The FX896 is a portable, coaxial stage monitor that provides the output capability and pattern control of a normal 2-way loudspeaker in a significantly more compact enclosure. Its neodymium coaxial transducer and 90° x 60° horn provide broad coverage, and its 1.7 inch compression driver assures robust high frequency headroom. Its multi-faceted enclosure includes 45° and 60° angles for short and medium distances. For longer distances a 15° angle may be achieved by placing the enclosure on its side. In all cases the coaxial transducer may be rotated to provide appropriate coverage angles.
Fulcrum Acoustic’s TQ™ processing is an integral part of the FX896 design. Sound, innovative acoustical design combined with state of the art digital processing leads to exceptional clarity and precise transient response, even at very high sound pressure levels. The required digital signal processing can be provided by one of many supported platforms.
The FX896’s unique TQPassive™ internal crossover is designed to work in conjunction with TQ™ processing. It provides high efficiency, excellent damping, and precise directional control normally associated with bi-amplified operation, but it does not require a second amplifier and processor channel. There are no resistive components in the crossover to heat up, so its response remains consistent even at high levels.
The clarity and source separation provided by the FX896 allows performers to clearly distinguish their own voice in the midst of many others; a capability which not only helps the performers, but makes monitor mixing easier and less critical. In addition, its unique shape and compact size makes it unusually unobtrusive on stage, and non-distracting on camera. These qualities make it an ideal choice for houses of worship, theaters, performing arts centers, and more.
