OHM announces multi-function HD-MX floor monitors
The HD-MX series of floor monitors is the latest offering from UK-based manufacturer OHM.
The range comprises the HD-MX12 and the HD-MX15. Multi-function use can be achieved with the introduction of a stand mount connector and a cradle, making the HD-MX monitors suitable for a variety of applications.
The low profile monitors boast a shallow angle design intended to offer improved sightlines for audiences while also enabling a performer to be able to stand close to the monitor. The co-axial speakers give a distributed sound across the whole frequency range.
The monitors contain a Neodynium coaxial driver with 80-degree x 60-degree dispersion, and the signal input is via four pole Speakon connectors linked through to allow multiple daisy chaining and Bi-amp connection.
The cable connector concealment in this monitor has been recessed into two pockets, enabling the cables to be connected and easily accessed. The connector back-plate includes a switch that changes the monitor from passive to bi-amp mode.
The bi-amped version of the HD-MX monitors’ low frequency section and horn is powered with its own amp channels. Each amp channel is filtered for the frequencies its driver reproduces with an active or line-level crossover. A user can switch the monitor from passive to active with a switch of a button.
The series has been designed with two handles to allow easy handling whilst on the move. Also featured are ‘kick-proof’ concave steel grilles to offer extra rigidity without ‘popping’ when used as foot rest.
