Phonic unveiled the first wireless active PA speaker specifically for use in live sound applications such as clubs, auditoriums, conference rooms and houses of worship. Performer Series active speakers utilize the 2.4 GHz spectrum to communicate wirelessly with mixers and other Performer speakers. They can also be used in conjunction with Phonic wireless microphones for a completely wireless PA solution.
Performer Series speakers have a built-in Linkwitz-Riley electronic crossover and two custom tailored power amplifiers - one each for high- and low-frequency transducers.
Performer active speakers have the option of wired of wireless operation. This gives incredible flexibility when hooking them up to the PA system. They can be used with a wireless microphone with very little setup and no audio cables required. Or, a wireless mixer module can be used to wirelessly transmit the signal from the mixer to the Performer active speakers in mono or stereo image, making this truly the world's first wireless PA speaker. Performer active speakers have an attractive yet impact-resistant design. The asymmetrical molded enclosure is made of highly durable polypropylene and is designed for use as a stage monitor, stand-mounted speaker or for permanent installation. The Performer speakers come in 12" or 15" sizes, with 90 to 275 Watts continuous output.
Phonic's Performer Series Active Speakers will begin shipping in March. Suggested retail prices start at $319. The optional wireless modules have a suggested retail price of $55 USD (and $65 for the two-way receiver/transmitter).
