NOVA, a division of CRAAFT Audio GmbH, is proud to launch their new PARIZ Line Array and M318SUB Active Subwoofer.
When developing the PARIZ system concept, NOVA’s engineers and technology partners created not only a new loudspeaker system. Hand in hand with world’s leading suppliers and international specialists, they engineered an integrated sound reinforcement system, which is much more than just a combination of components. Every single part was selected and tuned to each to work in unity. Whether it be acoustics, mechanics, electronics or software: PARIZ was constructed as a whole system concept, which combines the ease of use via remote control interfaces and perfectly constructed rigging with maximum performance and sonic clarity. It is designed to work flexibly for most sound reinforcement applications, from basic setups for conferences up to world format live shows, even in the most acoustically challenging environments.
The P9 module, a fundamental part of the Pariz system, consists of two 8″ neodymium transducers and a high-precision 1.4″ compression driver dedicated to high frequencies. This features a waveguide with 90°x12° dispersion. Both 8″ transducers are equipped with a special UPM (Ultra Precision Membrane) carbon membrane, which elevates the oscillation of the particles to an inaccessible frequency range, reducing distortion. Completing the feature-set is a total power of 500W (RMS) from each 8″transducer, a frequency response of 700 Hz – 1,100 Hz and an adjustment system that allows the user to change the inclination of each module from 0° to 12° with a 1.5° step. P9 is ideal for amplification in stadiums, theatres, clubs, festivals, corporate events and places of worship.
Also launches was the NOVA M318SUB, a high-performance 18″ subwoofer, which includes everything, that rentals, bands and installers might need. The on-board amplifier module offers a power of 2 x 800 W (RMS) + 1 x 2,500 W (RMS). The high-end 32-bit DSP engine can be controlled by a coloured touchscreen display as well as by NOVA’s PPA remote software. The M318SUB is loaded with one long excursion 18” neodymium transducer, utilising a NCR (Neck Coupling Reinforcement) membrane for a power capability of 1,600 W (RMS). The extended controlled displacement (29 mm Xmax) sets new limits from a mechanical point of view. The M318SUB is tuned extremely deep down to a frequency of 34 Hz for impressively musical low frequency reproduction.
Finally, the P18LEX is a high performance cardioid configuration subwoofer with 18″ neodymium woofer and NCR technology capable of delivering a power of 1600W (RMS) and extremely deep bass down to 27 Hz. The module is also equipped with a two-point suspension system built into the cabinet, which allows for arrays to be built from subwoofer units alone.
