Voice alarm with ProSound sound quality
TOA's HX-7 variable array speaker is now EN54 certified and can be integrated in voice alarm systems according to EN-Certification standards.
Studies show that voice messages are more effective at warning people and evacuating buildings than pure sound alarm. In concrete terms this means that setting up a voice alarm system helps to protect human lives.
With this sensitive topic, legislation is based on requirements designed to achieve the greatest possible level of safety. An essential part of these requirements concerns the technical components of fire alarm and voice alarm systems. For example, a voice alarm system must be planned and constructed with certified products that comply with DIN EN54 regulations (DIN EN54-4 power supply units, DIN EN54-16 central technology, DIN EN54-24 loudspeakers).
TOA offers fully EN54 certified voice alarm systems that can be optimally adapted to the respective building and room concept. The quality of the selected loudspeakers is decisive for the effectiveness of the alarm announcements, which is why the selection of the right loudspeakers for the respective location is of decisive importance. With certified loudspeakers, the planner can ensure that the volume is adapted to each area and that the announcements are always transmitted with the best possible speech intelligibility. With the addition of the HX-7 Variable Array speaker to the range of certified products available, new possibilities are now available for installers and planners to equip their projects – especially in large halls or stadiums.
The HX-7 is a compact line array loudspeaker with adjustable dispersion angle and SYNC-Drive™ waveguide technology for the tweeter. The exceptional design of the HX-7 combines four modules, which can be adjusted vertically by 0 - 15 - 30 - 45° or even 60° and can therefore be perfectly adapted to local conditions and different acoustic requirements. If required, the system can be extended by a subwoofer to provide even better bass reproduction. Whether it's a sports facility, concert hall, auditorium or exhibition hall – the HX-7 provides excellent speech intelligibility, remarkable efficiency and a wide range of installation options.
