The Artist Series comprises speakers and line arrays along with a subwoofer, audio matrix and multichannel digital amplifier
The Artist Series from Audiocenter has been created to provide a complete audio solution to a wide range of both touring and fixed applications. The T3 and T4 are wall-mount speakers. The T3 comes with a 3-inch full-range driver and the T4 with a 4-inch full-range driver and a soft-dome tweeter. Both support 70V/100V transformation and come with an additional transformer box attached to the speaker. The T6 and T8 are passive line arrays that can also be used as two-way, full-range, wall-mount speakers and feature a 6-inch and 8-inch LF driver, respectively, and four soft-dome tweeters.
The Artist Series also includes three column speakers. The T43 comprises four 3-inch full-range speakers, the T83 comes with eight 3-inch speakers and the T65 consists of six 5-inch speakers. Each unit supports 70V/100V transformation, comes with eight soft-dome tweeters and reportedly offers consistent vertical coverage without the narrow vertical beaming and out-of-coverage lobbing that are typical of straight form-factor passive column speakers. All column speakers comprise a 70/100V transformer output option.
Three models of subwoofer are also available. The TW8 and TW28 are wall-mount and flyable subwoofers with a single 8-inch LF driver and dual 8-inch LF drivers, respectively. The TW118 is a single 18-inch LF driver woofer. To supplement the system, four Class-D four- and eight-channel amplifiers with BrainCore technology support 70V/100V transformer output, while the T88D audio matrix processor has eight channels of analogue I/O and further supports four channels of Dante I/O connectivity.
The Artist T45-DSP is a compact, active line array system that consists of four 5-inch LF drivers and two 1-inch compression drivers. It features a two-way crossover design powered by an Audiocenter 1,600W Class-D amplifier module and also incorporates a BrainCore DSP processor with CORT correction technology and LIMITA processing. Finally, the Artist T115S-DSP bass-reflex subwoofer has been designed for LF support for the T45-DSP. It includes a single 15-inch/dual 4-inch voice-coil customised driver with an Audiocenter 1,600W Class-D amplifier.
Audiocenter has also unveiled its K-LA12A, designed specifically for medium-sized venues. It has been optimised for an array of two or up to 16 cabinets, with each cabinet comprising a Beyma single 12-inch (3-inch voice coil) customised LF driver plus two Beyma 1.75-inch composite membrane customised HF drivers. The speaker provides 100° horizontal and 15° vertical coverage depending on the length of the array. The K-LA118A has been designed to go alongside the K-LA12A and is a bass-reflex subwoofer with a single 18-inch/dual 4-inch outside voice coil with a long-excursion cone, driven by an Audiocenter 1,600W Class-D amplifier.
