New Column Array Developments from Axiom Launched at ISE
Axiom Pro Audio has introduced two new loudspeaker products in its AX series of line array products at the ISE show in Amsterdam. One year after launching the AX12C column array at ISE2017 the Italian-made professional loudspeaker brand has shown the AX6C, a new column array consisting of six 3.5” cone drivers housed in a rugged aluminium enclosure that is half the height of the larger AX12C. Designed for mobile and installed applications where high power and clarity are needed, the AX6C’s line array characteristics are enhanced by natural cardioid behaviour which reduces output behind the speaker.
In a further evolution of the original AX12C design, Axiom presented for the first time at ISE the AX12LF low frequency loudspeaker housed in the same sized enclosure as the AX12C, making it the perfect low frequency extension complement in corporate and fixed installation applications. Its 12 x 3.5" cone drivers are transmission line back loaded for natural cardioid behaviour resulting in controlled dispersion throughout its frequency 90Hz to 200Hz range.
Also new for ISE2018 was the CX14A, a very compact powered stage monitor directly derived from the successful CX15A that uses a unique 14” coaxial driver to deliver high (131dB peak output) power density with conical 80° x 80° conical dispersion in a significantly reduced footprint. The space-saving monitor is powered by a Class D amplifier with SMPS, and doubles as a FOH loudspeaker thanks to its side-mounted dual angle pole holder.
