Amate Audio S.L. Terrassa, Barcelona, Spain; 25 September 2018. During a two day summit, at the end of May, held in and around Amate Audio’s HQ facilities in Terrassa, outside of Barcelona, members of the company’s worldwide distributor network were introduced to a range of new products and technological developments.
High in the mountains of the Catalonian countryside, at the Masia Restaurant Torre del Conill, splendid isolation, an extensive terrace and brilliant sunshine provided an idyllic location to audition a line up of the very latest and yet to be released Amate Audio speaker systems. Here the company unveiled an all new flagship line array system, the newest addition to its top of the range Xcellence series.
The X212AF is a 2x 12” full range, high performance, 3-way active line array, featuring an advanced engineered V-shape cabinet that delivers 100° horizontal coverage and 8° vertical coverage. Complementing the dual 12” LF drivers, are four 6” mid range drivers and two 3” HF neodymium drivers mounted on a proprietary waveguide. Latest 3rd generation Class-D integrated amplification delivers 4000 W of power and the system launches Amate Audio’s next generation DSP platform, providing state-of-the-art control capabilities.
CEO and founder Juan Amate stated, “The Xcellence X212AF puts Amate Audio’s at the forefront of the market for large-scale, high performance line array systems. It represents an exceptional new product offering, an outstanding design achievement, and a flagship system of which we are immensely proud.”
