S 1296

The SONUS-1296 is a two-way, ruggedly built full-range loudspeaker system, designed for portable applications.

Compact, but extremely powerful, the SONUS-1296 handles applications ranging from clubs and AV presentations, to rock and roll performances.

Its multi-angle design allows it to function equally well as a Stage Monitor or a Front of House system. As a stage monitor, the performer has a choice of 90º, 125º and 145º angles of inclination from the stage floor. When used as a FOH system, the enclosure may be flown from its M10 threaded rigging points, supported on a stand, or ground supported.

Utilising advanced technologies normally found only in high priced touring systems, the SONUS-1296 provides extended high frequency response, low distortion output, and precise pattern control.

Featuring carefully designed crossovers that provide flat acoustic power response throughout the critical midrange region, and Community's exclusive DYNA-TECH dynamic driver protection circuitry, the SONUS-1296 is a versatile performer well suited for use by professional audio rental companies, touring musicians, and others requiring high quality sound reinforcement at an affordable price.
