthetic.
“SoundTube’s LA880i-II and LA808i-II line array speakers have a new, sleek look. The new aluminium cabinet enhances the speakers’ looks, blending in modern spaces seamlessly,” MSE Audio vice president, sales Mike Sipe says.
“The speakers continue to be ideal for PA and sound reinforcement applications for large groups of people, such as large houses of worship, university lecture halls, transportation centres such as train platforms, and airport terminals.”
Recommended in spaces that have a large reverberation time, the SoundTube LA808i is designed to increase the directivity of low frequencies in SoundTube’s Line Array system.
With identical dimensions to those of the LA880i, it can be used only in conjunction with the LA880i 3-way line array and placed directly above or below the LA880i (or both). When a single unit is added to the LA880i, the directivity of low frequencies is increased by up to an octave lower than with the LA880i alone. Coverage Angle: (-6 dB @ 2 kHz) 103 horizontal, 29 vertical | (-6 dB @ 10 kHz) 77 horizontal, 51 vertical | (Avg. 2 to 10 kHz) 90 horizontal, 60 vertical (200-10k).
The LA880i-II and LA808i-II line array speakers are currently available in black, with plans to release a white version at a future date.
