|At PLASA 2003, stand D89, Fane Acoustics show their latest advances in UK built panel loudspeaker technology, the MIniPro.
Over several years Fane Acoustics has experimented with various DML (Distributed Mode Loudspeaker) technologies, the latest of which has led to the company producing the first of a new generation of compact, high-power transducers, able to produce significant sound output levels with a full-spectrum frequency response.
MiniPro is the first commercial application of these second-generation DML exciters, combined into an easily transportable lightweight package. Weighing less than 4 kg, MiniPro can deliver an astonishing 114dB peak output, handling up to 80watts (AES). A generous operating range of 60Hz right up to 21kHz makes it suitable for almost any type of program.
MiniPro will fill unusually large volumes with clean and clear non-directional sound, due to it's dispersion characteristics, whilst the flat construction allows it to be used in visually sensitive architectural situations.
When compared with pistonic drivers, the low rate at which DML loudness drops-off with distance delivers an exceptionally even level of coverage within a room or venue.
Applications for MiniPro include multimedia and speech; acoustic musical instruments, schools and houses of worship, retail spaces, restaurants and bars as well as small portable P.A.
