APPLICATIONS
The AX2065A Vertical Line Array element
is designed for a wide range of sound
reinforcement applications where a flexible
and easy to use vertical array systems is
needed.
THE AX2065A LINE ARRAY MODULE
The AX2065A is a new powered line array
element that combines superior sound
quality with easiness and flexibility in a
simple system with a very convenient priceto-performance ratio.
The AX2065A has been designed both for
rental live sound applications and for fixed
installations and has been engineered for the
simplest use possible but without sacrificing
anything in sound quality and performance.

TRANSDUCERS
The high frequency range is reproduced by a low-distortion
compression drive, equipped with very lightweight Titanium
diaphragm and a special new suspension design for very natural
sound. A transmission line wave-forming waveguide have been
used to load the HF driver, in order to provide a detailed and
natural sound and to achieve a long-distance HF projecting
capacity.
The two 6.5” woofers employed in the reproduction of the midbass range are equipped with very lightweight cones and rubber
suspension to extend the low frequency response. The lightness
of the diaphragm is furthermore improved by the use of aluminum
voice coil instead of conventional copper. This ensure a fast
reproduction of the mid range and mid-bass musical passages,
improving also the thermal capacity of the voice coil and, consequently, controlling the overall power compression. The two 6.5”
woofers are back loaded by a short hybrid transmission line that minimizes the effect of the box resonances and eliminates the
“boxy” mid-bass sound commonly obtained from regular bass-reflex enclosures, giving to this module a natural cardioid directivity
dispersion at the upper bass and mid low region.
SYSTEM CONCEPT AND SONIC PERFORMANCES
The AX2065A offers a simple but innovative design in line array elements. The simple concept of the WTW symmetrical design is
implemented in an effective way in order to minimize the effects of potential beaming phenomena around the crossover frequency.
In order to minimize these effects, many different details have been carefully engineered, the first of them being the choice of the
HF driver unit. The special light-weight diaphragm used in this driver features a very low mechanical resonance, thus allowing a
relatively low crossover frequency point that is placed in the 900Hz range.
Moreover, the orientation of the two woofers
allows to minimize the interference effect
between them, while the use of a mechanicalacoustic polyurethane filter represents a
further help in minimizing the midrange
beaming.
The crossover filter approach is based on a
“Constant Power” technique. Thanks to a
particular phase combination between the
two ways around the crossover frequency,
this approach is able to provide a very stable
horizontal coverage and a very stable offaxys sound image, also minimizing unwanted
effects around the crossover frequency. The
further application of phase linearization
techniques, combined to constant power
crossover, yield a linear phase response and
a coherent time response. This allows for a
natural perception of acoustic instruments
and voices and for an improved depth of the
sound image.

SIGNAL PROCESSING and POWER AMPLIFIERS
CORE
The system processing is based on the CORE DSP platform designed by the PROEL R&D Laboratories using one
of the most advanced SHARC DSP for audio application. It features 40bit, 96kHz floating point resolution and topquality 24bit AD/DA converters, for a perfect signal integrity, a dynamic range in excess of 110dB and a superior
sonic performance. Thanks to its massive processing power, the CORE platform is capable of providing the most
sophisticated algorithms for speaker processing, together with remote control and networking capability.
PROCESSED
CORE
The PRONET control software, working on a solid and reliable CANBUS based network protocol, provides an intuitive interface
for the remote control of the whole system, with the possibility of eqing, delaying, increasing the protections and monitoring the
status of the amplifier.
The AX2065A is powered by DA SERIES digital power modules, a new generation of CLASS D power amplifier
with digitally-controlled SMPS. The innovative technology used for these amplifiers (including also the use of a
PROCESSED
variable switching frequency) offers performances at the top of the range, such as a superior sound definition at
any audio frequency, very high dynamics also for low level signals and very low distortion even at the maximum
power The superior sound quality can be compared with top-of-the-range AB-class analog systems, while the
DA modules feature a higher dynamics, very compact size and light weight and efficiency above 90%.
DA
POWERED
AX2065A
The DA module employed for powering the AX2065A
delivers in an ultra-compact package a maximum
power of 2000W. Moreover, each AX2065A is able to
power an additional passive AX2065P module through
the available power output on the back panel. This
feature will allow to assemble very competitive system
solutions both for rental and installation applications.

HARDWARE
The AX2065A includes as an integral part of the cabinet
a built-in FLYING HARDWARE that provides an easy
and fast installation together with an excellent loadbearing capacity.
In addition, each module features on the bottom panel
a metal plate with a M20 thread for installing one or
more modules on standard speaker stand.
