APG, the French manufacturer of high-end professional loudspeakers and inventor of the modular line array, has unveiled its full range of subwoofers from the SB Series at Prolight + Sound 2017.
Consisting in four models – the SB110, SB112, SB115-M2 and SB118 – the new SB range provides ultimate flexibility for both rental stagers and integrators. All subwoofers were engineered using the same acoustic load based on the variation of band pass design to maximise performance: 300W for the 10” SB110, 600W for the 12” SB112, 1000W for the 15” SB115 and 1400W for the 18” SB118.
Designed for low to very low frequency reinforcement of small to high power sound systems, the new SB range from APG stands out with its compactness and sonic performances in infra bass frequency range. All four models feature excellent accuracy in low frequency reproduction and impressive precision. The SB110 and SB112 host a ventilated ferrite cone driver, while the SB115-M2 and SB118 feature a Neodymium driver.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the successful Uniline Compact (UC) range, which was introduced to an international audience at Prolight + Sound 2016. The Uniline Compact has since convinced all industry professionals who had the opportunity to hear the product in action: Dozens of service providers, integrators and end users from Europe and Asia have been praising the impressive performances of the new system, which packs incredible punch for its size, including in the lower ends.
APG’s marketing & business development director Grégory Dapsanse, explained why the system is so successful with audio professionals: “The Uniline Compact is the ideal range of speakers for people who are looking for ultimate flexibility in a compact box. This versatility quickly translates into profitability for rental companies and competitiveness for integrators.
“When put to the test against other brands with similar speaker size, the UC range has won a number of comparative shootouts organised by brand agnostic professionals. Its superiority lies in its bi-amplified three acoustic ways in one hand, and the horns’ constant directivity.” Dapsanse added.
In France and Belgium only, APG’s historical market, 15 service providers acquired the Uniline Compact loudspeakers while five venues have been fitted with them, with a similar success in Europe and Asia: The level of flexibility of the UC system is such that it was successfully deployed for an impressive range of projects including TV shows, concerts and festivals – from jazz to rock and form classical to world music – as well as corporate, sport and religious events, sound and light shows, theatre venues, circus, and multipurpose halls.
In order to meet with the growing demand, APG also reinforced its workforce with three new hires within a year: one R&D engineer and two client support engineers.
