The HOT SPOT monitor series has been the worldÕs number one personal monitor since it's invention in 1977. There are two basic concepts that have led to the continued success of the HOT SPOT. The first concept was to bring the monitor closer to the performer. Second, was to create a monitor that projects mid/high range frequencies; a frequency tailoring that Galaxy calls controlled bandwidth. By bringing the monitor closer, the stage volume can be reduced, which, in turn, helps clean up the front of house mix. Its integral volume control allows the performer to have more control over his/her volume and to hear the other musicians on stage. The HOT SPOT's frequency range is tailored for the mid/high range (150Hz-18kHz). As live performers know, the mid/high range carries all the vocal clarity. The HOT SPOT is most effective, because of the fact it can be placed closer to the performer, its use of controlled bandwidth, and most importantly, its two NEOLITE high-efficiency high power drivers!
