Titanium 50mm diaphragm, 1.4" exit compression driver
This unit features a larger magnet, increased power handling and a 1.4" (35mm) throat exit, allowing a lower crossover frequency to be used, resulting in smoother, more controlled HF and therefore better vocals.
Large magnet structures and tight construction tolerances give accuracy, high efficiency and reliability.
Large wave guide elliptical horn:
The benefits of this elliptical Wave Guide, featured in all the LX & LX-E series full range models, is that compared to conventional rectangular horns, the elliptical Wave Guide offers superior control over HF coverage, with reduced distortion, greater output and smoother frequency response.
The elliptical shape of the horn means that there are no corners or parallel surfaces to distort, diffract or reflect the sound – therefore the output is smoother, cleaner and more consistent, again resulting in a superior vocal sound.
Large Wave Guide elliptical horn provides superior control over HF coverage.
Custom cast frame woofers:
The woofers have been designed and built specifically for the LX & LX-E enclosures – they are not old designs housed in new cabinets.The increased power handling and durability of the LX & LX-E are due to the new drivers featuring larger voice coils with extended excursion capability coupled with a new aluminium cast frame.
ProTech™ Driver Overload Protection System
Understanding that sound systems are often asked to perform beyond their original design parameters, we have designed a smooth, progressive dynamic limiter/protection system that is carefully tailored to each model. Overloads are limited and drivers are protected against long term transient or peak conditions.The ProTech™ system progressively converts excess power to heat and triggers a reduction in power to the HF drive. When the overload condition is removed the system returns seamlessly to normal operation.
Sophisticated Crossovers Design
Each crossover in the LX and LX-E Series is built using the highest quality components and designed specifically for that system, enabling smooth power and frequency response control through crossover region. The LX-15B and LX-18B feature integral two-way networks that allow a four-box system to be powered by one amplifier.
Trapezoidal, Plywood and Composite Construction
The LX-E's cabinet is constructed from plywood on all critical surfaces (where durability is important) and wood composite where resonances need to be kept to a minimum. The trapezoidal shape further improves sonic accuracy by significantly reducing internal flutter echoes and standing wave resonances that are often apparent in rectangular shape cabinets.
Trapezoidal designs allow more compact arrays and sonic accuracy.
For maximum flexibility when installing, we have designed two specific models which feature 12 x M10 rigging points allowing the cabinets to be flown or arrayed. The LX-12E and LX-15E are fitted with these flying inserts.
LX-15E fly wave rigging points
The LX are all finished using a tough, black industrial carpet offering exceptional protection and durability for life on the road. The LX-E is coated with Duraguard™, an abrasion resistant paint that creates a protective 'skin' around the cabinet. Both finishes contribute to the overall safety in the set up and use.

Strong Grille, Square Handles and Castors
In order to provide maximum protection to the internal components of the loudspeakers, the front grilles are full steel with 1.5mm thick. The square handles design allows the cabinets to be gripped securely and comfortably, therefore making them easy to move. Built-in castors are available on some larger units for ease of transportation.
