Network System

Crown International

The IQ Network, previously known as the IQ System, has been redesigned. The IQ System was originally introduced in 1988 as a means of enabling professional audio equipment, particularly amplifiers, to be controlled and monitored through a remote computer. This second generation is based on the Ethernet structure. Communication travels through 100 Mb Ethernet between components utilizing the company's TCP/IQ protocol, which affords a significant increase in communication speed (100 Mbps rate versus 38.4 kbps) and the ability to add more components to a network.

Line Array System

Martin Audio

The Wavefront W8L's design combines horn-loading techniques with line array technology to produce maximum dynamic impact. The W8L is a three-way, full-range system, which may be used without subwoofers for many applications. The Wavefront W8L system combines patentable driver-loading techniques with vertically coupled waveguides and true constant directivity horns. The W8L horns develop low curvature wave fronts for smooth, comb filter free horizontal coupling.

The RE510 is a supercardioid handheld condenser microphone with the flexibility to adapt to different applications. Features include a low-frequency boost switch, which makes it possible to configure the mic as a classic-sounding live vocal microphone or as a high-performance studio microphone. In the rolloff configuration, the low end of the RE510 is tailored to compensate for proximity effect while the upper-mid frequencies offer a clear and natural response.

Architectural Acoustics

The 4-channel MCA 4200 is designed for permanent installation and features four independent 200W amp channels in a compact, fan-cooled two-rackspace package. The MCA 4200 can supply maximum output power to low-impedance (4ž and 8ž) and high-impedance (70V) loads simultaneously in 2-channel configurations. Rear-panel switches allow you to place channels A and B or channels C and D into low- or high-impedance operation. To facilitate installations in which larger power output requirements exist, the MCA 4200 can be configured for bridged operation.

Personal Monitor Systems


The PSM 200 personal monitor systems deliver the ability to upgrade the receiver from wired to wireless, a transmitter that is also a mixer, and a high-fidelity earphone. For users who can't initially afford wireless, the P2R hybrid receiver protects their investment by allowing them to upgrade at a later date. The hybrid receiver starts as a wired body pack and, with the addition of the TransMixer component, operates fully as a wireless receiver. By combining frequency-agile wireless transmitter functionality and a 2-channel mixer, the PSM 200 TransMixer offers the end-user complete control of the in-ear mix onstage. The E2 is the professional in-ear monitor earphone for the stage and your CD player.

Audio Analyzer

Phonic Corp.

The PAA2 handheld tool for sound engineers has a 31-band real-time spectrum analysis, a sound-pressure level (SPL) and dBu/dBV/VAC level meter, one internal generator, an EQ setting program, an SPL meter calibration, and phase-checking abilities. Each of the 31 bands can be individually checked for SPL, and the peak hold option will allow users to keep their readings in recallable memory locations. The PAA2 comes with a large high-resolution graphic LCD that provides for a high-definition spectrum analysis from pull-down menus. An XLR connector enables measurement of line levels, displayed in a choice of dBu, dBV, or volts.

The Pro-XL Series — the Autocom Pro-XL1600, the Composer Pro-XL2600, and the Multicom Pro-XL4600 — features several circuit designs that place it at home in the studio and under live conditions. All three processors have an interactive dynamic enhancer, which makes up for the compression-induced loss of treble energy, as well as the interactive knee adaptation, which combines the hard-knee and soft-knee characteristics. Additionally, all three models share the interactive ratio control expander, which automatically adjusts the ratio setting for virtual inaudible noise suppression, and the interactive gain control, a feature with dual-stage peak-limiting circuitry that combines a clipper and a program limiter. The Autocom Pro-XL and the Composer Pro-XL have a switchable voice adaptive de-esser, and the Multicom Pro-XL has been upgraded with an enhancer and an expander/noise gate.
