About this product


Our commitment to advanced technology

AIRLINE LA-Series line array systems present our commitment to advanced technology offering high fidelity sound, even wide-dispersion characteristics and extreme high spl optimized for use in professional touring applications such as open air concerts, festivals and arenas as well as sound installations in stadiums, houses of worship, large clubs, theatres and musicals.
At the heart of the Coda Audio AIRLINE LA-Series LineArrays is the unique 4-inch planar wave driver. Coda Audio developed a unique driver technology to radiate a coherent planar wave front from a rectangular piston without internal diffraction for superior dispersion control and high fidelity sound. The driver contains a high energy neodymium magnet system and a unique annular ring diaphragm. The ring diaphragm works similar as a wound 140 mm long ribbon diaphragm providing linear frequency response up to 20 kHz.
The advanced driver design allows perfect acoustical coupling of individual units to create a virtually continuous and truly coherent line source.
The AIRLINE LA12 is a 3-way symmetrical high output line array module, designed for large venues where high fidelity sound and outstanding intelligibility is required.

State-of-the-art drivers

Low: The cabinet contains two 12” neodymium ultra low distortion cone drivers covering the 50 Hz – 400 Hz range. The double 12” long excursion drivers contain high flux linear motors with triple demodulation rings for ultra low distortion and increased power handling.
Mid: Our goal was to generate very high resolution and high dynamic range. To achieve this we developed a special transducer which works in the mid range as a pure piston without the breaking up modes typical for direct radiating small cone drivers. Another aim was to increase the sensitivity and get outstanding headroom in the very important middle range. The AIRLINE LA12 contains four 3.5” voice coil neodymium mid range drivers with unique ring diaphragms covering the 350 Hz – 1700 Hz range. Loaded to advanced hyperbolic lenses they achieve very high sensitivity of 116 dB 1 W / 1 m above 300 Hz. This means that the drivers need less power to produce enormous high spl and work almost at less than 10% of their nominal power handling. Therefore the ability to reproduce peaks is unique and is practically only limited by the electronics. This patented design is a result of extensive dedicated research and development resulting in near zero power compression, dramatic improvement in dynamic response, clarity and transparency.
High: The three 4” HF planar wave drivers contain unique annular ring diaphragms to radiate a coherent planar wavefront without internal diffraction. This distinctive technology allows perfect acoustical coupling for superior dispersion control and high fidelity sound.

Coherent wavefront

The tri-axial V-arrangement of the low, mid and high frequency drivers ensures coherent coupling between all components. The high frequency planar wave drivers are mounted in the middle, close to the mid-range hyperbolic lenses. The twin 12” drivers are optimally placed to provide a constant horizontal directivity above 200 Hz. This arrangement combines the energy produced from all 9 transducers to perform as a single source achieving a coherent and uniform wavefront.


The modules are designed to be used in multiples with a minimum configuration of six. Up to 24 units can be arrayed to achieve extreme high levels needed for the largest venues. The use of SC8 / SC8F subwoofers increases the low frequency response. The integrated rigging system allows quick and easy flying or ground stacking. Arrays may be built straight or curved in various angles to obtain the desired vertical coverage. The Coda EASE Focus simulation software allows you to calculate the perfect setup for every application. Designed for large scale touring and installation applications the AIRLINE LA12 is perfectly suited for open air, stadiums and large theatres where outstanding output capability and low power compression are needed. Applications include sports venues, stadiums, large theatres and large houses of worship, touring and open air festivals.

Sensor controlled subwoofer with versatile pattern control

The Feedback loop controlled subwoofers have clear advantages over conventional subwoofers when it comes to sonic performance, output and size.
The advanced design aligns several new technologies for outstanding performance.

Key technologies
  • Award winning sensor controlled technology
  • Feedback loop control – ultra low distortion, very extended and controlled response
  • Long excursion 18” woofers with integrated velocity sensor
What is the Velocity Feedback Loop Comparator?

The specially designed 18” driver includes a built in “velocity sensor” that measure precisely the movement of the voice coil. The “velocity sensor” sends information to the Comparator about velocity, excursion and speed of the voice coil (using XLR cable). The comparator unit of the C10 compares the original input signal to the movement measurement from the “velocity sensor” and adjusts the amplifier driving voltage and/or current so that the diaphragm moves the way it should move. This compensates in real time for the non linearity of the speaker/ cabinet.

Reduced group delay

This is a big issue that is most often overlooked in conventional designs. The feedback comparator technology offers great advantages in the time domain. In fact the upper bass and the very low frequency are time aligned which means they are reproduced at the same time resulting in extremely accurate and musical bass reproduction.


The Sensor controlled subwoofers are equipped with extremely long excursion 18” neodymium ultra low distortion woofers with integrated velocity sensors that measure, compare and control cone movements. The neodymium motor delivers extreme high magnetic flux for increased efficiency. The 4” voice coil is 50 mm high, ensuring ultra linear excursion of 40 mm / pp at consistent magnetic force. State of the art carbon-fiber cone ensure maximum stiffness and low moving mass. Three aluminum shorting rings reduce inter-modulation distortion; minimize induction variation while reducing thermal compression. This design reduces dramatically the distortion of a typical subwoofer at longer excursion levels, and improves the overall sound quality and performance characteristics of the cabinet. The sensor is in fact an additional voice coil connected to the loudspeakers voice coil in a high precision, magnetically shielded system.

