The AKW 8.2 HC is a column system element with cardioid dispersion character that can be used as single unit or in groups. With the Cardioid technology it is possible to transfer the directivity characteristics of directional microphones to loudspeaker systems. This enables a perfect directional effect over a broad frequency spectrum. In case of the ALW 8.2 HC the sound is projected in the form of a cardioid plane, suppressing unwanted reflections to the sides or the back. By arraying several elements vertically, this controlled dispersion is extended deeply into the low frequency range, both in the vertical and the horizontal planes. Because of these characteristics, it is possible to place two or three vertical arrays next to each other without causing mutual interferences. This small line array system element is especially suitable for very narrow and acoustically problematic rooms because of its unique properties.

The ALW 8.2 HC can be used universally as a single unit.
The ALW 8.2 HC is available in 16Ohm or 8Ohm version.

Available as IP65-version on request.
