THE POWERPRO II
The PowerMAX series of innovative
speaker systems from ARX raises the
concept of processor controlled speaker systems to a new level.
Designed to fit your installation as
well as your budget, the PowerMAX
line features ultra efficient designs that
install easily and neatly into any venue,
yet deliver performance you'd expect
from much larger speaker systems.
The PowerMAX 2 is a quantum
leap forward in compact, powerful
sound reinforcement. It is a 2 way speaker system in an all plywood trapezoidal
cabinet, featuring an ARX Pro Series 15"
(380mm) bass driver for maximum low
end response.
The all-new ARX extended range,
large diaphragm compression driver
handles high frequencies, coupled to a
Noryl resin CD horn flare for increased
efficiency.
Angled sides on the PowerMAX 2 lets
you easily assemble curved arrays
The PowerMAX 4 is a stage monitor
based on the PowerMAX 2. It features
frequency management tailored to the
critical vocal range, with all the power
to really cut through on stage.
Its rugged all plywood, multi profile design has the flexibility to handle
the most demanding stage monitoring
requirements, from vocal monitors to
sidefill
All PowerMax speakers are controlled by the PowerPRO II speaker
processor, a unique multi channel control unit that supplies EQ trim, phase
correction, sub crossover, and fail safe
speaker protection to keep the PowerMAX sound happening, day after day,
night after night.

The second generation dual
channel ARX PowerPRO II ISC
speaker processor is the heart
of the PowerMAX system.
ISC TM (Interactive System
Control) is our innovative
speaker protection circuitry.
Extra leads run from the amplifier outputs back into the
PowerPRO II, so it can constantly monitor the amount of
power the amplifier is delivering to the speakers.
Since the PowerPRO II is factory calibrated for the PowerMAX series, it knows the
speaker's exact Safe Operating Area (SOA). If it senses
that the amplifier power is
about to exceed the SOA, it
automatically triggers the system protection circuits to hold
the level momentarily at the
loudest safe setting until the
power peak has passed.
The PowerPRO II is placed
last in the system chain before
the power amps, usually in the
amp rack. Once it has beenconnected up correctly, it
needs no readjusting. Just set
it and forget it - the PowerPRO II looks after the rest!
