Spain - Amate Audio is launching the X102FD, a high output point source active 2x 10” system, developed to offer a higher performance, higher efficiency alternative to line arrays, in medium and smaller size application environments.
In any application, fewer X102FD systems will always be required than with other cabinets, says the company. Weighing just 32 kg, the cabinets can be deployed and rigged by just one or two people; without the infrastructure, man-hours and effort required to fly a line array.
The X102FD can be deployed both vertically and horizontally, due to its rotatable horn with a simple “no tools required” pull, turn and release mechanism. In vertical FOH applications, the horn provides 80° x 60° (HxV) dispersion (in its default position). In the horizontal plane – for applications such as front-fills within a large-scale line array system, or close to the ceiling hanging in an auditorium – quick rotation of the horn maintains the same dispersion. Likewise, 60° x 80° (HxV) coverage can be obtained in either plane.
With cabinets already rolling off the production lines in Barcelona, the company is confident that the X102FD offers its customers a highly efficient cost saving solution in a multiplicity of applications.
“Partnered with the company’s latest X218WF sub-bass, the X102FD offers sound companies a ready phase-aligned, full-range, plug-and-play sound system that will deliver a lot of power without the need move a lot of weight,” says head of sales, Jordi Amate. “In terms of cost of purchase and operation, the X102FD is far ahead of any line array solution for venues and events of up to around 1000 people.”
