New Hybrid speakers from One Systems11 January 2016
The newly launched One Systems Hybrid loudspeaker series is making its debut ISE appearance in Hall 7. The series has effectively merged the company’s direct-weather loudspeakers with One Systems’ marine-grade features.
Doug MacCallum, president of One Systems, said: “We take considerable pride in providing the industry with the very best direct weather loudspeaker products available. Until recently, this meant providing multiple versions of products in order to meet systems integrators specific needs. Fortunately, recent advancements in materials and investment in high-technology production equipment make it possible for us to enhance our core products in a way that allows us to meet these needs while cutting back on the number of versions of each product available.”
The new line of direct weather loudspeakers features 304-grade stainless steel covered in a new poly coating that prevents against corrosion like marine-grade stainless. This translates into products capable of withstanding the level of moisture and corrosion that was in the past only associated with the higher grade marine versions of each product.
In addition, all hanging hardware is now manufactured in 316-grade stainless only, ensuring that all units can be hung outdoors in any venue anywhere in the world. An additional design enhancement includes internal transformers that will allow system integrators to select between 4ohm/8ohm (depending upon the model) or switch over to 70V or 100V.
“These improvements allow us to focus our production more efficiently on production and maintaining comprehensive stock levels of all models in both black and white colours,” added MacCallum. “It simplifies the ordering process for our dealers and international distributors and lets end-users know that their system is impervious to the ill effects of weather.
“To our knowledge, One Systems is the only manufacturer in the professional audio industry to offer this kind of solution for all of its products.”
