Exclusive: Flare Audio announces X2A system for ABTT5 June 2014
Flare Audio has revealed to PSNEurope that its new X2A Compact Vertical Point Source system – which brings the “same realism and clarity” of the company’s X5A large venue system and S1 studio system to small live performance – will launch at the ABTT Theatre Show.
The X2A system comprises the X2A Compact Vertical Point Source Array, Q12 bass and X0A Mini Compact Vertical Point Source Array speaker.
Flare says the combined system is a “refined tool for engineers and sound designers” which, using its patent-pending Space, Vortex and Nanoflow technologies, allows sound to be produced with a minimum of interference from box pressure and resonance. It adds: “The purity of sound provides a platform for expression, allowing engineers to work with the sound created by the artist, not the loudspeaker.”
Kristin Hanson, director of Flare Audio, comments: “The X2A system brings the same realism and clarity of the X5A large venue system and the S1 studio system to small live performance, and marks the availability of the Flare X Series for any application and size of venue.
“Because both the X2A and X0A are vertical point source arrays, they offer a completely modular solution for both touring and installation applications – whether that be a distributed installation or a line array for a touring production. This modularity, along with the compact size of the X Series, offers an ideal building-block system and cost savings for all productions.’
The ABTT Theatre Show, organised by the Association of British Theatre Technicians, takes place at the Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, London, on 11–12 June.
