ISE 2018: Adamson to preview new point source models2 February 2018
Adamson Systems Engineering is adding two point source loudspeakers to its IS-Series, with previews of the IS7p and IS10p at ISE as well as IS118 and IS119 subwoofers.
“The response to our IS-Series throughout Europe has been tremendous, and ISE is the perfect opportunity to preview these new point source models,” said Adamson’s sales director, EMEA, Jasper Ravesteijn. “We want to offer integrators an advance look at these products so they can experience their performance in a real-world environment and work them into their specifications for upcoming projects.”
The IS7 and IS10 two-way, full-range line array cabinets and IS118 and IS119 subwoofers are said to pack Adamson’s tour-grade technology into a sleek package with unobtrusive rigging solutions, keeping the focus on the architecture in any given application.
The IS7p is a two-way point source cabinet with two ND7-LM16 7in Kevlar Low-Mid drivers and one NH3-8 1.4in exit compression driver. The IS10p is a two-way point source cabinet containing two ND10-LM 10in Kevlar Low-Mid drivers and again one NH3-8 1.4in exit compression driver.
Both loudspeakers feature newly designed waveguides, which have been refined through boundary element analysis (BEM). The rotatable waveguides are available with nominal dispersion patterns of 70° x 40° or 100° x 50°, respectively. The choices in dispersion pattern enable the IS7p and IS10p to be used as main systems or to supplement larger setups as fill cabinets in theatres, musicals, and houses of worship as well as clubs, large meeting rooms, and arenas.
The cabinets feature marine-grade birch plywood and aircraft-grade aluminium and steel. The models come equipped with Speakon NL4 connectors (IS7p and IS10p) or barrier strips (IS7pb and IS10pb). A plate-and-screw rigging system is placed on four faces of the enclosure, with a multitude of accessories allowing the enclosure to be deployed seamlessly in a variety of applications.
