EAW in Whitinsville, Mass., unveils the NTS250 powered subwoofer. The NTS250 is designed to serve as a companion subwoofer for any EAW system (and from several other manufacturers) and is designed for use in conjunction with EAW’s NTL720 compact line array. EAW offers its NTL720 and NTS250 as a comprehensively integrated system for sound reinforcement or fixed installation for corporate A/V, clubs, ballrooms, theaters, performing arts centers, houses of worship and more.
The NTS250 is a high output yet compact and lightweight subwoofer offering a push-pull pair of high-efficiency neodymium 15-inch woofers; 2,000 watts of amplification; system optimization DSP and EAW Pilot software-accessible front-end DSP; the proprietary U-Net audio and communications network; a professional rigging system; and push-button two-box cardioid and hypercardioid configurability; and a comprehensively integrated, RoadCoat-clad package.
The NTS250 is the first EAW subwoofer on the U-Net network, which allows for very simple system configuration with other U-Net enabled products. U-Net offers access to monitoring and control features, as well as conventional front-end processing for system tuning, which EAW says potentially obviates the need for external system controllers.
The NTS250’s native rigging solution allows the user to fly homogeneous arrays of the NTS250, and the addition of a simple, low-cost kit allows for the suspension of an NTL720 array beneath a subwoofer array. This simple two-box cardioid and hypercardioid configurability is said to be an industry first.
Additionally, the network capability and EAW Pilot control software offer subwoofer array options that include larger cardioid and shotgun arrays, as well as large linear or two-dimensional arrays and possible user-configurable directivity.
