Flare Audio is once again demonstrating just how far it can push the boundaries of sound, with its brand new XO system.
The production of Breakfast at Tiffanys, starring Pixie Lott, is adapted by playwright Richard Greenberg and directed by Nikolai Foster. It is a stage play with music, featuring sound design by veteran Mic Pool.
Flare Audio's tiny tourable XO line column system debuts here, delivering high quality and SPL in a variable length line column format.
The superior vocal clarity of the XO, coupled with its small size (129mm x 150mm x 78mm) and flexible bracketry allows for maximum sound design flexibility. The XO can be used on its own as a delay or low-level installation speaker, or can be arrayed in a Vertical Point Source.

"We do use quite a lot FaitalPRO products and in particular the 12FH520 which sounds particularly nice and also using the FD371 compression driver. A recent system called Annex System was launched at last BPM event. The bullet drivers are the FaitalPRO FD371. The Annex upper bass boxes also use FaitalPRO subwoofer. I particularly like the sound of FaitalPRO speakers especially sub bass, mid bass and upper bass and the selection of drivers that is available. We had a lot of positive feedback for these products last year and we have been using FaitalPRO speakers in systems used mainly in night clubs; so a lot of expectations for the future."
Andrew Richardson AREA / OEM SALES Pro-Audio Division FaitalPRO, says: "The industry we operate in tends to be geared towards high throughput rather than individuality, so at FaitalPRO we give our professional loudspeakers major character and tonality, as well as class leading longevity.
