Nashville, TN (March 18, 2013)—Morris Light & Sound, based in Nashville, has acquired the first Nexo STM loudspeaker system in North America. The 200+-box STM system includes 68 STM M46, 80 STM B112 bass, 48 STM S118 subs, 22 Nuar Racks, 12 PS10R2 speakers, 18 RS18 Ray Subs, and 16 Geo S12 loudspeakers.
A pair of Yamaha DME64N Digital Mix Engines have also been purchased to run 16 channels of Lake Mesa EQ for zone control when required. The company also owns 24 Nexo 45-N12 line monitors.
The Nexo STM Series (Scale Through Modularity) loudspeaker cabinets are intended for creating line array systems to scale up or down depending on event audience size, from 1,000 to 100,000 people, according to the company. The STM system can be configured from three discrete loudspeaker elements: M46 main, B112 bass, S118 sub-bass modules with plans to release addition STM components in the near future. System configurations can comprise arrays of main cabinets only, main plus bass, or bass plus main plus bass.
