    We define “medium format” line arrays as those with 10-inch low-frequency drivers, and we’ve created “small” and “compact” format categories for models with more miniscule LF drivers. This is a somewhat arbitrary definition, but no more so than the various designations that manufacturers use for their loudspeaker/line array systems—one entity’s “miniature” is another’s “mid-size” and so on.
