Nexo Debuts Higher-Power Geo M10 Line Array
Nexo used the ISE Europe Show in Amsterdam in early February 2017 to launch the new high-output, long-throw Geo M10 line array -- a contender for church project specification.

Nexo engineers tout several advantages to the use of a single 10-inch driver: a much lower frequency response from a two-way cabinet; and the cabinet’s narrow profile and height provides for tighter inter-cabinet angles.
Reported to be twice as powerful as its sister Geo M6 compact line array launched two years ago, the larger M10 cabinet draws on structural and acoustic innovations first released in the innovative Nexo STM Series modular line array, particularly the injection-molded STM M28 cabinet.
The M10 enclosure is named such for its single 10-inch neodymium low-frequency driver, paired with a 1.4-inch titanium-diaphragm high-frequency driver. The two-way passive module will deliver a frequency response of 59 Hz-20 kHz and nominal peak SPL of 131 dB.

Two versions offer 12.5 degrees and 25 degrees of vertical dispersion. Both have 80-degree/120-degree horizontal dispersion that can be configured manually by removing the magnetic grill and adjusting the company’s advanced flange fixing system.
The sub-bass cabinet for the M10 is the MSUB15. Weighing 79 pounds, the new sub is a housed in either a sturdy touring package with steel grille or the installation version featuring a cloth grill. M10 can be flown or ground-stacked on top of the MSUB15s, with between -12 degrees to +12 degrees of tilt.
The new product announcement suggests power amplification using Nexo’s NXAMP4x4 TDcontroller; with up to four M10 cabinets per channel, and up to three MSUB15 subs per channel. The system can be controlled over a network using a Dante, Ethersound or AES/EBU digital expansion card.
