IS-Series expansion and Milan Update at InfoComm 2019 for Adamson

Adamson is set to expand its install-focused IS-Series with the launch of the IS219 subwoofer at InfoComm 2019.
Despite its relative small height, conceived to facilitate its integration, it comprises two 19″ transducers in a Bass Reflex load.

Installation-tailored new subwoofer

“The response from architects and AV systems designers and integrators regarding our IS-Series has been incredibly encouraging,” commented Brian Fraser, Product Manager with Adamson. “There’s obviously a demand for premium, tour-proven sound quality in unobtrusive, architecturally-friendly enclosures, and there’s no better event to expand the series and enhance its versatility for various applications than InfoComm 2019.”

The IS219 subwoofer is the latest addition to Adamson’s installation-tailored IS-Series, which packs the company’s sophisticated, tour-proven technology into sleek, architecturally-friendly cabinets with rugged and unobtrusive rigging solutions. The product was developed with input from several prominent integrators.

The enclosure is loaded with two lightweight, long-excursion 19” SD19 Kevlar Neodymium drivers utilizing Adamson’s Advanced Cone Architecture and a dual 5” voice coil for exceptional power handling.
It is mounted in an ultra-efficient, front-loaded enclosure, designed to reproduce clean, musical low-frequency information.

19″ transducers ARE big, it would have been very difficult to reduce the enclosure even more..

The two transducers are cabled in parallel and have a global impedance of 4 ohms, with AES power handling of 3,200 W. With a 12 dB peak factor, the Maximum SPL reaches 143 dB. The frequency response is extended from 29 to 100 Hz at ± 3dB.

The cabinet construction uses marine-grade birch plywood as well as aircraft-grade steel and aluminum and is equipped with two front and back Speakon NL4 connectors, or barrier strips available upon request.

The IS219 ships with removable handles for easy transport while allowing it to fit into tight spaces when the handles are removed, and its 20-in. height ensure it can easily fit under a standard 24-in. stage.

Milan Momentum Update

As well as unveiling this new model of subwoofer, Adamson hosted at Infocomm a Milan Momentum Update, presenting technical updates for the protocol from the past year in a collaborative format. Milan combines the technical benefits of the AVB standard with pro AV market-defined device requirements to enhance ease-of-use and interoperability in network deployments for a myriad of applications.

“We’ve been working with other industry leaders as part of the Avnu Alliance on the development of the Milan protocol as we believe it will be of significant benefit to our partners, end users, and the international pro audio community as a whole,” shared Adamson CEO Marc Bertrand.

The event also featured Adamson Network Engineer Morten Lave on a panel alongside Henning Kaltheuner (d&b audiotechnik), Genio Kronauer (L-Acoustics), and Tim Boot (Meyer Sound).
