WORK Pro updates NEO speaker range15 December 2014
WORK Pro has two new speakers for its NEO range of installation loudspeakers, as announced by Shure Distribution UK, the exclusive distributor for the Spanish manufacturer in the UK and Ireland.
The NEO 5 A ES and NEO 5 IP are compact speakers designed for installed sound applications as well as low-impedance or 100V installations. The arrivals suppliment the existing two-way NEO models and subwoofer in the range.
The NEO 5 A ES is an updated version of the existing NEO 5 A self-powered compact installation speaker, with an added energy-saving mode, which works by allowing the speaker to go into shutdown mode when not receiving audio signals, reducing its consumption to below 1W.
NEO 5 IP is the two-way passive model of the NEO range, and is rated IP65 on the industrial Ingress Protection scale, meaning that it is dustproof and resistant to light water jets. Therefore, it’s ideally suited to professional use in outdoor installations where wind and rain could be problematic for loudspeakers, such as on terraces and shopping centres.
Both NEO 5 IP and NEO 5 A ES are available in either black or white and are supplied with the bespoke NEO mounting bracket which allows the speakers to be flexibly positioned at any angle to maximise coverage.
“Our customers have been asking for a weather-resistant addition to the NEO range,” explained Juan José Vila, VP product and marketing at WORK Pro, “and similarly, a power-saving version of the speaker suits many installers, integrators and end users where speakers do not need to be constantly active.”
