APG unveils iX speakers at JTSE
APG is previewing its iX range of coaxial speakers for fixed installation at the JTSE trade show for show and event technology, held in Paris, November 26 to 27.
The range includes five models: iX5, iX6, iX8, iX12 and iX15. All units are two acoustic way speakers loaded in bass-reflex for low-frequency extension. APG has also said it will launch the iX2.5 and IX2.6, which will be optimised for vocal applications.
APG has tipped the speakers for use as the main FOH or distributed sound reinforcement (front fill, out fill, in fill, under balcony, delay lines) in all types of venues (theatres, concert venues, clubs, bars, restaurants, conference rooms, congress centres). It is also possible to combine iX speakers with APG’s Uniline and Uniline Compact systems. Cabinets can come in customisable colours and a weatherproof finish.
All iX speakers are compatible with APG’s SB subwoofers and the company provides all standard processor settings of APG electronics and customised settings for other brands such as Powersoft.
APG’s iX5 is a miniature, 2-way full range and passive loudspeaker fitted with a 5-in long excursion LF driver and a coaxial dome tweeter (120-degree conical dispersion).
The iX6 is fitted with a 6.5-in driver loaded in a bass-reflex while HF is handled by a coaxial dome tweeter (105-degree conical acoustic opening). It offers clear and precise sound reproduction of mid / high frequencies up to 20 KHz.
A coaxial device fitted with 8-in cone driver and independent HF compression driver forms the base of the iX8. The coaxial mounting offers a homogenous dispersion coverage of 110-degrees.
The iX12 is a 2-way, full-range compact loudspeaker fitted with a coaxial coupling of 12-in and a 1-in HF compression driver (filtered). APG says the non-diffraction baffling creates a perfectly coherent acoustic field with a conical dispersion of 100-degrees and a minimal feedback effect of 4dB.
Finally, the iX15 is a 2-way full range speaker fitted with 15-in neodymium driver including a forced thermal ventilation system and a 1.4-in neodymium HF compression driver. This results in an exceptional sound pressure capacity down to 60Hz and up to 19KHz.
