The What:Fulcrum Acoustic has launched its latest product line: CCX12 12-Inch Subcardioid Coaxial Loudspeakers. Joining the CCX1295 (90 degrees by 45 degrees) announced last summer, the line now features a full range of horn patterns allowing coverage to be tailored for a wide range of applications.

The What Else: The CCX12 product family includes the CCX1265 (60 degrees x 45 degrees), CCX1277 (75 degrees x 75 degrees), CCX1200 (100 degrees x 100 degrees), and CCX1226 (120 degrees x 60 degrees). This line marks the first application of Fulcrum's Passive Cardioid Technology in its TQ Install line of installation loudspeakers. CCX12 loudspeakers provide 9dB of low-frequency attenuation in the rear hemisphere without requiring additional cancellation drivers, amplifiers, or signal processing channels.

"Unlike conventional loudspeakers that trade off low-frequency (LF) directional control for compact enclosures, our Passive Cardioid Technology enables CCX12 loudspeakers to achieve unprecedented LF/HF control for products of their size," said Fulcrum Acoustic co-founder and vice president of R&D David Gunness. "Combining the benefits of this technology with Temporal Equalization (TQ), single-amplified CCX12 products deliver impressive LF directional control, improved intelligibility, enhanced sonic accuracy, and the output capability and pattern control of normal premium two-way systems in considerably lighter and more compact enclosures than those with offset drivers."

The Bottom Line: CCX12 subcardioid coaxial loudspeakers are particularly effective for high-fidelity foreground distributed systems, as well as for systems requiring targeted pattern control. Their trapezoidal shaped enclosures allow for mounting very close to ceilings with minimal effect on sight lines, which facilitates acceptance by interior designers and architects.
