NAMM 2013: Line 6 strengthens StageSource loudspeaker line

Line 6 has users the NAMM show to announce its new StageSource L2m and L2t loudspeakers.

StageSource L2m (pictured) is an 800-Watt, two-way, bi-amped speaker system designed to deliver great power, quality sound and dependability. StageSource L2t features an onboard mixer with effects, acoustic guitar modelling and feedback suppression, making it a self-contained live sound solution.

StageSource L2m and L2t are designed for seamless integration with other Line 6 live sound products, such as the 1,200-Watt L3s subwoofer.

Both L2 series speakers offer six powerful DSP-based Smart Speaker modes, which enable users to optimise the loudspeaker’s output for a variety of applications, including front-of-house PA, floor monitor, personal PA, keyboard backline, acoustic guitar backline, or for use with a multi-effects guitar processor as a high-performance electric guitar speaker system. Onboard accelerometers and pole-mount sensors automatically detect the speakers’ orientation and set their Smart Speaker modes accordingly.

In live sound situations that require two or more speakers, the StageSource L2 series – as well as the larger L3 series speakers – use a proprietary digital networking protocol called L6 LINK to simplify the setup process.

Loudspeakers will automatically self-configure, pan stereo signals, adjust Smart Speaker modes and perform system-wide optimisation. If users add one or more L3s subwoofer, the system automatically sends the summed signals and sets the crossovers.

“StageSource L2-series loudspeakers are designed to deliver great sound from solo performances in coffee shops to full-on rock shows,” said Max Gutnik, vice vresident of product management at Line 6. “We took the same unsurpassed sound quality, powerful DSP, feedback suppression and digital networking technology as our award-winning StageSource L3 series, and placed it within an even more portable form factor.

"As a result, StageSource L2 provides more than any other powered loudspeaker in its class – and delivers unparalleled power, ease and flexibility when combined with StageScape M20d as part of the Line 6 live sound ecosystem.”
