The WPS is a versatile, state-of-the-art line array with a peak SPL of 133dB and is designed for small-to-medium scale touring and install applications that require a high output array with reduced weight and footprint. With exemplary coverage consistency and superb sound performance, the flexibility of WPS makes it an ideal system for live sound reinforcement and installations in theatres, concert halls and Houses of Worship. Return-on-investment within a rental company’s inventory is maximised by also deploying WPS arrays as front-fill, delay or side-hang support for larger WP systems.
WPS is a passive 3-way system which integrates a high density of drive units in a very compact enclosure. It features 2 x 8” (200mm) LF drivers, 4 x 4” (100mm) midrange drivers and 4 x 1” (25mm) exit HF compression drivers loaded by a moulded HF horn which occupies the full width of the enclosure — defining the 100° horizontal constant directivity coverage pattern of both the HF and midrange sections.
The 4” midrange drivers are compression-loaded to raise efficiency and enter the horn walls via annular slots close to the HF throat to sum effectively with the HF wavefront. In the HF section, four 1” exit compression drivers deliver pristine high frequency sound without the harshness and distortion associated with larger format devices.
The 8” LF drivers are set back behind the walls of the HF horn, with a small volume of air in front of each driver increasing the output at the upper end of its operating range. The LF exit apertures are spaced apart horizontally to provide useful LF horizontal pattern control.
For extended low frequency performance, WPS is designed to be partnered with the SXC118 cardioid subwoofer or its flyable variant, the SXCF118.
