Grund Audio Design has expanded the Gala Series product line with the introduction of the GA-LC9 (passive) and GA-LC9P (powered) line source column loudspeakers, designed for both fixed installation and portable sound reinforcement applications for small to medium size spaces, including house of worship, education, and presentation facilities.
They will be on display at the upcoming InfoComm 2014 show in Las Vegas at booth C11240.
Manufactured in the USA, the GA-LC9 and GA-LC9P enclosures are manufactured with 13-ply Baltic Birch wood for superior cabinet rigidity. As a 2-way loudspeaker system, each enclosure utilizes nine 3.5-inch transducers. Frequency response is rated at 140 Hz – 20 kHz, while system coverage provides 120-degree vertical and 10 degree horizontal dispersion.
Pole mount adapters are included on both the enclosure’s top and bottom, making them a choice for use with the Grund Audio GT-LPB-24C companion subwoofer. Enclosures also include 2 x 2 flypoints for easy mounting, and are available in black or white paint as well as unfinished.
The passive GA-LC9 column line array is rated at 300/600 watts RMS/program. The GA-LC9P, with its integrated power amplifier, is rated at 350 watts RMS. A single LC9P can power one LC9, enabling one to eliminate the necessity of transporting a power amplifier when using these loudspeakers for portable PA applications.
Enclosures measure 32.63 x 5.38 x 6.75 inches (h x w x d), and weights are 15 pounds (passive) and 22 pounds (powered).
“Our new column line arrays address a myriad of portable and installed sound reinforcement applications,” says Frank Grund, president of Grund Audio. “These loudspeaker systems are easily transported, making them an excellent choice for gigging musicians. Similarly, they are ideal for hotels and convention facilities that frequently need to set up a PA system for various meetings, lectures, and other events.
“And as an installed sound product, they are very low profile and, hence, make a great choice for meeting rooms, lecture halls, and similar spaces. Being that we have both active and passive models, I’m confident these loudspeakers will find a home in a wide range of applications.”
Availability for the new GA-LC9 (passive) and GA-LC9P is June 2014.
