Point Source Systems

Why Point Source?

Point source systems and line array systems each have their own advantages and disadvantages. However, there are several reasons why point source systems can be a better choice for certain applications.

More natural sound: Point source systems produce a more natural sound than line arrays. Similar to how we hear sound everyday, a point source system produces sound from one physical location. In a vertical line array, the sound is scattered across a line of speakers. The audio can be manipulated to be more directional, however, this manipulation produces its own set of effects. Line array systems fight with cancellation, comb filtering, and a variety of other artifacts that affect the overall sound making it sound artificial. 

More cost-effective: Point source systems are generally more cost-effective than line arrays. This is because they require fewer speakers and less amplification to achieve the same level of sound pressure. Save on space, weight, wiring, power and labor and yet achieve results with less distortion and clean output.

Easier to set up and transport: Point source systems are also easier to set up and transport than line arrays. This is because they are smaller and lighter. Line arrays, on the other hand, can be quite large and heavy, which can make them difficult to set up and transport, especially for smaller events.

More versatile: Point source systems are more versatile than line arrays. This is because they can be used for a wider range of applications. Line arrays are typically used for large venues, such as stadiums and concert halls. Point source systems, on the other hand, can be used for a variety of venues, including small clubs, churches, and schools.

What's the Danley advantage?

Danley took ordinary point source systems and basically stuck them in a horn. You may remember as a child how a horn amplifies a signal by concentrating its output. To put it simply, Danley turned its speakers into large horns. Compared to a regular point source box, Danley also narrows the output of the box to focus the direction of audio. This helps alleviate the perception that point source sound cannot be used in large spaces. This also helps in a number of ways with less interference, less audio bouncing off surfaces, etc. The proper application of boxes can help in spaces where other speakers try and fail.
