Articulation extension is a special process which compensates for the non-linear loss of high-frequency transients as sound travels through air. Refreshing these transients is essential to maintaining speech intelligibility throughout a larger venue. When properly applied in conjunction with correct signal delay, articulation extenders bring face-to-face speech clarity out to every seat in a room.
Available in the pre-configured coverage patterns: 20°V, 35°V, and 50°V x 120°H, they address most of the larger venue install projects typically encountered by sound system designers.
HLA-XT Arrays employ the same HF/MF modules and coverage patterns as are used in HLA Hybrids but without the dipole LF drivers which are not usually needed. This provides a much slimmer visual profile which is more acceptable to architects and interior designers and helps in gaining their approval to place arrays exactly where they need to be.
DSP processing and power for HLA-XT arrays are available in the Innovox CA-2 surface-mount amplifier.
