New live sound products take center stage.
Renkus-Heinz was showing its CF/CFX Modular Point Source Array system, which is now shipping. Designed for small/midsized venues, the CF101-LA (powered) and CFX101-LA (unpowered) Modular Point Source arrays offer the performance and pattern control of a line array in a compact system with the flexibility to be flown, ground-stacked, or pole-mounted. Up to four of these 10in. two-way cabinets with 15-degree vertical dispersion can be arrayed for 90x60-degree coverage. Single or dual CF15S subs can combine with up to four CF101-LA cabinets to create a compact system rivaling a full-size line array.
When the topic of ceiling speakers comes up, the AES show isn’t the first show that comes to mind, but Community Professional Loudspeakers used the occasion to launch its new Distributed Design range of high-performance ceiling speakers. Designed to provide high-quality sound with very wide, uniform coverage, the series debuts innovative Drop-Stop and Twist-Assist features, making the installation process easier, faster, and safer. Each of the full-range (4.5/5/6/8/10in.) models in the series is a true coaxial design, with a compression driver concentrically located so that high frequencies emerge through the center of the low-frequency driver’s magnetic structure and cone. A 10in., ceiling-mount subwoofer (with 200W handling) is also offered for entertainment applications.
AES returns to New York next fall, but in the meantime, the next European AES is slated for May 13-16, 2011 in London. For more info, visit aes.org.
