Torrance, Calif. – Pioneer DJ, an AlphaTheta Corporation brand, has released the XPRS2 speaker series, which includes new active full-range loudspeakers and subwoofers for mobile DJs, live sound, rental and fixed installations.
The four new systems include the XPRS102 and XPRS122 full-range speakers and the XPRS1152S and XPRS1182S subwoofers. A breakdown follows:
XPRS2 Full-Range: XPRS102 & XPRS122
- Four DSP Modes
Both of the XPRS2 full-range speakers contain four different DSP preset modes—Live, Music, Speech and Floor Monitor—to address the needs of different listening environments.
- 16 Customizable User DSP Modes
In addition to the four presets, each XPRS2 full-range speaker includes 16 custom user DSP modes – which can be saved with different names – to ensure the EQ settings are maximized for every scenario.
- XPRS102 Full-Range Speaker Design
The XPRS102 pairs a 10-inch woofer and 2.5-inch voice coil with a 1-inch exit compression driver and 1.75-inch voice coil to deliver pristine audio performance. Complete with a maximum sound pressure level (SPL) of 130 dB and frequency response of 50 Hz–20 kHz, the XPRS102 full range speakers help ensure music and spoken-word reproduction is accurate and performs as intended.
- XPRS122 Full-Range Speaker Design
The XPRS122 is the larger full range speaker counterpart in Pioneer DJ’s XPRS2 Series. Featuring a 12-inch woofer and 3-inch voice coil with a 1-inch exit compression driver and 1.75-inch voice coil, the speakers deliver comprehensive sound coverage across mid to large audiences and venues. Boasting a frequency response of 48 Hz – 20 kHz and a maximum SPL of 132 dB, the versatile full range speaker delivers powerful sound built to thrive in even the harshest of sound environments such as a live DJ set.
XPRS2 Active Subs: XPRS1152S & XPRS1182S
- Three DSP Modes
Both of the XPRS2 subwoofers contain three different DSP preset modes—Boost, Extended LF, and Normal—to suit different listening environments.
- Accurate Audio Performance
The XPRS1152S employs a 15-inch ferrite woofer with a 3-inch voice coil with long excursion, while the larger XPRS1182S relies on an 18-inch ferrite woofer with a 3-inch voice coil with long excursion to produce low frequencies with paramount accuracy.
- Frequency Response
As with the XPRS2 full range speakers, the new XPRS2 subwoofers’ performance is apparent through both the frequency response and maximum SPL. With the XPRS1152S providing a frequency response of 45 Hz – 120 Hz and a maximum SPL of 133 dB, while the XPRS1182S offers a 40 Hz – 120 Hz frequency response and 136 dB maximum SPL; the subwoofers pack in the performance of a permanent install subwoofer with the compact mobility required by today’s mobile artists, performers, and venues.
AlphaTheta Corporation worked with audio expert Paul Bauman on the XPRS2 speaker’s system. With over 35 years of experience in sound design and engineering, Bauman’s knowledge played an important role in tuning the speaker’s systems to produce high-performance sound.
“The XPRS2 inherits the rich heritage and pedigree of Pioneer DJ technology that artists and venues trust, while integrating new innovative audio technologies to support the evolving needs of the industry,” said John Powell, President, AlphaTheta Music Americas. “The XPRS2 prioritizes full dynamic range and sonic clarity to deliver listeners a full, rich sound that stands up to anything a DJ might throw at the system, and we cannot wait to get the speakers in the hands of our dedicated community of artists and venues.”
