NEXO unveils the new GEO M10 line array, a high-output sound reinforcement
system for long-throw theatre and live music applications. With characteristic
innovation and ingenuity, NEXO has produced an exciting contemporary design using
a single 10′ driver, delivering an unprecedented ratio of LF response to cabinet size
for this class of mid-size line array.

The GEO M10 system is a true power package, twice as more powerful as its sister
GEO M6 compact line array, launched 2 years ago. While the M10 design aesthetic
is comparable to the elegant new-generation silhouette of the M6, the larger M10
cabinet draws on structural and acoustic innovations first released in NEXO’s
ground-breaking STM Series modular line array, in particular the STM M28.

So, what’s in this injection-moulded reticulate urethane co-polymer enclosure? The
M10 takes its name from the single 10′ neodymium LF driver, paired with a 1.4′ HF
titanium diaphragm HF driver. With a footprint of 531(W) x 288(H) x 355(D) mm,
this 2-way passive module will deliver a frequency response of 59Hz-20kHz with
nominal peak SPL of 131dB.

There are two versions of the M10 cabinet, offering 12.5° and 25° of vertical
dispersion. Both have 80°/120° horizontal dispersion which can be configured
manually, without tools, by removing the magnetic grille and adjusting NEXO’s
innovative flange fixing system.

The choice of a single 10′ design does not come out of the blue. NEXO’s first line
array – GEO S8, a single 8′ 2-way cabinet – has proved to be one of the most
successful in the market. And when it comes to 10′ drivers, NEXO is the market
leader with its ubiquitous PS10 Series – launched in 1993, enhanced in 2009, it is
one of the best-selling loudspeaker models in professional sound.

There are several advantages to the use of a single 10′ driver, instead of the more
commonly found double-6′ designs. The principle benefit is a much lower
frequency response from a 2-way cabinet. The box keeps a narrow profile, and its
height provides for tighter inter-cabinet angles.
