Next-proaudio Matrix

MATRIX passive column arrays are composed of closely-spaced state of the art, 3” neodymium transducers housed in a stylish and yet sturdy aluminum/wood chassis for excellent Architectural Integration. These speaker arrays has developed in order to offer the highest intelligibility at high SPL and wider frequency response while providing constant beam-width over a user selectable vertical coverage. This accurate beam control extends up to 10 kHz, well beyond the benchmark of 4kHz of traditional single-driver loudspeakers.

Main features include:

  • These column arrays are able to focus the acoustical energy where it is needed, the listening area, leading to significant improvements to speech intelligibility and musical clarity even in critical acoustic environments.
  • For even greater versatility, the vertical dispersion pattern can be switched for Wide or Narrow coverage.
  • The heart of the NEXT MATRIX column arrays is the internal processing board. This proprietary special circuitry takes care of the array optimization and allows the user to easily adjust the system behavior to meet the application requirements.
  • For an architectural integrated installation, a 16mm cavity in the back of the speaker provides ample space for hidden speaker wiring, even when the speaker is mounted flat against a wall.
  • Removable Input screw connector offers reliable, easier, and more efficient wiring.
  • For high-impedance (100V) operation, an optional multi tap transformer is available.
