FBT Audio UK will be displaying a wide range of audio products at this year’s BPM|PRO show, taking place at Birmingham’s NEC Arena from 11th to 13th September. Alongside their stand (AJ06), the company will also be present in the pro audio demo space, carrying out demonstrations of its renowned Muse and Mitus line array systems.
New to the UK market is FBT Audio’s Vertus CS1000 compact line array, which allows for ultimate ease of storage and transportation, with the a storage compartment provided within the subwoofer enclosure to securely house both the satellite speaker and its supplied mounting pole. With a design like this, the system is ideally suited for live performers on the move.
Also on show will be FBT’s Ventis range of passive and active speakers – the VENTIS 115a, 112a, 110a and 206a. Using a combination of B&C compression drivers and FBT’s own custom, long excursion woofers, the 115a, 112a and 110a models are two-way, bass reflex designs housed in 15mm birch plywood enclosures. A full grille design backed by specially treated acoustic cloth delivers the characteristic FBT style, while fully rotatable constant directivity horns ensure accurate coverage.
More newcomers to the FBT range will include the ProMaxX range, which represents FBT’s latest refinements to a long established leader in polypropylene housed enclosures. Equipped with custom FBT speakers complete with B&C’s compression driver technology, at the heart of the ProMaxX series is a purpose-built FBT amplifier module with a switch-mode power supply. For the low frequency section, 700W RMS is driven via a highly efficient Class-D topology, boasting extremely low THD. For HF, 200W RMS is delivered by a Class-H/AB design chosen to ensure the highest definition of audio performance at high frequencies. Models available will include the ProMaxX 114A, 112A and 110A.
Another new product, the Q118SA subwoofer, will also be on show at BPM|PRO. The optimisation of the woofer load volume and port tube with BEM finite element simulation, and the careful development of the grille and the protective fabric to minimise acoustic impedance, means the Q118SA has improved performance compared with previous models, according to the company.
Also making their UK debut at the show is the TC-22 replacement mic capsule for JTS, Shure and Sennheiser wireless systems and the R-4 UHF 4 channel diversity system from JTS.
