COMMUNITY I SERIES MODULAR LOUDSPEAKERS
The new I SERIES “high-power/high-output” modular loudspeakers were “designed to provide exceptional musical quality and vocal clarity,” says Community. The I SERIES family includes point-source, high-directivity, compact and floor-monitor models in multiple performance levels, with a suite of matching height subwoofers, for modular scalability. Two-way models have large-format compression drivers, a choice of six rotatable horns and individually-voiced, beamwidth-matched crossovers with single or biamp operation. Three-way models offer a choice of three rotatable horn patterns and biamp or triamp operation and use a combination of large-format HF compression driver and Community’s M200HP midrange compression driver—both with ketone polymer diaphragms for exceptionally smooth and uniform sound quality.

AUDIX M3 TRI-ELEMENT CEILING MICROPHONE
The compact Audix M3 Tri-element Ceiling Microphone offers performance comparable to Audix’ M70, M40 and M55 ceiling mics, says Audix. Cited features include three gold diaphragm capsules, fully balanced circuitry, low-impedance output to allow long cable runs, full RF shielding and immunity, a plenum rated junction box with RJ45 connector, TAA compliance and simple installation and adjustment.

AUDIO-TECHNICA’S BP894 MICROSET CARDIOID HEADWORN MICROPHONE

The BP894 MicroSet Subminiature Cardioid Condenser Headworn Microphone from A-T features a rotating capsule housing with talk-side indicator for use on either ear and for optimizing polar pattern placement. The MicroSet BP894 is designed so the cardioid capsule can be aimed directly at the sound source (the microphone faces the mouth, rather than facing forward). A-T says the BP894’s “uniform pickup pattern provides excellent rejection of outside noise, with exceptional gain-before-feedback.” The BP894 MicroSet is available in black and theater beige. And comes with the AT8464 Dual-Ear Microphone Mount which can be attached “to provide maximum stability.” The specs include high-SPL capability (135 dB SPL ) and a frequency response is 20 Hz to 20 kHz.

RCF MEDIA SERIES LOUDSPEAKERS
RCF’s Media Series The new Media Series features nine models. The seven two-way cabinets all feature 1-inch compression drivers feeding a 90° x 90° horn. Various single and dual LF driver combinations are available; the smallest of the two-way enclosures features a 5.5-inch LF element and the largest a single 12-inch woofer (the M801 with a single 8-inch woofer is shown). The LF drivers in the three subwoofers in the series include a single 12-inch loaded cabinet and dual 10-inch and 12-inch models. RCF says the Media Series was designed to complement its Compact or H Series Models.
