There have been a few offerings of high output "point source" boxes over the last few years.  Danley is the first to come to mind. One other that I have heard and liked a lot is the RCF TTl 6a.  I would consider it a point source box, but RCF marketing calls it a "line array".  Obviously, it is derived from the HDL 50 line array and turned "sideways" with a different HF wave guide.  It specs with 2dB less output than the X80.  I haven't mixed on the TTL 6a's, but I was very impressed with the demos.

Danley Sound Labs has been defining the meaning of point source for a while now.  Their ability to combine LOTS of drivers into a single box, outputting coherent sound is pretty amazing. Sorry for the fan-boy commentary, but I get so many compliments on my small Danley rig.  The previous comments sound like Meyer is FINALLY re-inventing point source.

I was waiting for the Danley comments to arrive.
Don't get me wrong, great products. I've owned some and used some over the years.
But they're not very practical and road-ready in day to day-use.
If you're looking at a A-level manufacturer alternative to the X80 it's only one box on the market right now that I can think of, namely the d&b V7P.
IMHO and all that :)
