At the Westin, Governor's suite (suite number 325
) XTX group shall be demoing their wares.
XTX Group is a startup founded by the owner of Bormann Marketing (commercial/pro sound rep-firm), Jon Bormann.
Here are some broad-strokes:
Fully active crossovers
DSP built-in amplifiers
Line Array technology
Loudspeakers produced by Innovox audio (special design)
Fully custom-built ; as-in project to project- think along the lines of a build-to-order loudspeaker/audio system
Vertically integrated: speakers, amps, processors, acoustics consultation, room design, etc.
Some of the best names in the Pro Sound industry are partners:
Here's what I know about the system being demonstrated:
7.x (several subs used for LFE/ full range duties; 12" and 18")
135" 1.78 aspect Stewart Microperf Studiotek 130 screen
ProjectionDesign F32 projector
8x32 DSP array
I've heard the XTX prototypes in my demo room and was rather impressed with not only the musicality and depth of soundstage, but also the sheer output capability. Our demo came the day after there was a day-long demo at the Copernicus Theater in Chicago for Innovox products; and I listened to ONE of their line arrays fill that theater (single speaker unit) and do so musically!
This is a system that is going to turn heads as it moves on; this is the beginning of something pretty special. I encourage all attendees to pay a visit to the suite at the Westin, and to visit booth 2348
registered to XTX group and Peavey electronics.
