CLAIR GLOBAL RELEASES NEW FLAGSHIP SYSTEMS: THE COHESION SERIES
Clair Global is now offering its new flagship system: The Cohesion Series. Efficiency and quality formed the philosophy behind the creation of The Cohesion, which consists of five speaker enclosures that provide high output reference-quality sound within a smaller footprint in both truck space and in the air.
“The Cohesion combines the best possible sound quality, highest maximum SPL capability, and incredible efficiency. We reduced the weight and size of the PA considerably, while improving virtually all aspects of its acoustic behaviour,” said Jim Bowersox, Clair Global Design Engineer.
Derek Brener, FOH Engineer for The Weeknd, said: “The new Cohesion Series is going to give other manufacturers a run for their money. It’s absolutely amazing.”
In addition to the sound quality, special emphasis was put into maximising efficiency. “Based on feedback from our clients, we knew that our job was to design a system that does more with less. Now we offer a 270-degree coverage system that fits into 30 feet of a truck. The system is engineered for speed and safety,” said Shaun Clair, VP of Sales for Clair Global.
The Cohesion Series was also conceived to be a very “green” system. By reducing the weight and size, less fuel is required to transport the system from gig to gig. All Cohesion Series amplifiers, including the CP-118 and CP-218 self-powered subwoofers, are Power Factor Corrected for extremely high-energy efficient operation, both of which allow tours to reduce their carbon footprint significantly.
In 2016, The Cohesion Series is being deployed to both existing and new Clair Global clients as they hit the road. Expect to see it at shows with artists such as Carrie Underwood, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, The Weeknd and Black Sabbath, to name a few.
In addition to Clair’s comprehensive in-house training program, it is expanding its curriculum to offer specialised education classes for The Cohesion Series. This ensures that all of Clair Global’s road staff remain current with the new technology. Clair also provides regular field training with its personnel at events in order to guarantee maximum quality control, consistency, and safety on all of their systems in addition to the new flagship line.
“I am proud to be part of the team that is boldly advancing the entertainment experience for the next generation,” said Matt Clair, Director of Operations for Clair Global.
