Greensboro, NC â€“ July 2008â€¦ WorxAudio Technologies, a leading manufacturer of loudspeaker systems for the pro touring and install markets, proudly introduces the M80X2-P Line Array. A new addition to WorxAudio Technologiesâ€™ TrueLineâ„¢ Series, the new M80X2-P is a two-way, high efficiency, ultra compact, line array loudspeaker system designed for the most natural sounding reproduction of speech and music program material. This exceptional new 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 WorxAudio Technologies M80X2-P Line array incorporates two modules, each with a medium format, 1-inch exit compression driver coupled to a stabilized proprietary FlatWaveâ„¢ 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. â„¢) 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 M80X2-P loudspeaker system provides a total of two high frequency drivers and four bass driversâ€”all housed in a rugged enclosure.
The new M80X2-Pâ€™s throw capabilities mark a dramatic departure from conventional line array systems of this size and class. The upper module of the M80X2-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 new M80X2-Pâ€™s exemplary dispersion characteristics make this enclosure an outstanding choice for a wide range of sound reinforcement applicationsâ€”delivering pristine audio quality with even coverage that eludes many competing systems.
The new M80X2-Pâ€™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 ProTexâ„¢ finish â€” available in black or whiteâ€”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 Technologiesâ€™ TrueLine Series loudspeakers, the new M80X2-P ships with a first-rate complement of custom-designed flyware. The M80X2-Pâ€˜s black or white powered coated, aluminum TrueAimâ„¢ grid incorporates a series of holes that control the angle of the suspended enclosure. The systemâ€™s included EASE Focus aiming software incorporates all the various parametersâ€”including weight, distribution, and rigging pointsâ€”and provides a single-step â€œAuto Focusâ€? 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.
Designed expressly for use with the M80X2-P is WorxAudio Technologiesâ€™ highly-regarded PMD-1 digital power amp. Housed in the rear of the enclosure, the PMD-1 eliminates the headache of selecting the right amplifier/signal processing to mate with the loudspeaker and saves space as well. Featuring 500 watts of pulse pounding adrenalin for the low frequencies and 250 watts for the highs, this powerhouse amplifier incorporates twin digital program processors, a mute switch for each output, a detented volume control, an XLR transformer with isolated I/O, and industry-standard AC PowerCon switchgear I/O.
Hugh Sarvis, WorxAudio Technologiesâ€™ CEO and Director of Engineering, commented on the new TrueLine M80X2-P, â€œThe new M80X2-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, Iâ€™m confident this system delivers the performance and value todayâ€™s SR professionals are looking for.â€?
The new WorxAudio Technologies TrueLine M80X2-P Install Line Array carries a MSRP of $6,490. The M80X2-P is available now.
