Eighth Day Sound’s E15 line-source system
The key components of Energia include a series of new loudspeaker systems, with networkable Class-D amplifier modules, DSP, cable and power distribution, AVB network hardware with software integration of control, 3-D simulation and diagnostics. There are three phases involved in the release of the first loudspeaker system in Project Energia: phase 1, mechanical field testing; phase 2, Class-D amplifier, power distribution and ground-control field testing; and phase 3, network and network-hardware field testing.
In July 2011 , Phase 1 began when Adamson unveiled the E15 line-source system with a series of strategic beta partners. 8th Day Sound (Highland Heights, Ohio), Wigwam Acoustics (UK), Fluge (Spain) and Big Daddy Productions (Indonesia) have all taken delivery of the E15. The new system will be found on a variety of fall tours and large-format events around the world. Additional Energia Beta systems are now in place with distribution partners DV2 in France, Adamson Europe GmbH in Germany and in Singapore with longtime partner Team 108.
