APG will officially launch its new iX series at the ISE 2020. Comprising a full line of install coaxial speakers, the new iX range is characterised by a combination of uncompromising drivers and a non-diffraction baffling allowing pure point source directivity.
Scheduled to be shipping from April 2020, the iX Series is made up of five coaxial speaker models: iX5, iX6, iX8, iX12 and iX15; all of which are two acoustic way speakers loaded in bass-reflex for low-frequency extension. APG will also introduce a future extension of the range with specific pseudo-coaxial speakers optimised for vocal applications.
From an acoustic point of view, the iX range offers stunning musicality down to low mid and even low frequencies and is characterised by an impressive SPL to size ratio and exceptional sound clarity.
For some of the iX models, APG has created coaxial devices that strike a perfect physical alignment between low and hi transducers.
The iX range’s non-diffraction baffling offers a perfect linear acoustic response, substantially reducing feedback without the need for equalisation.
This factor makes the iX range suitable for a variety of purposes, including immersive sound. The speakers are also well-suited to a variety of applications, including main FOH or distributed sound reinforcement in all types of venues like theatres, concert venues, clubs, bars, restaurants, conference rooms let alone congress centers.
It is also possible to combine iX speakers with APG’s popular Uniline and Uniline Compact systems. All iX models have been ergonomically optimised to make them as compact as possible, with smart accessories for discrete installation, customisable colours and a weatherproof finish.
All of the iX speakers are compatible with APG’s SB subwoofers, while the company provides all standard processor settings of APG electronics and customised settings for other brands such as Powersoft.
Gregory Dapsanse, sales & marketing director at APG, enthused: “This line has been tested extensively by APG users; we already received a number of orders for spatialised sound applications, as well as from our Asian distributors in China and Korea. We are looking forward to introducing the iX range to the wider ISE crowd.”
Introducing the APG iX Series
APG’s iX5 is a miniature, 2-way full range and passive loudspeaker fitted with a 5” long excursion LF driver and a coaxial dome tweeter (120° conical dispersion). The iX5 is characterised by its sound quality, which is close to the best studio monitors.
The iX6 is fitted with a 6.5” driver loaded in a bass-reflex while HF is handled by a coaxial dome tweeter (105° conical acoustic opening). It offers clear and precise sound reproduction of mid / high frequencies up to 20 KHz.
The iX8 features a coaxial device fitted with 8″ cone driver and independent HF compression driver. The coaxial mounting offers perfect acoustic dispersion with a homogenous dispersion coverage of 110°.
The iX12 is a 2-way, full-range compact loudspeaker fitted with a coaxial coupling of 12’’ and a 1’’ HF compression driver (filtered). The non-diffraction baffling creates a perfectly coherent acoustic field with a conical dispersion of 100° and a minimal feedback effect of 4dB.
The iX15 is a 2-way full range speaker fitted with 15″ neodymium driver including a forced thermal ventilation system and a 1.4″ neodymium HF compression driver. This results in an exceptional sound pressure capacity down to 60Hz and up to 19KHz.
