From the Manufacturer
The Y10 is the highest fidelity, mid-size 3-way line array in it’s class, and fulfils a need for a more versatile and scalable HIGH power line array. Employing a single Adamson mid/high Co-Linear drive module (with 2 patents granted and 2 pending applications). The Adamson drive module has a co-axial entrance and a co-linear exit comprised of a high frequency sound chamber mounted within a mid frequency sound chamber. The drive module is powered by a proprietary 9” Kevlar mid and a single 1.5” 4” diaphragm HF compression driver. Together, the drive module and trapezoidal cabinet design create a smooth, slightly curved, seamless wave front with no gaps between cabinets. The Y-Axis series are the only line arrays that can create slightly curved iso-phase sound sources in the high and mid frequency sections – delivering a single uniform wavefront of mid and high frequency sound. Mid lobing, comb filtering and time-smear are virtually eliminated, giving the Adamson Y-Axis line array unrivaled sonic accuracy. The Y10 – features Adamson’s light weight ND10-L 10” Kevlar, neodymium drivers. The Y10 has a defined coverage pattern of 100°-6dB / 90 °-3dB by 5 degrees. The vertical coverage is determined by the number of cabinets added to the array. The Y10 comes complete with a sliding hinge rigging system with six one degree increments, allowing precise angular positioning by adjusting the extension of the sliding hinge, while the front of the array remains closed. When coupled with the Adamson T-21Sub, the Y10 can go from the smallest venue to a large rock festival. The Y10 is a versatile main system, or a high-powered complement to the Y18 as a down or side fill system. To ensure complete Y-Axis series compatibility, the Y10 and Y18 use the same rigging system. Adamson also offers under hang kits for use with Y-Axis and the SpekTrix Series. Light aluminum dollies, and all the components for rigging the Y-Axis come standard. Waterproof Soft Covers with customized silkscreening and black powder coated aluminum rigging frames to support 16 or 24 Y10’s are available as optional accessories.
