World‘s First Arrayable Line Monitor Makes Debut at Plasa

September, 2010

At last, great coverage and high SPL output will be available in the small and scalable NEXO 45 N–12 arrayable line monitor.

BUENA PARK, Calif.—In conjunction with its launch at the Plasa Show, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. announces the debut of the world’s first arrayable line monitor. The NEXO 45 N–12 12–inch arrayable line monitor is 19 3/ 8” wide, 22 5/8” deep, 15 7/16” high, and weighs 62 lbs. The NEXO line monitor is a significant improvement over point source monitors in that there is no interference between adjacent monitors allowing for a very stable, steady frequency response in the coverage area. The versatile, arrayable line monitor is very small but its high SPL output covers almost all stage monitoring requirements.

The NEXO 45 N–12 provides a higher SPL from the cabinet before feedback and sharp side attenuation. For the first time, coverage and SPL are now scalable. The arrayable line monitor has a frequency response of 55Hz–19kHz ±3db with 30–degree horizontal coverage, 22.5–degree diagonal (Coupling Plane) coverage and asymmetrical vertical coverage of 60° constant level from zero to 8 ft. A single unit has a peak SPL of 136db, passive/active internal switching mode. In passive mode 1000 to 1600W is recommended at 8Ω, in active mode the 8Ω LF is 900W to 1400W and the 16Ω HF is 300W–450W.

“The new NEXO 45 N–12 is unique in that it is an all–in–one reference monitor and dedicated floor monitor,”states Albert Cardenas, acoustic systems manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “Its dedicated coverage is significant because it has been designed so that there is no interference by other monitors in the same stage setting.”

The 45 N–12 is made of Baltic Birch ply with black textured coating; two NL4 speaker connectors; four handles on the front, rear and sides; and integrated easy to use magnets for mechanical locking of multiple cabinets.

The NEXO 45 N–12 will be available last quarter 2010.
