EAW streamlines setup
Intended to streamline setup by delivering maximum results in minimal time, EAW has unveiled the NTX series line array, a dual 10-inch articulated array which offers a built-in 1,600W two-channel amplifier and PFC power supply. The NTX210L cabinet operates in the 55Hz – 18kHz range with a max SPL of 140dB and a 90° horizontal and 12° vertical nominal beamwidth. The manufacturer has also announced the SBX series of companion subwoofers to be paired with the NTX line array.
The NTX210L houses patented OptiLogic technology capable of automatic array self-detection via onboard infrared sensors and accelerometers, resulting in “near instant” optimisation, including air loss compensation. The NTX series also features integrated Dante networking (with loop-thru), including analogue redundancy capability, allowing the analogue input to be set to automatically enable if the Dante signal is lost. The user-friendly solution is said to be ideal for performing arts centres, theatres, corporate events, houses of worship, or even medium and large outdoor festivals.
The SBX series, meanwhile, comprises high-output 18-inch models in two configurations: the SBX118 which is capable of outputting up to 2,500W and the SBX218 which doubles this to 5,000W. Both operate in the 25–120Hz frequency range with respective max SPLs of 135dB and 141dB, and both feature 18-inch neodymium woofers with 4-inch voice coils.
As well as serving as suitable complements to the NTX210L array, the SBX models can also be used to support other EAW systems, such as Anna ADAPTive and RSX Series lines.
Designed for both production and installation, the SBX Series is equipped with a threaded pole mount and rugged handles. Integrated runners on the top and sides lock the subs together to resist movement. Ground stacking of the NTX210L loudspeakers can be accomplished with two sets of flybar locating pins, providing safe operation at any splay angle. Both the NXT array and SBX subs work with EAW’s Resolution 2 software, which is capable of complete system optimisation from anywhere in the venue, as well as room design and prediction.
