Fohhn unleashes its latest speaker additions
Fohhn Audio has added to its range of compact line array systems. Taking centre stage is the new PT-6 ‘plug and play’ compact line array and the Linea Focus Modular - the latest addition to Fohhn’s flagship electronically steerable Linea Focus series.
According to the German manufacturer, the PT-6 line array unit has been developed to offer both powerful coverage and easy set-up. The new loudspeaker is a combination of three Fohhn PT-8 modules in a unit that weighs 39kg. Sporting a twin coaxial speaker construction, it contains six 6.5-inch long excursion neodymium and three 1.4-inch compression drivers with a specially developed HF phase EQ. It has a vertical dispersion angle of 30-degrees and a 110-degree horizontal dispersion.
The PT-6 can be stand-mounted, stacked or flown and used in a wide range of venues such as festival tents, clubs, open-air events and concert halls. Up to two PT-6 units can be combined using an integral safety mechanism that requires no additional tools.
Also new is the Linea Focus Modular. These systems will be available as three different active modules: two high-frequency units with eight 1-inch or 16 1-inch compression drivers, waveguide and horn, and a low-mid module with 32 4-inch long excursion speakers. The modules are reportedly suited to large venues with challenging acoustics. Units can be combined and cascaded, their long reach and directionality designed for reproduction of both speech and music in venues that are 100m or more in length. The loudspeaker beam characteristics can be remotely controlled and electronically steered via software.
The LX-10/LX-11 loudspeaker is the latest addition to Fohhn’s Linea-LX series. Although compact in size (13x13x12cm), the passive two-way 4-inch/0.75-inch coaxial loudspeaker has a spec of 50W, 16-ohm impedance, 86dB sensitivity and 100x100-degrees nominal dispersion. Available in two versions, the LX-10 is designed for fixed installation (with eight-pole Phoenix connectors) and the LX-11 for mobile applications (with two Speakon connectors). The manufacturer describes the loudspeakers as ‘ideal for nearfield applications’ such as front fills and stage monitoring, broadcast and TV monitoring, or use under balconies and at small-scale presentations.
Finally, Fohhn has also added to its range of DSP-controlled amplifiers with the new D-4.1200. The amplifier offers 4 x 1,200W power over 4-ohms and an integral 4-in-6 matrix. Like other Fohhn amplifiers, it can be remotely controlled and networked.
