Audica


“Awesome!” “Phenomenal!” “Superb!”

“So much sound from such a small speaker!”

We are pleased to announce that we are now specifying and installing the revolutionary range of British designed loudspeakers, amplifiers and processors from Audica Professional.

Combining leading-edge design and acoustic engineering in flexible audio solutions, applications fo the Audica Professional range include retail outlets, restaurants, bars, hotel public areas and guest rooms, meeting rooms, corporate AV, museums and visitor centres.
Producing an amazingly ‘big’ full range sound at all audio levels. the MICROseries is a system, not just a range of components. The system is DSP controlled via the MICROzone to give outstanding audio performance from the MICROseries ultra-compact loudspeakers.

Traditional design of loudspeakers for these applications has either been large boxes that give full-range audio, but which are inherently less attractive or more visible, or sub-sat systems that use tiny satellite loudspeakers for mid/high frequencies and a subwoofer for mid/bass. The main problem with sub-sat systems in public spaces is that people are often listening close to thin sounding satellites with the mid/bass rumbling away in the distance, disconnected in bringing the critical mid-band together for audio quality.

The MICROseries system offers the options of two wall-mount and one ceiling-mount loudspeaker, which give wide-band audio so that, no matter where you are in the room, the sound remains coherent and pleasing. Integral wire-through brackets are incorporated and the loudspeaker enclosures are constructed from high quality aluminium. For many background music and information installations no additional bass loudspeakers are required, but for applications requiring extended, higher level bass performance, such as an audio visual system playing back movies or for ‘livelier’ pubs, bars or retail outlets, the MICROsub can be used to augment the output of the other speakers and carefully tuned to just add extended bass and not confuse the critical mid-band.

With all of the MICROseries loudspeakers, aesthetics have been a prime consideration. This starts with the family look, which is softly shaped to merge into the environment. Secondly with the selection of materials, which have to be acoustically excellent but also provide for flexibility of design and quality of appearance.

The MICROdot is a single-piece aluminium casting with a micro-perf steel grille for acoustic transparency with durability. The MICROdot fits a standard 85mm diameter ceiling spotlight cut-out and is fitted with integral spring-clips. Connection is by means of screw post terminals.

The MICROpoint uses aluminium extrusions with moulded aluminium end-caps. Grilles are micro-perf steel for acoustic transparency with durability. The MICROpoint has a unique and secure integral bracket, merging the design of loudspeaker and bracket. Only the bracket needs to be fixed and connected during first-fix. Fitting the loudspeaker, with pre-wired cable management through the bracket, is then done as required and the position locking screw is hidden behind the loudspeaker grille. A high degree of tilt and pan are catered for, allowing for wall or ceiling mounting with the required angle of coverage.

At the heart of the MICROseries range is the innovative MICROzone, a 5-configuration amplifier/controller that provides unequalled flexibility for a wide range of applications with single or multi-location input and control. Comprehensive switching functions enable the unit to be used singly and in multiples; as a complete system amplifier/controller; as an additional zone amplifier/controller; as a system master; as a slave amplifier or as a system equaliser.

Comprehensive facilities on the MICROzone allow for: stereo or 2-channel mono operation; one 0.5V front panel stereo mini-jack input for MP3 and PC connection plus 2 rear panel 1.0V RCA stereo inputs; a switch for common line feed through multiple units with the ability for alternative input selection on zones; fixed and variable line outputs for master or independent level control of additional zone units; equalised line output for using additional standard power amplifiers; front volume control with master output level on rear for applications where maximum levels need to be preset; IR control via the front panel or an optional RJ45 CAT5 remote IR sensor and filtered sub output for feed to active sub-bass loudspeakers.

The Audica Professional MICROplus is an ultra-compact 4-channel power amplifier with the same size and style of the MICROzone pre/amp/controller, which it is designed to partner. It delivers 4 x 80W into 4 Ohm per channel, 2 x 80W into 4 Ohm plus 1 x 160W bridged into 8 Ohm or 2 x 160W into 8 Ohm with twin channels bridged.

Features include 4-channel limiting and protection and individual channel bar indicators showing output level, clip and fault. The unit has rear-mount level control, phono in/out and screw terminal loudspeaker outputs for each channel. Being a straight gain amplifier, the MICROplus is designed to be used in conjunction with the MICROzone, which provides pre-amp functions and the equalization for the MICROseries loudspeakers.
