Data Sheet
Key Features
• High-power system (132dB Peak SPL@1m)
with 10in LF and 1in HF drivers.
• Rotatable asymmetrical horn and unique
cabinet architecture ensure versatility.
• User-adaptable for both PA and stage
monitoring applications.
• Two-way passive 8Ω design uses a single
amplifier channel for simpler installation and
lower cost.
• Sophisticated control electronics ensure
reliable, linear operation.
• Supported with a full range of mounting and
flying accessories.
System Applications
• Touring, installed PA for clubs, A/V, theatre,
broadcast, Houses of Worship, etc. High-quality
stage monitoring for cabarets A/V, theatre,
broadcast, etc.
• Fill-in system for use with larger NEXO
PS/Alpha systems, or any application needing
exceptional side, down and near-field
A high power system capable of producing 132 dB
Peak SPL, the new PS10-R2 Loudspeaker can be
safely driven with up to 1250 Watts of amplifier
power. Controlled by the new, dedicated PS10
TDController-R2, or the NXAMP Powered Controller,
the PS10-R2 achieves high SPLs and wide bandwidth
performance, despite being only half the weight and
volume of common trapezoidal loudspeaker systems.
Along with the flexible coverage patterns enabled by
NEXO’s proprietary constant directivity asymmetrical
dispersion horn, the architecture and weight balance
of the PS10-R2 are designed to provide both
uncompromised PA and stage monitor performance
from a single speaker. Left and Right versions of the
PS10-R2 have been developed to provide a true
stereo image – particularly important for wedge
applications. The 2-way passive 8Ω design uses a
single amplifier channel to deliver bi-amped
performance, reducing system cost, size and
complexity, while the new cabinet design incorporates
a pole mount and a new hardware adapter compatible
with a vast array of touring and fixed installation

Dispersion configuration
Speaker Cables
The PS10 TDController-R2 is precisely matched to the PS10-R2 & LS600 cabinets and includes sophisticated
protection systems. Using PS10-R2 & LS600 without a properly connected PS10 TDController-R2 will result in
poor sound quality and can damage the components.
After dismounting front grill from its fixings, the HF Horn can be rotated in 4 positions for dispersion configuration.
The PS10-R2 can be used without optional LS600 Sub-Bass. Active two-way operation with the LS600 is
included in the PS10 TDController-R2. One LS600 matches 2 x PS10-R2, additional LS600 may be used for
enhanced LF capability.
PS10-R2 are wired 2- & 2+ on Speakon connectors, LS600 on 1- & 1+. Loop through Speakons are present
on both. Single identical cables can thus be used to loop through combinations of up to 2 x PS10-R2 & 1 x
LS600 in no particular order.
Shipping Weight & Volume
PS10-R2 is packaged as a single product.
17.3 kg (38 lbs) / 0.169 cubic metres (5.96 cubic feet).
A full selection of mounting Accessories is available, please contact your Nexo Agent for details.
As part of a policy of continual improvement, NEXO reserves the right to change specifications without notice.
