Our flagship unit is our 8 receivers in a single 1u rack case with 8 transmitters - the Creative Audio CA.81BB. Available in 2 frequency bands we can get 24 channels to play nice in most areas of the US and have even managed more is some places. We recommend you stop at 16 for most locations.
There are 4 channel and 2 channel versions available too. The CA.81 uses an external power supply, but the others have a built in 95-250v AC power supply built in.
In 2016 we launch our Range of RFdevices Antenna Distribution Units (ADUs) and directional paddle antennas - these were rebadge units from various overseas manufacturers.
In 2020 we launched our own CA.D25 dual 4 way ADU with cascade out and DC voltage current metering. It was as good as mainstream units selling for 2-2.5 times the price.
In 2021 we added a dual 24 way 1u ADU (CA,ADU24) which had dual 13A 13.5v DC outputs and the ability to power Sennheiser receivers via the B side antenna outputs.
By the end of 2022 we will have released our CA.D29 dual 8 way plus cascade out ADU which is designed to simplify cabling of 1/2 rack width receivers with it's innovative back panel.
We have always held that for theatre , the vocals are the most important aspect of any sound system. Our research indicates that small cone drivers produce the most natural sounding musically accurate vocals. As a result, back as far as the late 1970s we were using columns of 4" full-range cone speakers for reinforcing musical theatre vocals.
In addition to proving to be better sounding, these columns (now referred to as vertical line arrays or line array columns) provide a much more controlled coverage pattern - typically 120 degrees wide by 20-40 degrees vertically, compared to 90x 60 or 90x 70 typically provided by systems using horns to carry the vocals. This means we are concentrating more of the sound to the audience and less to the space above them - this provides more protection against feedback.
Back in early 1990 we designed a version of the concert style line arrays which we toured around Australia - this has given rise to our latest line array system based on dual 4" drivers in a multi-box array.
Since 2007 we have been renting theatre oriented wireless microphone systems across the US mainland.
We now have over 500 channels of high quality Shure digital wireless systems (SLXD, QLXD and ULXD) plus lots of out Creative Audio CA.81 8 channels in a box systems i our RENTAL inventory
Back in 2014 we started manufacturing our ranges of microphones for wireless systems, and in 2016 production began on our CA.81 8 channel in 1u wireless system. In 2019 we started working on our range of theatre specific line array speaker systems, but then came covid ... we will be launching these by the end of 2022.
We have found that most really good gear is out of the reach of the average non-professional theatres. And most of the inexpensive (CHEAP!) stuff just doesn't cut it.
This all started when we needed to find a reasonable sounding earset microphone that wouldn't break the bank. To this end we started making our own microphones - Bodymics Broadway and Drury Lane series of microphones for wireless.
So why do we bother .... we believe that amateur and non-profit groups who have tight budgets should be able to use good gear at a fair price. As a result we have deigned gear to meet their needs, and sell them at below (often way below) market prices. How? We don't always have all the bells and whistle, simpler packaging and are less greedy as we don't need to support huge organizations and massive advertising budgets.
To bring affordable theatre oriented audio products to the amateur and semi-pro live theatre market by designing and manufacturing and sourcing products that work really well and can be sold at prices well below that of the major brand equivalents.
