Bi-amped Line Array 1600W + 640W - 147 dB SPL (peak)
Meeting customer demand for a large-scale, powerful touring sound solution, FBT is proud to introduce the MYRA as its new flagship sound reinforcement system.
Combining precision sound quality with practical hardware and FBT’s characteristic Italian style, the MYRA system comprises the 214L mid/high line array and the 218S subwoofer. Both are the result of extensive consultation with the industry’s leading tour sound companies and an extensive, three year R&D program. Designed without compromise, the MYRA establishes a new reference for SPL to size ratio, directivity control, coherence, and ease of use.
At the heart of the 214L line array element is a new coaxial 4-inch voice coil mid-frequency and 2.5-inch voice coil high-frequency driver combination developed in cooperation with B&C, and covering the 400Hz to 20kHz range. Combined output from the compression drivers is loaded by a proprietary short path waveguide that ensures low distortion and controlled broadband directivity.
With extended frequency response down to 42Hz, which in most applications avoids the need for flown subwoofers, the 214L’s low frequency section employs uniquely sized B&C 14-inch high excursion drive units with 3-inch long excursion voice coils to maintain long throw projection of low frequencies with power and authority.
The cabinet construction typifies FBT’s signature ‘Made in Italy’ production philosophy – completely fabricated in-house using premium Baltic birch and tour-ready weather-resistant polyurea coating, the 214L is built for a life on the road. Audio crews will appreciate the intuitive four-point integrated rigging system which allows up to 20 cabinets to be flown quickly and easily in any venue with splay angle up to 8° in 1° increments.
The lowest octave of the MYRA system is seamlessly reproduced by the companion 218S, a reflex-loaded dual 18-inch subwoofer featuring custom-designed, very long excursion B&C drivers. Whether deployed in simple ground stacks or distributed cardioid sub arrays, the 218S delivers substantial low frequency energy down to 30Hz, thanks to the ingenious port arrangement which is designed to dramatically reduce turbulence and eliminate non-linearity.
As with the 214L mid/high enclosure, the 218S cabinet benefits from premium Baltic plywood construction and, to ensure long term road-worthiness and all-weather resistance, is protected by a durable polyurea coating. Trucking and handling are made easy by the eight comfortable, ergonomically placed rubber-gripped aluminium bar handles, along with removable heavy-duty casters.
The MYRA is making its international debut on booth C78 of Hall 8.0 at Prolight+Sound from April 2nd to April 5th 2019.
