Production Audio now shipping the EAW MW 15

This new member of the EAW family of speakers is certainly going to be well recieved. The wedge is a nice clean looking, low profile wedge sutaible for events ranging from sorparate to full concerts.

To quote the Production Audio Newsletter “The EAW MicroWedge MW15 is collaboration between original MicroWedge Series inventor Dave “Rat” Levine (owner of Rat Sound Systems, Inc.) and the EAW Engineering Department, resulting in dramatically upgraded performance and ergonomics. The coaxial design pairs a 15-inch woofer with a 3-inch (diaphragm) HF compression driver on a horn that provides full yet controlled 90-degree horizontal dispersion. The large port on the front of the cabinet enhances LF response in coupling with the floor, and it houses both the carrying handle and the passive/active mode switch. The port also contains dual input connectors. Integral rigging hardware mounted on the enclosure bottom facilitates easy flying.”

I am certainly looking forward to using this new monitor in the near future.
