As you can hear in the video above, the Yorkville Paraline series of loudspeakers are quite a force to be reckoned with. If you want the ULTIMATE in a highly portable and great sounding pro audio rig, this is it! Truthfully, the Paraline system is overkill for most bands or mobile disc jockeys, but if you play to large audiences, than this beast is for you! You can fly these if you want to permanently install them, just give us a call and we can help you select the proper rigging hardware. Built for virtually any typical pro-audio application, the Paraline Series brings the power and precision of processor controlled touring PA into the hands of the working musician with a system that offers simple plug and play operation. Scalable by design, the Paraline Series active cabinets and companion active subwoofers deliver the clarity and precision of a complex line array system in a compact, user friendly format.Developed specifically for mobile PA applications and use in venues where access to complex trussing or roof hangs isnt practical, the Yorkvilles Paraline Series Cabinets mount securely on typical speaker stands without additional rigging hardware.Innovative cabinet design uses Yorkville Sounds proven Paraline high frequency lens technology pioneered in Yorkville Sounds flagship VTC Elevation Series line array cabinets.
Paraline Series Characteristics
Yorkville Sounds Paraline Series active full range loudspeaker system delivers the clarity and precision of a complex line array system in a compact, user friendly format. Innovative cabinet design uses Yorkville Sounds proven Paraline high frequency lens technology pioneered in our flagship VTC Elevation Series line array cabinets.Two BMS 1.75-inch compression drivers mounted to the patented Paraline lens delivers a focused 15-degree vertical dispersion and wide 110 degree horizontal coverage. Four high quality 18 Sound 6-inch woofers provide a tight and ultra responsive low frequency program.PSA1 Paraline Lens TechnologyThe heart of the PSA1 design is the high frequency Para-Line lens. Invented by Tom Danley, this patented technology transforms a point source into a uni-phase plane wave, allowing multiple high frequency drivers to sum coherently in the vertical plane without self-interference. This innovative design provides an effective impedance transformation while at the same time adjusting the path length in a continuously variable way creating a dispersion pattern with the same characteristics as that of a much deeper conventional horn. The Paraline Lens eliminates the impractical depth needed to make a conventional horn that would sum into a non-interfering source needed for multiple cabinet arrays. In the case of the PSA1, a vertical dispersion pattern of 15 degrees is achieved with a Paraline lens less than one inch deep, where a conventional horn design would need to be several metres in length.Innovative Multiple Woofer ConfigurationFour 6-inch high power woofers mounted on the V shaped front baffle /horn utilize the entire front surface area of the cabinet to increase loading on the drivers and control pattern coverage at lower frequencies. This unique four woofer design increases power handling while reducing power compression by spreading the work load out over four long excursion voice coils and heat sinks (magnets).Designed for Live Sound in the Real WorldRugged injection molded ABS cabinet and Neodymium magnet woofers minimize overall cabinet weight making a full system transport and set-up can easily be handled with a single operator. Designed to deliver maximum performance with minimum complication, the PSA1s integrated power amplifiers and internal DSP mean no external processing is required. Direct connect to mixer source and set system levels, and the system is ready for the show.Highly efficient amplifier design means each PSA1 draws less than 3 amps in typical operation meaning up to four cabinets can operate safely on a standard 15 amp service. This allows efficient set up using AC loop thru connections on the PSA1 while avoiding nuisance tripping of mains breakers. This also minimizes the need for multiple extension cables or access to multiple house circuits often needed for an active PA setup.Ideal for mobile PA applications in venues where access to complex trussing or roof hangs isnt practical, the Yorkville PSA1 cabinet mounts quickly and securely on a typical speaker stand. Innovative dual position stand mount offers two potential cabinet angles for expanded setup options. Up to two PSA1 cabinets can be stacked safely and securely on a single traditional stand.
