The ST-215 is a compact touring subwoofer, intended to support any product within the EM Acoustics range but is an ideal companion to the HALO-B medium format line array. The feature set is optimised for touring applications however the discreet aesthetics mean the ST-215 is equally at home in installations.
  • Integral four-point touring flying system
  • Mechanically and acoustically compatible with HALO-B
  • M20 threaded polemount adapter
  • Protective floor runners and matching stacking recesses
  • Various transport, protection and flying accessories available
  • Impact and weather resistant black or white textured finish as standard
  • RAL colour and weather protection options

The ST-215 is a compact touring subwoofer, and whilst it is designed to be mechanically and acoustically compatible with the new HALO-B system, it is a standalone product in its own right and can be used to support any EM Acoustics product – either in a flown or ground stack configuration.

The compact enclosure houses a pair of 4” voice coil, 15” (381mm) neodymium drive units, in an optimally-tuned reflex design with a single low-velocity port to minimise distortion generated by turbulence. The drive units’ high motor strength gives the ST-215 excellent transient response, and the moving area of the two high-excursion 15” drive units generate significant low frequency extension and overall subwoofer output. The enclosure is symmetrical, so in both flown and ground stacked configurations one enclosure in every three can be rotated to point physically backwards to create a cardioid array. Such arrays offer exceptional low frequency directivity control and significantly reduce the energy radiating to the rear of the subwoofers.

The robust enclosure is constructed from premium 18mm (¾”) multi-laminate Birch plywood – rebated, screwed and glued together for maximum strength. The enclosure is finished in an impact and weather resistant black or white textured polyurethane finish as standard, though RAL colour matching and enhanced weather-protected outdoor options are available. To make best use of this weather resistance the robust grille and all fixings are stainless steel and the drive units are weather protected, meaning the ST- 215 is ready for outdoor use straight out of the box.

The flying hardware has been built with touring flexibility and reliability in mind. The ST-215 uses a 4-point system, and all rigging components retract flush for transit and ground stack use. Using the FG-HALO-B master flying grid, the ST-215 is mechanically compatible with HALO-B systems or can be flown as a stand alone array. Ultra-high tensile steel parts form the core of the 4-point system, meaning arrays of up to 9 elements can be safely assembled with above-regulation safety factors.

The mechanical package is completed by a mesh-backed stainless steel grille, eight recessed bar handles (four per side), protective stacking runners and mating recesses, an M20 threaded pole adapter and attachment points for the optional castors on the rear.

The ST-215 requires external active high/low pass filters and a single amplifier channel to function correctly – as such it is recommended to be used with EM Acoustics’ range of Advanced System Amplifiers. It is however possible to use other DSP-enabled amplifiers, or conventional amplifiers with external DSP. Suitable DSP settings are provided on the EM Acoustics website. The amplifier should be capable of delivering 3000-4000W RMS into a 4-ohm load. For cardioid arrays, separate amplifier channels are required for the rear-firing subwoofer(s) due to the different processing needed.

Optional accessories include castor sets, multi-enclosure touring wheelcarts, flying grids and padded covers for both single enclosures and multi-enclosure carts
