About this product


The GAE Waveline line-array system represents the result of an intensive physical and economic investigation into the market necessities in the field of touring and installation. Based on the experience of users and consultants a huge variety of approaches have been considered. The essence of these reflections builds special options for the development and – designing the Waveline System – has been put into practice:
The combination of two 10” Neodymium transducers of the low-/mid range, each incorporating a 3” voice coil, allows a very low crossover frequency, which raises drastically the power handling capacity. This way the Waveline System is suitable for non-restrictive full range use. The GAE HF-Phase-EQ coupled to a high power 2” Neodymium-driver achieves an accurate and highly exact sound conduction in the high-tone range, which results in an extended high frequency bandwidth.
The construction determines an extremely low crossover frequency to the compression driver which optimizes the horizontal dispersion of the system. Because of the high radiation-resistance the overall system comes up with an outstanding mid-tone performance. As the double-10”-construction enables a low tuning frequency of 80Hz, a smooth transition to a subwoofer, employed in ground stacking, is guaranteed. Beyond that the GAE Waveline System displays an enormous efficiency in full range application.
Deduced from the experiences made with the twin-coaxial principle used with the GAE Director Top an extremely exact symmetric dispersion will be established in the Waveline System. The overall construction is left/right symmetric, thus a concise utilization for the user and fitter results.
Furthermore the development aimed at the realization of an economic array-length-/prize-proportion. To reach this goal each Waveline element has been outfitted with a nominal impedance of 8 ohms in the high- as well as in the low-/mid-tone range, thus three elements can be operated at one amplifier. In this way by the help of only three elements and one amplifier a vertical angle of 30° can be achieved as minimal configuration.
This elemental set-up can be extended with further Waveline elements. By employing modern system controllers the peripheral electronics equipment can be limited to a sensible measure.
Users already owning a GAE Director System can easily make use of the Waveline System as the pre-existing amp-racks can be operated compatibly. The only item needed additionally is an 8-pin-CaCom adapter box on Neutrik 4-pin-Speakon.
For flying mechanics only high quality and determinate materials are applied. The load distribution is forwarded solely in the flight elements. Apart from locking quick release pins no bulk parts are needed.
The very discreet flying mechanic is let in the loudspeaker’s enclosure without attracting attention. On request the handles on the front can be removed and the lateral recesses covered. The whole process of mounting- and demounting has been optimally matched to all user’s demands.
GAE WaveLine-system's rigging mechanics together with the flying-cradle are certified according to Germans BGV-C1 and DIN 18800. An analysis of strength can be achieved by a free-of-charge software (GAE's Flying Calculator) which shows easily the legality of your rigging tasks.
The stack-cradle together with the attached outriggers enable the mounting of up to 6 WaveLine elements as ground-stacking. The frame of the stack-cradle fits to GAE's basses BR118, BR218, Director-Bass and Director-Single-Bass and enables a secure mounting of 3 WaveLine elements.
For simulation and calculating of acoustical configurations GAE provides the EASE Focus Aiming Software from SDA (Software Design Ahnert GmbH). The EASE Focus Aiming Software is a two-dimensional acoustic simulation software that serves for the configuration and modelling of Line-Arrays close to reality.
Ease Focus and the specific product file (GAE-WaveLine.efo) together with GAE's Flying Calculator are available as free download from this web-site.

Used GAE-German Audio Engineering

The more you’re preoccupied with the small things the bigger they appear to be.

This way or other you can imagine the engineers’ work at this small successful company situated in the Westfalian Werther in Germany. With GAE it’s the interaction of the tiny details that creates innovations.
Since 25 years GAE has been one of the biggest participants/competitors in the acoustic branch, allowing itself only one piece of luxury: a character of it’s own. This is reflected as well in the products and the great variety of projects maintained in Germany an abroad as in the quantity of professional event-services that make use of GAE-products.
There is only one thing more important than sound pressure: control. That’s why the electronic components as well as the performed enclosures and drivers are applicable to extreme conditions und promise unlimited usability.
With GAE innovations start in the brain then going ahead to perfection. There are speakers mirroring our times and there are ones being ideal visions. The GAE Director System (with so called TwinCoaxPointSource Technology) for instance does not reflect modern times but represents a paradigm big speaker-builders model on.
In future this company not only wants to accomplish the present but to make visions come true. It actually is being worked on new systems which -again by the interaction of details- will become innovations!

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.
