[Musikmesse] Nexo STM Series
Several new Nexo products are debuting this week at this year’s ProLight+Sound / Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany.
The STM Series (Scale Through Modularity) loudspeaker cabinets are designed for touring, festivals, and sound company rental, the new system combines Nexo Alpha functionality with Nexo Geo waveguide designs. Scale Through Modularity (STM) enables line array systems to scale up or down depending on event audience size, from 1,000 to 100,000 people.
The Nexo STM system can be configured from four loudspeaker elements: M46 main, B112 bass, S118 sub-bass, and M28 "Omni" modules.
The Nexo STM Series main, bass and Omni cabinets are injection-molded. Plus, the bass cabinet has a stated frequency response of 63 to 200 Hz, overlapping that of the sub and main modules to increase in LF headroom. The sub can achieve a similar SPL output to the Nexo CD18 unit using one 18-inch driver. Two subs can be used back-to-back in cardioid mode, or side-by-side in omnidirectional mode.
The M46 main cabinet’s flat-membrane drivers promise coverage over the 90-degree horizontal dispersion. HF frequency range remains linear using Kepton Polymer diaphragms. The M46 features 4x6.5 inch LF/MF drivers, 4x HF compression drivers, has a 145dB peak SPL, and a frequency response of 85 to 20k Hz. The main cabinet is 13.8x22.6x28.2 inches (HxWxD), weighing 121 pounds.
The B112 bass cabinet features a Neodymium h3,000-watt 12-inch bass driver with 4-inch voice coil and shares the same dimensions, weight, and gravity center as the M46. The hybrid horn-loaded design is designed to maximize the efficiency of the driver, and is said to deliver 6dB more than a standard front-loaded driver in this frequency range. The bass has a 1x3,000W +/- 3cm excursion 12-inch LF driver, a 141dB peak SPL and a frequency response of 63 to 200 Hz. The B112 is 13.8x 22.6x28.2 inches (HxWxD) and weighs 121 pounds.
The S118 sub-bass cabinet features a Neodymium high excursion 3,000W 18-inch driver. A bandpass load ensures SPL output equivalent to conventional dual 18-inch sub-basses, the company says. The unit uses a 1x 18-inch LF Driver, has a 143dB peak SPL and a frequency response of 25 to 85 Hz. The sub-bass cabinet is 27.6x22.6x28.2inches (HxWxD) and weighs 187 pounds. The S118 can be flown in the array or ground-stacked in line and can run in omnidirectional or cardioid sub mode.
The M28 Omni cabinet is used for downfill and provides 120 degrees of horizontal dispersion and 0- to 15-degree splaying angle between modules. The cabinet features 2x 8-inch LF drivers, 4x 4-inch MF drivers, 1x HF compression driver, with a 140dB peak SPL and frequency response of 60 to 20k Hz. The Omni cabinet is 9.2x22.6x28.2 inches (HxWxD) and weighs 84 pounds. It can also be used independently from the M46 or B112.
