SoundTube Entertainment has released the LA880i-II and LA808i-II line array speakers in white with an updated aluminium casing. The new array aesthetic was initially introduced in 2021.
SoundTube LA880i-II’s proprietary LAPS (Line Array-Point Source) three-way design provides a very short near-field extent and hearty far-field performance to create clear and concise sound. The LA880i-II maintains a more consistent ratio of array height to radiated wavelength with frequency tapering of low and mid-frequency passbands, ensuring a stable vertical beam width that out-performs many other single box line arrays. Measuring only 7.91in x 40.87in x 11.99in, the LA880i-II achieves superb coverage in an aluminium enclosure. It features eight 4.5in woofers, eight 2in midrange drivers and one 2.5in planar magnetic ribbon high-frequency tweeter for a smooth high-frequency response. This high-performance speaker is not your typical line array column.
“Our commercial and pro AV customers needing public announcement and sound reinforcement solutions have been asking for a white version of our line array speakers. The trim and sleek look of the new extruded aluminium cabinet will make a beautiful addition for contemporary spaces,” says Michael Sipe, Vice President of Sales. “The LA880i-II and LA808i-II line array speakers are perfect for applications requiring well-defined audio for large groups in corporate, classroom and higher education, theatre, music and spoken word.”
SoundTube’s LA808i-II is designed to extend low frequency vertical directivity from 500Hz to 200Hz when added to the LA880i-IIline array which eliminates reverberation issues and makes low frequency audio clearer. Identical in size to the LA880i-II, it can be used only in conjunction with the LA880i-II line array either placed directly above or below it.
The LA880i-II and LA808i-II line array speakers are now available to ship in both black and white.
