La Line high-quality, self-powered loudspeakers are designed for a wide range of portable and fixed sound reinforcement
applications. Using the latest technologies, excellent sound, high power and controlled dispersion are combined in a compact
package that’s easy to carry and install.
test Technology!
The La Line features the latest in amplifier and processor technology. The Class D amplifiers feature Fixed Frequency PWMPPM modulation and are light, clean, power-efficient and matched to the drivers. Each driver in the La-8 and La-12 is powered by a separate amplifier and separately optimised using DSP. The result is a smooth sound, accurate in the lower mid
frequencies and very low in distortion. Two amplifiers in bridge mode drive the La-112S subwoofer.
LED-indicated features include READY status, SIGNAL present, TEMPerature warning and LIMITing. The limiter is optimised for the system which also features sophisticated overload protection. The INPUT connection is by balanced +4dB XLR
and an XLR THROUGH connector allows multiple systems to be efficiently daisy-chained.
PROTECTION CIRCUITS
There are three limiter stages; a clip limiter, responding to excess harmonic distortion, an average power limiter and an average high frequency limiter to protect the HF driver. Additionally, the La Line features average and peak current protection,
whereby the amplifier stage is shut down should the specified thresholds be exceeded, and over-temperature protection with
a warning phase before shut down. This comprehensive set of protection circuits allows the full potential of the system to be
achieved with minimal risk of damage.
PROCESSOR PRESETS
The processor is used for the crossover, time alignment of components, equalisation and dynamic processing of the signal.
There are 4 Presets accessed in sequence by a step-through switch.
On the full range cabinets these are:FRONT - FOH, no subwoofers: low and high frequency shelving equalisation provides a
frequency response contour suitable for music applications.
NEARFIELD - this setting provides a natural, balanced frequency response when the unit
is placed close to listeners in near field and delay applications.
MONITOR - this preset provides a nominally flat response for stage monitor and speech
reinforcement.
X’OVER- adds a 80 Hz High Pass Filter to the system for use with a subwoofer.
On the subwoofer:A choice of Low Pass Filter values is offered - 90 Hz, 100 Hz, 110 Hz and 120 Hz. This
allows system optimization with a wide variety of full range cabinets. 90Hz is recommended for use with La-12 and 100Hz recommended for La-8.

The La Line components are mounted in a rigid, 15mm birch plywood cabinet coated with a durable paint finish. All drivers
are high-quality, high-sensitivity and made in Europe. Each cabinet is fitted with a sturdy metal grille designed to cope with
the rigours of the road - this is especially important for stage monitor applications. Handles are formed directly into the plywood and positioned at the top of the cabinet, rather than the side, to facilitate removal from flight cases.
Fixing points allow horizontal or vertical mounting using optional brackets and a 35mm polemount socket enables use with a
variety of third party stands. The left hand side of the cabinet is angled at 42º - the optimum angle when used on its side as
a stage monitor. Additionally the HF driver on the La-8 and La-12 can easily be rotated to give the same dispersion characteristic when the cabinet is mounted either horizontally or vertically. The VIETA logo can be rotated accordingly for cosmetic
purposes and to indicate the rotation of the horn

st Words…...
Why self-powered loudspeakers?
Speaker cable is the natural enemy of installers and hire companies alike. Long signal cable runs degrade the audio signal,
unless high-quality, (and thus expensive), sectionally-wound 100V line transformers are employed. In mobile applications, as
well as being inconvenient and bulky, speaker cables are unsightly and need careful positioning for health and safety reasons.
Self-powered loudspeakers eliminate the need for speaker cable and the accompanying amp racks, requiring only a local AC
supply and the input signal, which, if professionally balanced, can be run long distances using relatively modest cable without
loss of signal quality.
Incorporating DSP with the amplifier allows the package to be completely self-contained and the components to be accurately
matched so the audio system becomes totally “plug-and-play” and consequently quick and easy to set-up or install.
In the past, the addition of the electronics was accompanied by an unacceptable increase in the weight of
self-powered boxes but the latest generation amplifier/processors, as used in the La Line, solve this problem.
What do I look for when I buy self-powered speakers?
While the amplifier and processor must be of good quality, conventional questions like “how many watts?” are almost irrelevant when choosing a quality self-powered system like the La Line. Of course, there are many factors to consider but here is
Vieta Pro’s “1-2-3 check-list”!
No1: Sound Quality
As with all high-end, professional audio systems, great sound quality is priority one. One of the problems with comparing unpowered speakers is that much of the outcome relies on matching the component parts. This can be a complex process, involving not only the amplifier and speakers but also processor settings and the nature of any wiring, especially when long
runs of speaker cables are to be employed.
Auditioning competing self-powered systems couldn’t be easier. Simply provide the same balanced audio signal to the boxes
and listen.
No2: SPL
The power of an amplifier and power handling of a speaker, the “how many watts?” question, is relevant when matching
individual system components. But the power of any “plug-and-play” system cannot be judged this way, as the acoustic
power produced depends on many other things, particularly the sensitivity of the drive units. So, for complete systems, the
sound pressure level - dB (SPL) - figure is the one to use when comparing acoustic power. The La Line employs very highquality, high sensitivity drivers. These maximise the effectiveness of the on-board amplifiers to produce SPL values which
equal or exceed other heavier and more expensive systems.
No3: Size and Weight
The smaller the system, the less likely it is to interfere with sightlines and the look of an event or installation. The lighter the
boxes, the easier to transport and rig or install. Provided the sound quality is not affected, this is a definite case of “small is
beautiful”. La Line delivers no-compromise high-fidelity, high-power sound in a compact lightweight easy-to use package.
How do I best use the system with a subwoofer?
On La-8 and La-12, preset 4 adds a 80 Hz high pass filter for use with a subwoofer. If one La-112S subwoofer is used per
full-range cabinet, for example when a pole-mount is used, the XLR “through” cable can be used to send the unprocessed
audio signal directly to the subwoofer, which has complementary, on-board, low pass filter choices. If there is more than one
full-range cabinet per sub, best results are achieved with a dedicated, high-quality, mono-sum feed to the subwoofer.
For most environments, these factory recommendations will be the best options:With La-8, select the 100Hz pre-set (pre-set 2) on La-112S.
With La-12, select the 90Hz pre-set (pre-set 1) on La-112S.
However, depending on the location of the subwoofers and full-range cabinets in the acoustic space, there may be a better
combination using the La-112S preset options at 110Hz and 120Hz. As always, use your ears!
