Adamson Systems Engineering has formally launched the IS10p and IS7p, a new pair of point source additions to its heralded IS-Series of install-focused loudspeaker products.
“The response to our IS-Series offerings from integrators around the world has been very encouraging since we introduced the series last year,” begins Brian Fraser, Product Manager for Adamson. “Since the launch, our partners in the Adamson Network have made it clear that there’s a demand for high-powered point source models that match the performance of the other IS-Series products. These point sources not only offer unmatched audio quality in their field, but also exhibit a sharp but discreet aesthetic that keeps the focus on the architecture in any given application.”
The IS7p and IS10p join the IS7 and IS10 two-way, full-range line array cabinets and IS118 and IS119 subwoofers in the IS-Series, which packs Adamson’s sophisticated tour-grade technology into a sleek package with rugged and unobtrusive rigging solutions.
The IS7p is a two-way point source cabinet with two ND7-LM16 7” Kevlar® Low-Mid drivers (2x 16 Ω) and one NH3-8 1.4” exit compression driver (8 Ω). The IS10p is a two-way point source cabinet containing two ND10-LM 10” Kevlar® Low-Mid drivers (2x 16 Ω) and again one NH3-8 1.4” exit compression driver (8 Ω).
Both loudspeakers feature newly designed waveguides, which have been refined through boundary element analysis (BEM) and incorporate the best aspects of 30 years of Adamson waveguide technology. The rotatable waveguides are available with nominal dispersion patterns of 70° x 40° or 100° x 50°, respectively, and ensure a smooth transition from on- to off-axis positions, delivering natural sound without diffraction or lobing. Depending on the application, their full-range capabilities can negate the need for a subwoofer, and with their high SPL-to-size ratio, the IS7p and IS10p are remarkably efficient solutions.
The choices in dispersion pattern enable the IS7p and IS10p to be used as main systems or to supplement larger setups as fill cabinets in theatres, musicals, and houses of worship as well as dance clubs, large meeting rooms, and arenas. The comprehensive rigging options mean the new models can be easily deployed for all of these applications, from main house systems to under-balcony and lip fills and beyond.
The cabinets feature marine-grade birch plywood and aircraft-grade aluminum and steel. The models come equipped with Speakon NL4 connectors (IS7p and IS10p) or barrier strips (IS7pb and IS10pb). A plate-and-screw rigging system is placed on four faces of the enclosure, with a multitude of accessories allowing the enclosure to be deployed seamlessly in a variety of applications.
