TLA 1.4

Self Powered Line Array System

TLA1164 | TLA1244 | TLA210A
Complete True Line Array Systems

The Acoustic Technologies Blackbird TLA1.4 System is a self powered modular loudspeaker system which provides true line array performance in a compact and highly portable package.  The TLA1.4 is made up of three system components: the TLA1164 Mid-High Line Array, the TLA1244 Mid-High Line Array and the self powered TLA210A Sub Bass Cabinet.

The TLA1164 Line Array utilises 16x 3.5″ Neodymium transducers, and the TLA1244 Line Array utilises 24x 3.5″ Neodymium transducers to 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 TLA1164 and TLA1244 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 TLA1.4 System’s electronic processing and amplification.  One channel of the amplifier powers the TLA210A Sub Bass system with the other channel powering the TLA1164 / TLA1244 Line Arrays.

The TLA1.4 System is powered by sophisticated Powersoft Class D Amplifier Module which features a fully integrated Switch Mode Power Supply and on- board Digital Signal Processing  delivering an output power of 1,200 Watts RMS.  The Switch Mode Power Supplies features automatic mains voltage selection for world wide operation, the latest generation single-stage patented Power Factor Correction and an incredibly low 0.5 Watts standby power consumption.

The on-board Digital Signal Processing is configured with 4x Acoustic Technologies factory recommended settings which guarantees optimal system performance, output power and long term reliability.  The factory presets are voiced to provide superb monitoring for a wide variety of performance applications. One preset is reserved for system operator adjustment.

The amplifier module provides Signal Input and Link XLR connectors and a Powercon® AC Mains Inlet connector.  A USB Type B connector allows Powersoft’s Armonia software to control and monitor the system’s DSP and amplifiers

The TLA1.4 System offers a highly flexible system architecture. A compact lightweight mono system with two loudspeaker stacks utilises 1x TLA1164 Line Arrays + 1x TLA210A Powered Sub Bass.

A high powered stereo system with two loudspeaker stacks requires 2x TLA1164 or 2x TLA1244 Line Arrays + 2x TLA210A Powered Sub Bass.

Acoustic Technologies offers several preconfigured TLA1.4 Systems as turnkey solutions, complete with all cabling and covers.

Acoustic Technologies Blackbird TLA1.4 Systems are 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.
