Optimised performance through smart design
Like other GEO M Series line arrays, the M12 delivers remarkably high output from a compact cabinet and achieves the principal benefit of single over dual driver designs – extended LF response – using patented technologies to remove what may previously have been seen as drawbacks. A Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource (HRW™) ensures optimal wavesource coupling without destructive interference while a Phase Directivity Device (PDD) extends the upper frequency limit for line source coupling between adjacent speakers.
And drawing on technologies first seen in NEXO’s STM system, M12 enclosures use a urethane co-polymer material and honeycomb structure to achieve exceptional rigidity and light weight.
Patented Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource
GEO M12 makes full use of NEXO’s patented Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource (HRW™) to control acoustic energy by creating a virtual wavesource ‘outside the box’, resulting in optimal wavesource coupling without destructive interference.
Patented Phase Directivity Device™ (PDD)
A Phase Directivity Device (PDD) on the cone driver extends the upper frequency limit for line source coupling between adjacent speakers. 12″ drivers coherently couple as if there were twice as many 6″ cones mounted at half the physical distance.
Patented Port Tube Profiling
The M12 module uses a massive, new and improved version of NEXO’s patented V-shaped profile of the bass port to ensure smooth air flow, reducing turbulence to increase low frequency efficiency and linearity at high power.
Magnetic Waveguide Flanges
System flexibility can be increased by adding magnetic flanges to the HF waveguide exit, changing the standard 80˚ acoustic coverage across the horizontal plane to 120˚. No tools are required to remove or replace the grille and flanges.
