Funktion One Resolution 5T

WHAT'S INCLUDED

  • Item(s) Hired

  • All required cables & connectors

  • Flight/Carry cases

DESCRIPTION

The Resolution 5 Touring enclosure is a high intensity three-way, mid-high loudspeaker used to create accurate point-source arrays. The unique and patented midrange Axhead loading device not only gives incredible efficiency and dispersion control, but also increases high frequency output from the 8" cone driver. This means that the crossover point to the compression driver can be raised to around 6kHz for dramatically reduced distortion compared to the compression driver based midrange so prevalent in the industry. Its highly controlled and focused dispersion enables precise tailoring of overall system coverage, simply through the geometry of the array. Unwanted room reflections are thereby substantially reduced, maintaining the enclosure's high intelligibility. The system's flexibility in application makes it suitable for any event size from 500 people to the largest festival, thereby maximising use of rental inventory. Its innovative and simple integrated flying system, combined with minimal size and weight, allow for easy and effective flying or ground stacking. The Resolution 5 is economic in terms of system cost, production budget and truck space. Above all, the accuracy and sonic quality it delivers are exceptional for all genres of music.

SUITABLE APPLICATIONS

Funktion One Resolution 1

WHAT'S INCLUDED

  • Item(s) Hired

  • All required cables & connectors

  • Flight/Carry cases

DESCRIPTION

The Resolution 1 is a radical, 2-way loudspeaker enclosure, resulting from Tony Andrews’ 40 years pioneering research and development of high efficiency cone mid-range. A unique Funktion-One 5” loudspeaker eliminates the need for compression drivers with their associated harshness and distortion. This device, when used in conjunction with the dedicated Axhead-loaded waveguide, smoothly reproduces both mid-range and high frequencies with exceptional coherency and detail. Further, this 5" device seamlessly connects with the 12" ported low frequency driver at 520Hz. This is in contrast to conventional 2-way systems where compromised compression drivers are stretched to (almost) meet equally stretched and indistinct 12" or 15" low frequency drivers at between 1 and 2kHz. The accuracy, projection and imaging detail of the R1 make it ideally suited to high intelligibility applications including theatrical use.

Funktion One F221

WHAT'S INCLUDED

  • Item(s) Hired

  • All required cables & connectors

  • Flight/Carry cases

DESCRIPTION

Funktion One are renowned for the controlled energy of our loudspeaker systems – this is nowhere more evident than in our bass enclosures which deliver physicality with accuracy for truly involving musical experiences. In the 1980s Funktion One’s Tony Andrews pioneered work on the development of the first 21” loudspeaker ever made. This provided the low end for his highly regarded system design of the time which was used on world tours by groups including Pink Floyd and Dire Straits. More recently, with F1's access to advanced materials and Andrews’ heightened understanding of loudspeaker and enclosure tuning, his original 21” concept was due for a revisit. The Funktion-One designed drivers are incredibly robust and have 6” voice coils for maximising power input. The powerful Neodymium magnet provides very high magnetic flux density whilst significantly reducing the weight compared to ceramic. The resulting F221 is an exceptionally efficient high-intensity bass enclosure providing fast, accurate, physical bass of the highest calibre.
