The Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. Professional Sound and Visual Division (Pioneer DJ) today introduced new professional audio speakers, the GS-WAVE and XY series, designed for commercial, nightclub, restaurant, bar and lounge applications. The stackable GS-WAVE series speaker system utilizes a subwoofer enclosure with dual 18-inch subwoofers, dual 15-inch back-loaded bass enclosure, twin acoustic lens and horn-loaded compression drivers, and an omni-directional super tweeter pod to deliver massive and extremely powerful sound with exceptional detail into large or extra-large club-type room environments. As a separate or complementary offering to the GS-WAVE system, Pioneer offers the XY series designed for smaller venues such as lounges and bars, composed of an 18-inch subwoofer, quasi-bandpass enclosure with two 15-inch subwoofers, and two full-range speakers with a choice of 12-inch woofer and 1.4-inch compression driver or 8-inch woofer with 1-inch compression driver.
“Behind the DJ booth, Pioneer is well known for its highly advanced electronic products and our goal with these new professional speakers is to provide a fully immersive Pioneer club-going experience,” said Maury Dent, director of product planning, Professional Sound and Visual Division for Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “We’re working with well-known companies such as Gary Stewart Audio and Powersoft with the goal of providing the absolute best sound quality output that can be delivered in large venues such as nightclubs and bars.”
With the assistance of Gary Stewart Audio™, known for designing nightclub speakers for more than 45 years, Pioneer developed the GS-WAVE as a “stacked” dance floor speaker system utilizing three sets of component speakers and a hanging tweeter pod. The GS-WAVE series delivers deep, warm sound with high-impact and crystal clear high frequencies established using a stackable system, which is preferred by most nightclub audio technicians.
Pioneer’s XY Series is designed for use as PA/monitor speakers. The compact speakers are ideal for near-field monitoring to deliver high quality audio both to a room full of listeners and to the DJ performer. The system is composed of four components that include:
Powersoft™ K-series Amplifiers
To power both speaker systems, Pioneer recommends the use of Powersoft’s K6DSP, K3DSP and the K2DSP K-series amplifiers for their sound quality, high output performance and power efficiency. All three models are preset with data specifically for the Pioneer loudspeaker models and can produce excessive power of up to 3600 Watts X 2. Each amplifier also includes DSP options, 40-bit processors with 96kHz sampling, fully protected circuitry and load impedance measurements.
