Valencia, Spain. February 2019: WORK PRO, the installation and pro audio division of Equipson, unveiled an array of sound reinforcement products at ISE 2019, including two new Outdoor Projector Speakers and a new Multichannel amplifier.
For external applications such as theme parks, aquaparks, shopping malls, stadium and train stations, WORK Pro showed the WFS 500 CX and WFS 10 CX PLUS passive two way, full range projector speakers, which offer the ultimate in voice intelligibility and musical clarity.
1000W and 300W respectively, the WFS 500 CX and WFS 10 CX PLUS both incorporate horn-loaded 10 inch diameter transducers and 2.5 inch voice coils in a bass reflex enclosure. The high frequencies are reproduced by a 1 inch exit compression driver, a 1.75 inch voice coil and an 80 degree horizontal x 60 degree vertical horn, which delivers consistent coverage across the entire vocal range.
Designed with elegance and durability in mind, both speakers are visually discreet and are enclosed in black or white weather-resistant fibreglass that can withstand even the most adverse environmental conditions. Both also incorporate an Aluminium grille covered with a protective water repellent fabric and four pole electrical connection cables that enter the enclosure through a cable gland, thus preventing water, dust and moisture from damaging the transducers.
The WFS 500 CX is a Low impedance speaker, while the WFS 10 CX PLUS is available with either Low or High impedance and includes a high quality 120W rms@100V line transformer, making it perfect for installations where long cables need to be deployed.
At ISE 2019, WORK PRO also introduced the PA 8150, a Class-D amplifier that offers LED indicators and independent volume control on each of its 8 channels, making it ideally suited to installations such as restaurants and venues where audio needs to be individually controlled in different spaces. Delivering up to 150W per channel and a total power output of 1040W, the Low impedance PA 8150 has several protections such as short circuit, thermal, ultrasonic and RF and fits neatly into a 1HU 19 inch rack.
With the installation market increasingly embracing AoIP, Equipson has added to its BlueLine range of installed network audio products by introducing two new DANTE TM Gateways - the DD2 and the DD4.
The two input/two output DD2 and four input/four output DD4 allow for the extraction of analogue audio signals from the DANTE TM network, as well as the introduction of analogue channels within the same network. Both devices are configurable with DANTE TM Controller, use Euroblock 3.5mm connectors and have balanced inputs and outputs to provide greater immunity to noise that interferes with audio signal lines.
