The possibilities are endless. Please contact us with your requirements and we’ll put together a perfect EAW system for your application.
EAW Anya is a complete, self-contained, high-power sound reinforcement system that adapts all performance parameters electronically, allowing it to be used in virtually any application. Columns of Anya modules hang straight, without any vertical splay, and Resolution 2 software adapts total system performance to produce asymmetrical output that delivers coherent, full-frequency range response across the entire coverage area as defined by the user. It is extremely powerful and immensely scalable, making it suitable for anything from small venues to the largest stadiums. Each Anya module includes 14x 1-in exit / 35mm voice coil HF compression drivers loaded on a proprietary HF horn that expands to fill nearly the entire face of the enclosure. 6x 5-in MF cone transducers, arranged in two columns of three, use Radial Phase Plugs™ and Concentric Summation Array™ technology to enter the horn and sum coherently with the HF wavefront. Dual 15-in LF cone transducers use Off-Center Aperture loading to increase the spacing of the apparent acoustical centers, extending effective horizontal pattern control well into the LF range. The module’s horizontal symmetry ensures coherent summation without anomalies through the crossover regions that result from physically-offset acoustic sources. This provides consistent, HF dispersion and broadband pattern control in the horizontal plane. Each Anya module includes a field-replaceable power and processing unit with 22 channels of digital signal processing and amplification to drive each of the module’s 22 transducers. Via Resolution 2 software, Adaptive Performance controls all performance parameters of the total array to develop an asymmetrical output profile shaped so that all listening locations as defined by the user receive nearly identical response. By carefully crafting the size and spacing of the transducers, EAW engineers enabled Anya to create radical coverage patterns (i.e., narrowly focused and directed almost straight down) while maintaining an appealing, musical sound quality.
EAW Otto™ is the world’s first Adaptive™ subwoofer. Utilizing two Offset Aperture™-loaded woofers paired with independent on-board amplification, processing and networking, Otto extends Adaptive Performance™ to the lowest octaves of the audible spectrum. Otto will perfectly balance low-frequency coverage with cancellation to suit the user’s requirements; omni, cardioid, hyper-cardioid or anywhere in between from just a single module. Combined in arrays, Otto provides users with nearly endless possibilities in low-frequency pattern control.
Each Otto module includes two high-power 18” cones featuring Offset Aperture loading to generate four optimally-spaced acoustical sources; one in each corner. In addition to allowing multiple enclosure orientations without compromising output, this loading technique also provides exceptional efficiency and minimizes harmonic distortion, even when the system is driven to maximum levels. Ingenious transducer, port and enclosure design allow Otto to achieve extremely high output levels while providing impact and low-frequency extension typical of much larger enclosures.
Anna™ is the newest introduction to EAW’s flagship line of Adaptive™ Systems, providing all the benefits of Adaptive performance in a high-output mid-sized enclosure. Weighing just 135 lbs. (61 kg), the extraordinary output-to-weight ratio makes Anna exceptionally versatile, with applications ranging from small clubs and houses of worship to large arenas and touring productions. Anna’s 100° horizontal dispersion further extends the capabilities of Adaptive Systems; columns of Anna can be flown as mains or mixed with columns of Anya™ within the same array for even greater coverage possibilities. Like all Adaptive Systems, Anna is controlled via Resolution™ 2 software over the Dante™ network and utilizes the same standardized power and data infrastructure.
LINE SOURCE SOUND
The KF Series is the largest of EAW’s product series and includes several sub-series. All loudspeaker systems in the KF Series feature three-way design. Each sub-series apply three-way design to meet a particular set of requirements.
The JFL Series brings JF Series two-way performance to a compact, easy-to-use line array module intended for mobile production or permanent installation. JFL Series arrays can be flown, ground stacked or pole mounted (two modules maximum). Series also includes a dedicated subwoofer system. This is the perfect system for a medium sized rental company that wants to take their audio performance to the next level. The flexibility of the JFL series allows you to do a multitude of different events with pristine audio quality.
POINT SOURCE SOUND
The JF Series contains EAW’s high-output, two-way systems intended for mobile production or permanent installation. That is, a single version supports both permanent installation and mobile production. The series ranges from ultra-compact systems with 6- or 8-in LF cones through 12- and 15-in LF cones with a choice of HF coverage patterns. NT Powered versions of larger JF Series systems are also available
The MK series includes three sub-series each of which shares a common enclosure as well as three dedicated subwoofer systems. All MK Series systems feature large-format HF horns that maintain pattern control throughout the crossover region, enabling EAW’s beam width matching crossover technology that improves performance through the crossover region. The various dispersion angles in the MK series makes this the perfect installation solution. We can deisgn the perfect MK-system to match your coverage requirements. No area will be left untouched by the brilliant EAW sound.
The KF Series is the largest of EAW’s product series and includes several sub-series. All loudspeaker systems in the KF Series feature three-way design. Each sub-series apply three-way design to meet a particular set of requirements. Three-way deisgn in a compact portable application. the KF3x4 series will take any performance to the next level by producing three-way clarity from a two-way sized cabinet. This range also comes with mounting points for permanent installation applications. Truly flexible.
EAW’s state of the art high output solution for permanent installation. The QX series includes two ranges – QX500 and QX300 – each of which delivers a choice of coverage patterns from systems that use identical enclosures. The QX series takes sound quality in permanent applications to the next level. The unique design promises a fantastic performance for any application.
