Frankfurt (March 25, 2010)—Adamson has introduced its new Eklipsa series of horizontal arrays and expanded its M Series family of floor monitors.
The Eklipsa array is available in both a 12” bi-amped version and a 15” bi-amped version. Both arrays feature Adamson’s Advanced Cone Architecture and patented High Frequency Wave Shaping technology, along with a proprietary, ND12, 12” neodymium low-mid transducer and ND15, 15” neodymium low-mid transducer. Each waveguide is loaded with a 4” diaphragm neodymium compression driver allowing for extremely high output.
Eklipsa offers a very tight 18 degree x 60 degree horn pattern. While the primary implementation of the product is aimed at horizontal arrays, multiple cabinets can be flown in a vertical array, although additional hardware is required. The Eklipsa series targets touring companies, theatres, nightclubs and live performance venues that do not require the longer throw of a line source system.
The company states, “Extreme accuracy with tight pattern control is ideal for indoor venues such as houses of worship, where various non ideal surfaces such as large glass windows and hard walls, can cause reflection issues. In clubs and theatres, low ceiling height or missing hanging points can be a bother when trying to fly a vertical line array. The Eklipsa solves these problems.”
Meanwhile, the M212 is the latest addition to the M-Series family. Sporting a pair of ND12, 12” neodymium low-mid transducers, each featuring Adamson’s Advanced Cone Architecture, the twin 12 monitor is teamed with a 65-degree conical waveguide loaded with a 3” diaphragm compression driver. The M212 is a bi-amped cabinet weighing in at 74 lbs.
