Versatile surface mount design ideal for numerous applications
Greensboro, NC – July 2011… WorxAudio Technologies, a leading manufacturer of loudspeaker systems for the pro touring and install markets, is pleased to introduce the new I/O-4 loudspeaker system. A small format,high performance sound reinforcement system designed for high quality foreground and background music applications, the new surface mount I/O-4 is the ideal solution for use in a wide range of settings, including restaurants / bars, retail environments, hotel lobbies, under balcony fill, and corporate industrial training / meeting spaces.
With its injection molded, high-impact polycarbonate enclosure, the new I/O-4 makes a terrific choice for use both indoors and outdoors— wherever quality music and speech reinforcement is specified. Available in black or white, the system also includes a standard mounting bracket with weather-resistant, stainless steel hardware designed for flexible aiming and easy installation. Featuring a contemporary appearance that includes a powder-coated, stainless steel mesh grill to protect the transducer complement, the new I/O-4 blends aesthetically with a wide range of decors.
Ideal for use in 100 -Volt distributed audio systems; the new WorxAudio I/O-4 employs a multi-tap transformer defined for 50-, 25-, 12-, and 5-watt settings. The new I/O-4 may also be easily configured for a standard low impedance direct input.
The new WorxAudio I/O-4’s transducer complement is as innovative as the system’s outward appearance. The I/O-4 utilizes a two element array of high output, 4-inch (101.6mm) LF (low frequency) transducers. The horn loaded HF (high frequency) wave guide with its 1-inch driver incorporating a Titanium diaphragm is positioned between the two element arrays to ensure coherent and balanced high frequency response. Polar lobing is controlled by this geometry and produces a properly aimed response at the crossover frequency. The 3-way, full range bass reflex enclosure provides Push Terminal connectors at the rear for easy system connection. The loudspeaker’s frequency response ranges from 75 Hz – 19 kHz.
Hugh Sarvis, WorxAudio Technologies’ CEO and Director of Engineering, commented on the new I/O-4. “The new I/O-4 is WorxAudio’s first injection molded, surface mount loudspeaker designed for use in 70-Volt environments,” notes Sarvis. “While it is certainly an excellent choice for restaurants, bars, and retail applications, this loudspeaker considerably rounds out our product line. In addition to providing the small, medium, and large format enclosures for concert halls, theaters, and similar spaces, we can now provide a versatile, cost-effective SR solution for a building’s lobby and secondary areas—thus enabling installed sound professionals to secure all loudspeakers for their project from a single vendor. I’m confident the systems’ sound quality and contemporary appearance make a great choice for a wide range of applications.”
The WorxAudio I/O-4 carries an MSRP of $230.00. The loudspeaker is available now.
