The Ikarray-12 is a 2-way bi-amping full-range line array with high-quality 12"/1.4" neodymium components. This lightweight, compact unit with many intelligent detail solutions is suited for everything from small events up to large venues with many thousand listeners.
Much emphasis has been placed on constant directivity and linear frequency response even outside the mid-axis. This has been achieved on the horizontal level with one 12-incher, single mounted to give a wide dispersion without restrictions such as those caused when two transducers are placed next to each other (d’appolito effect).
The vertically optimal coupling of the elements with each other is achieved by a narrow construction distance and splitting the acoustic centers into several virtual sound sources: A special Double-Twin Waveformer is coupled to the 1.4" tweeter, which segments the sound into 4 subranges. The Double-Twin Waveformer makes it possible to reduce the distances of the sound sources to a minimum and to optimize the crossover frequencies and coupling.
In comparison to many other arrays of this size, the Ikarray-12 has a warm sound with powerful low-mids that allow a low x-over. As a result, the Ikarray-12 can be used for many purposes without subwoofers.
With completed dimensions of only 60.5 cm, the Ikarray-12 keeps within the advantageously trucking dimensions and is world-wide the narrowest in the 12"/1.4" class. Used in the ground-stack position on the upright Paveosub-218, which has the same width, it exhibits an elegant silhouette and giving an optical unity.
The splaying between the individual Ikarray units is achieved by an innovative infinitely adjustable spindle mechanism. This enables more precise adjustment and optimization of acoustics than has been possible up to now with traditional locking-pin rigging systems. As an additional feature the fine adjustment of the mechanism can also be done under load.
For changing an angle between the elements the complicated unloading and de-rigging of the array become unnecessary. This saves a lot of time and makes work easier. Outriggers with adjustable feet can be mounted on the Rigging frame for ground stacking without subs.
To create a sleek and discreet look, the line-array locking pin connection has been sunken into the loudspeaker body without extending parts.
A single unit can be directly mounted on a pole or tripod without a frame and can be adjusted. For this purpose, a pan-tilt box flange has been integrated into the floor of the box. For smaller venues with only one or two flying arrays, neither the larger rigging frame nor any other specialty parts are needed. For this purpose, the Ikarray-12 is equipped with the specially designed VA-flying tracks that click into the elegant Easy-fly mechanism – also used in the modular series.
The Ikarray-12 is bi-amping operated on two channels of the HDSP-6 amplifiers. This way both channels can be limited, filtered, separated from each other and compensated for time differences.
Woofer and tweeter have a resistance of 16 Ω.
Up to 4 Ikarray-12’s can use a 4-pin plug. Cables are looped and operated in parallel by the same amplifier channels at 4 Ω.
