Nexo has unveiled its ePS Series of installation loudspeakers, with three two-way passive cabinets and two partner subs representing the first models in a ‘utility’ range.

Drawing on 25 years of the company’s PS Series, Nexo engineers have taken a ‘no-frills’ approach to the new range, slimming down connection and mounting options, and taking advantage of new manufacturing techniques and driver design to hit unprecedented price points for its industry-standard point source products. ePS models will provide a way for many public and private installation projects to access a Nexo-badged system without breaking the bank.

Nexo ePS/eLS Series line-upDesigned specifically for fixed installation, the ePS Series packages Nexo’s output, coverage patterns, directional control and performance into compact trapezoidal-shaped wooden enclosures, with steel grilles for IP54 (and IP55) certified weather resistance.

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, the ePS6, ePS8 and ePS10 offer Peak SPL stats of 125dB, 128dB and 130dB respectively. The ePS6 weighs in at just 7.1kg, with a footprint of 367mm x 200mm x 182mm, and has 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, is 533mm x 318mm x 283mm and has a frequency response of 70Hz–20kHz.

All three cabinets are minimally fitted with a hard-wired strip for connection, offering generic 2x 7mm pitch in/out screws 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 eyebolts. The back of each speaker is fitted with 3x M6 with 70mm pitch for wallmount 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 loudspeakers are partnered by a dedicated sub-bass option, although they are phase-compatible with any model from the Nexo range. In the case of the ePS Series, two powerful compact subs are being released – 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, thanks to its discrete easy-to-integrate design. Weighing just 14.5kg, and measuring 365mm x 425mm x 447mm, this 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. Cleverly, the width and height dimensions of the rectangular subs match their partner main cabinets: a dedicated accessory allows the ePS to be flown beneath the subwoofer, creating small-footprint wideband systems.

On the four sides of the cabinet, 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 screws terminal blocks, while the included IP cover protects the connectors from moisture in outdoor applications.
