Amate Audio’s new flagship point source is a line array killer

XEXCELLENCE new flagship point source series 2x 10” system outperforms up to four small-format line array elements in medium venue applications.

The X102FD has been developed to offer a powerful and highly efficient point source alternative to line arrays, in medium and smaller size application environments. Capable of power and performance far in excess of its compact form, the V-shaped geometry cabinet, features a symmetrical dual 10” LF driver arrangement with a 3″ titanium diaphragm, 1.4″neodymium HF driver and aluminium rotatable horn. With an Active+ integrated power and DSP control platform producing 3000 W of 2-way amplification, the X102FD is capable of 136 dB SPL continuous output.

Partnered with our X218WF sub bass…

The X102FD, allows us to offer customers a ready phase-aligned full-range ‘plug and play’ sound system, that will deliver a lot of power without the need to move a lot of weight. In terms of costs of purchase and operation, manpower and time-scale efficiencies, it is far ahead of any line array solution for venues and events of up to 1000 people.


Smart rotatable horn

The X102FD is able to be deployed in both vertically and horizontally, due to its rotatable horn with a simple ‘no tools required’ pull, turn and release mechanism. In vertical FOH applications the horn provides (HxV) 80 x 60 dispersion (in its default position). In the horizontal plane – for applications such as front-fills within a large-scale line array system, or close to ceiling hanging in an auditorium – quick rotation of the horn maintains (HxV) 80 x 60 dispersion. Likewise, (HxV) 60 x 80 coverage can be obtained in either plane.

Active+™ next generation

Unique to Active+ is the rear-mounted rapid operation 3.5” TFT colour touchscreen GUI that provides for system configuration of individual cabinets prior to stacking or rigging. This combines user-configurable system management parameters and powerful R&D developed application-specific system pre-sets that provide for near-instantaneous setup of the most common cabinet configurations in the most regularly encountered applications. Remote Ethernet or wi-fi control is enabled via Amate Audio’s DSPStudio™ application. Active+ also provides Dante™ audio networking on the X102FD, via the two rear-panel Ethernet ports.
