Equipson Launches a Stylish Loudspeaker Series for Challenging Acoustic Environments
The Netherlands – Spanish manufacturer Equipson used the ISE show to launch a new range of loudspeakers for key installations in acoustically challenging environments.
On show for the first time, the WORK PRO UDA Series is a high output, full range, frequency shaded passive series of column speakers that provides exceptional voice intelligibility and musical clarity.
The inclusion of Directivity Control, a proprietary IST (Interdependent Shading Topology) network, ensures that all of the loudspeakers in the Series maintain a constant ratio between wavelength and column size so that they offer controlled vertical coverage across the entire vocal range. This makes UDA products ideally suited to applications such as shopping malls, houses of worship, restaurants, congress halls, hotels, airports, train stations, swimming pools, conference rooms or museums, where reflective surfaces create a reverberant sound field.
There are five different loudspeakers in the Series: UDA 1, UDA 2, UDA 4 UDA 8 and UDA 16, all offering 140º horizontal coverage. All of the models in the range can operate at low or high impedance, with low impedance delivering a program power range from 25W for the UDA1 up to 400W for the UDA 16. By having a variety of products to choose from, customers can select the correct product for their application based on criteria such as the number of transducers, power output, sensitivity and peak SPL.
Each UDA Series product consists of a narrow extruded aluminium enclosure that has been designed for seamless visual integration into every venue. The loudspeakers are all available in a stylish black or white finish and feature an aluminium grille that is internally covered with a protective water repellent fabric to prevent splashed water and dust from damaging the transducers. This ensures that all of the loudspeakers in the Series have an IP65 protection rating.
All UDA products come with a range of accessories so they can be mounted vertically or horizontally. The units can be connected through either a barrier terminal strip or a Speakon connector (model depending), with connections protected from short circuits by a weather resistant cover.
Equipson has also added a UDA TL accessory to the range, which allows for high impedance connection of the UDA units. This houses a 120W rms at 100V line transformer (60W rms at 70V), making it ideally suited to installations where long cables need to be deployed.
UDA 8 and 16 units are already available, with UDA 1, 2 and 4 shipping from May 2020.
