Using the Auro X12D/X15D as a Floor Monitor
The Auro X12D is an ideal solution for stage monitoring and thanks to its unique design, two wedge monitor positions are possible. When placed on its side, with the high frequency horn facing to the left of the enclosure, the Auro is tilted at a 30 degree angle, optimizing performance when used on a large stage but when facing to the right of the enclosure, the Auro is tilted at a 45 degree angle optimizing performance when used on smaller stages. Brilliant!
