The ARES5A is a 2-way active speaker system consisting of an active and passive unit to be linked with each other. It offers an easy and flexible solution for a wide variety of applications. The 2-way loudspeaker is carefully constructed out of high quality components resulting in a 5 ¼” woofer and a ½” high frequency tweeter. This craftmanship in combination with an integrated DSP is creating an extremely clear and powerful sound experience for a wide range of applications.
The integrated amplifier can deliver a power of 2 x 40 Watt and includes a stereo line input which is implemented balanced and unbalanced, allowing convenient connection to any kind of audio source. Unbalanced audio sources are connected through a 3.5 mm jack connector, while balanced sources can be connected to the terminal block input connection allowing long signal runs without interference. A volume potentiometer allows the user to adjust the level of loudness while the two-band tone control allows equalization of treble and bass. The auto-standby mode reduces power consumption when no input signal is detected. The active speaker includes a stereo amplifier module, also delivering the input signal to the passive unit.
A specially designed bracket system allows close to wall installation of the speakers, while the recessed bracket structure guarantees an optimal cosmetic outlook of the system. The ARES5A can be mounted both horizontally as vertically with an inclination up to 45° on both sides, enabling to position the loudspeaker in the right direction. Due to the fact that the bracket itself consists of 2 45° corners, installation in corners or even ceiling can easily be achieved. The optional MBK455 angled mounting bracket set allows for an extra inclination of 90° when needed.
To ensure optimum safety during and after installation, the ARES is equipped with M6 drop safety.
A remote input connection implemented through an RJ45 connector allows wall panel connections, allowing expansion of the system through remote input modules. A variety of optional remote input units with different input possibilities is available.
Clear and powerful sound experience
The 2-way loudspeaker is carefully constructed out of high-quality components using a 5 ¼” woofer and a ½” high-frequency tweeter. This craftsmanship in combination with an integrated DSP is creating an extremely clear and powerful sound experience for a wide range of applications.
The design of the solution is ensured to streamline with the rest of the AUDAC product portfolio. Through its ABS enclosure and by ensuring that the mounting bracket blends aesthetically into the cabinet itself, the ARES gives you a more sleek and modern outlook than other solutions on the market.
Install at any angle
The standard included bracket system allows close-to-wall installation up to 45° inclination and can even be installed in corners. The optional MBK455 angled mounting bracket set allows for an extra inclination of 90° when needed.
An entire ecosystem
The optional WP2xx series not only offer great controllability over the ARES5A yet also enables us to expand our inputs largely. The user-friendliness goes even further than controlling a single ARES set, as one wall panel allows you to control and share inputs to up to four ARES sets and quickly change input and/or volume.
A complete audio solution
A remote input connection implemented through an RJ45 connector allows wall panel connections, expanding the system through remote input modules. Control up to 4 ARES5A sets (8 speakers) with the WP2xx series remote wall mixers.
