NX Series - NX600-2

15-inch / 1.5-inch - 1000 watts

The NX600-2 is the first 15-inch and horn molded loudspeaker from Yorkville Sound. This 1000-watt passive box is using a new injection molded technology and features a first for composite loudspeakers, a rotatable 80° x 50° horn patterned after the custom ABS waveguide horn used in our popular élite loudspeaker line.

Overview

The unique trapezoidal shape employed on the NX600-2 allows the cabinet to be used as a monitor or front-of-house loudspeaker and makes it ideal for mounting in tight arrays, or in multiple cabinet clusters. The NX600-2 handles 2000 watt peaks with its high effiency 15-inch woofer and 1.5-inch polyester high frequency driver.

The NX600-2 uses the same proven 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.
