For venues or audiophiles needing maximum-volume sound, the Hydra provides twice the output of the Eros Pro without sacrificing any of the renowned Alderwood quality.
Hydra Features

 

A complete installation kit for the clearest, loudest sound 

The Hydra includes:

Two Eros Pro cube speakers

Two architecturally designed, single fixture brass ball mounts 

Two Eros Pro 3.81mm input connectors

Our Hydra V Bracket 4-ohm or 16-ohm mono input

One 1/4 TS jack plug 

 

Flexibility no matter your build

The Hydra has options: available as a mono 4-ohm or mono 16-ohm high-power point source, or Eros Pro cubes can be removed and installed as individual units with everything provided in the box. Available in heavy-duty textured black, textured white, or our trademark satin clear timber finish, the Hydra perfectly demonstrates the modular building block nature of the Eros Pro cube speaker. 

 

Perfect for theatres, halls, and large spaces

The Hydra’s low-profile, architecturally-designed look blends neatly into theatre stages as a front fill or under balconies as delay speakers. At only 7cm tall and 21cm wide, it’s virtually unnoticeable compared with many traditional theatre speakers. Its low profile makes it perfect as an on-stage monitor for artists that travel around the stage, with the renowned Alderwood smooth on- and off-axis frequency response removing feedback issues from microphones. Or, team the Hydra with a subwoofer and create an incredibly detailed front-of-house PA system for that all-rounder experience. Space not exactly ideal? The Hydra thrives in acoustically challenging rooms, with its ultra-lightweight diaphragm resolving a plethora of instruments without sound blurring, providing performances your audience will never forget. 

You’ve got to hear it to believe it: book your Alderwood demonstration here.

 

All the benefits of the Eros Pro, with twice the output

Free-floating mounting system for reduced harmonic distortion; exceptional vocal clarity; wide coverage with effective on- and off-axis frequency response; exceptional projection from our constant throw diaphragm sizing for room-filling sound – all this, but twice as loud in our uniquely-designed timber bracket. With our background in sound-for-demolition, it’ll never be too quiet.

 

Versatile mounting to suit any space

Our specially-designed, single-fixture mounting bracket allows for easy installation facing any direction. Weighing only 850 grams, the Hydra can be mounted from existing lighting bars for a virtually invisible audio and PA system without the engineering headaches. Plus, it’s easily adjustable and reusable should your needs change. It’s perfect for high-end audio upgrades in heritage buildings with speaker mounting restrictions. 

 

(Speaker inputs are provided by a standard 1/4” TS jack plug which is supplied ready to terminate. This high-powered passive 4 or 16 OHM speaker can be driven from a wide variety of amplifiers, but we recommend an amplifier with at least 200 watts per channel for commercial use, with a minimum crossover point of 150hz  

16 OHM model can be wired in parallel x4 and ran off a single 4 ohm compatible amplifier with at least 400w of power for sufficient headroom.
