From Renkus-Heinz comes the PN121M complex conic loudspeaker that features a 120-degree x 60-degree horn that can be rotated 90 degrees. Class A/B amplification enables a peak maximum SPL of 128dB. The Renkus-Heinz Audio Operations Network (RHAON) allows digital audio distribution, loudspeaker-specific DSP, and remote control and monitoring over standard Ethernet hardware and cabling.
The Samson Technologies Live! L615 features balanced line and mic level inputs with phantom power available on the mic input and independent level control. An output switch selects mix or thru for the balanced line out connector. The frequency response is 52Hz to 19kHz from the custom designed 15in. bass transducer and the 1.4in. titanium compression high-frequency driver.
The VXP 15Q from Tannoy features a 15in. PowerDual full-range driver that features a Q-Centric Waveguide for a true point source. An integrated Lab.gruppen IDEEA module provides Class D amplification. The frequency range is 47Hz to 30kHz, and the rated maximum SPL is 131 peak.
The Turbosound Milan Mi0 features an injection-molded polypropylene enclosure housing a 10in. low-frequency driver and a 1in. compression high-frequency driver. Also featured is an integral dual-angle pole-mount socket. The frequency response is 55Hz to 22kHz with a maximum SPL of 125dB peak. Coverage is 90 degrees horizontal and 60 degrees vertical. I/O includes mic, line, and mix out.
Wharfdale Pro’s Titan 15D features Class D amplification for low frequencies and Class A/B for high frequencies. Inputs include combo 1/4in.-XLR and summed dual RCA jacks. The output is switchable loop or mix. The electronics feature Qubit 28/56-bit 192kHz DSP and BRO adaptive Bass Response Optimizer.
The Yamaha DXR10 is a bi-amped system featuring a frequency response of 56Hz to 20kHz and a maximum output of 131db SPL. D-Contour DSP assisted EQ provides presets for FOH/main or monitor applications. The symmetrical ABS enclosures allow for mirror-mode floor monitor placement. The dual-angle pole-mount socket provides two positions for aiming the speakers toward the audience and M-8 rigging points for installation. The constant directivity horn provides 90-degree horizontal by 60-degree vertical coverage. The DXR10 also features an integral three-channel mixer. (Read a review of the DXR series.)
