The CX1577 is a coaxial loudspeaker that provides the output capability and pattern control of a normal 2-way system in a much more compact enclosure. Its coaxial transducer and 75° x 75° horn provides effective coverage in situations where traditional 45° and 60° vertical patterns are too narrow. Its coverage pattern is particularly effective from an elevated position, and its vertically trapezoidal enclosure shape allows it to be mounted very close to ceilings with minimal effect on sight lines. Fulcrum Acoustic’s TQ™ processing is an integral part of the CX1577 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 CX1577 is particularly effective in systems where targeted pattern control is desirable, and is an excellent solution for high fidelity, foreground distributed systems. Its unique shape and compact size complements many architectural styles, which facilitates acceptance by interior designers and architects. This makes it the perfect choice for houses of worship, theaters, restaurants, transportation facilities, theme parks, and more.
