Pioneer adds to XPRS
Combining Class-D amplification with Power Factor Correction and compact, portable, wooden enclosures, the latest models to be added to Pioneer Pro Audio’s XPRS Series include a 12- and 15-inch two-way full-range speakers together with what the manufacturer calls a dual 15-inch Quasi-bandpass subwoofer.
The two full-range models each featuring ferrite LF drivers matched with a 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver and an AFAST acoustic tube that reportedly strengthens the low-mid frequencies. Four integrated presets are voiced to different applications, from vocal intelligibility to full frequency range. Both the XPRS-12 and XPRS-15 can be pole-mounted with a 0- and 7-degree tilt or wedged on the floor for use as feedback monitors thanks to a 60/90 degree rotatable horn. The XPRS215S subwoofer, meanwhile, provides a 2,400W output thanks to its Powersoft Class-D, delivered from a pair of 15-inch ferrite magnets. A crossover is selectable at 80, 100, 120 or 150Hz.
