12″ high performance stage monitor
The new N12SM is a highly portable and powerful stage monitor with superb musical performance and pristine sound, offering outstanding vocal response, low-distortion mid and low range frequencies, thanks to its exceptional 12” LF and 1.75” HF neodymium drivers.
Nítid from the Latin nitidus, meaning bright, glistening or lustrous, clear; and nitere, to shine. Launched in 2017, the name is the inspiration for the loudspeaker series that celebrates 45 years of Amate Audio.
Nítid speaker systems employ the very latest digital amplification and processing technologies, in symbiosis with advanced acoustic research, to achieve exceptional levels of performance from ultra-compact speaker cabinets.
The Nítid series’ compact cabinet designs and high-power signal output make it highly versatile. It is perfectly suited to rental and sound touring companies, and AV installers’ application requirements. The product range covers the full spectrum of mobile and fixed sound applications, including in entertainment and event, performing arts, worship, corporate, hospitality and enterprise.
Every Nítid design is the culmination of a meticulous program of research and engineering design. The highest possible levels of power and performance are achieved from compact systems, in a dynamic process of optimisation, calibration and configuration of components and form factor, in synthesis with our very latest digital amplification and signal processing technologies.
Distinguishing structural detail includes innovative lightweight speaker grilles, that improve both protection and sound quality, Polyurea® coated multilayer birch plywood cabinet construction, providing high structural rigidity and long-term durability, and Amate Audio’s exclusive SensitiveTouch™ weatherproof capacitive keypad technology, for accessing the system electronics. On Nítid powered systems, Amate Audio’s universal switch mode power supply enables operation with any mains condition between 85 and 265 V AC. Carefully recessed carry handles and easily secured flying points enable the handling, deployment and positioning of Nítid series lightweight cabinets with relative ease. Backlit Nítid logos can be switched off, or switched to indicate when the system is limiting.
Nítid offers new standards of performance and operational versatility from compact loudspeaker systems, attaining SPLs and levels of sonic reproduction not previously possible from cabinets of this size. Exemplary performance levels are combined with an ease of setup and use, unique in a professional sound reinforcement series, including optimised ‘plug & play’ system control presets for virtually instantaneous operation.
All Nítid series systems are characterized by the same exceptional high quality, crystal clear sound, with high levels of articulation in the vocal frequency range and smooth HF and LF extended response. With their remarkable high-power signal output to form factor ratio, Nítid systems deliver exceptional signal coverage from compact loudspeaker systems, with a dependably smooth frequency response.
