Inspired Audio return to the Frankfurt Pro Light and Sound show confident of building on the solid foundations laid down at last years show. With a product focus in 2013 orientated towards the live sound and touring market, this years show will showcase the first products from the new mFlex MQ & iQ ranges which will seek to broaden the product offer with MQ targeting the live performance market and iQ fixed installation. The show will also see an expansion of the reFlex bass range with additions which are designed to complement the new mFlex product ranges.
First releases from mFlex MQ will be the MQ12 and MQ15. While the former utilises a 12" mid/bass unit and the latter a 15" unit, both products share a common 1.4” exit HF compression driver on a CD horn.
Also common to both MQ enclosures is a multifunction cabinet design with a trapezoid front section augmented by a rear monitor angle. The cabinets also benefit from rear pocket handles and a selection of bracket and insert points.All drivers have neodymium magnet structures with the mid/bass units also featuring 3" aluminium voice coils for enhanced midrange transient response. There is a choice of HF directivity with 90° x 40° as standard and 60° x 40° an option. All HF guides are rotatable to enable operation in portrait or landscape modes. Cabinets are manufactured from birch plywood and finished with a polyurea coating.
The mFlex iQ range will combine installation specific products with adapted versions of products from the MQ range. The iQ range will be finished in a water based textured finish with black and white as standard colours. Later in 2014, Inspired will introduce the ‘Adapt programme’ which will offer full RAL number colour matching.
To extend the bass response of the MQ12 and MQ15, Inspired have introduced the reFlex DR115 bass cabinet and DR118 sub bass cabinet. Both cabinets house high power, long excursion neodymium drivers within vented direct radiating cross-braced enclosures. The two cabinets share a common cabinet width and runners and housings that facilitate stacking.
As standard the enclosures feature reinforced insert points to assist in installation applications but have the option of a touring pack that allows cabinets to be locked together when used for live performance.The third addition to the reFlex family is the B210, a product that shares a common structure to the Optima B210, but without the flyware. The product makes an ideal bass companion to the AX8 within the AV market while also offering options to installers where its compact dimensions and low 315 mm height make it easy to conceal under furniture.
Touring will not be forgotten with the compact Optima 8 array box and the ultra-compact Optima 5 array enclosure joining the Axis monitor range on the stand.
So visit Hall 8, stand F12 at Pro Light and Sound 2014, running from March 12th -15th. The inspired team will be on hand to talk you through the range, our beliefs in an integrated solution and what the future holds for the brand.
