The Model 4088 from DPA Microphones ( is the company's first cardioid headband mic. Designed for applications requiring high gain before feedback and situations with high background (onstage) noise levels, the Model 4088 has a response tailored for vocal applications (±2 dB from 100-20k Hz with 4-6dB soft boost at 15 kHz) and is available in unobtrusive black or beige finishes.


Turbosound's ( two-box/four-way Aspect system is the company's most efficient system to date. Designed to outperform line arrays, Aspect is scalable to fit venues from clubs to stadiums, and uses “polyhorns” — unique multicellular HF and MHF horns — to create a phase-coherent, curved wavefront with sharply defined coverage. Aspect features integral flying hardware, a rotatable mid-high section (with dual HF drivers and three 10-inch cones for midrange) for horizontal or vertical use and dual horn-loaded 15-inch woofers in the matching low box.


The Plasma speaker series from Electro-Voice ( comprises a 15-inch, two-way, bi-amped (550 plus 150 watts) Plasma P1 and the optional P2, a single 18-inch powered (800W) subwoofer. All use lightweight, no-fan, Class-H onboard amplification and premium E-V drivers, such as the EVX155 woofer and the ND6 HF driver with 3-inch diaphragm and 1.4-inch exit. A multi-angle cabinet allows use as a floor monitor or as a main system, and embedded “L” tracks and an optional Plasma Strong Arm offer numerous mounting possibilities.


New from Wharfedale Pro (, Twin X is a series of coaxial two-way speakers available in 8 to 15-inch configurations (the Twin-8, 10, 12, 15 and the Twin-C15HB and C18HB subwoofers). All are unpowered systems with internal crossovers; their compact size makes them suitable for mains, stage monitoring or near-field fill applications. All feature 18mm birch-ply cabinets, dual Speakon connectors, steel grilles, pole-mount socket for portable use, onboard HF driver protection, trapezoidal cabinets and wide, smooth dispersion. Cabinets can be ordered in a black or white finish.


Smith Pro Audio's ( lightweight 118 Pro Mobile Sub provides high-output LF performance rivaling double-18 boxes from a 37×23×23-inch cabinet that's only 99 pounds. Specs include a 38-225Hz (±3dB) frequency response and continuous power handling of 1,250 watts, with 140dB max SPLs. The birch enclosure has a tough Roadcoat finish, 16-gauge powder-coated steel grilles and Neutrik connectors. MSRP is $1,999.


Following the successful intro of the E25 and E15 amps last year, MC2 Audio (dist. in the U.S. by Group One, debuts the E45, the third in its E Series of lightweight, touring/rental amps. The E45 is built into a two-rackspace chassis and uses a switch-mode architecture to bring this 2,250-watt/channel (at 4 ohms) amp to 24 pounds, yet it retains the sonic qualities and reliability of the MC and T Series amps but without the physical weight. Features include low-distortion speaker-protection limiters with adjustable threshold points, optional 24dB/octave Linkwitz-Riley crossover cards, a five-year warranty, and full DC, short-circuit and thermal protection.
