The French manufacturer APG will preview its new iX range at the JTSE trade show. Comprising a full line of fixed coaxial install speakers, the iX are a combination of uncompromising drivers and a non-diffraction acoustic baffling allowing pure point source directivity.
The iX line 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 has also announced at the show a future extension of the range with two unique models of pseudo-coaxial speakers – the iX2.5 and IX2.6 – which will be 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.
The iX range’s non-diffraction baffling creates 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 (front fill, out fill, in fill, under balcony, delay lines) in all types of venues (theatres, concert venues, clubs, bars, restaurants, conference rooms, congress centers).
It is also possible to combine iX speakers with the popular Uniline and Uniline Compact systems from the French manufacturer. 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; some of whom have already expressed an interest in purchasing them for their on-going installation projects.”
The iX Range :
iX5: 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.
iX6: 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.
iX8: 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°.
iX12: 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.
iX15: 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.
