Some jobs require a large line array. For all others, there is MAILA XL. For those who have the highest demands in terms of power, throw and even sound dispersion, yet do not want to forego easy handling and maximum flexibility, MAILA XL is a groundbreaking system for professional live sound applications, clubs and large conferences, which is also perfectly at home in theatres with its slim, cable-free design concept.
In contrast to the MAILA S, M and L ground stack systems, MAILA XL was primarily designed for flown applications, but can also be reconfigured into several ground stack systems with minimal additional investment.
Thus, MAILA XL does not present itself as “one” product, but as a scalable stereo sound reinforcement solution that sets new standards in its diversity and flexibility. Driven by a total power of 17.5 kW, MAILA XL combines several acoustic concepts in a unique way: Bandpass subwoofer with cardioid function, flown amplifier module with integrated DSP and coaxial satellites with line array functionality.
The low-frequency basis of MAILA XL is formed by six 2.5 kW powered 2x 15” high-performance subwoofers (MAILA SUB) in bandpass design featuring the newly developed SysCore® DSP that deliver a massive and powerful bass foundation. The hangs are each driven by a MAILA SPA amplifier module with SysCore® DSP, which contains the complete amplifier electronics.
Beneath each of the SPA amplifier modules sit eight MAILA SAT satellites in an elegant unibody aluminium housing. The connection between SPA and SAT as well as between the satellites is completely cable-free via the newly developed SmartLink+® rails. Based on Advanced WaveAhead® technology, each SAT has five 1” tweeters placed in front of a 6.5” midrange driver and coupled seamlessly via the SonicGuide® (two combined waveguides) to avoid interference. Furthermore, despite the satellite’s compact dimensions, the integrated passive membrane provides extended punch down to 100 Hz. The result is a classic line array dispersion behaviour with impressive throw and sound bundling down to the last corner of the room.
On the back of the housing of each MAILA SAT is a rotating handle which hides a groundbreaking innovation: via the patented EasySplay® mechanism, users can adjust the inclination of each individual satellite continuously from 0° to 8° in the blink of an eye. The angle can be adjusted with just one hand, even under load. In this way, every MAILA system offers a uniquely flexible concept for adjusting the sound coverage to any sound reinforcement situation at any time.
Directly on the device or via the free MAILA app (iPadOS), every MAILA system can be adjusted quickly, easily and in detail and supplied with software updates wirelessly. Based on the integrated LogoLink® Wireless Connection, operating ranges of up to 30 metres under practical conditions are no problem for MAILA. Once connected, the app automatically detects the available MAILA components and enables the system to be set up quickly and easily – including calculation of the SAT angles – in the run-up to an event. The highlight: the wireless antennas are invisibly integrated into the LD logos of subwoofers and amplifier modules (LogoLink®).
With MAILA, LD Systems presents a new sound reinforcement concept with which users do not need to commit to one system only. MAILA has many faces.
