Comprising six 5.25-inch drivers, the woofer's straight-line array has controlled vertical dispersion, while the tweeter's nine 3-inch proprietary ribbon planar drivers have internally articulated driver elements, allowing wider vertical dispersion.

Audix ( debuts the MicroBoom, a 50-inch carbon-fiber mic boom arm/short flexible gooseneck combo that attaches to any mic stand for horizontal or vertical use.

System Architect eliminates the need for disparate operating systems, multiple control and configuration applications, and the need to program individual signal processors, speaker controllers, wireless microphone systems and mixing consoles.

Radial Engineering's ( PRO D2 is a high-quality, ultra-compact, stereo passive direct box featuring two custom-made transformers capable of handling high levels without saturation and exhibiting exceptionally linear frequency response from 20 to 20k Hz. The PRO D2 has a -15dB pad for high-output sources and a ground lift switch. Designed for interfacing with stereo keyboards, DJ equipment and consumer audio devices, it's housed in a rugged, 14-gauge steel enclosure with a bookend-design outer shell that prevents damage to the switches.

Distributed by American Music & Sound (, the EX12 ($2,499) high-output active speaker from KV2 Audio features a new 3-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver, offering what is said to be the industry's largest neodymium magnetic motor structure. The 12-inch woofer uses a transcoil technology that eliminates voice coil inductance, behaving like a woofer at lower frequencies and like a midrange at higher frequencies. The 500W internally bi-amped system can reach sustained SPLs of 127 dB, and features an asymmetrical, trapezoidal Baltic birch cabinet with side handles, M10 hang points and omnimount compatibility. Also available is the EX12t touring version with recessed fly track.
