NEXO unveils price-sensitive installation speaker series

NEXO has used this year’s PLASA exhibition to unveil an all-new family of cost-effective installation loudspeakers. At launch, the ePS series comprises three two-way passive cabinets and two accompanying subbass units, and takes a no-frills approach with slimmed-down connection and mounting options. The French manufacturer explains that by taking advantage of new manufacturing techniques and driver designs, it has been able to reach “unprecedented price points” for its point source products, and that ePS models provide a way for many public and private installation projects to access a NEXO-badged system without breaking the bank.

The ePS range features three lightweight point source models, in 6-inch, 8-inch and 10-inch iterations. Each cabinet includes a 1.4-inch HF driver and lightweight LF driver, with NEXO’s trademark rotatable-horn design offering dispersion options to the user.

Presented in Baltic birch plywood with steel grilles for IP54 (and IP55) certified weather resistance, the ePS6, ePS8 and ePS10 offer peak SPL stats of 125dB, 128dB and 130dB respectively. The ePS6 weighs 7.1kg, with a footprint of 367mm x 200mm x 182mm and a frequency response of 90Hz–20kHz. The ePS8 weighs 8.1kg, has a profile of 425mm x 252mm x 227mm and a frequency response of 80Hz–20kHz. The most powerful of the three models, the ePS 10, weighs 14.8kg, occupies a 533mm x 318mm x 283mm footprint and has a frequency response of 70Hz–20kHz.

All three cabinets are minimally fitted with a hard-wired strip for connection, offering two generic 7mm pitch in/out screw connectors. The IP cover protects the connectors from moisture in outdoor applications. On each side of the cabinet, two M6 with 80mm pitch and one M10 fitting allow connection to U Bracket, bumper or eye bolts. The back of each speaker is fitted with three M6 with 70mm pitch for wall mounting in both horizontal and vertical positions. All units are finished in black structural paint – white and all other RAL colours are available to order – with a UV-resistant acoustic fabric stretched over the front grille.

All three of the main ePS models are intended to be paired with a dedicated subbass option, although they are phase-compatible with any NEXO model. In the case of ePS, two compact subs have joined the series – the single 12-inch eLS400 and single 15-inch eLS600 – which match the aesthetic of the full-range cabinets.

The eLS400 is a compact installation sub that can be stacked or flown, weighing 14.5kg and measuring 365mm x 425mm x 447mm. The single 12-inch sub has been conceived as the partner for both the ePS6 and ePS8 cabinets.

The eLS600 is 425mm x 533mm x 562mm and weighs 26.3kg, using a high-excursion 15-inch driver in a bass-reflex enclosure design capable of 136dB peak output. It is designed to partner the ePS8 and ePS10. The width and height dimensions of the rectangular subs perfectly match their main partner cabinets: a dedicated accessory allows the ePS to be flown beneath the subwoofer, creating small-footprint wideband systems that are visually pleasing.

Two M10 fittings connect the eLS600 to U bracket, eye bolts or dedicated accessories. Unused M10 fittings can be used for extra rigging points in areas where legislation requires it. Rear connection is via two (in/out) pairs of screw terminal blocks, while the included IP cover protects the connectors from moisture in outdoor applications.
