GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – JUNE 2015: Danley Sound Labs, champion of unconventional point-source loudspeakers that deliver superior fidelity and pattern control, unveils a new series that places its patented point-source Synergy Horn technology inside a line array form factor. Dubbed the Exodus System, the range currently includes the XD-96 (90 x 60-degree) far-throw loudspeaker, the XD-62 (60 x 20-degree) near-field extension, and the XD-118 subwoofer. New models with other popular coverage patterns will be announced soon. The Danley Exodus System permits quick line array-style rigging and acquiesces to clients who demand a line array aesthetic, while delivering far better performance than conventional line arrays.

“More and more sound professionals are recognizing the serious short-comings of conventional line array systems,” said Mike Hedden, Danley president. “The between-box interference in a line array system is horrible and generates nasty comb filters that no amount of processing can ever fix. If I could snap my fingers and have the whole industry abandon line arrays and everything to do with them, I would, but the reality is that the industry now has a line array legacy – both perceptually and logistically – that sound professionals are often forced to work within often choosing fast rigging at the expense of accuracy and fidelity. Exodus gives them both! The Exodus System fits Danley’s awesome Synergy Horn solution into the industry’s line array legacy. They rig quickly and sound phenomenal. Moreover, unlike line arrays, the Exodus System will allow coupled boxes with different coverage patterns, allowing users to separately optimize near-, mid-, and far-throw beam widths.”

He added, “The name, of course, derives from the second chapter of the Bible, in which the Israelites are set free after four-hundred years of bondage in Egypt. It’s tongue-in-cheek – we want to convey the idea that the Exodus System offers freedom from line array bondage. I don’t even care so much that if people mistake it for a line array, as technically there really are no broadband line source products on the market and yet this term has taken on a completely new meaning. So if someone says, ‘that’s the best-sounding line array I’ve ever heard!’ Fine, don’t tell ‘em. Let ‘em think it!”

Danley Sound Labs is the exclusive home of Tom Danley, one of the most innovative loudspeaker designers in the industry today and recognized worldwide as a pioneer for "outside the box" thinking in professional audio technology.

Danley Debuts New Caleb Horn at University of Iowa

The University of Iowa Hawkeyes football team plays all of its home games in the 70,500-seat Kinnick Stadium, located on the west side of campus. Although it’s fair to say that almost all Iowans stand behind the Hawkeyes (there is no pro team in the state), it’s also true that Iowans recovering in the hospital deserve peace and quiet, even on game day.
