BUENA PARK, Calif.âŽ¯Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. will launch the big brother to the NEXO RS15, the new NEXO RS18 sub at InfoComm 2010, booth #C6748. The NEXO RS18 is the second product in the company's patented Ray Sub Series, which was first revealed 15 months ago and has, in a short time, set new standards in versatility for subwoofers.
The new compact dual 18" Ray SUB is designed to perform in both Directional and Omni-directional modes and has the ability to be flown or stacked in configurations tailored to the application's coverage needs. It is a practical solution in installations and truck packs where space is at a premium.
“The rear rejection is more than 12 dB, producing a more quiet stage, better mix, and overall a better sound,” states Albert Cardenas, acoustic systems manager.
The RS-18 can be used with a wide variety of NEXO systems, from GEO T to the PS15 R2. “Our preliminary reports indicate the new sub will be a solid performer with exceptional output capability, flexibility and great sound, says Cardenas.” The sub achieves a Frequency Response @ -3db of 31Hz-100Hz for both Omni and Directional modes and Peak SPL @ 1m of Omni: 143–146dB Peak (2x1250 to 2 x 3000W/8Î©), and Directional: 140–143dBPeak (2x1250W to 2 x 3000W/8Î©). A pole mount is included at one end that allows the RS18 to stand on end for use with a NEXO GEO S12 or PS15 R2.
The NEXO RS18 will be available in early June 2010.
