The NuQ-12 is a switchable active/passive full range two-way loudspeaker system designed to be used with Turbosound LMS series digital loudspeaker management systems, providing optimum system performance.
NuQ systems can be controlled over a BVNet network using TurboDrive™ control software. It consists of a front loaded 12" neodymium LF driver and a 1.4" neodymium HF compression driver on a rotatable 80°H x 50°V Converging Elliptical Waveguide™, matched with an internal passive crossover network in a reflex-loaded enclosure, giving excellent pattern control and allowing a swap of horizontal and vertical coverage patterns. Bi-amp mode can be enabled by means of a rear panel switch.
The trapezoidal enclosure is uniquely formed out of pre-bent plywood, which entirely eliminates four cabinet joints and provides additional benefits of superior strength, low weight and reduced internal reflections. The symmetrical shape creates an additional role as mirrored left/right monitor wedges.
The cabinet includes a steel mesh grille backed with reticulated foam, and is finished in black or optional white textured paint and includes rigging points for use with optional flying yokes and wall brackets, as well as being compatible with OmniMount™ loudspeaker brackets. A pole mount socket is fitted for use with 35mm poles and speaker stands.
The rear panel connector plate carries two Neutrik Speakon NL4MP connectors for loop in and loop out connections to additional enclosures.
