Yamaha Commercial Audio is debuting the new NEXO GEO M6 Series of compact loudspeakers at InfoComm 2014 next week at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth CC10716.
The GEO M6 Series is comprised of the GEO M620 full-range arrayable cabinet and the GEO M6B bass extension. Target markets include theatre, conference facilities and auditoriums, exhibition centers, function rooms, airports, shopping malls, theme parks and houses of worship.
The GEO M620 is a full-range unit for stand-alone, curved array or line array applications. Compact in size and light in weight (less than 22 pounts), the GEO M620 uses a NEXO-designed long-excursion high-efficiency 6.5-inch LF driver and 1x 1-inch throat driver on a BEA/FEA optimized HR Wavesource.
The enclosure is rated to deliver a frequency response of 80 Hz - 19 kHz ±3dB, with nominal peak SPL of 127 dB. HF dispersion is 80 or 120 degrees horizontal, with 20-degree vertical coverage and 0- to 20-degree splay when arrayed. Using NEXO’s HRW patented waveguide for optimum HF coupling between elements, the M620 performs in a variety of configurations, facilitated by a fully-integrated 3-point rigging system.
The GEO M6B is a low and mid-frequency extension box for applications that demand more powerful reinforcement, such as live music. With one 6.5-inch 8-ohm long-excursion driver, it shares the same physical footprint as the M620, allowing the cabinets to be arrayed together in the same column. A flare-shaped port tube increases low-frequency efficiency and linearity at high power, the M6B offers a usable range @-6 dB of 70 Hz – 1 kHz.
Made of a lightweight polyurethane composite, GEO M6 cabinets are available to order in any RAL color designation. Amplification is via NEXO’s NXAMP4x1 TDcontroller. With three cabinets per channel, this means that a 12-cabinet system can be powered by just one amplifier, and controlled over a Dante or Ethersound network.
GEO M620 loudspeakers can be used singly, in pairs, in curved arrays of three, in line arrays up to 12 cabinets long, depending on application and enabled by a range of simple accessories that allow flying, wall-mounting, pole-mounting and ground-stacking, pairing with any of NEXO’s range of subbass cabinets to create a highly portable SR solution.
GEO M6B bass extensions can be deployed inside a M620 line array, allowing the user to increase line array length for improved directivity control and output in the low-mid frequency range.
“The GEO M6 Series will be beneficial for sound company rental inventory and extremely adaptable for various situations,” states Marc Lopez, marketing manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems. “The product design offers maximum potential for sound reinforcement installations for many applications.”
