TLA 1.3

Self Powered Line Array System

TLA1163 | TLA1243 | TLA210A | TLA210B
Complete True Line Array Systems

AT Blackbird TLA1.3 System is a self powered modular loudspeaker system which provides true line array performance in a compact and highly portable package. The TLA1.3 is made up of four system components: the TLA1163 Mid-High Line Array, the TLA1243 Mid-High Line Array, the self powered TLA210A Sub Bass Cabinet and the passive TLA210B Sub Bass Cabinet.

The TLA1163 Line Array utilises 16x 3″ Neodymium transducers and the TLA1243 Line Array utilises 24x 3″ Neodymium transducersto provide true line array performance with exceptional clarity and transient response. Dispersion is tightly controlled at 120° (H) x 15° (V) allowing the system coverage to be focused to the audience area. The TLA1163 and TLA1243 feature custom extruded aluminium enclosures for reduced weight without compromising the sound quality or cabinet strength.

The TLA210A Sub Bass system uses 2x 10″ Neodymium transducers for a smooth extended low frequency response. The TLA210A cabinet incorporates the TLA1.3 System’s electronic processing and amplification. The on-board networkable DSP and closely coupled 2,500 Watts RMS Dual Channel Class D Amplifier provide exceptional high power performance and excellent system reliability under all operating conditions. One channel of the amplifier powers the sub bass system with the other channel powering the TLA1163 / TLA1243 Line Arrays.

The TLA210B is a passive sub bass system featuring the same system components and performance characteristics as the TLA210A. The sub bass cabinets are crafted from high grade birch ply and are fitted with two pole mount adaptors, handgrips and aluminium feet.

The TLA1.3 System offers a highly flexible system architecture. A compact lightweight mono system with two loudspeaker stacks utilises 2x TLA1163 Line Arrays + 1x TLA210A Powered Sub Bass + 1x TLA210B Passive Sub Bass.  A high powered stereo system with two loudspeaker stacks requires 2x TLA1163 or 2x TLA1243 Line Arrays + 2x TLA210A Powered Sub Bass. If additional low frequency reinforcement is required an additional 2x TLA210B can be added to this system.

Acoustic Technologies offers several preconfigured TLA1.3 Systems as turnkey solutions, complete with all cabling, transit cases and covers.

The Blackbird TLA1.3 System is ideal for a wide range of portable and installed sound reinforcement applications including live music presentations, house of worship audio, outdoor events and corporate productions.

The TLA210A and TLA210B enclosures are constructed of high quality void free 18mm ply while the TLA1163 and TLA1243 have an aluminium extrusion. The transducers are protected by a perforated steel mesh, lined with acoustically transparent foam, providing a durable visually appealing finish.

Sensitivity, Maximum Power and SPL measurements are conducted in accordance with the AES 24 Hour Pink Noise Standard. Acoustic Technologies reserve the right to alter or amend the TLA1.3, without prior warning in the interests of product improvement.
