Outline has added to its Stadia series of loudspeaker systems
Stadia 28 is the latest addition to Outline’s Stadia family of loudspeaker systems designed for large sports venues and arenas. It is a medium-throw, constant curvature array enclosure weighing 21kg and capable of a peak SPL of 139dB. It features the same weather protection and audio quality as the rest of the products in the range but is better suited for smaller venues and provides users with a more cost-effective solution for locations that don’t require the power of its larger siblings. It can be arrayed in either vertical or horizontal orientation, with only six cabinets required to provide 150° coverage in both deployments.
Meanwhile, the L3000 freestanding, high-powered, multi-mode power amplifier has also made its debut. It has been designed for applications where it’s not possible to use 19-inch racks; however, if rack mounting is required, two L3000s can be mounted using a dedicated Outline kit. The Class-D design includes two inputs and four outputs, able to operate in single-channel mode (four 750W at 4Ω) and bridge mode (either two 1,500W at 8Ω or one 1,500W at 8Ω and two 750W at 4Ω). On-board DSP provides a range of amplifier controls and its universal regulated switch mode power supply reportedly allows the amp to function on various input voltages and mains cycles globally. It is presented in the same wood finish as Outline’s touring speakers.
