Accelerated Life Test 2

The MK2300 Series of 2-way, high output, trapezoidal loudspeakers are designed as main PA for smaller venues, including houses of worship, auditoriums/theaters,A/V systems, hotel ballrooms, and meeting rooms. The Series is also ideal for distributed or fill purposes in larger venues, including houses of worship, auditorium/theaters, arenas, stadiums, nightclubs, and themed-entertainment complexes.

To meet the design goals for the intended applications, EAW engineers developed a new, high performance, 3-inch voice coil, compression driver mating it to a selection of six different HF horns with patterns from 60° x 45° to 120° x 60°. The horns are as large as the enclosure size allowstomaintainconsistentdirectivitythroughouttheHFpassband.A3inch voice coil, 12 inch LF driver, was designed to complement the sonic character and output of the HF driver. All MK2300 models are carefully voiced to sound similar, permitting diverse horn patterns to be mixed throughout an installation while maintaining the same sonic quality. The results are cleaner, usable, high-fidelity output to significantly higher levels than is normally expected from loudspeakers of this size and price.

Single-amp and bi-amp operating modes are user-selectable. In singleamp mode, the beamwidth-matching passive crossover is designed for even power response through crossover, low power losses, and high power handling. In bi-amp mode a digital signal processor (DSP) is required, providing sophisticated processing to maximize performance.

Foam-backed grilles hide the drivers from view for pleasing aesthetics. Thirteen mounting points allow enclosures to be mounted in virtually any configuration.Additional mounting points mate with OmniMount® 120.0 Series or similar brackets. Standard colors are black and white. Other colors can be specified as a special order items.

The MK2300 are the smaller companions to the MK5300 Series loudspeakers. Enclosures for both series are the same height facilitating installation where more than one horn pattern and/or type of loudspeaker capability is needed. Six Year Warranty.
