The EAW MK5394 from EAW is a 2-way, high output, trapezoidal loudspeaker designed as main installed loudspeakers for smaller venues, including houses of worship, auditoriums/theaters, A/V systems, hotel ballrooms, and meeting rooms. It is also ideal for distributed or fill purposes in larger venues, including houses of worship, auditorium/theaters, arenas, stadiums, nightclubs, and themed-entertainment complexes.
To meet the design goals for the intended applications, EAW engineers developed a new, high performance, 3-inch voice coil, compression driver mating it to a 90° x 45° HF horn. The horn is as large as the enclosure size allows to maintain consistent directivity throughout the HF passband. A 4-inch voice coil, 15 inch LF driver was designed to complement the sonic character and output of the HF driver. All MK5300 models are carefully voiced to sound similar, permitting diverse horn patterns to be mixed throughout an installation while maintaining the same sonic quality. The results are cleaner, usable, high-fidelity output to significantly higher levels than is normally expected from loudspeakers of this size and price.
Single-amp and bi-amp operating modes are user-selectable. In single-amp mode, the beamwidth-matching passive crossover is designed for even power response through crossover, low power losses, and high power handling. In bi-amp mode a digital signal processor (DSP) is required, providing sophisticated processing to maximize performance.
Foam-backed grilles hide the drivers from view for pleasing aesthetics. Thirteen mounting points allow the enclosure to be mounted in virtually any configuration. Additional mounting points mate with OmniMount® 120.0 Series or similar brackets. Standard colors are black and white. Other colors can be specified as a special order items. This model is
The MK5300 are the larger companions to the MK2300 Series loudspeakers. Enclosures for both series are the same height facilitating installation where more than one horn pattern and/or type of loudspeaker capability is needed.
