SKU: MLA MINI Starter Kit - 4 Pack Category:



  • Numerically optimised, ultra-compact loudspeaker system
  • Cellular array format with amplification, multi-cellular DSP and digital networking housed in companion sub-bass
  • Dedicated Class D amplifiers for individual powering of individual cells
  • Industry leading DISPLAY2.1™ intelligent software interacts with DSP for highly accurate array optimisation
  • Vertical coverage can be fine-tuned electronically to cope with changing environmental conditions and last minute changes in rigging height
  • “Hard-avoid” areas, such as on-stage, ceilings and site perimeter, can be programmed in
  • Switched mode power supplies with PFC (Power Factor Correction) and global mains voltage operation
  • Two-way design delivers LF/HF peak SPL’s of 130/129dB @ 1m from a single, ultra-compact enclosure
  • Fast, integral flying system for suspension of up to 16 MLA Mini or 12 MLA Mini + 3 MSX enclosures
  • True 100° (-6dB) horizontal constant directivity. Consistent and usable out to 125° (-10dB)
  • 76Hz-18kHz ± 3dB frequency response


  • Automatic, intelligent configuration and numerical optimisation eliminates trial-and-error tuning sessions
  • Desired house-curve and precise audience coverage achieved ‘straight out of the box’
  • Artistic changes to balance at the mix position (or elsewhere) translate directly and accurately throughout the audience
  • “Greener”, more efficient audio power via PFC (Power Factor Correction)
  • Programmable leakage parameter to reduce sound spill


  • Small-to-medium scale theatres
  • Small-to-medium live music venues
  • Corporate AV events
