Two new loudspeakers are joining the Pioneer Professional Audio XY Series: the XY-1 and XY-2E. Developed to allow more versatile use of the XY-3B, the XY-1 and XY-2E represent the LF and MHF sections respectively and each unit is available in black.
Using these individual enclosures enables installers, rental houses and touring companies to easily build ground stacked point-source arrays and deploy systems in venues with low ceilings via a wide variety of configurations.
XY Series loudspeakers provide excellent reliability and outstanding audio quality to nightclubs and music venues around the world. In September 2017, Pioneer Pro Audio introduced the XY-3B and XY-2 which incorporate our X-Phase system. And now, with the release of the XY-1 and XY-2E, even more venues and events can benefit from the performance of an XY Series sound system due to the horizontal-array deployment options offered by the new units.
The XY-1 consists of two 12-inch custom drivers in a hybrid dual-chamber configuration – exactly the same as the XY-3B, maintaining the chest-pumping low end of the flagship model.
The XY-2E is much more than an XY-2 in an enclosure. We’ve kept the X-phase system, but we’ve enabled individual control of the 8″ cone driver and 1-inch compression driver, which wasn’t previously possible.
These adaptable new additions to the XY Series can also be used as stage fills, for live PA and DJ booth monitoring, thanks to the tailor-made accessories that make them easy to deploy in tight spaces.
The XY-1 and XY-2E are both available from today. To buy or rent the speakers, contact your local installer or rental partner. Find out more about the new XY-1 and XY-2E.
To coincide with the release of the XY-1 and XY-2E, the company has also launched the new, refined Pioneer Pro Audio website. Containing all the same useful information as the former site, the new portal is much more intuitive to navigate, enabling venue owners, installers, engineers and other customers to quickly find what they need – from inspiration for their next sound system to technical specifications. The new site will be available with a choice of English or Japanese text initially, with more languages to follow soon.
