With traditional line array, the aim is to produce coherent sound waves as they exit the speaker – giving the user little control over what actually arrives at the audience. MLA takes the opposite approach and puts the audience at the heart of its thinking.

The user specifies exactly what SPL and frequency response is required at various points throughout the venue and intelligent software automatically determines the array configuration and controls each of the individual cells in the array to produce that result. With independent control of every cell in the array, MLA is not constrained by the 3dB decrease in SPL with doubling of distance associated with conventional line arrays. Instead, the frequency response and SPL’s at the rear seats closely track the front rows. With every cell under computer control, ‘hard avoid’ areas ─ such as on stage and beyond the venue perimeter ─ can be programmed in, and vertical coverage can be fine-tuned electronically.

MLA banishes trial-and-error set-up forever — there is no more need for educated guesswork, MLA employs a precise science that guarantees greater control, consistency, and unparalleled acoustic sonic quality.
