Bristol-based production technology house Enlightened has made a significant investment in its audio rental inventory, adding NEXO’s award-winning new P+ Series compact point source loudspeakers, together with L15 subbass cabinets, and new NXAMP4x2Mk2 amplifiers.
Enlightened is a one-stop shop for all lighting, audio, video and staging solutions , for hire, sale, production, repair or permanent installation. Audio Specialist Matt Shelbourn explains: “Enlightened has had NEXO’s popular PS series in rental stock for over 10 years. Over that time, they have proven to be great-sounding, reliable boxes that are popular with our clients. For these reasons, we chose to invest again in the NEXO brand.
“NEXO has a reputation for making speakers that pack high SPL into small-format boxes and that is fundamentally one of the big attractions in the new P12. The dual-concentric design means the boxes are small in size for the big sound they deliver, as well as offering improved clarity to the sound. We were blown away by the L15 subs; with 15” drivers, they gave our 18” subs a run for their money!”
The company has also opted for NEXO’s über-compact ID24 models. “Smaller than the P Series but just as versatile, the ID24 speakers have a compact design that belies their powerful output. Paired with NEXO’s NXAMP4X1MK2, they pack an impressive 126dB peak SPL. They can be simply used in pairs or in multiples with up to 16 units able to be powered by a single NXAMP4X1MK2 amplifier.”
Also from the ID series, Enlightened has purchased the ID S110 subs to supplement the ID24. With a 10” driver, they add low-end extension down to 43Hz. Together, they are an ideal customisable solution across the widest variety of theatrical, live music and event productions.
“NEXO’s ID series packs a punch in a tiny size! With its dual 4” drivers and rotatable horns, the ID24 will allow us to deliver flexible audio solutions for more demanding applications where the small-form factor is essential. Again, NEXO hasn’t compromised the audio quality when making such small boxes; the sound is impressive, particularly when paired with the S110 subs”.
This year’s Bath Life Awards event allowed Enlightened to really demonstrate the capabilities and quality of the new inventory, which gave an outstanding performance in the Georgian Assembly Rooms, previously a challenging venue in terms of audio coverage for the audience.
