Work addresses mid-size market with Arion 5
Spanish brand Work is adding to its Arion line array series with the Arion 5, a compact, self-powered sibling to the already available Arion 10. According to the manufacturer, the new system is ‘perfect for small and medium applications’ and offers ‘high SPL and excellent frequency response’.
The Arion 5 is composed of four two-way satellites (the SL 25), a self-powered tri-amplified subwoofer with built-in DSP (the SL 115 SA) and a flying frame for rigging. The tri-amplified module reportedly provides complete control over each band, with the amplifier delivering 1,000W to the subwoofer and 650W plus 150W to the satellites (mid and high respectively). Meanwhile, the onboard DSP allows end-users access via dedicated software to a number of key parameters for ideal system optimisation.
Also new from the brand is the UDA 16, a uniform dispersion array column speaker designed to operate in acoustically difficult and particularly reverberant environments. Constructed from aluminium to achieve a light weight, the UDA 16 is described by the manufacturer as ‘compact, portable and elegant’. In addition, two of the columns can be stacked and connected with a Z15A amplified subwoofer to extend low-end performance.
