The GH-60 Genesis Horn from Danley Sound Labs will make its debut in Orlando, Florida, June 17-19.
According to Danley, the line array concept suffers from two major drawbacks: destructive self-interference and uneven pattern control, especially in smaller units at low frequencies. The combination of Danley's Synergy Horn, Paraline and Shaded Amplitude Lens technologies is designed to enable a single Genesis Horn to supply even coverage out to several hundred feet, whereas it requires multiple line array cabinets to produce performance anywhere close. This is supposedly accomplished as Shaded Amplitude Lens Technology produces as much as 20 dB of gain out of a single cabinet, compared to the more typical 6 dB of gain generated by all other discrete cabinet designs — even those deemed line array cabinets.
The Genesis Horn is a true three-way, full-range horn (50-60 Hz depending on array configuration) designed to offer a horizontal dispersion of 60 degrees, expandable to 120 degrees with the addition of a second unit. Each of the cabinet's eighteen drivers is positioned less than one-quarter-wavelength from the adjacent driver, as well as the drivers covering the adjacent pass band.
Danley's Genesis Horn is available self-powered or externally powered and does not require a proprietary processor.
