On the heels of last year’s Best of Show at InfoComm 2018 for its 10SPOT loudspeaker, Clair Brothers wins again with the the C10 line array. The 15° vertical, dual 10-inch format line array offers Clair TrueFit technology – custom, continuously variable horizontal waveguides designed-to-order for theatre and auditorium-sized venues. The C10 is available with a variety of horizontal waveguide patterns. Standard waveguide is 100°H x 15°V, with horizontal waveguides 70°-to-120° (10° increments) also available.

The C10, like the C12 and C8 (the 12-inch and 8-inch loudspeakers in the C Series), features new transducer technology offering significant weight reduction and reduced amplifier channel requirements.

A TrueFit array is designed collaboratively with the customer, architectural consultants, and venue staff. First, the array type and location are determined. Venue-specific details are input into proprietary design software to design a fluid form waveguide with continuously variable geometry. Resulting in a perfectly unique, venue-specific loudspeaker array that provides naturally even coverage for audience areas and minimizes architectural reflection and anomalies.

TrueFit Technology is available for these Clair Brothers products:

  • C8-TrueFit (double 8-inch line array)
  • C10-TrueFit (double 10-inch line array)
  • C12-TrueFit (double 12-inch line array)
  • kiTCurve12-TrueFit (12-inch curved array, fully custom)
  • kiTCurve12-TrueFit Standard (12-inch curved array, standardized

The C10-M has a versatile and easy to use rigging systems. Each enclosure is equipped with structurally integrated bimodal rigging to allow for quick coverage angle adjustments for multiple venue arrangements. Rear rigging hardware allows for angle adjustments between 0 and 15 degrees at 1 degree increments. The C10 cabinet shares the same width as the C8 (dual 8-inch array) and CS118 (18-inch subwoofer) allowing for simple systematic compatibility and minimal adaptation accessories.

As with all Clair Brothers products, the C10 is constructed of Baltic birch plywood and finished with a rugged exterior epoxy to withstand demanding conditions. The loudspeaker grille is constructed of 14 gauge perforated steel, finished with commercial grade powder coat.
