NUMARK TO PREMIER N-WAVE 360 DESKTOP DJ MONITOR SPEAKERS AT BPM 2014

Cumberland, RI, USA – September 13, 2014.  Numark (numark.com), the world’s leading innovator of DJ solutions, is set to debut their N-Wave 360 desktop DJ monitoring system at the upcoming BPM 2014 show to be held in Birmingham, England. 

Designed to offer the DJs impressive desktop sound in a compact format, the self-powered N-Wave 360 includes two matched speaker cabinets. Each cabinet contains a 1" silk dome tweeter—with blue LED illumination—matched with a 3" woofer via a precision crossover circuit. The onboard amplification system can deliver up to 60 Watts of peak power. These magnetically shielded powered monitors are ideal for a compact studio setup; they won’t interfere with other electronics and offer extra protection when used near a video monitor.

“The N-Wave 360 brings both visual excitement and exceptional audio monitoring to the studios of DJs all over the world—at a tremendous value,” offers Karl Detken, Director of Marketing, Numark. “With their blue LED illuminated tweeters, these monitors not only look electrifying, but they deliver incredible audio performance as well.”

The amplification system for both speakers is cleverly mounted in one unit, requiring just one power outlet to drive two speakers. Unlike many studio monitors, the volume knob is conveniently located on the front panel for easy access. High-density materials are used to increase acoustic efficiency, and bass porting improves the low-end response. Concave oval waveguides provide a wide listening area “sweet-spot” for accurate imaging and fatigue-free listening. Radial-edge speaker baffles minimize audio distortion.

For those users needing more low-end punch, an electronic bass-boost circuit is provided, as well as a subwoofer output that can be used to add a powered subwoofer to the N-Wave 360 monitoring system. 

N-Wave 360 Highlights:

  • Precise audio amplification for home DJ setups
  • Convenient front panel volume control
  • 1" silk dome tweeters with blue led illumination
  • 3" low-frequency drivers
  • Precision crossover circuitry
  • High-fidelity amplification with 60 watts of peak power
  • Efficient cabinets constructed from dense wooden materials
  • Concave waveguides create a wider sweet spot listening area
  • Carefully formed baffle radiuses reduce edge diffraction
  • RCA audio inputs
  • Magnetically shielding
  • 80 Hz – 20 kHz frequency response
  • Universal voltage

DJs will be able to see N-Wave 360 on display at the 2014 BPM Show at Booth C45, September 13-15 in Birmingham, England. N-Wave 360 will be available in stores this fall with a street price of $99 USD. For more information, visit: numark.com/product/n-wave360
