Vive Audio - LS Series

Featuring planar ribbon drivers, Christie® Vive Audio™ LS Series provides dramatically higher RMS-to-peak max SPL ratio than compression drivers for improved performance and intelligibility. Rotatable waveguides on the screen channels and a slim, low light reflective enclosure with multiple mounting options make the LS Series quick and easy to install discretely into any space-constrained auditorium.


  • Planar ribbon drivers provide better RMS-to-peak max SPL ratio than compression driver systems resulting in enhanced voice intelligibility, superb sonic balance and less distortion
  • High efficiency design enables the use of lower power amplifiers resulting in overall systems cost savings
  • Acoustically isolated and extensively damped to minimize driver interaction and enhance small level signal resolution
  • Rotatable MF-HF waveguides on screen channel loudspeakers increase installation options
  • Higher resolution audio and dynamic range reproduction than standard cinema audio loudspeaker systems
  • Low light reflective finish for stealthy cinema installations
  • Sophisticated crossover design with frequency shading technology and optimized acoustic integration of transducers, provide a wide horizontal dispersion and controlled vertical dispersion pattern
  • Backed by a limited 5-year warranty
