InfoComm 2019: Clair Bros adds C-Series horizontal line array

Clair Brothers unveiled its new line array, C10-TrueFit, at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando this week.

The C10-TrueFit represents the latest double 10-inch format midsize line array with unique horizontal waveguides.

The company’s TrueFit systems are designed to reduce energy wasted on walls and effectively extends the stereo image over a greater audience area. System tuning is also faster and easier since the acoustical problem of geometric divergence shading is already solved with the TrueFit 3D acoustical solution.

“Rather than quantising speaker coverage in a stepped sequence of approximate angles, the TrueFit geometric forms are mathematically derived using our proprietary progressive azimuth technology,” saidJosh Sadd, vice president and chief engineer at Clair Brothers. “We use the latest in 3D CAD and produce the custom parts with state-of-the-art 3D CAM software.”

The C10, like the C12 and C8 (the 8-inch speaker in the C-Series), also features a new transducer technology that offers two benefits. One is significant weight reduction, the other a reduction in amplifier channel requirements, enhancing the ability for the line array to be digitally beam-steered in the vertical plane with F.I.R. processing.

Standard C10 factory waveguide is 100° H x 15° V, but a range of horizontal waveguides between 70° and 120° (in 10° increments) are also available.
