Equipson unveils new sound reinforcement and AoIP products

WORK PRO Audio, the installation and pro audio division of Equipson, unveiled an array of sound reinforcement products at ISE 2019, including two new Outdoor Projector Speakers and a new Multichannel amplifier.

For external applications such as theme parks, aquaparks, shopping malls, stadium and train stations, WORK Pro Audio showed the WSF 500 CX and WSF 10 CX PLUS passive two way, full range projector speakers, designed to offer the ultimate in voice intelligibility and musical clarity.

1000W and 300W respectively, the WFS 500 CX and 10 CX PLUS both incorporate horn-loaded 10 inch diameter transducers and 2.5 inch voice coils in a bass reflex enclosure. The high frequencies are reproduced by a 1 inch exit compression driver, a 1.75 inch voice coil and an 80 degree horizontal x 60 degree vertical horn, in order to deliver consistent coverage across the entire vocal range.

Both speakers are enclosed in black or white weather-resistant fibreglass, incorporating an aluminium grille covered with a protective water repellent fabric and four pole electrical connection cables that enter the enclosure through a cable gland, thus preventing water, dust and moisture from damaging the transducers.

The 500CX is a Low impedance speaker, while the 10 CX PLUS is available with either Low or High impedance and includes a high quality 120Wrms@100V line transformer, making it ideally suited for installations where long cables need to be deployed.

At ISE 2019, WORK PRO Audio also introduced the PA 8150, a Class-D amplifier that offers LED indicators and independent volume control on each of its 8 channels, designed for installations such as restaurants and venues where audio needs to be individually controlled in different spaces. Delivering up to 150W per channel and a total power output of 1040W, the Low impedance PA 8150 has several protections such as short circuit, thermal, ultrasonic and RF and fits neatly into a 1HU 19 inch rack.

With the installation market increasingly embracing AoIP, Equipson has also added to its BlueLine range of installed network audio products by introducing two new Dante Gateways – the DD2 and the DD4.

The two input/two output DD2 and four input/four output DD4 allow for the extraction of analogue audio signals from the Dante network, as well as the introduction of analogue channels within the same network. Both devices are configurable with Dante Controller, use Euroblock 3.5mm connectors and have balanced inputs and outputs to provide greater immunity to noise that interferes with audio signal lines.
