Electrical connection to the cabinet is via two parallel linked Neutrik NL4 MP connectors. All Inspired Audio products are designed as an integrated solution complete with system amplifier options from the eFlex range. The eFlex units provide DSP preset functions, networked software control of operating parameters and output drive power. An eFlex Q5 will drive six Optima 5 enclosures per channel pair while the eFlex Q20 will drive eight Optima 5 enclosures per channel pair.
The Optima 5 has two options to increase the low frequency response of a system. For flown arrays the Optima 5 is combined with the Optima B210 which provides bass and low midrange support for vocal and acoustic source material. Where playback of the input source requires additional bass energy the reFlex B215 can be ground stacked in support of a flown system. Where the system is pole mounted above a bass enclosure either of the two options can be used. For live sound reFlex B215 would be the natural choice while for AV applications, which are predominantly vocal in nature, the Optima B210 offers a discrete and compact footprint.
