Now available, StageSource L3m combines multi-function design with Smart Speaker modes and digital networking for the widest variety of live sound applications.

CALABASAS, Calif.—June 26,  2012—Line 6, Inc. proudly announces the availability of StageSource™  L3m. StageSource loudspeaker systems are built on a powerful new  technology platform that enables a single enclosure to provide  best-of-class performance in multiple live sound functions.

StageSource L3m  is the most flexible loudspeaker available for musicians. Using L6  LINK™ digital networking and six innovative Smart Speaker modes, the L3m  optimizes its output for a variety of performance scenarios:  front-of-house PA, floor monitor, personal PA, keyboard and acoustic guitar backline or with Line 6 POD® multi-effect processors  as a high-performance electric guitar speaker system. Smart Speaker  modes can be set manually or automatically via built-in orientation  sensors that detect whether the speaker has been pole-mounted or rotated and tilted for use as a monitor.

A  compact, full-range three-way speaker system, the StageSource L3m  tri-amped design delivers 1,400 watts of balanced, clean and articulate audio through dual 10-inch woofers and  a horn-loaded, one-inch exit compression driver that combine to deliver  a powerful 132 dB maximum SPL. A precision-engineered 100x50-degree  constant-directivity waveguide delivers consistent coverage throughout its entire frequency range and optimal dispersion  throughout the audience area, wide enough for solo use yet controlled  enough for arrayed pairs. The narrow vertical pattern ensures minimal  energy is reflected off the ceilings and floors.

“The  StageSource L3m is the perfect companion for an L3t based system.  Connected via L6 LINK digital networking, the system couldn’t be easier to set up, and the integration of the  Speaker Modes makes sure the system sounds amazing in every scenario,  from solo performances in a coffee shop through to full-on rock shows,”  says Simon Jones, vice president of new market development at Line 6. “StageSource L3m goes way beyond the capabilities  of a standard powered loudspeaker, offering advanced DSP, smart design  and true scalability with L6 LINK™ digital networking. We’ve also  included 12-band feedback suppression technology so performers sound their best at all times.”

From  solo performers all the way to larger bands, live sound events or  houses of worship, StageSource L3m can be used standalone or configured into full front-of-house and  monitor systems. Connected via L6 LINK, the proprietary Line 6  networking protocol, StageSource L3m speakers automatically detect each  other and adjust their settings accordingly. Used in a system with StageSource L3s subwoofers, crossovers and levels are  automatically set for best performance.

When  connected via L6 LINK, StageSource speakers and the StageScape M20d  digital mixer are capable of unparalleled power and flexibility. Together they redefine the typical  mixer-speaker paradigm to introduce a smarter live sound experience in  which the live rig is a complete, intelligent ecosystem rather than  merely a linear combination of components.

StageSource L3m features heavy-duty plywood construction, durable fitments, a steel grille with a protective screen backing, four M10 suspension points, and a pull-back for install scenarios.

“Line  6 recognized that it’s a challenge for the performing musician to  choose the perfect high-performance loudspeaker system. Over the course of their career, a musician may play  many styles of music, using multiple instruments and play many  different sized venues,” Jones said. “The scalability, integrated  feature set and sound quality of StageSource loudspeaker systems meet that challenge, delivering a high-performance speaker for  every musician’s entire career.”
