EAW Expands MicroWedge Line IEMs

EAW is shipping the MicroWedge MW15 stage monitor, developed by Rat Sound. Its coaxial driver pairs a 15-inch woofer with a 3-inch diaphragm compression driver on a 90-degree horn in a low-profile footprint. Features include switchable active or passive modes, and a large port that houses the input connectors, protecting them from damage. The trapezoidal Baltic Birch enclosures allow placing wedges in tight “arc” configurations, and integral rigging hardware enables flying when desired.

Line 6 X2 XDR955 Handheld Wireless

The Line 6 X2 XDR955 digital handheld mic system ($899 list) includes a cardioid transmitter and rackmount receiver with 10-20k Hz response, 24-bit A/D conversion and compression-free operation for a dynamic range exceeding 115 dB. Its dual-RF anti-jam broadcasts dual signals to four receivers that work simultaneously to avoid signal dropouts. Plus, the system uses a proprietary digital datastream that only recognizes signals embedded with a unique digital signature.

Behringer SX3282FX

Designed for studio or live applications, this low-noise design, 32-input, 8-bus studio/live mixer features XENYX mic preamps, British-style EQs and two 24-bit onboard digital effects processors. Stereo input channels have 4-band EQ; mono inputs have 3-band EQs with semi-parametric mid-band. There are eight aux sends per channel; four are pre/post-fader-switchable for flexible routing and an internal auto-range (100 to 240VAC) power supply adds maximum flexibility.
