For almost 25 years the X-act is proving to be a most reliable, optimum blend of faithful audio reproduction and versatility. The X-act can immediately be recognised by its perfect voice reproduction. This is because the human ear is extremely sensitive to deviations in this vital part of the frequency spectrum.
The X-act combines a lightweight TSG moulded, ergonomical cabinet construction with aluminum reinforcing and light loudspeaker assemblies. The resulting 16kg make the X-act a featherweight to handle but a sufficiently stable floormonitor.
The X-act always excels. As an elegant F.O.H. system, an independent distributed system or any type of infill. Last but not least the X-act is a near perfect floor monitor.
How fast can you slide a box out of a gigbag or flightcase and plug it in. 20 seconds? That is all you need to do obtain a fantastic sound system. Satisfaction guaranteed!
The SALC (Single Audio-logic Level Control) speaker management is an RMS based gain riding circuit which maintains the tonal balance of the sound as perceived by the human ear. Especially at high levels.
State-of-the-art modelling techniques and acoustic simulation programs dictate rounded cabinet shapes, manifold reinforcing ribs and no parallel surfaces. A shared wave-guide properly loads the 1” and 10” drivers. The result is minimal coloration in the “speech-band“ over a wide, yet stable sweet listening spot.
An optional quick release gigbag is available if transport has to be done on the backseat or trunk of a luxury car.

This year the X-act, the smallest SOUND PROJECTS multipurpose speaker system celebrates its 12,5th anniversary. Eventually the X-act became a sought after loudspeaker by guitar players like Steve Howe (Yes), Sigi Schwab or Peter Gabriel, who wanted the best amplification from the smallest box for their precious instruments.
Soon keyboard players and vocalists followed and opted for the X-act as an unavoidable but rewarding extension of their voice or instrument. And recently many rental companies decided to invest in this versatile, self-powered, full range monitor.
This year Concert Sound (UK), R.R. Showequipment (NL) and Focus Amsterdam enlarged their inventory of X-acts for their leading supplying role in the entertainment industry. More X-acts went to Peter Gabriel, a pair to Paul McCartney and to Dutch keyboard player Eric van de Bovenkamp (Marco Borsato a.o.).
The reason is obvious; the X-act never fails to impress the critical user time and time again in many different situations: personal amplification, front of house, floormonitor, fixed installation, etc.
Seoul, Januari 2006
SOUND PROJECTS is becoming a respected PA brand in the Korean entertainment industry. Over the last year local distributor Sound Solution has acquired a strong position in the PA market by installing sound systems in several large theatres and churches and by delivering systems for important events.
For the Performing Art Center of Hanbat National University, Sound Solution installed a fixed installation in the Harmony Hall. This auditorium can host a 909 seated audience and any art can be performed, even a grand opera; 200 men can be on stage at once. The university decided to install a powered sound system to secure consistency and reliability. SOUND PROJECTS was selected specifically because it combined smooth music reproduction as well as very clear voice production from one and the same system without the need of any intervening equalisation.
The installation consists of several SP3-90D positioned in a left/right/centre set-up augmented by SP3-15 and SP2-15 subs. Four X-act monitors are available for stage monitoring or spot in-fills depending on the scale and nature of the running production.
Leaders from 21 Asia-Pacific economies have gathered in the new Nurimaru APEC House for the “2005 APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting” in the middle of November. The Nurimaru APEC House has just been constructed on the Dongbaek Island, just in front of the city Busan. This city is known as the major Korean harbour, but also is the centre of Asia’s film and audiovisual industry.
Sound Solutions was responsible for the installation of the sound system. Transparent speech, intelligibility, very compact size and unobtrusive finish were the decisive ingredients to opt for SOUND PROJECTS. The installation is based on the front loaded, full range SP3-90D augmented with SP2-15 subs, to be completed with a few X-act monitors.
The Kintex exhibition centre in Seoul, Korea is equipped with facilities and an infrastructure that is more sophisticated than most other exhibition centers elsewhere in the world.
The impressive oval Grand Ballroom is a large-scale meeting room for international conferences and can accommodate up to 2,000 people. The ceiling is 10 meter-high and the meeting room is decorated with a state-of-the-art interior, equipped with simultaneous interpretation in eight languages and advanced A/V capabilities including quality screens and projectors.
The undistorted high SPL and plug-and-play design of the SOUND PROJECTS 4 system were major selection criteria. Accordingly the sound system for this venue is based on the SP4-Diamond/SP4-15 subs; in the middle of the hall augmented by two delay clusters of SP3-60/SP3-15. Here too a number of X-act monitors complete the installation.
