Adamson Expands S-SERIES and Introduces New IS-SERIES Line Arrays

Adamson Systems Engineering added the S10n line array cabinet to its S-SERIES and has introduced the integration-focused IS-SERIES family of loudspeakers this week. The S10n is a narrow-dispersion version of the S10 two-way, full-range line array cabinet. Having identical specs to the S10, the S10n has an 80° x 10° (H x V) dispersion pattern for applications with tighter horizontal coverage requirements.

The IS-SERIES made its debut with the IS7 and complementing IS118 subwoofer. The IS-SERIES uses Adamson’s tour-level technology into sleek, architecturally-friendly boxes with rugged but unobtrusive rigging solutions.

The IS7 is a two-way, full-range line array cabinet containing two ND7-X5, 7” Neodymium drivers and an NH3, 1.4” exit compression driver. It produces a slightly curved wavefront with a nominal dispersion pattern of 100° x 12.5° (H x V). According to Adamson, the waveguide’s efficiency allows for increased vertical dispersion without sacrificing high frequency presence in the far field while the patent-pending Controlled Summation Technology further eliminates the low-mid lobing normally associated with two-way line source systems.

The companion IS118 subwoofer is a lightweight, long excursion 18” ND18-S Kevlar Neodymium driver utilizing Adamson’s Advanced Cone Architecture and a 4” voice coil for power handling. It is mounted in a front-loaded enclosure.

The IS-SERIES cabinet construction uses marine-grade birch plywood and aircraft-grade steel. The IS7 is equipped with NL4 Connectors and screw terminals while the IS118 has screw terminals available on demand. A plate-and-screw rigging solution is recessed in the interior of the rear rigging fins for easy installation. The series is available in a standard black and white, with RAL colours available on demand.

The IS-SERIES is designed for a wide range of applications, including performing arts centers, live performance venues, sports venues, conference centers and houses of worship.

The IS7 and IS118 will begin shipping in late May 2017. The S10n will begin shipping in the summer of 2017. Here are all the specs.
