P.Audio System demonstrated a new range of HF horns at this year's NAMM2008 Convention. P.Audio is also a leading supplier of OEM loudspeaker component solutions for a number of household-name brands, and will be exhibiting on Booth 6894 in Hall A. In addition to LF horns, the company offers a comprehensive range of high-performance low- and high-frequency component drivers.
The PH-Series of high-frequency horns include a number of designs that mate directly with P.Audio System's high-performance compression drivers. "All of our horns feature industry-standard throat diameters," states company managing director Howard Chen, "and are compatible with many other brands of compression drivers." Adaptors also are available to mate P.Audio System horns to competitive compression drivers, and to mate P.Audio compression drivers to competitive high-frequency horns. "Each horn is optimized for a specific radiation pattern and application," Chan continues. "We offer both short-throw - 90x40-degree - and medium-throw - 60x40-degree - horn patterns to provide a full acoustic coverage solution to any room or environment."
Three PH-Series models - PH94, PH64 and PH85 - are professional-quality horns; the P94 and P64 are also fully rotatable. Because the horn's mouth geometry is square, horizontal and vertical radiation patterns may be alternated in any mounting configuration. For example, the PH-94, which produces a 90-degree horizontal by 40-degree vertical pattern, can be rotated 90 degrees to produce a 40x90-degree vertical pattern. "This feature is extremely useful in enclosed spaces where specific coverage areas must be achieved," Chan considers.
The PH-64 HF horn is a wide bandwidth high-frequency horn with a constant-directivity design that features a square mouth that enables a rotatable directivity configuration. The PH-64 may be rotated between a 60x40-degree horizontal-by-vertical pattern to a 40x60-degree horizontal-by-vertical coverage pattern for a high-performance medium- to long-throw HF waveguide. The design enables the horn to be used in sound reinforcement systems where a flat front system geometry is specified. The PH-64 features a 1.4-inch/35.5 mm) diameter throat and is compatible with many of P.Audio's PreNeo and BMD Series compression drivers, in addition to many other units. Construction is a rugged, glass-filled ABS, and is fully braced to provide excellent structural support to the mated compression driver. The horn mouth dimensions of 12-by- 12 inches make the PH-64 an ideal mate for both 12-inch low frequency drivers as well as 15-in transducers.
"P.Audio's state of the art engineering and manufacturing facilities are truly world class and its products are supplied to every region of the world," Chen concludes. "We supply premium-quality OEM and P.Audio-branded products that cover the entire spectrum of professional applications and requirements."
