Steeped in classic Italian design and acoustic expertise, VERTUShas been created with the aim of extending true line array technology, an undisputed success in the field of professional audio, into a new range of applications within both the live and fixed installation fields. The column system is compact and elegant, with a refined yet functional design. Most importantly it offers an uncompromising quality capable of successfully solving applications where conventional systems are inadequate.
Compared to a traditional two-way speaker, the sound is distributed in a much more uniform manner into the listening area, regardless of whether the application is indoors, outdoors or acoustically difficult in terms of reverberation. The cylindrical wave front of the CLA projects sound forwards in a very precise and coherent fashion without the reverberant performance that is typical of conventional speakers which can excite environmental reflections, directing acoustic energy where it is not needed, especially towards the ceiling and floor. Even acoustic feedback such as that generated by microphones is rejected to a far greater extent than a conventional enclosure.
Finally, the columns narrow dimensions allow the discreet, unobtrusive integration of the column into any environment.
The qualities of the system CLA can be summarized as:
- High-end sound quality with a frequency response of 33Hz to 20kHz, designed specifically for live
- Improved dispersion within a set listening area plus extended projection
- High power performance and dynamic range thanks to the tri-amplification system
- Portability and modularity – elements can be rapidly daisy-chained via a quick release system, extending both the vertical directivity and sound pressure level
- Design and elegance for easy integration even in the most demanding installations – the compact dimensions ensure listeners will focus on the sound and not the speaker!
- Wide horizontal dispersion
