UXA/UX Series

Welcome to EAW’s range of advanced digital processors and amplifiers. Tools that integrate processing and acoustics in revolutionary ways to deliver prediction, control, monitoring and superior acoustical performance.

Software meets hardware

The UXA/UX Series brings together software and hardware in perfect harmony. Compatible across the range of EAW loudspeaker systems, the UXA/UX Series of processors and amplifiers puts you in control, enabling you to audition, refine and deliver the best possible sound quality from EAW’s advanced speaker systems.

The key to this power lies in industry leading digital processing. EAW’s proprietary algorithms integrate processing and acoustics in revolutionary ways to deliver optimum system performance. Integrated with the EAW Resolution 2.7™ software application (see below) the UXA/UX Series gives you full control, the ability to intuitively and speedily adjust your setup to peak performance.

All this is contained in a compact rackmount electronics package suited to both installed and production sound. The front panels give you access to quick setup functions while our Resolution software delivers advanced predictability/control and the ability to closely monitor all facets of the sound output.

EAW Core Technologies are the foundation of our products and design.

Core technologies featured in the Redline RL Series include:

DynO

Dynamic Optimization actively tracks input spectrum and power delivery, continually maximizing output and fidelity at any drive level.

FOCUSING

Use of advanced digital signal processing to perfect impulse response of a loudspeaker in the time domain. Eliminating horn “honk” and splashiness, the loudspeaker sounds more like a studio monitor than a “PA” speaker.

BEAMWIDTH MATCHED CROSSOVERS

Introduced over a decade ago for our MK series loudspeakers, EAW Engineers use carefully-designed HF horns and crossovers to eliminate polar irregularities through the crossover point.

Greybox technology

Greybox technology is at the heart of the processing power that delivers control and power through the UXA/UX Series. A Greybox is an electronic file that includes everything you need to get optimal performance from an EAW loudspeaker.

The name derives from the inputs that go to make-up the file. The ‘White’ component is the user input – what the user requires. The ‘Black’ component is EAW-provided data and is locked down. Mix the two together and you get the ‘Grey’ in Greybox.

The file includes:

  • Crossover settings
  • Focusing – advanced digital signal processing is used to perfect impulse response of a loudspeaker in the time domain. This eliminates horn “honk” and splashiness, creating a sound more like a studio monitor than a “PA” speaker
  • DynO – (where applicable) and limiters. Dynamic Optimization actively tracks input spectrum and power delivery, continually maximizing output and fidelity at any drive level.
  • Easy configuration

Focusing – Cleaner sound, easily achieved

On the left we have two slides. On slide one we have two graphs. Both are spectrograms, graphs showing frequency (up and down), time (left to right) and level (color, red is hotter).

In an ideal world we want a straight, thin line. This represents a perfect impulse response. However what we usually get with loudspeakers is time smear from midrange (reflections off of surrounds of midrange cone) as indicated in the top graph. In the bottom graph we get reflections from throw of horn-loaded compression driver.

Click on the forward arrow to the second slide and you will see the processed response graph (spectrogram). The graph is now clean with no artifacts. The processing has also corrected the phase (straightness of the line) so it is close to perfect.

DynO – achieve max

DynO, or Dynamic Optimization, maximizes the output of every passband. This tangibly increases output over what would otherwise be possible.

DynO ensures that setup is extremely easy – just enter simple amplifier information and you’re done.

The Greybox will automatically apply the correct limiting and gain adjustments given the amplifier information you’ve provided.

Software tools

Every EAW product series works seamlessly with our array of software applications designed to make installation easier and sound optimisation a more exact science.

EAW Resolution™, for example, is a powerful and easy-to-use simulation software that accurately predicts the performance of multiple arrays within a venue. Driven by EAW’s proprietary F-Chart acoustics modeling software, Resolution is more accurate and powerful than previous generations of software by utilizing measured 3D acoustic data.

Output levels are displayed by varying color using a variety of methods, including 1/3-octave and broadband SPL, A and C weighted. The actual frequency response at any point in a venue can also be viewed. User-defined environmental conditions, specifically temperature and humidity, are factored into these calculations.

EAW’s proprietary Resolution modeling software allows you to accurately predict performance and optimise multiple arrays.
