One of the claims to fame for Califone’s PA419 is an Apple-approved dock for use with iPhones and iPods. It also includes two wireless handheld mics and an XLR input for a third wired mic. RCA and 1/8in. aux inputs and RCA outputs are available on the control panel along with a voice priority switch that decreases the music level when one of the mic inputs is active. What’s more, the system can run on either AC or rechargeable batteries. Califone has also shoehorned a DVD/CD player into the enclosure complete with a remote control.
Danley Sound Labs offers a powered version of its SH-95 synergy horn. The system provides a 95-degree x 55-degree coverage pattern and a frequency response of 55Hz to 24kHz. The maximum SPL is 126dB, program. The driver complement includes two 8in. low-frequency drivers and one 1in. high-frequency unit. In addition to functioning as part of a compact main PA system, the loudspeaker is suited for downfill, frontfill, and delay applications.
The D.A.S. Audio Action 12A’s Class D biamplifiers provides 131dB peak and a frequency response of 50Hz to 20kHz. The coverage is 80 degrees x 50 degrees. The birch ply multi-angle enclosure can be used as a monitor and also includes a pole-mount socket and rigging points. Lows are handled by a Mi-12A D.A.S 12in. driver and a M-34 1in. exit compression driver for the highs.
The Cromo 15+ from dB Technologies has a frequency response of 45Hz to 20,000Hz and a maximum SPL of 128dB. The system comprises a 1in. high-frequency driver mounted to a 90/70-degree x 60-degree asymmetrical CD horn and a 15in. low-frequency driver powered by a Class D convention-cooled amp. The polypropylene enclosure angles up 43 degrees for use as a floor monitor.
EAW’s two-way self-powered JF26NT provides 60x45 degrees of coverage and an operating frequency range of 55Hz to 20kHz. The biamplified system incorporates DSP signal processing with EAW Focusing with a peak SPL of 130dB. EAW Pilot and U-Net are included for networking, communications, and control. Optional adjustable legs are available for use as a stage monitor.
The Electro-Voice ZxA1-90 features a 90-degree x 50-degree rotatable waveguide mounted to a DH-2005 1in. exit compression driver for two coverage patterns and Class D amplification for a maximum measured SPL of 126dB and a frequency range of 48Hz to 20kHz. The EV8L 8in. woofer provides low frequencies. The ABS enclosure includes a pole mount and 45-degree angle for floor monitor applications as well as four suspension points for permanent installation.
