New Sound Reinforcement Products


Medium-Throw Reinforcement System

Syva from L-Acoustics ($TBA) features six 5-inch MF speakers providing usable bandwidth to 87 Hz and three 1.75-inch HF diaphragm compression drivers. Optimized for extended  throw and wide horizontal coverage, the transducer arrangement produces a 140°x26° (+5/-21°) directivity pattern. The companion Syva Low enclosure offers two K2 12-inch drivers designed to provide low-frequency contour and extended  bandwidth down to 40 Hz. Syva can be wall- or pole-mounted, as well as flown or used alone with its baseplate. Alternatively, Syva can be mounted easily on top of Syva Low or Syva Sub using the AutoCon- nect plug-and-play audio and physical link.


Three-Way, Line Array Component

The DIVA M2 (m-squared) from Amadeus ($TBA) features an HF ensemble tweeter with two voice coils, each with its own magnet assembly and its own specialized phasing plug, which transforms the circular planar wavefront into a rectangular planar wavefront. The tweeter features a unique combination of extended  frequency response, high efficiency and wide dispersion. The driver is a two-way system featuring a 3.5-inch (90mm) voice coil, covering the frequency range between 750 and 6,500 Hz with a smooth, linear response. The annular diaphragm for the high range, featuring a 1.75-inch voice coil, offers transient response from 6 to 22 kHz. Rounding out the bottom end is the DIVA M2 SUB, equipped with two 12-inch transducers mounted in a bass-reflex enclosure.


Reduced Weight, Smooth Response

Clair Brothers has released the C12 and C8 line array products featuring a custom waveguide precision-machined using Baltic birch plywood. Clairs True Fit Technology promises maximum coverage for audience areas and minimizes architectural reflection and anomalies. The C12 double 12-inch format line array and the C8 double 8-inch line array can be ordered with a variety of horizontal waveguide patterns. Standard factory waveguides are 90º and 120º, but a range of waveguides between 60º and 140º are also available.


Standalone Unit or Sidecar for CS-R10

The new CS-R10-S control surface from Yamaha ($TBA) is approximately two-thirds the size of the existing CS-R10. A Dual Console function allows two CS-R10 and/or CS-R10-S control surfaces to be connected to a single DSP-R10 DSP engine so that separate CS-R10-S control surfaces can be used at both front-of-house and monitor mix positions. A CS-R10-S can also be used as a sidecar for a CS-R10.
