Perfect for speech, theater, orchestra and choir sound reinforcement and recording.

  • Superior off-axis rejection for maximum gain before feedback
  • UniGuard RFI-shielding technology offers outstanding rejection of radio frequency interference (RFI)
  • UniSteep filter provides a steep low-frequency attenuation
