New Radius loudspeaker range from EAW27 June 2016
EAW has debuted a new range called Radius, which includes point source, line source, stage monitor and subwoofer loudspeakers.
The Radius Series includes 8” and 12” two-way point source loudspeakers that are available in two horn patterns, a double 8” articulated line array, single 12” and 18” subwoofer models and will soon add a 12” co-axial stage monitor.
The RSX208L line array module incorporates 2x 8” woofers and 2x 1.4” voice coil compression drivers into a compact 3-way package. The design uses the power of both 8” woofers to deliver low frequency reinforcement, while integrating tailored DSP to provide clean mid-range and maintaining both the wide coverage pattern and inherent acoustical symmetry.
The RSX208L and RSX12 include array self-detection via on-board infrared sensors and accelerometers that enable new OptiLogic technology to pre-optimize the array and air loss compensation processing to dramatically reduce setup and tuning time.
The point source models are the 8” 2-way RSX86 and 89 (60 x 45 and 90 x 60 respectively) and the 12” 2-way RSX126 and 129, which feature the same directivity options as their smaller siblings. The horns can be rotated to facilitate horizontal installation while maintaining the preferred directivity.
The subwoofers are a single 12”in RSX12 and the single 18” RSX18, which offers push-button cardioid functionality in stacks of two or three via simple rear-panel controls.
TJ Smith, president and general manager of EAW said: “The value of Radius is far greater than the sum of its parts. Many manufacturers are producing high featured products, but very few are producing products that are self-aware of their location in the system and use that information to optimise system wide performance in a given venue.”
