The Nexo PS8 is a loudspeaker that can produce 135dB peak SPL. This speaker features Nexo-designed low magnetic emission Neodymium drivers, making the unit lightweight and compact. The drivers also make it possible for you to use the PS8 next to magnetically sensitive video and computer equipment. Flexible coverage patterns are due in part to Nexo’s constant directivity asymmetrical dispersion horn behind the grille. The horn is easily configurable and can be set in four positions by 90-degree rotations. A single Ps8 speaker has the proper architecture and weight balance to act as both a PA and stage monitor. This Nexo speaker features a 2-way passive 8? design and uses a single amp channel to deliver bi-amped performance, which in turn reduces system cost, size and complexity. The cabinet allows for different mounting options like pole mounting or flying from a truss. The new hardware adapter is compatible with a wide range of touring and fixed installation accessories.
- High-power system (125dB Peak SPL @ 1m) with new 8in LF and 1in HF low magnetic emission Neodymium drivers for light weight and negligible magnetic leakage
- Rotatable, asymmetrical horn and unique cabinet architecture ensure versatility; user-adaptable for both PA and stage monitoring applications
- Two-way passive 8? design uses a single amplifier channel for simpler installation and lower cost
- Sophisticated control electronics ensure reliable, linear operation
- Supported with a full range of mounting and flying accessories
Nexo PS Series speakers work best in applications where compact, high output, linear response loudspeakers are needed. The models in this series can deliver as much as 5dB higher sound pressure levels (SPL) than the competition. The PS Series is made up of three scalable systems that are easily configured for main PA use, floor monitor use, side and rear fill use. Each model can be flown horizontally or vertically in installations as well.
These Nexo speakers are totally integrated solutions that combine transducer, waveguide and enclosure designs. Speakers can be controlled through either their respective, dedicated TD Controllers or through the proper Nexo NXAMP. The PS Series is designed with a long lifespan, which is ensured through high manufacturing standards and advanced driver protection technology.
In order for your audience to experience your audio in an enjoyable way, the speakers you use need to balance horizontal and vertical coverage to provide a premium coverage pattern. While that might sound a little complicated, you have nothing to worry about with the speakers in the Nexo PS Series. The asymmetrical horns are made so that vertical coverage is narrower above the horn axis than it is below the horn axis. And if that doesn’t suit your needs, you can remove the grille and rotate the horn to your liking! Nexo PS R2 speaker systems reduce the amount of ambient energy that happens when loudspeakers misdirect output towards walls and ceilings. It’s also possible to focus more of the output on the performer when in monitor mode.
A PS loudspeaker yields 50-degree horizontal coverage at 25 degrees above the center line when used in a conventional Front of House (FOH) setup. You can expand this to 100 degrees at 50 degrees below the center line by rotating the horn. In stage monitor mode, a loudspeaker yields 100-degree horizontal coverage at 30 degrees above the centerline.
There’s a sticker on the wide dispersion side of the horn that indicates the correct FOH and wedge monitor application orientations. The sticker displays an arrow, which shows the wide side of the horn dispersion. All you need to do is move the arrow so it points in the direction that needs the widest range of coverage!
