NNNN Gage 30A
he Gage 30 is a highly versatile, high performance full range point source with an 18” woofer and a 1.4” compression driver.
2-way low distortion design
Gage 30 is a highly versatile, high performance full range point source.It’s designed with sound quality and high SPL capabilities in mind. The concept idea was to merge the nice performance features of a high end dual 15” + horn full range speaker (high SPL), a single 18” bass reflex subwoofer (bass extension) and a large format main monitor (low distortion and pin point audio reproduction). The woofer has a powerful new Neo motor system, low moving mass and extended linear Xmax. The HF horn is a classic elliptical design loaded with a wide range, low distortion and powerful 1.4” compression driver. A large expanding bass port ensures minimal nonlinear airflow at high SPL, even at peak power levels.
The combination of a low particle velocity expanding port, a fairly wide Q tuning, and several quarter wave reflectors strategically placed within the port itself, enables the unwanted pipe resonances and resonance decay, typically found in a truncated bass reflex box. For the main monitor and high end HiFi applications where the “port sound” in many setups is unwanted, we have designed a “resistive plug” so the Gage 30 will acoustically emulate and behave much like a significantly larger closed box.
Arrayable 30Hz versatility
Angled enclosure side walls and a smooth even dispersion pattern makes it easy to combine two or more boxes in a horizontal array with smooth transitions between boxes. The bass reproduction of Gage 30 enables it to be used standalone for smaller concert scenes or dance floors. In a studio, cinema, HiFi or home cinema environment the Gage 30 is a high SPL low distortion modern take on the 2-way reference loudspeaker capable of providing a pin point stereo image.
Low weight enclosure
The relative low weight of the loudspeaker compared to the high SPL and low frequency reproduction across its 60 x 50 degree dispersion field makes it a convenient and fast solution for touring applications, with or without additional subwoofer. Gage 30 is available in both active and passive versions.
