Buena Park, CA (March 30, 2006)–NEXO S.A. and allied partner Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems have expanded the NEXO GEO Series loudspeaker line. The new GEO D and GEO Sub are debuting at Musikmesse Frankfurt Pro Light and Sound this week. Target markets include performance venues, educational facilities, houses of worship, public spaces and regional sound reinforcement companies.
Nexo GEO DThe GEO D is intended to fill the gap between the existing GEO S and GEO T product lines, in terms of both cost and system SPL capability. The GEO Sub is a subbass cabinet for use with the GEO D and other NEXO products, including GEO T.
Design features include low- and mid-frequency output from single 12-in. components mounted to proprietary GEO Directivity Phase Devices; hyper-cardioid low frequency control from side-mount 8-in. drivers; single-component array design, with simple, ergonomic flying and stage-stackable rigging systems; coherent wave propagation from NEXO’s proprietary Hyperboloid Reflective Wavesource; and compatibility with EtherSound connectivity, GeoSoft2 software and GeoSite inclinometer.
The GEO D features a single 12-in. and two rear 8-in. neodymium drivers for low frequency pattern control, along with a 3-in. voice coil and 1.4-in. throat driver mounted on a hyperboloid reflective wavesource. The GEO D provides an overall frequency response of 60Hz – 19kHz and input sensitivity of 105dB SPL (1W @ 1m), with a configurable horizontal dispersion of 90-120 degrees. Connections include AMPHENOL EP6 6-pole.
The GEO Sub will provide low-end support for GEO D systems with cardioid sub and low frequency pattern control as a stand-alone unit, or when integrated within a GEO D array. The cardioid pattern control is said to focus energy to the front, while reducing SPL behind the cabinet. Components include a single 18-in. and dual 12-in. drivers, providing a reported sensitivity of 103dB SPL (1W @ 1m), and with an overall frequency response of 33Hz to 250Hz. Connections include two NL4MP SPEAKON 4-pole.
The 10 degree trapezoidal GEO D and GEO Sub cabinets are constructed of Baltic Birch ply and covered in a structured black coating, with molded black metal grills. All cabinets include an integrated flying system, with angle adjustments ranging from 0.20 to 10 degrees.
