The Community Pro demo booth was full of new entries including M-Class Monitors. These come in new sizes including the MX8 and MX10 to join the existing MX12. These monitors offer a smoothly sloped appearance that departs from the old boxy wedge look on floor monitors. Also new for the show is the VLF Series of high performance subwoofers including the VLF208LV low profile dual 8-inch unit, the VLF115 single 15-inch with 1500 watts program power handling, the VLF118 that brings a single 18-inch woofer to the stage with 2000 watts program power capacity and the VLF218 that contains two 18-inch speakers and provides 4000 watts power handling. The company is also offering a tantalizing look at the new pendant speakers that will be available soon. A similar preview was on hand for the coming, low cost Commercial Design Series of ceiling speakers. The real treat was a glimpse of the new Forecaster HD software application that enables system designers to add speakers of any model, configure them for a specific space and get the needed power needs and acoustic information for venues with flat or sloped floors and unusual shapes. The demo of this free download application was fascinating and I could see that the demo guys were having fun just showing it off.
