|Community continues to celebrate ‘40 Years of Innovative Loudspeakers’ at InfoComm 2008, Las Vegas, and visitors will see a host of new products with live demonstrations at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm in the Community demo room N112. The stylish M12, multipurpose iBOX and VLF subwoofer series are among the new products that will be demonstrated alongside the versatile VERIS installation range, the hard-working portable S-Series and rugged, all-weather R-Series.|
Community’s popular M12 stage monitor has been redesigned to improve ease of handling, access to inputs and to provide for optional mounting for fixed installations. The M12 is know for its performance and stylish, low-profile exterior. Now, in response to customer feedback, Community has improved the M12 with rubber pocket grip handles for better portability, and a larger, easier-to-access connector base. Also, for installers seeking to mount the M12 to walls or ceilings, an optional built-to-order install version will also be available with four M10 hang points and a mounting bracket plate for permanent installation.
The 20-model iBOX range of installation loudspeakers has now been expanded to offer portable versions of all iBOX full-range models, equipped with handles, rubber feet and stacking cups on four recessed corner mounting points.
Community will also launch the new VLF Series of Versatile Low Frequency loudspeakers. The VLF line boasts a compact, low-profile design that is ideal for theaters, restaurants, houses of worship and other applications, fitting into areas where larger subwoofers are impractical. The dual 8-inch VLF208 and dual 12-inch VLF212 are the first in a series of powerful and innovative new low frequency subwoofers. With a response down to 75 Hz in passive mode or 60 Hz using digital signal processing, the VLF208 can function in pairs as a steered bass array, and is equipped with fly points and four rubber feet. The VLF212 features slot-loaded woofers for extended low frequency response down to 50 Hz in passive mode or 35 Hz using DSP, and will be available in a portable or installed version with an integrated amplifier beginning in the fourth quarter of 2008.
