TDController-R2
Key Features
• Precision circuits specifically engineered
for the PS8/LS400 systems permit
increased SPL and operational reliability.
• Servo-controlled VCEQs provide precise
dynamic control without spectral
imbalance.
• Two inputs and three outputs enable a
single PS8 TD to manage multiple PS8
and LS400 products.
• Comprehensive status indicators and
controls.
The PS8 TDController is an advanced analogue processor that allows the PS8 Loudspeaker and
optional LS400 Subwoofer to achieve superior performance from an exceptionally small format.
The PS8 TD provides crossover, sensed amplifier control and system equalization, optimised for
the PS8 and LS400. Each PS8 TD has two inputs and three outputs, L, R and summed sub out,
minimising installation cost and complexity.
Like all NEXO processors, the PS8 TD provides precision dynamic, voice coil temperature and diaphragm
displacement protection through the use of selective Voltage Controlled Equalisers (VCEQs), strategically
reducing levels only at frequencies when and where necessary.

PS8
Loudspeaker
Key Features
• High-power system (125dB Peak SPL @ 1m)
with new 8in LF and 1in HF low magnetic
emission Neodymium drivers for light weight
(7.5kg, 16.5lbs) and negligible magnetic
leakage.
• Rotatable, asymmetrical horn and unique
cabinet architecture ensure versatility; useradaptable 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
• Installed PA for clubs, A/V, theatre, broadcast,
Houses of Worship, theme parks, etc.
• High-quality, low-profile stage monitoring for
clubs, A/V, theatre, broadcast, etc.
• Near-field, down-fill and under-balcony systems
in support of larger systems.
The PS8 features advanced NEXO designed low
magnetic emission Neodymium drivers, making
the PS8 extremely light and compact while usable
next to magnetically-sensitive professional video
or computer equipment. The dispersion,
architecture and weight balance are designed to
provide uncompromised PA and stage monitor
performance from a single speaker, and
background and foreground music playback
applications are equally well-served.
Like the new PS10-R2 and PS15-R2, this flexibility
is realized by a proprietary constant directivity
asymmetrical dispersion horn, easily configurable
(by users) in four positions by 90° rotations.
Coupled with the horn’s unique progressive
horizontal (50° to 100°) and vertical (55°) dispersion,
the most suitable pattern can be selected for vertical
or horizontal PA usage or wedge monitoring. The
PS8’s 2-way passive 8Ω design employs a single
amplifier channel to deliver bi-amped performance,
reducing system cost, size and complexity, and a
new grille design increases durability while fully
accommodating use as a wedge.

Loudspeaker
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
