EAW Expands MKD Series of Installation Loudspeakers

FOH Staff • New Gear • November 16, 2020

Eastern Acoustic Works (EAW)’s MKD1200 Series extend the company’s MKD Series of full range loudspeakers created for installation applications.

More details from EAW (www.eaw.com):

The MKD1294 and MKD1264 are three-way designs engineered to produce high output levels and outstanding fidelity while maintaining broadband pattern control for use in applications ranging from stadiums to small music venues.

Both models incorporate dual 12-inch low-frequency transducers with 3-inch vented voice coils, and coaxial 3.5-inch voice coil midrange and 1.75-inch voice coil high-frequency compression drivers. Nominal beamwidth of the MKD1294 is 90º horizontal x 45º vertical, while that of the MKD1264 is 60º horizontal x 45º vertical. The large-format horn utilized in the MKD1294 and MKD1264 may be rotated for increased versatility in pattern control, providing sound system integrators with a wide variety of installation options.

“The MKD Series takes concepts from our highly successful QX and MK Series, and applies them to new dual-woofer designs,” states TJ Smith, president of EAW. “We’ve developed new transducers that can be driven an octave lower than standard drivers through use of our Beamwidth Matched Crossover technology. Using this approach, we’re able to increase low-frequency output by as much as 6 dB while notably improving beamwidth along the axis of the dual woofers.”
