The Amate Audio X102FD loudspeaker is the ideal solution for medium-sized professional installations. It is not a line array system, but its power can cover the capacity of most events. In exchange it is small, light and combinable with other Amate Audio boxes.

For Amate Audio we developed in 3D the hardware engineering, aesthetics and usability collaborating very closely with the acoustics and electronics departments.
The collaboration started in November 2016 and since then we have developed more than 20 products together.
The X102FD has been developed as a point source alternative to line arrays in medium-sized application environments. The design objective has been to achieve maximum power and sound quality with the smallest sizes and maximum angle closure.
This is a two-way active speaker system consisting of two 10-inch neodymium magnet speakers and a 3-inch tweeter and titanium diaphragm. It also has a compression fastener and a rotary horn that allows 60º and 80º orientations.
It is powered by a 3000 W 3rd generation class D integrated amplifier controlled by a dedicated multi-channel DSP. Everything is controlled from a 3.5-inch touch screen on the back.
It also carries an internal DSP with all the necessary signal processing (crossover, EQ, delay, limiters, gain control, mute), as well as several useful presets to adjust the X102FD to different requirements.
Advanced signal processing using F.I.R. (Impulse response filter) and DANTE connection.
Dual Ethernet connection with integrated Ethernet switch. Wireless control available via external CWK-D hardware: The system can be controlled from anywhere in the room.
The final power is 2800 W, 2400 W LF + 400 w HF, with an SPL of 136 dB at 1 meter.
The horn can be rotated to vary the exit angle just by removing the gate and without the use of any type of tool.
With all this, a very versatile speaker has been achieved that allows work in multiple positions, staked, hung, vertically or horizontally, covering a wide spectrum of needs for concert setup.
The aesthetic will of the X102FD box design was that it was elegant and unnoticed. The proportions are finally those that have provided the result. The ergonomics has been conceived so that it can be installed by a single person anywhere. Finally, the other aspect that has been taken into account has been the protection of the case itself, which has a screen protector and a perimeter rubber that saves it from rubbing with compromised surfaces.
With Amate Audio we have developed a sophisticated system to be able to rotate the horn and thus be able to change the opening of the box from 80º to 60º depending on its orientation. This turn, which in other brands is done through the use of tools and in a considerable time, at Amate Audio we have managed to do it manually and in a matter of seconds.
In addition to being staked, the X102FD system can be suspended with Amate Audio couplings. It can be suspended vertically or horizontally, being able to greatly reduce the size vertically and horizontally.
At the same time, two boxes can be combined horizontally or vertically per side as needed. Its ideal companion is the Subwoofer X218WF 5K.
