With its new PXD8080 power amplifier, the X2-P is a two-way, high efficiency, ultra compact, “All In One” line array loudspeaker system designed for the most natural sounding reproduction of speech and music program material. This exceptional loudspeaker system excels at a wide variety of sound reinforcement applications, including small to medium sized performance venues and clubs, houses of worship, theaters, cabarets, as well as meeting and presentation facilities.
The upgraded WorxAudio X2-P incorporates the completely new PXD8080 Dual Channel Power Amplifier. The new 2-channel design features 800 x 800 watts and employs a 3rd generation digital Class D amplifier with 88% “Green” efficiency. The included DSP (Digital Signal Processing) capabilities deliver high dynamic range with low noise. The PMD8080 employs a 64-bit processor, offers a 121 dB dynamic range with a 96 kHz sampling rate. The PMD8080 can store up to 99 factory presets that can be easily accessed via the LCD screen on the amplifier’s face plate or, alternatively, by its CAT-5 Ethernet port (RJ-45). The PMD8080 has a regulated power supply with a universal voltage range of 88V – 170V.
The WorxAudio Technologies X2-P Line array incorporates two modules, each with a medium format, 1-inch exit compression driver coupled to a stabilized proprietary FlatWave™ Former (wave shaping device) that delivers clear, penetrating high frequencies over a predictable and controlled coverage area. These compression drivers are paired with dual 8-inch cone transducers coupled to the (A.I.M. ™) Acoustic Intergrading Module that minimizes cone filtering throughout the entire operating spectrum and provides a rich, fully balanced sound with a frequency range that spans from 45 Hz to 20 kHz (-10 dB). Hence, the X2-P loudspeaker system provides a total of two high frequency drivers and four bass drivers—all housed in a rugged enclosure.
The X2-P’s throw capabilities mark a dramatic departure from conventional line array systems of this size and class. The upper module of the X2-P provides 10-degree vertical dispersion while the lower module delivers a 25-degree vertical pattern. Combined, the two modules create a 30-degree vertical system with an unusually broad horizontal dispersion of 150 degrees. The X2-P’s exemplary dispersion characteristics make this enclosure an outstanding choice for a wide range of sound reinforcement applications—delivering pristine audio quality with even coverage that eludes many competing systems.
The new X2-P’s cabinet is the result of painstaking attention to detail and is intended to provide years of great-sounding, trouble-free service. The loudspeaker enclosure is constructed from sturdy multi-ply Baltic Birch and is heavily braced for cabinet rigidity. Protecting the enclosure is a multi-layered, two part polyurea ProTex™ finish — available in black or white—designed to withstand the most demanding applications. A 14-gauge, perforated, cloth-backed, powder coated steel grill with a high transmission ratio protects the transducer complement.
Characteristic of WorxAudio Technologies’ TrueLine Series loudspeakers, the X2-P ships with a first-rate complement of custom-designed flyware. The X2-P’s black or white powered coated, aluminum TrueAim™ grid incorporates a series of holes that control the angle of the suspended enclosure. The system’s included EASE Focus aiming software incorporates all the various parameters—including weight, distribution, and rigging points—and provides a single-step “Auto Focus” process that details the optimum angle to suspend the enclosure at, which is accomplished by setting the TrueAim grid at the recommended hole. The entire process is quick, easy, and ensures optimum coverage throughout the space.
Hugh Sarvis, WorxAudio Technologies’ CEO and Director of Engineering, commented on the TrueLine X2-P, “The upgraded X2-P Line Array is a compact, high performance loudspeaker system that makes a terrific choice for a wide range of sound reinforcement applications. The system offers a broad coverage pattern and, with the included EASE Focus aiming software and the integrated flyware, makes installation quick and easy. With a clean, unobtrusive appearance that blends seamlessly into a broad range of environments and first-rate components that deliver outstanding audio quality, I’m confident this system—with its new and improved power amplifier—delivers the performance and value today’s SR professionals are looking for.”
The WorxAudio Technologies TrueLine X2-P Install Line Array carries a MSRP of $6,490. The X2-P is available now.
