UK - Using the opportunity of the first trade show for many months, Nexo unveied its ePS Series of loudspeakers for professional installation. Three two-way passive cabinets and two partner subbass units are the first models in a new range, which Nexo says delivers its “high-quality European engineering at a cost-effective price that will galvanise budget-sensitive projects”.
Drawing on 25 years of success with the PS Series, the company has slimmed down connection and mounting options whilst taking advantage of new manufacturing techniques and driver design to hit “unprecedented price points” for its industry-standard point source products. ePS models will provide a way for many public and private installation projects to access a Nexo-badged system without breaking the bank, says the company.
Designed specifically for fixed installation, the ePS Series packages high output, superior coverage patterns, directional control and musical performance into compact trapezoidal-shaped wooden enclosures, with steel grilles for IP54 (and IP55) certified weather resistance.
The ePS range features three lightweight point source models, in 6”, 8” and 10” iterations. Each cabinet includes a 1.4” HF driver and lightweight LF driver, with NEXO’s trademark rotatable horn design offering dispersion options to the user.
Presented in Baltic birch plywood, the ePS6, ePS8 and ePS10 offer Peak SPL stats of 125, 128 and 130dB respectively. The ePS6 weighs in at just 7.1kg, with a footprint of 367 mm x 200 mm x 182 mm and has a frequency response of 90Hz - 20kHz. The ePS8 weighs 8.1kg, has a profile of 425mm x 252mm x 227mm and a frequency response of 80Hz - 20kHz. The most powerful of the three models, the ePS 10 weighs 14.8kg, is 533mm x 318mm x 283mm and has a frequency response of 70Hz – 20kHz.
All three cabinets are minimally fitted with a hard-wired strip for connection, offering generic 2x 7mm pitch In/Out screws connectors. The IP cover protects the connectors from moisture in outdoor applications. On each side of the cabinet, two M6 with 80mm pitch and one M10 fitting allow connection to U Bracket, bumper or eye bolts. The back of each speaker is fitted with three M6 with 70mm pitch for wall-mount in both horizontal and vertical positions.
All units are finished in black structural paint (white and all other RAL colours are available to order), with a UV-resistant acoustic fabric stretched over the front grille.
All Nexo loudspeakers are partnered by a dedicated sub-bass option, although they are phase-compatible with any model from the Nexo range. In the case of the ePS Series, two powerful compact subs are being released - the single-12” eLS400 and single-15” eLS600, which match the aesthetic of the full-range cabinets.
