Clair Brothers 10SPOT Hybrid Loudspeaker Lands NAMM TEC Award Nomination

USA – In recognition of Clair Brother’s latest groundbreaking innovation – the 10SPOT hybrid loudspeaker and winner of the InfoComm 2018 Best of Show Award – the 34th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards at NAMM 2019 have nominated this amazing product for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the “Sound Reinforcement Loudspeaker” category.

The 10SPOT will face heavyweight competition in this loudspeaker category, but it will be quite difficult for the pro audio and music industry professionals casting votes to ignore the utter brilliance of the problem-solving technology and design of this powerful sounding cabinet. Its hybrid nature is what defines the 10SPOT design as a loudspeaker that combines Clair Brothers Curved Array Technology with its One Series coaxial horn technology. The idea behind this combination is to create a unique form factor loudspeaker that requires minimal space yet covers a room’s listening area much more effectively than conventional point source speakers. The 10SPOT’s innovative horn technology is a feature that deserves special attention – a coaxial horn arrangement that provides constant curvature in the vertical plane with progressively increasing divergence in the horizontal plane. The result is a unique directivity pattern of 90° at the top and 135° at the bottom, across a 45° vertical coverage angle. The 10-inch woofer and the compression driver each load into the masterful combination of two overlaid horns. The highlight of this superior technology is its unique ability to eradicate the irritation of horn shadowing. Based on the 10SPOT’s form factor and dispersion characteristics, it is well suited for installation near ceiling to wall intersections in applications, such as hotel/club bar areas, performing arts centres, houses of worship, arenas and auditoriums, nightclubs, and cruise ship venues. The 10SPOT has also proven to be the perfect solution when under balcony and delay fill contribute to a loss of sound clarity and coverage. And when it comes to A/V systems support, it doesn’t get any better than the 10SPOT. Ultimately, this live performance cabinet shines like a new star and deserves your serious voting consideration.
