Well folks, a company here in Richmond just bought a truckload of them. I'll let you know what I think, when I hear 'em.

>>the line array concept was originally developed by dr. Christian heill on the 70s and the first cabinets with this concept where created by McIntosh xrt22, the first company to use them in live shows was L-acoustics with v-dosc <<...


Uhh, it only took a couple of seconds for Yahoo to find the designer of the xrt22, who freely admits to prior art on his site http://www.roger-russell.com/columns/columns.htm#beginning
This also ignores things such as the Magnapans and SoundLab and Martin Logan electrostatics that behave as line souces.  Either by having narrow high frequency sections or curved radiators in the horzontal plane.

Even on the lounge, there are folks who have some sense of audio history.  It doesn't do very well in attempting to establish credibility to make such statements.

Its funny to me that this post has come up.  

I found TVI on Ebay just like most of you guys and was interested because of the price.  My first words were "Wonder what that thing sounds like"

So I spoke with David from TVI on Monday, and requested a Demo.  He said I would have it this week seeing that they are 45 minutes from me.  I will give it a full review on the Road Test section.  

That is if its ok with the moderator seeing the road test wasn't setup by PSW.

I did the EV Phoenix road test last year. And I own a 16 box EV linearray system right now.  (I might have to make a direct comparison.)

I will state my unbiased option on this company and its product all the way around.

Now I need some ideas on what people want to see as far as data.  Freq sweeps, Smaart Data, DB, SPL ratings achieved,  Hardware reliability, easy of rigging????????????????????
Give me some ideas.

Full analysis. Build quality, SPL, response, directivity, power handling and the good old "What my ear tells me" test.

I was on ebay and searched a bit to find nothing.  I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of or used the TVI Audio CT or BT series line arrays.  They are currently on EBAY. Here is a link to the CT
 http://cgi.ebay.com/Line-Array-System-CTseries-Compact-Line-  Array-System_W0QQitemZ200136512892QQihZ010QQcategoryZ47094QQ ssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

and for the BT

 http://cgi.ebay.com/Line-Array-System-Compact-Design-w-Built  -in-Amps-DSP_W0QQitemZ200136515074QQihZ010QQcategoryZ47094QQ ssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I was looking at changing my setup and possibly array system, just looking for info on these if any.


Both of these listings appear to be deleted.

The fact the listings are gone now likely means nothing.  Any auctions from August 2007 would no longer be viewable.

Some of the drivers really resemble JBLs, but I HIGHLY doubt they're making use of such a pricey component in such a cheap box.
