MISCO, a leading audio systems manufacturer, and Elite Gaming Technology (EGT) have joined forces to create the EGT Sound Beam, an integrated sound module designed to deliver higher quality sound for gaming.
The EGT Sound Beam packs a 2.1 (left, right, subwoofer) stereo sound system into a single structural component that’s only 20.3 inches long by 2.3 inches high by 4 inches deep. The compact size is intended to allow more room in the game cabinet for the bigger CPUs and display processors required by today’s sophisticated casino games.
The Sound Beam system includes a custom driver array of six speakers, delivering the equivalent of a 5.25-inch subwoofer in a 2-inch space, driven by a high-efficiency Class D amplifier. “Your players will hear the wide range of game sounds, both music and effects more evenly, which will enhance their total gaming experience,” said MISCO President Dan Digre. “Game developers can leverage the high-fidelity performance of the EGT Sound Beam to deliver more sophisticated soundtracks in their games.”
The EGT Sound Beam provides a frequency range of 60 Hz to 20 kHz. The speakers, engineered and built by MISCO, feature a diaphragm of composite carbon fiber laminate, rubber surround, a neodymium magnet motor, enclosed mid-drivers which eliminate modulation, and extra-wide vertical dispersion with a low cabinet-edge diffraction. The high-efficiency MISCO amplifier electronics include an automatic crossover for the subwoofer, automatic bass management, programmable EQ for tonal balance and programmable high-frequency shelf and adjustable low frequency controls.
