Two leading Germany rental companies are the first takers for Nexo’s new 45N12 stage monitor loudspeaker – Babbel & Haeger OHG and Pro Musik have taken 36 units between them, the first to be made available in the country.

Both companies have been dedicated Nexo users for a number of years, and are impressed by the design and useability of Nexo’s first purpose-built wedge: ‘Not only is the N12 scalable, which makes it suitable for virtually every monitor application and able to deliver the best return on investment, but it is also acoustically outstanding,’ says Elmar Hubert from Pro Musik. ‘It is perfect for our high-end jazz and classical applications.’

45N12 stage monitorThe orders follow a demonstration held by Camco, the German Nexo distributor, for Nexo hire companies. ‘We had a lot of fun with the N12,’ reports Camco’s Reinhard Steger. ‘The technology has very clear and obvious design and technical advantages, and its unique selling points are all patented. For applications which require dedicated monitors, it makes very sound economic sense.’

The Nexo 45°N-12 wedge monitor brings line-array technology to the stage. It draws on Nexo’s patented Hyperbolic Reflective Wavesource, which is used throughout the Geo range of high-performance loudspeakers. The design works by wavesourcing, creating virtual acoustic sources behind the enclosure itself and below the stage, using reflection rather than coercion to determine the shape of the wavefront. Unlike high-frequency waveguides with a rectangular exit, the Nexo monitor’s waveguide forms a “smile”, enabling cabinets to be linked together to form arrays without interference between wavefronts.

The N-12 design produces a very sharply defined dispersion pattern at the same time as offering a high level before feedback. The focused coverage means that lower levels can be used on stage. This SPL and frequency response are consistent up to 2.5m back.

A magnetic locking system joins multiple monitors together, allowing scalability for both coverage and SPL level. The compact, low-profile design is less conspicuous than conventional monitors (ideal for live TV production), and the 45°N-12 features a non-slip base with a skid system and ergonomic handle for easy repositioning on stage.

‘We saw it, we heard it and we had to buy it,’ says Gerhard Babbel from Babbel & Haeger OHG. ‘As a premium rental company, the N12 will be our premium monitor for all applications, and I expect that this new standard will improve our service dramatically in the stage monitoring sector of our business.’
