At Prolight+Sound/Messe in Frankfurt, Amadeus has announced the release of the new PMX 4 miniature 4-inch loudspeaker (Hall 8, Stand G19).
The new 4-inch coaxial loudspeaker, the most compact in its line, completes the PMX Series, which includes the 15-, 12-, 10-, 8- and 5-inch models, each available in passive, self-powered and EtherSound-enabled versions.
Initially available in a highly resistant black (water-soluble) paint finish, the PMX 4 is also available in several different standard colors. Every PMX 4 can also be ordered in a “made-to-measure” finish, based on registered or non-registered colors and/or materials.
Further, it can be manufactured in standard premium-grade Baltic Birch or in special woods such as Wenge, Wacapou, Wamara, Ebony from Africa, and more traditional timbers such as White Sycamore and Oak.
Gaetan Byk, marketing manager at Amadeus, explains, “We recently received several convergent requests from composers, designers and scenographers with whom we have been working with for long time, looking for a highly accurate, transparent, neutral, and above all a miniature sized sound reinforcement solution. We feel the new PMX 4 fills all these requirements perfectly.”
The new 4-inch model meets the neutral-sounding standard established by the Amadeus PMX 5. “We had to create a product matching the Amadeus sonic philosophy, starting from the PMX 5 format and trying to reduce its size by 50 percent without making any sonic compromise,” adds Michel Deluc, lead designer at Amadeus. “This loudspeaker comprises a 4-inch (100 mm) neodymium woofer, with a 0,8-inch (20 mm) tweeter mounted in coaxial mode. It draws 300 watts peak from the line, under a 8-ohm impedance and produces 112 dB peak SPL.”
The sides and the upper, lower and rear panels of the PMX 4 are all equipped with M5-threaded inserts, compatible with U-Brackets developed by Amadeus, and wall mounts, developed by Konig & Meyer, allowing the loudspeakers to easily attach to a wall or a ceiling.
