Mitus.jpg_logo_home

MITUS SOUND REINFORCEMENT SYSTEMS. A comprehensive range of both powered and passive line arrays, 2-way speakers, subwoofers and low profile stage monitors.

  • High quality B&C neodymium magnet woofers, custom manufactured for FBT
  • The latest generation of B&C compression drivers
  • High efficiency Class D power amp modules with switch mode power supplies, fixed to Die-cast aluminum chassis. This provides maximum protection of the electronics from dust, prevents air loss through the input control panel, and it maximizes heat dissipation. All this has allowed the realization of a 3.2 Kg lightweight power amp module that delivers 1200Wrms!
  • DSP with A/D-D/A low noise converters providing 8 selecaccordion_togglele presets to customize the sound program for various applications, or simply to taste of the user through a setup selection.
  • Neutrik Powercon IN and LINK OUT power connectors
  • Aluminum die-cast carrying handles with rubber inserts
  • A wide range of accessories
  • Heavy duty metal grille with anti-resonance spacers and exclusive synthetic cloth to protect the drivers from dust and moisture, without modifying the acoustic fidelity. Unlike widely used conventional foam linings, our FBT synthetic cloth will not break down or disintegrate over time.

So they represent the fruit of many years of experience in research, development and testing, that makes FBT proud to apply the long experience as speaker manufacturer in this new systems for all weather applications.

WATER STOP GRILL
The prime consideration in designing SHADOW cabinets was extreme weather resistance, also for the drivers that would be employed inside them. The exceptionally weather resistant driver is further protected by the water-stop grille: it stops the elements, solid or liquid, from getting inside the enclosure. Each protective grille is a 3 layers structure that consists of an external perforated stainless steel panel treated with a special protection, a center layer of reticulated foam and an inner layer of water-repellent polyester mesh, providing maximum protection and minimal acoustic attenuation.

CIRCUITRY PROTECTION
All internal circuitry is protected with a special sealing and treated with weather proofing compound against the effects of moisture, corrosion and oxidation.

MOUNTING ACCESSORIES
Weather resistant steel mounting brackets are included with all models.

CLA system features:

  • High-level sound quality from 50Hz to 20kHz expressly developed for live performance
  • Long distance sound projection and better SPL distribution towards the audience
  • Great and dynamic power performance thanks to tri-amplification system
  • Lightweight and easy to carry
  • Design and elegance for an easy integration even in the most demanding installations
  • Very compact dimensions enable the listener to concentrate on sound and not on speakers!
  • High horizontal dispersion

VERTUS CLA is a true professional line array system that can satisfy the musician looking for a compact PA solution, easily to carry, modular, ready to use in just minutes with no-compromise quality. It is capable of being integrated into any environment or installation requiring high-quality sound and controlled directional characteristics.
