    I think I have seen one and it had alot of drivers (maybe more than 10) in one speaker. What the point of a line array? What are the pros and cons of having one instead of a normal 2 way speaker?

    Basically it is an array of drivers used for better dispersion over distance. Here is a quote from the V-dosc site, which is essentially a computer designed complex line array for professional sound reinforcement.
