Legacy Series - NX250

250w, 12-inch / 1-inch Speaker

The NX250 is the direct replacement to the successful NX12 loudspeaker, and like its predecessor, it has a 12-inch ceramic magnet woofer, 1-inch Mylar high frequency driver and handles 250 watts. The NX250 now has an 80° x 50° waveguide horn molded into the loudspeaker baffle, and has a slightly larger cabinet volume for increased low frequency response. The new horn, patterned after the popular horn used in the élite loudspeakers provides better dispersion in both front of house and wedge monitor applications.

Features

  • Ultra-light variable density acoustic foam construction
  • Dual purpose full range and wedge monitor format enclosure
  • Ultra-clear reproduction throughout bandwidth
  • Ultra-high efficiency performance requires less power for more output
  • Ceramic Magnet Woofers
  • High quality 1" High Frequency drivers
  • Next generation woofer / driver / horn technology
  • Integrated flying hardware (3/8" threaded holes)
  • Tough, full length metal grille
  • Recessed Input panels
  • PTC™ HF protection system

Overview

The NX250 also features our ingenious PTC™ (Positive Temperature Coefficient) protection on the high frequency compression driver. PTC™ is an ingenious current sensing / self resetting breaker that offers some serious advantages over current protection schemes used in many loudspeaker cabinets. This protection scheme, while always present in the signal path, remains inaudible until it becomes necessary for it to react. It kicks in at a point where it effectively reduces output to the horn and protects that diaphragm from damage due to excessive power input or signal distortion. Unlike a breaker it does not require a physical reset to allow signal back to the horn driver, and unlike a bulb or fuse, does not need to be replaced if the circuit is tripped, and the fuse is blown. Where PTC™ shines is in heavy feedback environments where most horn diaphragm damage occurs. In rare situations even where a microphone might be dropped in a monitor, the sustained 'squeal' can destroy diaphragms in seconds. PTC™ will significantly reduce output level to the horn to protect the diaphragm. When the situation has been rectified, and the feedback eliminated the horn will return to full operating level within half a second.

The NX250 enclosure itself has been molded for maximum versatility. The trapezoid box is ideal for mounting in arrays, or for use as a monitor. An improved wedge monitor angle has been incorporated into the new design.
