EAW Announces the New QX300 Series
Whitinsville, MA, USA, June 3, 2013 –Eastern Acoustic Works® (EAW®) has announced that the new QX300 range of full range loudspeaker systems is available for order. EAW President Jeff Rocha made the announcement.
“EAW customers have quickly fallen in love with the unique combination of high output, tremendous pattern control and focused fidelity found in the surprisingly compact QX500 range,” Rocha said. “But they have challenged us to design the same core feature set into an even smaller package. The EAW team has once again delivered and is now thrilled to be launching the QX300 range, a two-way marvel at a price-point that’s extremely attractive.”
The QX300 range surrounds a high-output, low-resonance, 4-in coil / 1.4-in exit high frequency compression driver with four 10-in low frequency cone transducers in vertical and horizontal pairs. EAW engineers have drawn upon their extensive horn design experience to offer six distinct coverage patterns within the range. And unlike the QX500 range, the QX300 range uses different spacing for the vertical and horizontal pairs of LF devices to better match the beamwidth of the system through the crossover transition.
“EAW engineers carefully crafted the low frequency driver spacing in the QX300 range to transition smoothly to the high frequency section in both the horizontal and vertical planes,” Rocha continued. “The smaller format of the QX300 horns and the nature of a 2-way system push the optimal bandwidth of the low frequency section to a higher frequency than that found in the QX500 range. At these frequencies, the horns are exhibiting the targeted pattern control of the finished system which is most commonly wider in one plane than the other. In order to ensure a beamwidth-matched crossover on both axes, the engineering team developed a symmetrical enclosure that delivers wider LF spacing in one plane than the other. It’s like taking the founding principles of the MK Series from 15 years ago and bringing them to a completely new level.”
Like the QX500 range, all models share an identical enclosure. EAW designed the QX300 range for permanent installation only, and the products can be ordered in standard black or white or with EAW’s famous WP weather-protected coating. The QX300 range includes:
90° (h) x 90° (v)
90° (h) x 60° (v)
90° (h) x 45° (v)
60° (h) x 60° (v)
60° (h) x 45° (v)
120° (h) x 60° (v)
