Waldbüttelbrunn, February 10th, 2015: A lot of hybrid effect devices are cavortingon the market. So far, these have been combinations of acceptable single effects, which made a satisfactory mixture. Now, these effects impress like never before, as their fine tuningis better than ever – and especially the integrated lasers are really convincing.

Just on time prior to the Prolight+Sound 2015, Eurolite now brings three effect devices on the market, which combine well-established LED effects with a laser class M2. That not only saves installation time, but provides perfect use of space – and a colorful light show of course, even at small events.

Choice of three models

You have the choice betweena KLS, a hybrid flower effect and an LED bar. If you know the KLS from Eurolite, you can guess that there’s more hidden in a KLS with integrated laser this representative of the family offers a nearly complete club lighting on one bar: Two derby effects, four strobes and two slim spots share the bar with the laser. The KLS comes pre-assembled in a transport bag.

Almost as well equipped is the FE-1500 Hybrid Laser Flower. The classic flower effect has been fitted with 8 strobe LEDs and a laser and now appears as acolorful bouquet of lights.

The third effect is the LED Laser Bar, offering190 LEDs. Located inthe center of the color changing bar is alaser with the colors red and green.

All three effects can be controlled by DMX. The LED Laser Bar additionally featuresan infrared remote control – the KLS even comes with aremote control and wireless foot switch.

Saving time and space

All three devices can be installed quickly and bring aparty mood even into the smallest locations. This makes them the perfect devices for small rooms as well as for mobile DJs and solo entertainers.

The effects can be seen at the Prolight+Sound 2015 atthe booth of Steinigke Showtechnic (hall 11.0. booth A17).

Overview on subwoofer types

The human ear is mainly adapted to the frequency range where speech is transmitted. Frequencies below this frequency range are less noted although the same physical level is present. In practice, this effect requires higher bass power e. g. by more powerful subwoofers, more subs or a mixture of both. As speakers generally have a low efficiency comparable to a halogen lamp, manufacturers try to achieve the highest efficiency by optimized housing shapes. But not every housing shape is suitable for every event location and audience. The following article should help to find the suitable subwoofer type.

1. Introduction

The loudspeaker celebrates its 150th anniversary based on the invention of the telephone by Philipp Reis in the year 1861. Already in the year 1878, the electro-dynamic loudspeaker was patented. This kind of loudspeaker is still built into most speaker-systems today.

If such a loudspeaker is operated without housing, an acoustic short-circuit is produced because the sound waves produced by both membrane sides are eliminated by each other. The volume is clearly reduced, especially the lower frequencies. A pragmatic use is not possible like this so that diverse types of loudspeaker housings for different applications were developed.
