AKG Acoustics introduces MAXmodular, an integrated mixer/amplifier/speaker system, at InfoComm 2003. MAXmodular is designed specifically for use in small mobile sound systems for public address, paging, conferencing or background music applications.

MAXmodular is a powered, 8-inch, two-way speaker that can be either AC- or battery-powered for 10 to 14 hours of operation. It has an integrated 3-channel mixer with a phantom-powered microphone input, a wireless receiver input and stereo line inputs for CD players or tape decks. MAXmodular also has an integrated slot for AKG half-rack WMS 80 (diversity) and WMS40 (nondiversity) wireless receivers and can supply DC voltage for their operation. There are two line outputs that can be used for recording or to cascade the signal to additional MAXmodular systems.

MAXmodular's tour-grade wood enclosure has a metal standmount built in and has an integral handle for easy transportation; the entire system weights 26.7 pounds. The built-in amplifier delivers 60 watts peak and can drive the system to 114dB SPL output. There is a 2-band equalizer for sound contouring, and a built-in limiter prevents overload and significant clipping. The speaker has a coverage pattern of 80 degrees x 80 degrees to allow it to be positioned horizontally or vertically with identical coverage.

According to Kevin Madden, AKG's market development manager for installed sound, "MAXmodular is the perfect solution for many sound reinforcement applications that need a system with the flexibility of being battery- or AC-powered and delivers clean, solid audio performance. The built-in 3-channel mixer and flexible signal routing make it easy to set up and use."
