Fohhn Audio is now shipping its new LX-220 high performance hybrid line source system, the latest addition to its popular Linea Series.
Just over 7 feet, the 4-way loudspeaker has been specially developed to provide the best possible sound quality for speech and live music applications in challenging acoustic environments where visual integration is also a requirement.
The LX-220 is equipped with 18 4-inch high performance, long excursion, neodymium speakers arranged in a column, plus three 1-inch compression drivers with horn loaded Fohhn Waveguide system and self-resetting Intelligent Protection Circuit (IPC).
This arrangement produces a very direct, cylindrical beam characteristic, with sound pressure levels remaining more constant over distance, hence its suitability for use in larger rooms (25-40 metres in length).
Unwanted reflections from the floor or ceiling can also be avoided, leading to greatly improved speech intelligibility in reverberant rooms. High resistance to feedback also makes the LX-220 ideal for use with complex microphone set-ups.
As with other Fohhn Linea Series systems, the LX-220’s slim, elegant design enables it to be used in a range of architectural settings including worship venues, conference centres and universities.
The loudspeaker’s high-quality aluminium housing also makes it suitable for outdoor use.
“Customers who have successfully used our compact LX-100 and LX-150 systems in various projects told us that they wished we had a similar system capable of covering larger rooms” said Uli Haug, Fohhn Audio’s Executive Director of Sales and Marketing. “After a period of intensive development and feedback from engineers and installers, we’re delighted to be delivering the result.”
The LX-220 and other new developments can be seen on the Fohhn Audio stand (8.0 K90) at Prolight + Sound, Frankfurt.
