British loudspeaker manufacturer EM Acoustics is to preview the flagship model of its new Reference Series of loudspeakers at ISE 2020.
The new series features low-profile point source loudspeakers with flat frequency and phase responses. Coupled with EM Acoustics’ DQ Series amplifiers, the Reference Series offers a range of tools for audio professionals seeking high performance in a compact form factor.
Seen for the first time anywhere at ISE 2020 is the first in the series, the R10. Suited to any performance environment requiring ultra-high quality sound reinforcement in a versatile, low-profile package, the R10 is a three-way passive system featuring dual 10”LF drivers and a 4”/2.5” mid-hi coaxial unit.
The R10 is unique in that it is supplied with two different, easily interchangeable dispersion waveguide options – a wide 110° x 50° guide for shorter throw applications and a narrower 80° x 50° option for controlled coverage over longer distances. Both are rotatable for maximum versatility and offer extensive pattern control to below 800Hz. To ensure full compatibility with the rest of the EM Acoustics portfolio, the R10 – along with the rest of the Reference Series loudspeakers – is voiced with natural, flat characteristics.
A sleek, weather-protected polyurethane finish and tour-optimised handling and rigging systems complete the package. The architecture and construction of the R10 combined with EM Acoustics’ FIR processing liberates each component to achieve levels of sonic performance never yet achieved from a box of this size and form.
