Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource
GEO S12’s patented, fourth generation Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource (HRW™), provides precise vertical and horizontal control of acoustic energy, by functionally positioning an acoustical reflector (i.e. mathematically calculated hyperboloid acoustic mirror, derived from rigorous geometrical transformations) that is ‘outside’ the loudspeaker cabinet.
Directivity Phase Device
GEO S12’s unique Directivity Phase Device (DPD) extends coherency far below traditional mid-to-HF coupling limits of ‘common’ arrayed loudspeaker systems. The DPD (see Figs 1 and 2) extends upper line source coupling frequency limits between GEO S12’s adjacent 12″ cones, so that adjacent 12″ loudspeakers coherently couple as if there were twice as many 6″ cones, mounted at half the physical distance. GEO S12’s patented Configurable Directivity Device (CDD), is a diffraction slot used to control acoustic coverage across the “non-coupling (horizontal) plane”. The CDD applies user-adjustable bolt-on flanges to set the diffraction slot’s exit flare rate at either 80° or 120°.
