BishopSound has announced the launch of its first Line Array speaker system, the Delta Dual 8″ Passive Line Array. Simultaneously, the company announced the opening of a new dedicated demo facility, conveniently situated in the Midlands, where the Line Array and other BishopSound products can be experienced by prospective buyers.
Designed and tuned in the UK, the Delta Passive Line Array BLA208 consists of 4 x Dual 8″ boxes and comes complete in a purpose-built plywood made to measure flight case.
Each of the four boxes contains 2 x 8″ BishopSound Neo Drivers with 2.5″ voice coils and 2 x 1.34 HF units with titanium diaphragms. British made Kevlar speaker cones are used throughout. Each box delivers 600w RMS and operates at 65~20KHZ.
Designed to perform at maximum efficiency and minimum weight each plywood box only weighs 18kg.
Explaining the development and intended market for of the Delta Passive Line Array, BishopSound’s Andrew Bishop says: ‘The live music scene is getting increasingly competitive and the needs of our industry have changed. Promoters are driving rental companies into the ground by offering less money for the sound at events and the middle market for high-quality affordable PA products has been vacant, that is, until now.
‘Prices of some of the larger ‘big name’ Line Array systems have reached a point that they simply cannot earn their keep, so our challenge was to come up with a system that sounded good, was reliable and will be affordable and profitable for hire companies and end-users to own and run. We have opened a new facility in the Midlands so that prospective buyers can pick a time to suit them and have access to a BishopSound consultant/engineer on a one-to-one basis to demonstrate just how much they can now get for their money.’
BishopSound’s Delta Passive Line Array has an RRP of £2,499 but as an introductory offer, the system can be purchased for just £1,999 inc VAT. A free plywood flight case is included free of charge.
