Pioneer Pro Audio adds four models to the XY Series of compact speakers, giving venues even more installation options for a warm, immersive sound

Pioneer Professional Audio is adding four models to the XY Series of compact, high SPL speakers; so venues can enjoy the series’ warm, enveloping sound in every installation configuration imaginable. Plus, with the whole range to be available in classic black or premium white, the XY Series is a stylish system for any setting.

In addition to the original four speakers, venues can choose from four new models:

  • XY-101 and XY-152: powerful 10-inch and 15-inch two-way, full range PA speakers
  • XY-115S: a discreet, 15-inch bass reflex subwoofer perfect for smaller spaces
  • XY-218S: a powerful bass reflex subwoofer with twin 18-inch drivers, ideal for large rooms and temporary outdoor installations

The launch of these models extends the XY Series, giving it even more versatility to deliver incredible, even sound to every corner of any room,” says Pioneer Pro Audio Manager, Alex Barrand. “The speakers are compact in size without compromising on sound quality, and now venues can mix and match to complement their environment perfectly.

The new models build on the success of Pioneer Pro Audio’s flagship club speaker system, which debuted in 2013 comprising the GS-WAVE dancefloor stack – built in close collaboration with Gary Stewart Audio – and four XY Series compact, high power speakers.

Designed for bars, restaurants and mid-sized venues, the XY Series offers an array of rigging options and accessories. The system is supported by Powersoft K-Series DSP amplifiers.

The XY Series is already making waves around the world, with bespoke installations in venues including the exclusive I’m On Top Of The World suite at Ibiza’s Ushuaïa Tower and KM5 hybrid restaurant and club.
