N-RAY is an ultra compact, 3-way line array that brings the benefits of the AiRAY technology into a shallow, lightweight cabinet for theatres, performing arts centres, and corporate events.
Incorporating the latest in driver and system design technology, this Next Generation product boasts twice the power handling of other systems, significantly increasing low frequency output and long term SPL capability. N-RAY delivers high-fidelity sound with a large dynamic range and extended low frequency, as well as incredible flexibility thanks to its variable horizontal dispersion. The speaker is ideally suited for a variety of small to medium size applications.
N-RAY is compact, lightweight, and delivers a crystal clarity unrivalled by other speakers of this size. CODA’s technological innovations mean the speaker is convenient and portable as well as sustainable, meaning less pollution, lower costs, and far less energy consumption. A friend of the earth, and a friend of the audiophile.
Dynamic Airflow Cooling (DAC).
Putting that immense amount of power into a compact enclosure required a new enclosure design and a new thermal concept. The N-RAY front baffle and vents are made of aluminium with all drivers mounted into it. The aluminium vents are optimised to maximise airflow increasing the thermal capacity of the system. Applying more power increases the airflow in the vents, conducting more heat away from the drivers and distributing that heat outside the enclosure. The patented DAC technology dramatically improves heat dissipation, doubling the power handling and the maximum sound pressure of the system.
Dual Diaphragm Planar Wave Driver (DDP) and Low Frequency Drivers
The system contains two 6.5″ ultra low distortion neodymium drivers and a patented 6″ DDP driver, while the SCN-F 15″ sensor controlled low frequency extension provides additional headroom with exceptional dynamic range and tight punch.
Offering a phase linearity similar to AiRAY, a 60 Hz – 22 kHz (-6 dB) frequency range and high power handling of 1000 W, N-RAY outputs a power, frequency and transient response that belies its small size.
N-RAY has a variable horizontal coverage of 90°, 120° or asymmetric 105°, variable vertical curving in 1° steps, and features an integrated three-point rigging system for flown or ground stacked arrays compatible with SCN-F – 15″ sensor controlled low frequency extension.
The line array facilitates system integration with LINUS loudspeaker management amplifiers. The N-RAY is equipped, as standard, with outdoor weather protection, making it sustainable for outdoor use, utilising a hybrid wooden and aluminium enclosure with polyurea coating to ensure rugged durability and exceptional water protection.
