HALO-C is a development from the original HALO system, keeping the same breathtaking sonic performance that the original HALO system was known for. HALO-C is a truly compact solution – yet as it is capable of continuous sound pressure levels in excess of 120dB it is an ideal solution for small-to-medium theatres, houses of worship, conference & corporate A/V and even small to medium scale live sound reinforcement.
HALO-C contains a 197mm (7.8″) AMT high frequency drive unit on a bespoke waveguide, linked via a signature EM Acoustics passive crossover to a high power neodymium 8″ (203mm) LF drive unit. Exact drive unit placement, coupled with the crossover topology and waveguide design extends the horizontal coverage pattern to below 1kHz. The true plane wave output of the AMT drive unit and waveguide combination yields a precise, well-behaved vertical pattern allowing seamless array integration and minimising destructive interference between adjacent elements.
The HALO Compact enclosure is constructed from premium multi-laminate birch plywood, and is only 492mm (19.4″) wide and 17kg (37.4lbs) in weight. Intelligent bracing design minimises panel flexure, thereby reducing unwanted resonance whilst still keeping the enclosure weight low. The design of the rigging hardware is flexible for use in both flown and ground stacked configurations, and allows arrays of up to 24 elements to be assembled whilst retaining a 10:1 safety factor.
A perforated steel grille backed with acoustically transparent black fabric finishes the enclosure with a sleek but stylish appearance. Two NL4 connections are provided on the rear for input and enclosure link. The enclosure is finished in a rugged black textured polyurethane or white textured paint as standard, though RAL colour matching and weather-protected outdoor options are available.
HALO-C is ideally powered from the EM Acoustics DQ10 or DQ20 Advanced System Amplifiers, or the AQ-10 power amplifier in conjunction with the DSC48 system controller (for loudspeaker filter slopes and protection) for optimum results.
