EXO SM16-A is a very high-power density compact stage monitor. Conceived to provide sound engineers and monitor users with most of the advantageous qualities of the top touring sound professional 12” coaxial stage monitors, such as compact size and symmetric design, while providing superior SPL, greater dynamic headroom, deeper LF extension in a shallower cabinet.

EXO SM16-A takes some of the convenient form-factor advantages of premium 12” Coaxial monitors and adds superior power handling and extended LF range, using two very high power 8” woofers (same as those featured by EVO88), offering greater radiation area than a 12” and two large voice-coils to share the amplifier voltage.

The HF section of the SM16-A utilises a large magnetic assembly (150 mm) for a 3” voice coil, 1 ́4 exit compression driver (also present in EVO88) coupled with an 80o x 50o horn. This large HF system ensures clear, undistorted MF/HF and very high SPL at both stage monitoring distances and in stage Fill/FOH applications.

The DSP presets included in the Powersoft 1,2 kW power-module offer four possibilities.

Stage Monitor is the basic preset for onstage standing performers (with vocal or instrument microphones situated between 1,55 and 1,85 m from the monitor) with de-emphasis of critical troublesome frequencies to expedite the monitor mixing engineer work.

The Close Field preset is intended for musicians that play or perform while sitting down, with the monitor much closer (900 mm to 1300 mm), like drummers, pianists and guitarists.

The Full Range preset offers a linear and flat response for the SM16 to be used as Main PA in portable systems or as side/front/stage fill, covering larger distances and audiences.
And the 100 Hz HPF preset offers the same uncoloured sonic characteristics with even greater dynamic headroom when used with subwoofers as Drum-Fill or FOH.

EXO SM16-A offers all the most welcome features of a dedicated stage monitor, with diminutive footprint, great multipurpose versatility and extraordinary output for such a compact loudspeaker. It is available with a tilt & lock U-Bracket for Pole mounting and Truss suspension. A two-unit wheeled flight-case (with all necessary power and signal cabling) is optional, as well as soft-padded protective covers.
