Yorkville Sound has expanded the éXcursion line with the addition of an active 950-watt three-way complete P.A. system solution for live sound or mobile DJ applications.
The éXcursion1000 system is centered around one 15-inch subwoofer and two 8-inch/1-inch satellite loudspeakers. The core of the éXcursion1000 is the active subwoofer that also houses the electronics for the entire system.
Five separate power amplifiers integrate into the electronics of the active subwoofer. A single 650W power module drives the 15-inch subwoofer, while two 125W amplifiers drive the 8-inch mid-frequency drivers in the satellite speakers; two additional 25W amplifiers drive the satellite’s 1-inch horns.
An integrated electronic crossover network ensures an acoustically perfect transition between the subwoofer and the bi-amplified mid- and high components of the satellite speakers. Optolimiter circuitry in the crossover network provides an unobtrusive and “musical-sounding” compression that not only protects the speaker components, but also ensures balanced and clear reproduction from the satellite cabinets.
Inputs include XLR and 1/4-inch TRS balanced, and common mode rejection is 50/60-cycle hum rejection at the input. Separate gain controls for subwoofer and for the right and left satellite cabinets are accessible from the back panel. Warning lights show the user when the system is limiting or clipping at the input.
A detachable caster dolly is included with the system. All of the cabinets in the éXcursion1000 are made with plywood.
