Adamson E12, E218

Adamson Systems in Port Perry, Ontario, Canada, announces its E12/E218 touring packages designed for touring and rental houses needing system flexibility, quick setup and teardown. Adamson Systems has created three system configurations for end-users to use as a guideline when creating a custom sound reinforcement solution.

The Compact Set comprises16 E12 and eight E218, and is intended for use up to an audience of 10,000 with both ground stacked and flown setups possible. The Performance Set includes 24 E12 and 12 E218 cabinets to maximize application scale with minimal amplifier requirements. The High Performance Set, comprising 32 E12s and 24 E218s, is designed for sound reinforcement in arenas and outdoor festivals; it can also be split into two Compact Sets.

The recently introduced E12 is a 3-way true line source cabinet that incorporates two 12-inch Kevlar Neodymium woofers to handle the low frequency band. The midrange to HF band comprises a 7-inch Kevlar Neodymium driver and a low distortion 4-inch diaphragm compression driver mounted to the next generation of Adamson’s co-linear drive module.

The critically optimized sound chamber produces a slightly curved wavefront with a nominal dispersion pattern of 110x8 degrees (HxV). The waveguide's efficiency allows for increased horizontal dispersion without sacrificing high frequency in the far field.

Adamson developed the E218 subwoofer to pair with the E12. Two lightweight, long excursion ND18-S Kevlar Neodymium drivers are mounted in an efficient bandpass cabinet. The design promises a remarkable reduction of rear-ward radiated energy without dedicated cardioid setups and algorithms.

Adamson's Energia Autolock rigging system allows for 8-degree vertical splay. Splay positions can be set before flying the system while the cabinets are stacked four-high on a dolly, allowing quick and safe assembly by a single engineer or technician.

Adamson's Prolight+Sound booth will also feature live demonstrations of the new Adamson Blueprint 3-D software. In addition to the standard simulation features found in the company’s Shooter program, Blueprint also includes more advanced features such as 3-D mapping, multiple virtual microphone locations for examining frequency response throughout the venue, and multiple source setups. The Shooter files can be uploaded for instant use in Blueprint, which simplifies using both programs.