Electronics and Cabling

The Coda Audio C10 amplifier provides integrated power and feedback loop control solution for the Sensor controlled subwoofers. The unit has two amplifier channels as well as two comparators connected to a 5-pol Neutrik XLR input. The comparator’s electronic circuit loop measures the voice coil excursion of the driver and corrects the signal, significantly decreasing distortion. The unit is set for flat frequency response down to 25 Hz (-6 dB).

Equalizer: A component designed to alter the frequency balance of an audio signal. Equalizers may be graphic, parametric, or a combination of both. Fade: A gradual increase in audio, i.e. a fade-up, or a gradual decrease in audio, i.e. a fade-down.Feedback: The transmission of current or voltage from the output of a device back to the input, where it interacts with the input signal to modify operation of the device. Feedback is positive when it's in phase with the input and negative when it's out of phase. Frequency: The number of cycles (vibrations) per second. In audio, audible frequencies commonly range from 20 to 20,000 cycles per second (Hz). In video, frequency is used to define the image resolution. Low-frequency video images depict large objects or images. Higher frequencies depict smaller objects (finer details). Frequency Response: A measure of what frequencies can be reproduced and how accurately they are reproduced. A measurement of 20 to 20,000 Hz, 3dB means those frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz can be reproduced no more than 3 dB above or below a reference frequency level. Full-Range: A speaker designed to reproduce the full range (20 Hz to 20 kHz) of audio frequencies.Gain: Increase in level or amplitude.Gooseneck: This refers to amicrophone with a flexible neck that is most frequently attached to a podium or lectern. It is designed to allow the speaker to raise or lower the microphone to a suitable height.Graphic Equalizer: A type of equalizer with sliding controls that creates a pattern representing a graph of the frequency-response changes. Raising sliders boosts the affected frequencies; lowering sliders cuts (attenuates) the affected frequencies.High Pass: A filter that passes high frequencies, and attenuates low frequencies. Same as low cut.Hz: Hertz or cycles per second. Something that repeats a cycle once each second moves at a rate of 1 Hz.Incue/Inq/In-Point: These words all refer to the initial few seconds of audio signifying the beginning of the production.Impedance: A measure of the impediment to the flow of alternating current, measured in ohms at a given frequency. Larger numbers mean higher resistance to current flow.KHz: Kilohertz or one thousand Hz.Lavaliere: A small microphone that attaches to clothing, allowing the speaker to have a hands-free presentation.Line Array: A group of speakers that have been arrayed or “built up” in the vertical or horizontal plane, which allow for a highly consistent sound field. A Line Array is perfect for medium to large audiences.Midbass: The middle of the bass part of the frequency range, from approximately 50 to 100 Hz (upper bass would be from 100 to 200 Hz). Also used as a term for loudspeaker drivers designed to reproduce both bass and midrange frequencies. Midrange: The middle of the audio frequency range. Also used as a term for loudspeaker drivers designed to reproduce this range. Mixer: This is the unit in which audio signals are directed from. A mixer provides for both mic and line input combinations while allowing you to control one or more outputs.MP3: MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3. Compression scheme used to transfer audio files via the Internet and store in portable players and digital audio servers. Natural Sound (NATS): The nonverbal audio that occurs in a non-studio setting. NATS can be used to help characterize the setting.Noise: An unwanted portion of a signal such as hiss, hum, whine, static, or buzzing.Passive: Not active. A passive crossover uses no external power and results in insertion loss. A passive speaker is one without internal amplification.Phase: Time relationship between signals; it's all relative.Power Output: A measure, usually in watts, of how much energy is modulated by a component.Preamplifier: A control and switching component that may include equalization functions. The preamp comes in the signal chain before the amplifiers.surround processor portion of the receiver and the input of the amplifier portion of the receiver.Processors: Anything that processes an incoming signal in some way. Surround processors, for example, can decode a Dolby Digital signal to send to an amp so you can hear it.Pulse Code Modulation: (PCM) a way to convert sound or analog information to binary information (0s and 1s) by taking samples of the sound and record the resulting number as binary information. Used on all CDs, DVD-Audio, and just about every other digital audio format. It can sometimes be found on DVD-Video.RF: Radio Frequency. Television signals are modulated onto RF signals and are then demodulated by your television's tuner. VCRs and DBS receivers often include channel 3 or 4 modulators, allowing the output signal to be tuned by the television on those channels. Also, laser discs used an RF signal for modulating Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtracks on some movies. This requires an RF demodulator (usually referred to as an AC3-RF demodulator) before or in the surround processor to decode the signal. RMS: Root Mean Square or the square root of the arithmetic mean (average) of the square's set of values. A reasonably accurate method of describing an amplifier's power output. Signal-to-Noise Ratio: A comparison of the signal level relative to the noise level. Larger numbers are better. Simultaneous Interpretation: This system allows attendees to hear the meeting in their own language. Sound field: The total acoustical characteristics of a space, such as ambience; number, timing, and relative level of reflections; ratio of direct to reflected sound; RT-60 time; etc. Speaker: A component that converts electrical energy into acoustical energy. SPL: Sound-Pressure Level. Measured in dB. Subwoofer: A speaker designed to reproduce very low bass frequencies, usually those below about 80 Hz.THX: Certification program for home theater equipment. Uses some proprietary features, but mostly assures a base quality level for a given room size. (See THX Select or Ultra.) Is compatible with any and all soundtrack formats. Stands for either Tom Holman's eXperiment, after the engineer who drafted the original standard, or is named after the company's founder George Lucas' first movie, THX 1138. Nobody agrees on which.
