The PS R2 delivers enhanced performance with higher SPL and extended bandwidth, and re-designed cabinetry and grilles – all within the same compact footprint of the popular PS 8, PS10 and PS15 loudspeakers. New mounting plates derived from the NEXO GEO Series accommodate a range of touring and fixed accessories to be used. Innovative sub-bass options now available in the LS600 and the RS15 and new analog controllers and amplification options with the NXAMP will provide further versatility to the PS R2 Series. The R2 upgrades to the PS Series have been made without any changes to the pricing structure of the PS Series. Availability is anticipated during the fourth quarter of 2009. “The NEXO PS R2 range is ideal for near field, portable and installed PA applications in clubs, houses of worship, theatres and A/V installations,” states Albert Cardenas, Acoustic Systems Manager. “It’s a great choice for stage monitoring at all levels of live performance, and the cabinets will also serve as fill-in complements for NEXO GEO and Alpha systems.” Yamaha Commercial Audio Website Marking the 30th anniversary of NEXO, one of the world’s most highly regarded professional loudspeaker systems, this year completes the first full year of the company’s transition in becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yamaha Corporation Japan, a partnership that provides customers with complete sound system solutions by utilizing products from both lines.
