L-Acoustics launches X Series coaxial speaker range at PL+S15 April 2015
L-Acoustics has announced the launch of the X Series of coaxial speakers for the installation and rental markets at Prolight + Sound.
The three new enclosures in the X Series family represent the most recent engineering innovations at L-Acoustics and directly benefit from the research and development breakthroughs that led to the launch of K2 last year.
“The challenge in creating the X Series was to bring all of the experience we gained in designing the K2 to bear on a new series of reference coaxials,” explained Christophe Combet, head of acoustic and instrumentation at L-Acoustics. “We optimised the design, ergonomics, acoustical performance and weight. We used new carpentry techniques to optimise internal volumes, maximise bass and eliminate vibrations, designing a new, aerodynamic form with a slender, low profile that gives a profound feeling of power.”
The X8 live monitor delivers pristine sound with the L-Acoustics signature, a high SPL and extended bandwidth for operation at FOH position or in control rooms.
The X12 can cover multiple applications in rental and installation. An ellipsoid directivity of 90° x 60° makes it adaptable to FOH application. The X12 comes with a complete range of rigging accessories and RAL color program for maximum application versatility and seamless integration.
The X15 is the most powerful in the series, with exceptional power in beamwidth and acoustic isolation. Its narrow, 40° x 60° directivity makes it ideal for the stage with reduced feedback. Low in profile, light in weight, rugged in build, the X15 boasts integrated risers allowing it to go from 35° to 55° for maximum versatility.
“The X Series is the result of an intense R&D process, fully based on feedback from the professionals of the industry and from our own field experience,” continued Combet. “We look forward to working with our installation and rental partners worldwide on the launch later this year.”
