Fulcrum Acoustic announced the introduction of two additions to the company’s CCX range of compact coaxial passive cardioid loudspeakers: the eight-inch CCX8 series and the 15-inch CCX15 series. The Whitinsville, Mass.-based company is, of course, a manufacturer of professional loudspeaker technologies.
CCX passive cardioid coaxial loudspeakers are particularly effective for high-fidelity, foreground distributed systems, as well as for systems requiring targeted pattern control. Their unique trapezoidal shaped enclosures allow for mounting very close to ceilings with minimal effect on sight lines, which facilitates acceptance by interior designers and architects. They are ideal for houses of worship, theaters, restaurants, transportation facilities, theme parks and more. Other features include mounting brackets, hydrophobic stainless steel rear ports for outdoor applications, and weather resistant and custom color options.
The CCX eight-inch coaxial system is offered in two horn patterns: CCX896 (90° x 60°) and CCX826 (120° x 60°).
Like the CCX 12-inch models, the CCX15 15-inch coaxial system is offered in a full range of five patterns:
CCX1595 (90° x 45°)
CCX1565 ( 60° x 45°)
CCX1577 ( 75° x 75°)
CCX1500 (100° x 100°)
CCX1526 ( 120° x 60°)
“Unlike conventional loudspeakers that trade off low frequency (LF) directional control for compact enclosures, our Passive Cardioid Technology enables CCX loudspeakers to achieve unprecedented LF/HF control for products of their size,” explains Fulcrum Acoustic co-founder and vice president of R&D David Gunness. “Combining the benefits of this technology with Temporal Equalization (TQ), single-amplified CCX products deliver impressive LF directional control, improved intelligibility, and enhanced sonic accuracy in lighter and more compact enclosures than those with offset drivers.”
Both the CCX eight-inch and 15-inch models provide 7dB of LF attenuation in the rear hemisphere.
