EAW Compact Line Array and Sub

EAW is shipping its JFL210 Compact Constant Curvature line array and matching JFL118 subwoofer, a lightweight package designed for small and medium venues, both portable and installed. Two neodymium 10-inch woofers and a 3-inch diaphragm compression driver/horn on the JFL210 modules form high-SPL, easily configured arrays with predictable output and coherence, with horizontally symmetric, consistent coverage when flown, pole-mounted or ground-stacked. Options include the JFL118 single-18 flyable sub and UX8800 (4-in/8-out) digital processor/system manager/controller.

Peavey IPR Power Amps

The resonant switch-mode power supplies and high-speed, Class-D topologies of Peavey‘s IPR Series amps dramatically reduce weight (the IPR 1600 is only seven pounds) while increasing output power, reliability and thermal efficiency. The 2-channel amps offer onboard 100Hz crossovers, variable-speed fans, DDT™ speaker protection and DC/clip/temp safeguards. Beyond the standard IPR 1600/3000/4400/6000 models are versions with built-in, 32-bit, floating-point DSP offering EQ presets, delays, crossovers and more — accessible from a front panel LCD screen.

Turbosound TCS Models

Turbosound‘s new TCS Series offers a variety of products for fixed installations, ranging from a high-power, three-way, bi-amp/tri-amp switchable system to 12- and 15-inch active/passive two-ways and an ultracompact, 6.5-inch passive model to two single-15 arrayable subs and a large-format, double-18 sub. New Dendritic waveguides deliver improved arrayability, with true Turbosound voicing. Options include rotatable 90×60/60×40/90×40 horns in the trapezoidal cabinets, Class-D self-powering with network control, weather resistance, flying hardware and a wide choice of colors.
