Pioneer Pro Audio expands speaker offering

Pioneer Pro Audio has unveiled the XPRS Series of high-powered active speakers.

The compact, portable, wooden-enclosure XPRS Series combines Pioneer Pro Audio sound engineering with the ‘reliable, energy-efficient power’ of Powersoft Class D amps, featuring Power Factor Correction (PFC), to give the user a versatile plug-and-play system that ‘fills the room with a natural sound.’

The XPRS Series comprises the XPRS15 and XPRS12 two-way full range speakers, along with the XPRS215S dual 15in subwoofer. All three feature 15mm birch plywood enclosures for a ‘dynamic sound that works across all musical genres’, as well as auto-ranging power supplies.

The XPRS15/12 have a 15/12in ferrite LF driver, a 1.75in titanium diaphragm compression driver and Pioneer Pro Audio’s ‘AFAST technology’, which helps to provide a ‘clear, clean sound with a deep bass range.’ Users can also enhance their sound using the four EQ modes with built-in DSP.

The wedge-shaped XPRS15/12 can be placed on the floor and used as a foldback monitor for stage performances, or pole-mounted and tilted between zero and seven degrees to suit the application.

The XPRS Series is available from May 2016, at SRPs of €1,299 for the XPRS12, €1,399 for the XPRS15 and €1,699 for the XPRS215S.
