Re: L1 Model 1S versus Panaray MSA12X

Bruce,
L1 speakers are located behind the talker/performer so they monitor the direct sound the audience hears. The L1 Model 1S has a separate Bass module that sits on the floor. As far as frequency response and range are concerned I accept that the MA12EX would be a better match but what I really wanted to do was compare the performance of the line array component of L1 Model 1S with the Panaray MSA12X. Correct me if I'm wrong but I suspect the MA12 is a closer match to the line array component of the L1 Model 1S.
I wanted to evaluate the advantage of the beam adjustment included in the MSA12X. So I've created two models, one using the MA12 and the other using the MSA12X:
MA12: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZrhUSTAU3oH6w4Uck3OdCcbWpvLuAuEa/view?usp=sharing
MSA12X: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Iu0rhgXaSb-vE4vtq9eyfQAJavgvxLJ6/view?usp=sharing
Pitch/Steering is identical for both speakers as is location etc. The only properties that are different are the beam angle settings for the MSA12X.
The following image compares the direct field coverage at seated ear height for the two models:

Re: L1 Model 1S versus Panaray MSA12X

Bruce,
The model with the level floor in earlier posts is for our new church. Our current worship venue has a raked floor.
So I had a go at modeling that.
Here is a link to that model that includes the MAS 12X:

Here is a screen shot of the direct field:
UJ_Church_Raked_Floor.pngModeler seems to have automatically included a vertical partition down the center aisle. This is great because in the previous models we created a similar partition manually.

The problem is I don't know how to turn it off. Could you please help?

Re: L1 Model 1S versus Panaray MSA12X

Hi John,

please make sure you have read the Design Guide for the MSA12X. It contains valuable information about how to best utilize the beam steering, how this is simulated in Modeler and how the ControlSpace environment is set up.

The vertical mapping can be turned off in the properties for the array.

 

best rgds,

Thomas
