Often moved, dropped, dusted-up and abused, the GENERAL STAGING
(SA) class represents the bread and butter of the rental and staging
side of pro-audio. Fair stages, club dates, parking-lot gigs, rodeos...
these systems get knocked around and run harder than any other grade
of loudspeaker in the pro side of this industry.
And that's why we build them so tough.
All products in the GENERAL STAGING (SA) class feature
McCauley Sound's superior grade of custom componenty. With many of the
same great features found in our 6000 series transducers, and then some,
each SA series system carries a complement of cone drivers and compression
drivers specifically tailored to for each system... bringing the world-class
standard of performance we place in our touring class product to the
real-world day-in day out business of local and regional sound reinforcement.
In addition to the toughest, most powerful components in the business,
each SA series system features a rugged PROCOAT elastomeric
finish, are built from tough 12-ply birch for durability, carry super-tough
steel grills and handles, road-worthy Neutrik connectors on recessed
Most products in this class are built around groundstacking, though
many offer a basic rigging scheme as well, allowing flown clusters to
be formed for larger events. Smaller enclosures feature POLE
MOUNT ADAPTORS, allowing operators to mount to tri-pods or
create 2-enclosure "speaker on a stick" mobile units, useful
for DJs, corporate presentations, and other mobile applications.
All full range and mid / high systems feature a mode switchable, optimized
CROSSOVER NETWORK as a standard feature. These networks
are externally switchable between passive and bi-amp modes.
Systems in this class are designed to function as stand-alone units
in the case of full range models, or to be paired off with matching
low frequency and subwoofer modules to form three-way or four-way systems.
Reccomended pairings for multi-enclosure set-ups are provided in the

A multitude of rectangular and trapezoidal LF modules provide a sturdy
base for groundstacking full range and mid / high systems.

from a extremely compact enclosure... great for high mobility applications
like weddings, corporate speaking events, dj events, commencement addresses,
