The ST 12-SMA II and ST 15-SMA II have been designed for high-powered music applications, DJ sets and vocal reinforcement
The 12-inch ST 12-SMA II and 15-inch ST 15-SMA II are 1,200W active ultra-compact speakers for rental companies and musicians. Designed as a professional sound reinforcement solution with up to 130dB (ST 12-SMA II) and 131dB (ST 15-SMA II) SPL and low distortion, the speakers have been designed for high-powered music applications, DJ sets and vocal reinforcement, with or without subwoofers. They provide 90° x 60° coverage and incorporate FiRPHASE for a 0° phase response. The frequency response is 45Hz to 20kHz. The woofers are said to deliver a deep and accurate reproduction of the lower frequency range, while the 1.4-inch horn-loaded compression driver offers a ‘very open and natural’ midrange sound. The solid machined aluminium structure stabilises the amp during transportation and assists in heat dissipation. The cabinet is built from high-strength birch plywood coated with black textured polyurethane. A power-coated metal grille protects the front, and an acoustically transparent sound foam backing on the inside of the grille reportedly ensures protection from dust and humidity.
The Italian manufacturer has also released new firmware ver.230 for the M18 digital mixer. Pre/post setting of AUX5/6 fader sends are now recalled with SHOWs and metronome configurations are now saved into Snapshots. The two-hour rec limitation has been removed and now multiple files are generated after each two-hour limit to reportedly ensure gapless recording. The complete registration can be reconstructed on a DAW.
