An innovative line array system with refined, technologically advanced engineering. These are the qualities of the new speaker that redefines the concept of line array in terms of power, size, lightness, flexibility and practicality of use. The modularity from 2 to 16 speakers allows use in a wide variety of situations, from small band to large outdoor concert.
It has two custom 250mm woofers with 64mm high excursion coil and two custom B&C drivers with 25mm throat. The waveguide, optimised with BEM finite element simulations to minimise distortion, has a horizontal dispersion of 90°. Designed to present an optimal load to the driver’s membrane starting from 800Hz, it allows the propagation of a flat acoustic wave up to over 18Khz, strictly respecting the most stringent physical criteria for an ideal cylindrical source. The acoustic configuration with the central horn allows for a particularly linear and symmetrical horizontal dispersion.
The cabinet is made of 15mm birch plywood with two die-cast aluminium handles.
The hardware integrated in the cabinet allows the suspension of 16 boxes with a 10:1 safety factor and an inclination from 0° to 10° at a step of 1°. The design of the no-compromise mechanics in terms of practicality and speed of set-up of the system makes it particularly suitable for daily touring movements.
The aesthetic elegance also makes it very suitable for fixed installations.
The pinnacle of the entire project is the 800+400W RMS amplification module with TCP/IP network interface. Based on the OCA ALLIANCE AES70 standard, the new HORIZON family receives 24-bit 48-96Khz digital audio streaming from all devices compatible with the DANTE standard and communicates with the INFINITO System Management Suite remote control software. The module is contained in an aluminium chassis with intelligent forced ventilation and is equipped with an OLED display with encoder for parameter setting and a high-brightness blue front LED allows remote identification of the device, also in daylight. Fully developed in house by the FBT R&D team, INFINITO is the revolution that enhances the user experience, reaching new heights in terms of performance and simplicity.
To extend the low frequencies, the MUSE system includes two subwoofer models:
MUSE118SND is an innovative reversible subwoofer for cardioid configurations with integrated suspension hardware. Innovative hybrid acoustic band-pass configuration with single 460mm B&C woofer and 88mm neodymium coil and integrated 1600W RMS amplifier capable of 140dB SPL, ideal to be suspended together with the MUSE210LND or in a separate cluster.
MUSE218SND is a direct radiation ground subwoofer, it has 2 B&C 460mm long-range woofers and 4000W class D amplification capable of 148.5dB SPL. The subwoofer serves as the basis for ground-stack configurations and is equipped with a preset for cardioid configuration.
Both have a switching power supply unit, OLED display with encoder and TCP/IP OCA70 interface compatible to communicate with the ‘INFINITO system management suite’ software.
Using the AFMG’s EASE FOCUS 3 PC software, it is possible to design the most appropriate configuration by simulating SPL distribution and system frequency response in listening areas.
