EL 15 100° x   8° (HxV)

15” + 3 x 1” / 2-way hornloaded line-array speaker / 600W (RMS)

The EL15 is a coaxial, horn-loaded 15"/ 3 x 1" high-performance line array module. The 15" speaker works onto a huge midrange horn and delivers enormous pressure, which results in an exceptional long-throw effect. With a maximum SPL of 136 dB (50 Hz-20 kHz), the EL15 can be called as real fullrange cabinet. The combination of three compression drivers and the extremely high dynamics of the horn-loaded 15"-transducer enable a vertical dispersion of 8°. The EL15 can be used in a line of up to 8 cabinets and is absolutely powerful enough for an audience of up to 15,000 people.

► 100° x 8° (H x V) nominal coverage
► Max. sound pressure level 136 dB (50 Hz-20 kHz)
► Real fullrange functionality
► 600 W speaker power capability / 8 ohms impedance
► High driver unit with 3 x 1,75“ PM4 voice coil
► Fully integrated flyware
► Cabinet can be stacked onto E18SUB subwoofer

The EL15 is a two-way high performance line array speaker in a trapezoidal chassis for fixed installations and mobile use. The cabinet is equipped with three 1" HF drivers (1,75” voice coil), which are mounted onto a wave guide. The nominal coverage is 100° x 8° (H x V). The MF/LF section is equipped with one high-performance 15" speaker (3” voice coil), which is hornloaded. The 15” transducer is contructed behind the wave guide of the high-frequency section (coaxial construction). The EL15 can be flown in vertical colums with up to 8 units per side by using the EC1 flyframe. The angle between each EL15 can be adjusted from 0° up to 7,5° in steps of 1,5°. The EL15 is compatible with all other ELITE models including ELITE subwoofers. Up to three EL15 can be directly stacked onto the E18SUB subwoofer without any adapter or additional frame. The chassis is constructed from 15 mm plywood (birch) and covered with black PolyCoat© finish. The cabinet is equipped with two grip handles and one front grill with transparent charcoal foam backing. Two speakon connectors (NL4) are mounted at the rear side of the chassis for signal input (input) and signal link (link). The power rating of the EL15 is 600 W (RMS), the impedance is 8 ohms.

EHORN | Hornloaded Core-Technology.

Line array systems are usually a combination of different technologies. The mid/high frequency range is covered by standard array cabinets. This enables high reach. But subwoofers are mostly based on direct reflecting or similar technologies. This results in different maximum reach and SPL between mid/high and sub/low frequency range. The solution for the same maximum reach along the whole frequency range: The ELITE family is completely based on NOVAs „EHORN“ technology. All models including subwoofers are fully horn-loaded.

ELITE systems offer the same SPL along the whole relevant frequency range from 20 - 20.000 Hz.
The result is an equable increase of reach.

The „Physical Correction“.

The vertical arrangement of several loudspeakers in a row results in an increase of reach. This offers the possibility of straight sound reinforcement along defined listener´s surfaces. The existing line array technologies offer well horizontal dispersion and a front-to-back coverage. Different technologies are used to avoid interferences and holes in the defined field.

In spite of every effort, many manufacturers simply do not respect important laws of physics like:
► Identical SPL from 20 - 20.000 Hz
► Precise, equable dispersion from 20 - 20.000 Hz
► Correct signal-runtime from every component (each single woofer  and  driver to each other inside a cabinet)
► Interferences and trouble-making „beam“ between  two woofers inside of one line array cabinet

NOVAs engineering department has respected all this points. Due to the unique combination of innovative technologies ELITE speakers are so-called „physically corrected“. This results in an increased functionality of a true line array system.

EWAVE | The high-efficient Waveguide.

Since the line array has come into vogue, countless designs revolving around to achieve the correct time behavior at high frequencies. It was mostly about trying a variety of single phasing lines to achieve the desired time response. With the skillful interpretation also leads to the target in relation to time. The most "adventurous" diversions are often the reason for higher distortions. As in our NOVA AT2 line array element (ATLAS series), we go a different way. We make the waveguide as small as possible and prefer to put in yet another driver. We divide the waveguide of each driver in just two phasing lines. The results are also a real-time behavior but at lower distortion.

EPLUG | Increased Midrange-SPL.

NOVAs engineers have developed the so-called „EPLUG“ for higher sound pressure at the important frequency range between 500 Hz and 2.000 Hz. This technology is based on an especially calculated phase plug, which works onto the woofer of the mid frequencies. The EPLUG compresses the air molecules between membran and phase plug. This results in much higher sound pressure. Based on this technology, ELITE speakers deliver more sound pressure in this important range. It enables the use of even a 15" speaker without lost of the important mid frequencies. The crossover frequency between mid speaker and high driver can be set much higher then usually.
