The HOPS8 is a passive 2-way system with an exceptionally high output-to-size ratio and wide coverage of 100° x 100°.
The cabinet contains an 8”/1.75” coaxial driver and an additional 8” low frequency driver.
The advanced design aligns the acoustical centres of the transducers to produce a single point source. This unique loudspeaker technology provides a coherent wave front without hot spots. Precise directivity ensures uniform coverage with perfect time alignment between the components.
STATE OF THE ART DRIVERS
At the heart of the HOPS8 is the new developed 8”/1.75” coaxial driver. The 8” cone covers the 60 - 1.500 Hz range with high efficiency and smooth, linear response. Two aluminum shorting rings reduce inter-modulation distortion; minimize induction variation while reducing thermal compression. This design dramatically reduces the distortion at longer excursion levels, and improves the overall sound quality providing deep and punchy bass. The high frequency driver contains an ultra light 1.75” annular diaphragm providing exceptional transient response with very high efficiency from 1 kHz to 20 kHz. This new transducer was engineered to radiate a single source, coherent 100° wave front for superior dispersion control and high fidelity sound.
CONTROLLED DISPERSION AT HIGH SPL
In the low range both 8” drivers are overlapped increasing the maximum SPL of the system and providing an improved directivity control.
The HOPS8 is designed to work with dedicated Coda Audio LINUS5-C or LINUS10-C amplifiers as an integrated solution for DSP control, amplification, network remote control and diagnostics. The integrated solution ensures optimal performance and protection.
With two hardware options: HOPS8T for mobile applications and HOPS8i for permanent installations, the system is optimized for near field applications in small to medium venues where compact size, high output, superior dispersion control and high fidelity sound are required.
Ideal choice for corporate events, product presentations, exhibitions, small live reinforcement systems, DJs, small nightclubs, A/V rooms, stage monitor, front fill, under balconies and more.
