WorxAudio Upgrades TL1801 Woofer

The new TL1801A long-excursion, high-output sub bass loudspeaker has a high-temperature neodymium magnet surrounding an underhung voice coil encased in a low-carbon steel structure. The 52-pound, 18-inch diameter unit's driver has two inches of peak-to-peak, fully linear excursion, and the TL1801A is presently incorporated into the company's TrueLine Series TL218SS and TL118SS sub bass enclosures.

Switchcraft Ships A/V Direct Box

Now shipping, the SC700CT A/V direct box is ideal for connecting the outputs of MP3 players, PCs, laptops, CD players and other audio devices to gear with XLR inputs. The SC700CT converts high-impedance stereo or mono line-level audio devices and musical instruments having ⅛-inch stereo, RCA or ¼-inch connections to a low-impedance/balanced/isolated mono mic-level signal. Ground lift and -20dB pad switches are standard, as is a rugged case with recessed connectors.

QSC Flyable Four-Way Speaker

The DCS SC-424-8F flyable, four-way tri-amplified speaker system is designed for large-format cinemas that require suspended mounting of screen channels or point-source surrounds. The MHV-1090F mid-high/very high-frequency system has a horn-loaded 10-inch midrange cone driver and a coaxial neodymium HF/VHF compression driver. The dual-15 LF-4215-8F LF enclosure is designed for safe, easy suspension via M10 fly points. The system can be arrayed horizontally or vertically.
