Hills strengthens ties with Community Professional Loudspeakers
The IV6 is a scalable, adaptive sound reinforcement system that features multiple vertically arrayable elements, designed to be used in combination or separately, with or without splay between cabinets. These provide an extensive range of vertical coverage angle and throw distance configurations.
Two carefully chosen array elements, 120° by 5° and 120° by 15°, overcome the physical limitations and acoustical tuning difficulties of conventional line arrays and constant-curvature (point source) arrays while maintaining the best qualities of each.
“The IV6 represents a real advancement in speaker design at price point currently unavailable in the ANZ market. We’re excited to add it to our range of Community products,” says Hill chief executive David Lenz.
“Community manufacture a wide range of high performance speakers that offer exceptional sound quality and are a perfect fit with our existing portfolio. They’re focused on the same installation markets as Hills – stadiums, hotels and retail, hospitality and tourist venues, hospitals and public buildings – and we’re confident that the launch of the IV6 will see us gain further traction in these verticals.”
Community chief executive Steve Johnson says the company will continue to innovate with new products, like the IV6, to exceed the industry’s expectations.
“We’re excited to have Hills as our distribution partner in Australia and New Zealand, and we look forward to strengthening our position in the market through the expertise and experience Hills brings to this channel.”
Hills is planning industry events throughout March to showcase the sound quality and coverage of the IV6 in a real-world environment.
