FR-X 15a

Key Features

  • Multi-functional FOH system
  • For audiances of 100-3000 people
  • Plug & Play system
  • Adaptive (rotable) AF horn 80x30°
  • X-comb technology inside
  • Optimised for medium throw applications
  • Active/Dante/Passive versions

R-X 15a is compact, 2-way, self-powered enclosure. It features one 15’’ neodymium speaker in a bass-reflex enclosure and one 1,4’’ ferrite compression driver coupled to a versatile AF horn.

FR-X 15a operates over the nominal frequency range of 50Hz to 20kHz. The AF versatile horn generates a 80°x30° asymmetric directivity pattern and is easy to rotate in a few seconds. The cabinets are made of first grade Baltic birch plywood.

The FR-X rigging system allows assembling a horizontal or vertical array with constant curvature. Coupling between traditional horns causes a lot of comb effect resulting in poor sound projection and coherence in the space due to bad coupling between cabinets.

Electronic overview:FR-X 12a uses a 2 x 1100 Wrms amplifier while FR-X 15a uses a 2 x 1700 Wrms one. Both are digital high efficiency amplifier that integrates 4 useful preset.These presets are based on the fact that mutual coupling between subwoofers influences the displacement of each transducer’s cone in the enclosure. Preset have been designed to optimize the displacement and ensure best working conditions.1. The main voltage must be ALWAYS earthed to protect user in case of current losses or bad insulation (shock hazard).2. ALWAYS replace the fuse with the same type and value (T10A/240V).3. Make sure that the power switch is set to “OFF” before you connect the devices4. A good cable improves the sound quality. Input cables should be as short as possible.5. If long cable are necessary, you should use balanced cables.!Dagnosis and status Leds:Limit: ON when output signal is @-3dBspl of the peak.Temp: ON when working temperature is too high. The internal fan runs at 100% of its speed * Signal:ON when a signal is detected at the input of the cabinet.Ready: ON after a few seconds, the system is ready for use.

Preset explanations:Preset 1: ‘‘Extended’’ has been made for application that need low end when FRX is used without added subwooferPreset 2: ‘‘Fullrange’’ is similar to ‘’extended’’ but without LF correction. This preset if close to be neutral and flat reproduction for voice applications.Preset 3: ‘‘FOH odd’’ is specific AUDIOFOCUS preset for front stage when FRX are side by side coupled (refer to X-Comb section)Preset4: ‘‘FOH even’’ is specific AUDIOFOCUS preset for front stage when FRX are side by side coupled (refer to X-Comb section)V. X-Comb philosophy and setup:Basical explanation about ‘’X-comb’’ technology: Coupling between two sources that are discontinued makes appear a comb effect problem. This mean that if you walk in front of the cabinets that are coupled, you will ‘’feel’’ some ‘’holes’’ and ‘’maximum’’ due to the distance the sources and the ears. Some frequencies arrives in phase and other ones out of phase. The earing system feels these maximum and minimum: this is the comb effect. This is the reason why AUDIOFOCUS developed ‘’Cross-comb’’ or ‘’X-comb’’ technology based on specific horn, psychoacoustic features and DSP treatment.Example of Setup of 2 x 4 coupled FR-X for FOH stage: a) Set all horns to 30° abs asselmble the array using 6 H profilesNormal coupled sourcesFR-X user’s manual8b) If we consider 2 stacks of 4 FR-X, we will have the following configuration:c) Identify the position of each cabinet as illustrated below.
