Amate Audio’s new Benelux distributor post ISE showcase makes some noise
Imagination AV hosts ‘Experience NL’, the latest Amate Audio ‘Experience’ showcase event, to wow clients
Amate Audio’s newly appointed Benelux distributor, Imagination AV, hosted the latest in the Amate Audio series of Experience showcase events on the evening of the 20th February. The distributor presented Experience NL in the sumptuous wood-panelled surroundings of the former Chambers of Commerce Hall in the Rotterdam World Trade Centre.
The generous proportions of the venue allowed Imagination AV and Amate Audio to rig a full range of Amate Audio’s leading touring sound and AV installation systems, including flown line arrays systems. A complete line up of the Barcelona based sound company’s advanced engineered ‘smart’ sound reinforcement systems on demonstration included leading models from its Xcellence series of premium point-source and compact line array systems – offering uncompromising performance and design optimization – and Joker series of compact and versatile, self powered systems – for high performance rental and fixed installation applications.

Front of house position featured the Xcellence X210 2 x 10” compact line array – matched with the advanced, powerful and maneuverable X218W3K sub (in cardioid configuration) – and the company’s latest X12CLA ultra-compact, portable constant curvature array (deployable in both array or horizontal point-source cluster configuration), offering exceptional signal quality, constant vertical directivity and very high SPLs, in an exceptionally small form factor cabinet. The remarkable X14T coaxial active speaker system, featuring a new 14” mid driver that combines the LF performance of a conventional 15” driver with the vocal clarity and mid range response of a 12” driver was also FOH, mounted on top of the X18T 2500 W, 18” compact sub.
An entire side wall featured a line-up of Joker series high performance installation solutions featured the JK318A 3-way (18”, 12”, 1”) 3000 watt full-range system; the JK46A high-performance, light-weight 4×6” active, full-range column array, with signal quality and a frequency response exceeding that of a classic 12”+HF driver system; the JK15NA, an exceptionally powerful 2-way single 15” active speaker system; and the JK26A+, a 2-way 6” active speaker system with remarkable sound quality from an ultra compact design, that shares the same advanced 6” carbon fibre cone drivers as the JK46A; along with the JK12WA and JK18WA2, compact, high-powered, ‘smart’ subs.
Jason Lupgens, Founder and General Manager of Imagination AV says, “Having debuted Amate Audio exclusively on our booth at ISE we were able to showcase the incredible performance capabilities of the Amate systems at Experience NL, and make some noise.
It was an extremely successful event for us with some 45 attendees – almost all rental company and installation professionals – attending throughout the evening. A great first Amate Audio Experience in NL. And great to see so many faces we also met on our booth at ISE show. Now they have seen and heard, I am sure they will believe.
