|Duran Audio launched its AXYS Beam Shaping Subwoofers at prolight+sound 2010, Frankfurt, Germany. The AXYS range of beam shaping subwoofers will also be demonstrated at InfoComm 2010, Las Vegas, Room N105. The sunwoofers are designed to be totally versatile, scalable and easy to use. According to Duran Audio, those who invest in the technology can achieve maximum control for the minimum of investment. One day you could use a huge array of subs to control the low
end at a large arena or stadium gig and the next day you could use one unit on its own in a simple conference setup or three units
combined in a cardioid like set up in a theatre.
Being able to control the dispersion of the bass array in a reverberant space, such as a large indoor arena or concert hall you can add more definition and punch to the low end and banish flabby undefined bass sound. Controlling the dispersion of a bass array can also help deal with the tricky problem of noise pollution at large outdoor events. By shaping and steering the dispersion of the array you can maximise the experience for the audience whilst keeping the neighbours happy, too.
