Entry Description: The HPI110 is the most powerful, compact, ultra lightweight, loudspeaker of its class. Designed from the ground up the HPI110 removes the need for DSP (an electronic compensation system), reduces power consumption and eliminates the need for addition hardware. The HPI110 delivers faithful vocal reproduction at high energy outputs with advanced rigging configurations enabling uniform coverage. Its ultra-lightweight and compact form allows a single user to install the HPI110 quickly and easily. The HPI110 combines performance, style and at a price that secures its spot as one of the world’s best speaker of its type. The most difficult issue is translating the mathematical constructs of loudspeaker design parameters into real world physical dynamics. This natural limitation was overcome through laser vibrometry, a cutting edge technology, only available in a few laboratories globally. It allowed us to take measurements in real time and give us the real world realities behind the mathematical constructs. At a design level, we were able to completely understand the issue and sequences relating to moving masses and resonance and ultimately design a solution that still plagues existing designs. In a short period time the HPI110 has secured itself as the leading speaker of its class being distributed to more than 30 countries around the world. It has also helped continue to reinforce the Quest brand as a leader in innovative speaker and audio equipment design. The HPI110 has demonstrated the value of great design with an overwhelming market response delivering a 100% return on investment within the first 12 months.
