Adamson Systems will debut the new E219 subwoofer at InfoComm, booth #C11101 in Las Vegas this year. The new addition to the Energia family – which consists of the E15, E12 and E218—will bolster low-end and complete the Energia line.
The E219 is loaded with two lightweight, long excursion 19” SD19 Kevlar Neodymium drivers utilizing Adamson’s Advanced Cone Architecture. The drivers employ dual 5” voice coils for exceptional power handling, and are mounted in an ultra-efficient front-loaded enclosure, designed to reproduce clean, musical low frequency information.
“The E219 also utilizes a tangential flow venting system that reduces harmonic distortion by minimizing air turbulence,” explains James Oliver, marketing & sales manager for Adamson. “Its output and efficiency even rivals its predecessor, Adamson’s renowned T21 Sub.”
The lightweight E219 – weighing in at 249 pounds – lends itself to rigging situations that benefit from flying subwoofers. The sub is designed to be used as a standalone low frequency component in the Energia system, but can also be combined with the E218 cabinet for larger events.
The E219 subwoofer is specified for use and packaged with the Lab.gruppen PLM 20000Q amplifier. Four E219 cabinets can be run from a single amp. The end result is clean LF reproduction at high SPL levels with low power compression.
Integrated rigging permits a 0° or a 3° angle which allows for compatibility with the full-range line array modules in the Energia system. The E219 can be transported using a 3-up dolly, or a single dolly system.
When truck-loaded, multiple sets of E219s fit comfortably in European trailers of 93” width as well as American trucks of 96” or 102”.
The cabinet – measuring 23.5 in x 56 in x 35 in – is constructed of marine grade birch plywood as well as aircraft grade steel and aluminum. It is equipped with three Speakon NL8 connectors, two parallel in/out plugs and one dedicated output connection point for efficient use of speaker cabling.
Public production of the E219 will commence in July, 2014.
