Adamson's New Energia Series e218 Sub
New York, NY (April 19, 2013)—At this year’s Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany, Canada-based Adamson Systems Engineering launched three new products and the full Point Concentric line. These products include additions to the Energia Series with the e12 line source, the e218 sub, the A218 and the PC5, PC6, PC8, PC10 and PC12.
The new e12 is designed as a stand alone mid-size line array, but can also be used as downfill of sidefill with a larger e15 arena system. It is a versatile solution for large format touring companies and regional rental companies. Inside the box is Adamson’s new 12” Kevlar driver, the ND12S with advanced cooling and larger xmax, providing LF extension, in a 12’ line source system. The 12” cone and dustcap are manufactured entirely out of Kevlar creating a weather resistant low frequency component.
The Energia e218 was designed as a companion sub for the Energia Series e15 and e12 and can be flown together with an e12 or a stand-alone array. The self-contained rigging allows for curved or flat array when it’s flown but will also travel three up on a cart. Within the manifold design are two of Adamson’s new ND18S drivers with a dual spider voice coil stabilizing design. The drivers are coated in silicone for long term suspension memory and shorting rings are used to eliminate eddy currents and reduce intermodulation distortion.
The A218 is an all-purpose sub that is front loaded with two of Adamson’s new ND18S drivers. The drivers have a dual spider that is coated in Silicone for long term suspension memory. The drivers are equipped with Kevlar cones with Adamson’s signature advanced cone architecture. Shorting rings were integrated to eliminate eddy currents and reduce intermodulation distortion. Cardioid plugs are included on the front of the cabinet to ensure easy cabling in front/back configurations.
The Point Concentric Series passive, co-axial, loudspeakers are designed for both installation and rental markets to the Adamson tool box. The multipurpose cabinets are available in a double 5" (PC5), single 6" (PC6), single 8" (PC8), single 10" (PC10) and a single 12" (PC12) version.
The PC5 and PC6 are the smallest cabinets in the Point Concentric Series, and provide a 70-degree conical pattern in a very compact package. Both cabinets ship with standard M10 fly points in 4 locations and additional rear Omnimount points. Threaded Pole mount hardware (for mic stand) or barrier strips can be installed, at no charge, on either cabinet by request. The PC5/PC6 cabinets are designed to produce linear, high resolution audio throughout their bandwidth.
When a little more power is required, designers and rental companies can step it up and reach for the 8", 10" or 12" option in the Point Concentric Series. The larger members of the family, the PC8, PC10 and PC12, are shipped with standard M10 and Omnimount points, but also offer optional vertical yokes for versatility. Unlike their smaller companions, the PC8, PC10 and PC12 ship with standard pole mount hardware. A rotatable jack plate allows for either Neutrik or Barrier Strip connections on the bottom or back of each enclosure.
