Line Array Systems

We have an extensive stock list of GAE WaveLine and WaveLine PT enclosures.

The GAE WaveLine line-array system represents the result of an intensive physical and economic investigation into the market necessities in the field of touring and installation. Based on the experience of users and consultants a huge variety of approaches have been considered. The essence of these reflections builds special options for the development and – designing the WaveLine System – has been put into practice.

The combination of two 10” Neodymium transducers of the low-/mid range, each incorporating a 3” voice coil, allows a very low crossover frequency, which raises drastically the power handling capacity. This way the WaveLine System is suitable for non-restrictive full range use. The GAE HF-Phase-EQ coupled to a high power 2” Neodymium-driver achieves an accurate and highly exact sound conduction in the high-tone range, which results in an extended high frequency bandwidth.

GAE WaveLine Series

GAE WaveLine PT Series

The GAE WaveLine PT line-array system represents the result of an intensive physical and economic investigation into the market necessities in the field of touring and installation. Developed and based on the experience of other users and consultants a huge variety of approaches has been considered.

The combination of two 6,5” Neodymium transducers of the low-/mid range, each incorporating an 1,5” voice coil, allows a low crossover frequency.

This way the WaveLine PT System is suitable for full range use in special applications.

Smaller Speaker Enclosures

The GAE System series consists of a construction-kit of different loudspeaker-systems that can substitute standard elements that are currently very popular. These sound reinforcement systems represent an enormous flexibility as well as a perfect design and up-to-date acoustic characteristics. The loudspeakers assimilate to their environment – always offering a brilliant acoustic result.


GAE System 6

The GAE System 6 is an extremely compact passive 2-way system with high power capacity. Because of it’s manageable and un-intrusive construction the loudspeaker is applicable to a great number of tasks.


GAE System 10

The GAE System 10 is a compact passive two way system that can be put to various applications. It excels in natural recording characteristics, a linear frequency response curve in the whole spectre of transmission and a high power-handling capacity. The HF-sound is emitted in an angle of 90° x 50°. The horn construction has been manufactured from metal and is extremely resistant to mechanical influence. The horn can be 90° rotated which allows an adjustment of the irradiation to a horizontal or vertical mounting.

The System 10 is suitable as a FOH loudspeaker for the near field application (among other possibilities as wedge with a positioning angle of 45°) and as delay-line loudspeaker for big audience events. 


GAE System 12

The GAE System 12 has been developed under the premises of achieving the highest degree of flexibility and adaptability possible regarding the acoustic and technical features of the product. This concept culminates in the vast variety of possible acoustic applications (installation, touring, gala) as well as the flying-mechanical realisation of architects’ specific demands by an intelligent enclosure preparation.

The vented 12" N/DYM loudspeaker of System 12 is outfitted with a power handling capacity of 350W according to IEC-norm 268-5 and thus capable of producing sound pressure levels of up to more than 130dB (1m). Ideally the low-mid transducer is perfected by supplying a 70W 1.4" N/DYM HF-compression driver. The driver is situated on a 80° x 60° (system variant 12-8) or by choice a 60° x 40° (system variant 12-6) square horn construction. The hand-laminated fibre-glass horn is extremely robust and resistant to mechanical influence.


GAE System 15

The GAE System 15 is a two-way system which is completely compatible to System 12 but by contrast to this has been supplied with an enlarged, more powerful deep-tone response. It consists of a vented 15"-N/DYM low/mid-transducer and a horn loaded 1.4" N/DYM compression driver.

System 15 has as well been developed under the premises of achieving the highest degree of flexibility and adaptability possible regarding the acoustic and technical features of the product. This concept culminates in the vast variety of possible acoustic applications (installation, touring, gala) as well as the flying-mechanical realisation of architects’ specific demands by an intelligent enclosure preparation.

The vented 15" N/DYM loudspeaker of System 15 is outfitted with a power handling capacity of 350W according to IEC norm 268-5 and thus capable of producing sound pressure levels of up to more than 130dB (1m). Ideally the low-mid transducer is perfected by supplying a 70W 1.4" N/DYM HF-compression driver. The driver is situated on a 80° x 60° (system variant 15-8) or by choice a 60° x 40° (system variant 15-6) square horn construction. The hand-laminated fibre-glass horn is extremely robust and resistant to mechanical influence.


ProStage Series Monitor Wedges
