19th January 2015: Get the audience going with the XPRS Series of high-powered active speakers. The compact, portable, wooden enclosure XPRS Series combines Pioneer Pro Audio sound engineering heritage with the reliable, energy efficient power of Powersoft amps – to give you a versatile plug-and-play system that fills the room with a natural sound.
The XPRS Series comprises the XPRS15 and XPRS12 two-way full range speakers, and the XPRS215S dual 15-inch subwoofer. All three feature 15 mm birch plywood enclosures for a dynamic sound that works across all musical genres. The XPRS15/12 have a 15/12-inch ferrite LF driver, a 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver and Pioneer Pro Audio’s ‘AFAST technology’ to deliver a clear, clean sound with a deep bass range. Or you can enhance your sound using the four EQ modes with built-in DSP.
The XPRS215S is the perfect complement to enhance the low-end, thanks to its dual 15-inch neodymium drivers and a versatile crossover switch that lets you adjust the low pass filter cut-off at stages between 80 Hz and 150 Hz.
The Powersoft Class D amps deliver a massive 2400 W output, while Power Factor Correction (PFC) ensures energy efficiency and a reliable performance. With all that power, we’ve paid extra attention to protecting the amp and the speaker – pouring in thermal limiting, an input limiter, DC offset removal, AC mains protection and more. Plus the auto-ranging power supply detects and adapts to the voltage without compromising the sound quality, making the XPRS Series a reliable performer in any environment.
The road-ready XPRS Series is durable and easy to transport; we’ve placed the PA speakers’ handles to ensure the weight is distributed equally, while the sub comes with removable castors. The wedge-shaped XPRS15/12 can be placed on the floor and used as a foldback monitor for stage performances, or you can pole-mount it and choose between a 0-degree and 7-degree tilt to suit your set-up.
The speakers are enclosed in 15 mm birch plywood cabinets to deliver a natural, dynamic sound. Pioneer’s AFAST* technology drastically reduces standing waves that can produce a muffled response in the low to mid ranges. An acoustic tube in the cabinet absorbs just the standing waves, increasing the low frequency response.
The XPRS15/12 uses lightweight 15/12-inch ferrite LF drivers and 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm compression drivers, while the XPRS215S subwoofer packs in two 15-inch neodymium LF loaded drivers for a powerful bass.
Powersoft’s new Class D amp modules produce 2400 W (peak) or 1200 W (continuous) output, similar to that of larger club speaker amps. The amps are equipped with Power Factor Correction (PFC) to reduce power consumption while ensuring reliability and a steady performance in all environments.
The auto-ranging power supply means you plug in the XPRS Series anywhere in the world – including venues with generators or temporary power supplies – and expect the same high quality sound.
We’ve packed the speakers with features to protect the driver, amp and power supply – giving you peace of mind, consistent high quality sound, and extending the life of your sound system.
Plus the status LED on the front of the cabinet can has three settings – power, limiter or off – giving an optional visual reference to the status of the speaker.
Both speakers use a high-grade ferrite LF driver (15-inch/12-inch) and a 1.75-inch titanium diaphragm compression driver to reproduce a clean, full range sound with low distortion even at high outputs.
Buttons on the back of the speakers give you instant access to four EQ modes:
The speakers’ horn gives a dispersion of 90 x 60 degrees and can be rotated by 90 degrees – giving you flexibility to mount the speakers vertically or horizontally to choose the coverage to suit your space.
The XPRS15/12 speakers are wedge shaped, making them ideal floor monitors. Or the polemount socket can be set to straight or tilted to 7 degrees to direct the sound exactly where you want it.
The speakers have two balanced XLR/TRS combo sockets and an unbalanced RCA connection, so you can connect a MIC and other external devices at the same time – including using an AUX cable to connect and play directly from portable audio players, line-level mixers and tablets/smartphones. Each input can be controlled individually or using the master controls for lines one and two. Plus two balanced XLR through output terminals enable easy connection to other speakers and subs.
Two 15-inch neodymium LF drivers and a built-in horn shape deliver rich, powerful low frequencies.
The Crossover switch lets you quickly and easily adjust the cut-off frequency of the low pass filter, giving you a choice between 80Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz and 150Hz. And use the Phase switch to choose positive or negative polarity and prevent multiple subwoofers cancelling each other out.
The XPRS215S has two balanced XLR/TRS combo sockets so you can input a couple of devices at the same time. Two balanced XLR through output terminals enable easy connection to other speakers and subs.
The speakers’ durable, birch plywood enclosures are designed for the road, while castors on the sub and carefully placed handles on the PA speakers take the hard work out of transit and set-up.
