Flare Audio reveals Quadhorn models

The Quadhorn Q12 (grille not shown)

2 October 2012

UK - Specialist audio manufacturer Flare Audio has released compact versions of its Quadhorn bass enclosures, to meet demand from small to mid-sized venues, touring artists and recording studios. The Q12 and Q15 use the same principles of Waveform Integrity and Flare Audio's Nanoflow technology that earned the Q18, the original Quadhorn, success with clients including Secret Garden Party, Shakedown Festival, Leopallooza and Coca-Cola.

The new product additions offer a compact double 15" or 12" bass enclosure consisting of two custom neodymium drivers loaded using Nanoflow technology. Constructed from birch ply and press formed for increased strength, the bass systems have been designed with tourability and a small installation footprint in mind, while a choice of different finishes make them equally suitable for the studio or live setting. All models can be used in conjunction with Flare's high pack product range, Triwave, which combines point source, line source and line array technologies, or the V Series compact speakers.

"The demand for a smaller version of the Q18 was overwhelming," says Davies Roberts, Flare Audio founder. "By reducing it in size, we've widened the market for Quadhorn, making it available to small and mid-sized venues, professional and semi-professional musicians and studios. We have been able to go smaller without any change in audio quality. The physics of our system means it's accurate and powerful, irrespective of scale."

Flare Audio recently announced the decision to focus its business on loudspeaker development and manufacture. It continues to invite potential new distribution and rental partners to discuss shared business opportunities.
