B&C go beyond borders with its largest horn

Florence, Italy, October, 12th 2020 – In the wake of innovation brought about by the wide-bandwidth ring radiator drivers, B&C has now released the ME464 built especially to extract their full capabilities.

B&C’s new ME464 is the largest commercially available horn for professional audio. It features a 22” (575mm) wide mouth loading an attached driver to 300Hz, while the 1.4” throat stabilizes a 70° x 55° polar pattern to the upper limit of human hearing.

Made of durable and non-resonant polyurethane, the ME464 can stand up to road use as well as shine in high output arrays in fixed installation. Reduced inter-box interaction and off axis energy from the tight pattern brings immediate benefits to sound quality and clarity, plus the ME464 is the only horn which can support the full frequency response of our DCX464 coaxial driver.

Founded in 1946, the company now operates out of a nearly 14,000 square meter, state of the art production and R&D facility in Bagno a Ripoli (Florence), Italy.
