The SL-Series rigging and transportation have all been optimized to incorporate solutions for every eventuality. A patented combination of tension and compression rigging modes is incorporated. Tension mode uses the well-established d&b three-point rigging approach, while the compression mode needs a smaller footprint and is faster when deploying large arrays. The compression mode enables a straight array to be flown from the Touring carts, a hoist or hand winch then curves the array to the defined splay angles. Mounted directly on the GSL and KSL Flying frame, the d&b ArraySight laser inclinometer contains temperature and humidity sensors, this information is relayed to the R1 Remote control software via OCA/AES70 or the handheld meter unit.
Designed to be easily accommodated in standard truck widths and shipping containers, GSL and KSL Touring carts transport four of their respective TOP loudspeakers. The Flying frame can remain attached for transportation allowing the loudspeakers to be lifted directly from the cart. A cart is also available for three SL-SUBs or SL-GSUBs. Cart Covers are available to protect the systems during transportation.
The full functionality of any d&b system is instantly inherited from the software suite for planning, modelling and control. This includes ArrayCalc, ArrayProcessing, NoizCalc, Dante audio transport via the DS10 Audio network bridge, OCA/AES70, and the R1 Remote control software. At the heart is the D80 Touring rack, which houses six amplifiers and utilizes the new MC24/LKA25 loudspeaker multicore solution. This provides twelve channels per cable to power an array of twelve SL-Series loudspeakers from one amplifier rack via two loudspeaker multicore cables.
