Pioneer’s XPRS Series of Active, Wooden Enclosure Speakers Feature Powersoft Class D Amps
Pioneer Pro Audio’s new XPRS Series of high-powered active speakers that integrate Powersoft amplifiers. The XPRS Series comprises the XPRS15 and XPRS12 — both two-way full-range speakers, and the XPRS215S dual 15-inch subwoofer. All three enclosures feature 15mm birch plywood construction for a dynamic sound. The XPRS15/12 has a 15/12-inch ferrite LF driver, a 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver and Pioneer Pro Audio’s “AFAST technology” for a deeper bass range. Or you can enhance your sound using the four EQ modes with built-in DSP.
The XPRS215S is the perfect complement to enhance the low-end, thanks to its dual 15-inch ferrite drivers and a versatile crossover switch that lets you adjust the low pass filter cut-off at stages between 80Hz and 150HZ.
The Powersoft Class D amps deliver a 2400W output, while Power Factor Correction (PFC) ensures energy efficiency and a reliable performance. With all that power, we’ve paid extra attention to protecting the amp and the speaker – pouring in thermal limiting, an input limiter, DC offset removal, AC mains protection and more. Plus the auto-ranging power supply detects and adapts to the voltage without compromising the sound quality, making the XPRS Series a reliable performer in any environment.
The road-ready XPRS Series are durable and easy to transport. Pioneer Pro Audio’s engineers have successfully placed the PA speakers’ handles to ensure the weight is distributed equally, while the sub comes with removable casters. The wedge-shaped XPRS15/12 can be placed on the floor and used as a foldback monitor for stage performances, or you can pole-mount them and choose between a 0-degree and 7-degree tilt to suit your set-up.
The XPRS Series will be available in May 2016 and will list for $1,199.00 for the XPRS12, $1,299.00 for the XPRS15, and $1,599.00 for the XPRS215S. Here are the details.
