éXcursion1000 - 2 1x8 Sat / 1x15

The simple concept behind the élite éXcursion1000 was to create a powerful, effective and highly mobile active stereo live PA / Club System centered around one 15-inch active subwoofer and two active 8-inch / 1-inch bi-amplified satellite loudspeakers.

The core of the élite éXcursion1000 is the single 15-inch loaded subwoofer that houses the input section, electronic crossover networks and five integrated power amplifier modules that power the entire éXcursion1000 system.

The éXcursion1000 system delivers over 950 Watts total power. 650 Watts is dedicated to the subwoofer, and 150 Watts to each of the two satellite loudspeakers. To ensure system performance and clarity, the satellite speakers are bi-amplified (125 Watts to each 8-inch driver and 25 Watts to each 1-inch horn). The satellite speakers are connected to the subwoofer with two 8m Speakon™ four-connector speaker cables that are included with the package. The system is powered by one AC line cord ensuring quick and convenient set-up and tear-down, with a minimum of cabling and connectivity around the stage. True to Yorkville loudspeaker design, all of the cabinets in the élite éXcursion1000 are made with strong, durable plywood, not MDF or composites.

Click To View High Resolution Image The electronic crossover network ensures an acoustically perfect transition between the subwoofer and the mid / high satellite speakers. Opto-limiter circuitry in the crossover network provides an unobtrusive and ''musical sounding'' compression that not only protects the speaker components, but also ensures balanced and clear reproduction from the satellite cabinets. The entire system can be connected to any mono or stereo mixer source through either XLR or 1/4-inch TRS balanced inputs. To ensure trouble free movement from Point A to Point B, the éXcursion1000 comes shipped with a detachable swivel caster dolly and Velcro™ tie down strap for the satellite cabinets. Unlike competitive system solutions, the caster kit from the élite éXcursion1000 does not remain attached to the subwoofer when the system is in use, eliminating caster buzz and rattle during live performances.

A complete, self contained and powered system with passive and active crossover networks, equalization, and separate stereo and subwoofer level control all built in, making the éXcursion Series the ultimate in compact live/DJ systems. A complete PA system that truly is "Plug and Play".
