L1 Pro16 Wobble

Pro16 "wobble" is an exaggerated myth. There are no line array systems with zero wobble, and the L1 Pro16 is within the range of legacy and competitor systems with regard to play in the array. The extension is a durable polypropylene plastic with a sufficient wall thickness, which has proven to have a high flexural strength and has passed all quality, reliability (thousands of mating cycles), and safety tests. Performance of the system is not affected, as the connections between the array, extender and bass module are very secure and would require a significant amount of force to damage. The L1 Pro16, all current L1 Pro systems, and legacy L1 products meet the same horizontal force stability requirements (or tip testing requirements). Lastly, the electrical connectors used in the L1 Pro16 are the same that have been used on legacy L1 products, which have 17+ years of field usage and satisfactory performance.

The L1 Pro system extensions are made of a very durable polypropylene with sufficient wall thickness, proven to have a high flexural strength and meets our rigorous quality, reliability, and safety testing requirements. Reliability testing includes mating and un-mating of the array, extension, and subwoofer components that simulates 10 years of product life, and revealed no degradation in fit or stability. Additionally, the L1 Pro16 meets the same horizontal force stability requirements, or tip testing requirements, that all our L1 legacy products, and current family of L1 Pro products meet. The margin in the extension, array, and subwoofer fit experienced by some users is common with portable line array designs, including our legacy L1 systems.
