Outline celebrates 40th with GTO C-12 line array

The Italian pro-audio manufacturer Outline celebrated its 40th Anniversary by unveiling the all-new GTO C-12 line source array at Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt.   Following the GTO concept of harnessing the power of multiple transducers in a compact cabinet, the new GTO C-12 contains dual high-power 12” LF drivers, four 6.5” midrange units and two 3” throat compression drivers.   The footprint of the new C-12 is exactly the same as all the other modules in the GTO range, allowing full mechanical compatibility with GTO, GTO-SUB, GTO-LOW and GTO-DF in terms of rigging, flying hardware and wheelboards.   “GTO is one of the most potent line-source systems ever produced, and everyone who works with it comments on its effortless power, clarity and definition even in the largest and most demanding applications. For many of our clients however, there are numerous applications for a system that produces an extremely high output power – surpassed only by its ‘big brother’ – but in a lighter and more compact format. That is the market demand that has driven the development of GTO C-12,” said Outline’s EMEA sales director Chris Hinds.   Outline’s design team are developing a new lightweight flybar for GTO C-12 that will allow up to 12 GTO C-12 cabinets to be flown from a single 1-tonne flying point whilst staying within standard Safe Working Load restrictions.   “This is big news for the many production companies that work in venues which only provide a single rigging point per side and/or have low flying weight limitations, because they can now bring in an easy-to-handle, compact system that is quick to rig and de-rig, which requires only one motor per side and yet produces more than enough power to handle any event,” said Outline’s loudspeaker systems designer Francesco Simeoni.   In related news, an Outline GTO system was recently used for a one-off concert by famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli to promote his latest album, Passione – you can read the full report in PSNEurope May, coming soon!
