The Optima 5 is an ultra-compact vertically arraying loudspeaker enclosure that is designed to be both flexible in application and scalable in system size. Operational modes include pole mount, ground stack or flown array, while systems can be configured from as compact as two pole mounted enclosures up to a flown drop of eighteen boxes. The cabinet combines two off 5" mid bass cone drivers with a 100mm planar wave guide loaded on an integral horn structure. The horn structure has a nominal dispersion character of 110° horizontally by 15° vertically. All components use neodymium magnet structures.
The enclosure is manufactured from 15mm birch plywood and coated in a heavy duty polyurea finish. The cabinet front has a protective steel grill coated in a water resistant powder coat finish which has an acoustically transparent filter medium bonded to its back surface. The enclosure incorporates a fully integrated fly system which permits box to box angle selection in 2.5° increments. Box to box connection is via three ball lock pins. To assist transit each cabinet has a handle on each end and the option of a flightcase which accepts six cabinets.
Electrical connection to the cabinet is via two parallel linked Neutrik NL4 MP connectors. All Inspired Audio products are designed as an integrated solution complete with system amplifier options from the eFlex range. The eFlex units provide DSP preset functions, networked software control of operating parameters and output drive power. For further details please refer to the eFlex loading chart.
The Optima 5 has a variety of bass options dependent on application. For live sound the reFlex B215 is the recommended enclosure with the option of adding reFlex SB118 enclosures to larger systems. Alternatively within A/V applications where speech is the primary purpose the Optima B210 is the recommended choice. The Optima B210’s integrated fly system allows it to be flown above the Optima 5 in discrete full range flown hangs. The Optima 5 and Optima B210 share a common Crossbow frame that enables combinations of the product to be flown, truss mounted, ground stacked or pole mounted.
