MANTAS is one of the most recent VLA element designed by Outline. Thanks to the great experience accumulated with Butterﬂy - the Outline system with the same fundamental components and characteristics -
MANTAS offers leading edge performance from a cabinet that is extraordinarily compact and light-weight. Its top grade components - two 8-inch mid-woofers with Neodymium magnets and a 3-inch compression driver loaded with the well known D.P.R.W.G. - ensure absolutely insigniﬁcant distortion levels and greater reliability. MANTAS is a reference point in its category (compact VLA) for medium-sized applications, but it was not only conceived as an object in its own right: it has the great advantage of being compatible with Butterﬂy. In fact, it has the same ﬂ ying points and can be used along with the Butterﬂy system (ﬂown below it) as an element able to give wider horizontal coverage (120°) for FRONT-FILL and DOWN-FILL applications.
Numerous rental companies worldwide beneﬁt from the “Butterﬂ y-Mantas” combination to ensure even sound distribution for their audiences, no matter how large they are. The HF section is entrusted to a compression driver with a 3” diaphragm loaded with a D.P.R.W.G., already used successfully on the Butterﬂy system.
MANTAS is used in biamp format. The channels of the ampliﬁ ers will power the 8-inch mid woofer (LF-MF section) and the 3-inch compression driver (HF section) separately.
MANTAS clearly has a good COST EFFICIENCY RATIO.
With just four ampliﬁers, twelve elements (6+6 in stereo) can be correctly powered: this type of set-up ensures exciting SPL for a large audience.
