The X310 beam forming array module combines a comprehensive package in all relevant disciplines without compromise. With the X310, even at most demanding and complex sound installations can be realized. The combination of mapping optimization and direct array definition is the most comprehensive and powerful loudspeaker management system on the market. The X310 is a self-powered 3-way high-end beam forming array loudspeaker, which features 3 x 10″ ported woofers for LF, 6 x 5″ woofers for the MF and 13 x 1″ compression drivers for the HF, which are mounted onto waveguide horns. The X310 can be used as single cabinet with programmable vertical dispersion (point source functionality) and as beamforming array for fixed installation as well as for mobile applications. If one X310 is combined with one X310-CARDIOID cabinet, the system will have cardioid dispersion for the LF range. The array is used as straight line in most applications as the coverage on listener areas is adjusted by beamforming. Due to the fully integrated connection hardware, the cabinet can be stacked to realize larger systems with up to 10 meters of acoustic length. With the small source distances, the beamforming capabilities of the column are excellent even at very high frequencies. Internally, one X310 has 22 amplifier and 22 DSP channels. The CADAC DSP-core module platform is integrated with the amplifier section into the loudspeaker. Cabinets are electrically connected by the CADAC C-Link audio and command interface. The CCP control and prediction software can connect to the array via LAN for command and control, Auto-EQ and to calculate sound prediction on listener areas. With the CMAP (mapping optimization mode), the vertical dispersion can be adjusted and optimized according to the listener area.
