Full compatibility with Outline Mantas 28
Superfly is a fully active, quad-amplified design which utilises X8-series DSP-equipped amplification and control platform.
Whilst the loudspeaker is a true three-way (HF-MF-LF) design, the dual high-efficiency 10” transducers in the LF section are powered individually which significantly enhances low-frequency performance compared to our Butterfly (the benchmark in its category, and one of the most influential loudspeaker designs of the last 15 years).
Superfly’s ultra-wide bandwidth and clarity makes it the ideal solution without the need for additional subwoofers. However, when used with any Outline subwoofers, its full acoustic potential is realised.
The midrange and HF components (dual 8” drivers and a single 3” compression driver) are shared with our GTO series, producing some remarkable performance figures.
Although it includes established technologies from other Outline products, Superfly has been created using a truly integrated system approach. Designed from the outset to use our state-of-the-art X8-series DSP-equipped amplification, a Superfly rig is simplicity itself to deploy in any situation, relying on minimal crew and requiring very modest floor space to transport and store.
Part of Superfly’s design is the wide 90-degree dispersion in the horizontal plane, which in many cases will reduce or eliminate the necessity for additional ‘fill’ cabinets. Where these are required however, Superfly will easily integrate with other Outline cabinets – for example, the 120-degree horizontal dispersion of our Mantas 28 cabinet would make it the perfect downfill / nearfield option for Superfly since it not only uses the same rigging hardware but also shares the same Seamless Baffle concept, providing perfect acoustic compatibility.
