Can't wait for this. Is the pendulum swinging?

Points about scalability and versatility are well taken.

I was expecting something new in the larger format from them.

Sounds very practical and clever. Not unlike most of their other products.

Looks like the 'new Alpha' and the 'new Geo' could be the same rig... Even if it isn't the same as either.

NEXO is speaking to profitability via modularity.  It's about time someone offered a unique value proposition. For companies which need to scale from street festivals, corporates and one-offs to local shed or arena dates, this is an intriguing system.

I liked this part:  "Its concept combines the best of NEXO Alpha functionality with the technical innovation of NEXO GEO waveguide designs to deliver a system that is both super-powerful, super-flexible and easy to use, and might actually make its owners some money! "

Emphasis added.  YMMV, no animals were harmed...

With the limited information i know about this..  This is a BIG rig.  It should have more total output than anything currently on the market.  To me the question will be if you have the same controllability that the line arrays in general do.  However, whether people agree or not, the big 15" or larger line arrays have "flaws".  I know this is why NEXO generally stays away from the big drivers, especially in top boxes.  If there is software to control the angles, and a way to steer the array, this could be a great alternative for companies...

Agreed, looking forward to it!

Louis,

Can you elaborate on these "flaws"?

That is a long conversation Eytan.  There was a brilliant PowerPoint i saw that clearly showed and explained them, however, I was never able to get a copy of it.  Basically it has to do with;

A.) Integrated Angles between cabinets
B.) Distance between sound centers vs freq
C.) Drivers not coupling in a plane.

It was released 11 hours ago, what do you think?

Also, full *real* names are required to post to the PSW forums.  A mod will be along to admonish you...

I have just been using the new Nexo STM on an Australian tour and have loved every minute of it. Although the drive software is still minimal and basically in beta form the PA performed amazingly. The Yamaha 4X4 amp with the cabinet settings are awesome. The digitally controlled gain and array EQ sections make them the most usable amp ever. I ground stacked it each night in several configurations. The first night I stacked them on a high stage with one RS18 sub under 3 M46's & B112 and one RS18 sub on its end beside the stack. I had the bottom two STMs in the standard park position and the top boxes tilted up 5deg. The throw to the back of the room was astounding the clarity in the bottom end was incredible. Even the pan imaging was super fine. I had several members of the crew remark that they were hearing thing they had never heard before.
To get anything out of this crew is amazing, let alone a positive comment.
I have always loved Nexo Alpha and have now found a new favourite stackable PA. Cant wait to fly it. Very much looking forward to the completed software and many more STM gigs. I'ts great to have a versatile and moveable PA that feels like a large ground stack but the sound of a precise array.
