In its design brief, the GEO M6 extends beyond NEXO’s traditional heartland of live music applications, towards the corporate AV sector and a wide range of fixed installation opportunities where speech reinforcement is the primary requirement. Target markets include theatre, conference facilities and auditoria, exhibition centres, function rooms, airports, shopping malls, attraction parks and all sizes of houses of worship.
The GEO M6 Series is, at launch, comprised of the GEO M620 arrayable cabinet and the GEO M6B bass extension.
The GEO M620 is a full-range unit for stand-alone, curved array or line array application. Extremely compact in size (191 x 373 x 260 mm) and lightweight (less than 10 kgs), the GEO M620 uses a NEXO-designed long-excursion high-efficiency 6.5” LF driver and 1x 1″ throat driver on a BEA/FEA optimized HR Wavesource, to deliver a frequency response of 80 Hz – 19 kHz ±3dB, with nominal peak SPL of 127dB. HF dispersion is 80° or 120° horizontal, with 20° vertical coverage, 0° to 20° splay when arrayed. Using NEXO’s HRW patented waveguide for optimum HF coupling between elements, the M620 performs in a variety of configurations, facilitated by a fully-integrated 3-point rigging system.
The GEO M6B is a low and mid-frequency extension box, for applications which demand more powerful reinforcement, such as live music. With one 6.5″ 8-ohm long-excursion driver, the M6B weighs just 7.6kgs and shares the same physical footprint as the M620, allowing the cabinets to be arrayed together in the same column. Featuring a flare-shaped port tube to increase low frequency efficiency and linearity at high power, the M6B offers a usable range @-6dB of 70Hz – 1kHz.
Made out of a lightweight polyurethane composite, the GEO M6 cabinets are available to order in any RAL colour designation. Highly cost-effective amplification is via NEXO’s NXAMP4x1 TDcontroller; with three cabinets per channel, this means that a 12-cabinet system can be powered by just one amplifier, and controlled over a Dante or Ethersound network.
GEO M620 loudspeakers can be used singly, in pairs, in curved arrays of three, in line arrays up to 12 cabinets long, depending on application and enabled by a range of simple accessories that allow flying, wall-mounting, pole-mounting and ground-stacking, pairing with any of NEXO’s wide range of subbass cabinets to create a highly portable SR solution. GEO M6B bass extensions can be deployed inside a M620 line array, allowing the user to increase line array length for improved directivity control and output in the low-mid frequency range.
NEXO Sales Director Denis Baudier says, “The GEO M6 Series delivers many benefits to a rental house, making inventory super-versatile and adaptable to different assignments. However, the design of this product also offers maximum potential in the permanent installation environment – whether it is a pair of M620s wall-mounted in a dynamic retail space, or 12 line-arrayed cabinets in a house of worship, the Series has the aesthetic and performance characteristics to appeal to many different applications.”
