NEXO PS R2 Series Systems
First we set the standard.
Now we’re raising the bar.
For more than 15 years, the NEXO PS Series has set the standard for compact, high-output loudspeakers.
Now NEXO is raising the bar. The new PS R2 Series builds upon the groundbreaking performance of its predecessor
with even more power and bandwidth, greater versatility and better value in both installed sound and touring applications.
More
Power and bandwidth
More than 200,000 NEXO PS Series speakers are already hard at work around the world in applications where compact,
high-output, linear response loudspeakers are required. Now the new PS R2 Series delivers as much as a 5dB higher
sound pressure levels from a range comprising three scalable systems, all of which can be quickly and easily configured
for main PA use, for use as floor monitors, or flown vertically or horizontally in installations or for use as side/rear fills.
The PS R2 Series offers the user a totally integrated loudspeaker solution, in which innovative transducer, waveguide
and enclosure designs come together under the control of strategic equalisation from new, dedicated TD Controllers to
ensure extended bandwidth and sound pressure levels, along with a high degree of speaker protection.

NEXO PS R2 Series Systems
Greater
Versatility
Central to the advanced performance of the PS R2 Series is NEXO’s Asymmetrical Dispersion Constant Directivity horn design. Quick and easy
for the user to rotate, it focusses more of the output of the loudspeaker on the audience (or performer when used as a monitor), greatly
increasing the versatility of the system without compromising its performance in any given application.
4
The Asymmetrical Advantage
A satisfactory audience experience often necessitates a compromise
between the wide, short throw coverage required by listeners closest to
the stage, and the narrow, long throw coverage required by those at the
back of the venue. Similarly, coverage from monitors must be wider
when the performer is closer to the speaker, and narrower when further
away. The asymmetrical horns used in all PS R2 Series speakers are
engineered such that the vertical coverage is narrower above horn axis
Front-of house configuration
than below. A few minutes is all it takes to remove the grille, unscrew
the horn and rotate it to ensure optimum directivity in every application.
When used as the main PA, PS R2 systems significantly reduce the
amount of ambient, reverberant energy caused when loudspeakers
misdirect their output towards walls and ceilings. And in monitor mode,
more of the output can be focussed on the performer.

In conventional Front Of House configuration, a PS R2 Series loudspeaker
yields 50° horizontal coverage at 25° above the centre line. Rotating the horn
expands this to 100° at 50° below the centre line, such that coverage narrows.
In stage monitor mode, a PS R2 Series loudspeaker yields 100°
horizontal coverage at 30° above the centre line, narrowing to 50°
horizontal coverage at 25° below the centre line for use when the
performers are further away.
A sticker on the wide dispersion side of the horn indicates the correct orientation for FOH and wedge monitoring applications. The arrow on the sticker indicates
the ‘wide side’ of PS horn dispersion. Users simply need to position the arrow such that it points in the direction requiring widest coverage, and away from the
direction requiring narrowest coverage.

The versatility of PS R2 Series loudspeakers is enhanced yet further by a full range of rigging and flying hardware
(see pages 20/21) – the development of which benefits from NEXO’s 30 years of experience in touring sound systems.
And system installers will discover a similarly comprehensive range of mountings for permanent installation.
In fixed installations, analogue controllers ensure accurate reproduction at high output levels, while mobile sound
operators may choose to use NEXO powered TDControllers (see page 22), with their enlarged library of presets for
instant access to popular configurations.

A better
Investment
PS Series loudspeakers have a hard-earned reputation for performance and reliability, with countless examples performing night-in, night-out, for
more than a decade, without a single problem. Built in NEXO’s new, state-of-the-art production facility in France and engineered from the outset
for a long, trouble-free life, the new PS R2 Series is set to enhance this reputation yet further through a combination of even more exacting
manufacturing standards and advanced driver protection technology.

• 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.

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

The PS8 TDController is precisely matched to the PS8 & LS400 cabinets and includes sophisticated protection systems. Using PS8 & LS400 without a properly connected PS8TD will result in poor
sound quality and can damage the components. PS8 & LS400 can also be used with NXAMP4x1 and NXAMP4x4 Powered TDControllers.
After dismounting the front grille from its fixings, the HF Horn can be rotated in 4 positions for dispersion configuration.
The PS8 can be used without optional LS400 Sub-bass. Active two-way operation with the LS400 is included in the PS8TD. One LS400 matches 2 x PS8, additional LS400 may be used for enhanced
LF capability.
PS8 are wired 2- & 2+ on Speakon connectors, LS400 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 PS8
& 1 x LS400 in no particular order.
As part of a policy of continual improvement, NEXO reserves the right to change specifications without notice.

Architectural and Engineering Specifications
RS15-SUB Sub-Bass
Extending the usable range of the PS15-R2 Loudspeaker to 35Hz, the RS15 is the first offering of
NEXO’s patent pending RAY SUB Technology. The RAY SUB Technology is based on optimizing
positioning and phase relationships of radiating surfaces in vented enclosures, permitting acoustic
distance from rear to front sections to always increase as frequency decreases; consequently rear
and front sections sum up efficiently over the entire subwoofer bandwidth, allowing for an average
of 5db gain from the rear section in the forward direction and cancelling in the rear direction.
Utilized in a stand alone format, RAY SUB Technology, allows the same cabinet to be configured for any
polar pattern, omni-directional as a standard direct radiating subwoofer when speakers are facing the
audience, or highly directional when a speaker cabinet is rotated sideways or upwards. With arrays, RAY
SUB subwoofers can be set back to back, front to front, alternate, in vertical columns, and when column
length is sufficient be beam-steered upwards or downwards. Comprised of a 15 inch transducer with a
frequency response of 35Hz – 200Hz in omni or 35Hz- 150Hz in directional mode and a sensitivity of
105db SPL, the RS15 presents an unchallenged versatility for installations and touring requirements.
