Stadium Series 5-Module Outdoor Line Array

For larger stadiums and athletic complexes, the ultra-powerful S-XL5 is in a class of its own. Extremely weather-resistant, the S-XL5 delivers an impressive 160˚ horizontal by 40˚ vertical dispersion pattern in the most demanding environments, such as football and soccer fields, baseball stadiums, and amusement parks. The wide dispersion reduces the quantity of enclosures needed to provide consistent coverage and minimize comb filtering and related audible anomalies. The result is performance and durability that are unparalleled, with output up to 147 dB SPL.

Using ten 8-inch, 800W cone drivers and five 1.4-inch compression drivers in a tuned, curved enclosure, the S-X5 provides a symmetrical coverage pattern, ensuring the sound has minimal distortion and smooth, extended low frequency response. It is available as a Bi-Amped passive system, utilizing our PDA1000 amplifier: 500W x 5 HF / 500W x 5 LF, with digital (100) program processing and a Dante™ option.

Extreme Dispersion and Very High Outdoor Output

The shaped enclosure uses Baltic birch cross-laminated wood finished with a fiberglass polyurea coating (inside and out), UV exterior outdoor protection, and a fiberglass seal coating inside and out. The stainless steel fasteners will maintain their appearance, while a stainless steel, perforated grille, backed with a vinyl mesh, completes each system.

Key features:

  • Specifically designed to withstand temperature extremes and moisture
  • Fiberglass seal coating and polyurea inside and out, with UV exterior outdoor protection
  • Five 1.4-inch exit-diameter compression drivers with 3-inch voice coils
  • Ten 8-inch LF transducers with 2-inch voice coils
