Good things definitely come in small packages and the HPI-5 is no exception. The HPI-5 is the culmination of three years of combined research and development by a design team determined to release a loudspeaker product that would be an uncontested class leader in power, performance and functionality.
The HPI-5 is a 5″ ultra compact, passive professional sound reinforcement loudspeaker ideally suited to applications that require an ultra low profile solution. Its small footprint still manages to deliver medium to high output making the HPI-5 ideally suited to short/medium throw environments. The HPI-5 is optimized for high vocal range intelligibility as a small PA system, or as a fill/delay loudspeaker in larger indoor or outdoor systems.
The innovative wide dispersion symmetrical horn flare ensures exceptional throw of mid-high frequencies delivering naturally coherent vocal with projection far superior to any other speaker in its class. Musical reproduction is also impressive with the ultra high powered 5″ woofer providing astonishing low end performance all the way down to 75Hz.
Weighing in at less than 6.5kg and under 25cm, the HPI-5 is easy to underestimate from the onset. Cleverly designed using the latest in high power compact driver technology, the HPI-5’s custom designed 5″ high tech woofer and 1″ coherent phase compression driver create the best in performance, size and balance.
A full-range system can be created with the addition of an optional subwoofer (HPI-12S).The HPI-5 high frequency section comprises a proprietary 3/4 inch horn driver matched to a custom designed symmetrical wide dispersion constant-directivity high frequency horn. The sound signature of the HPI-5 has been created in line with the entire range of Quest HPI systems making it the perfect companion to a larger system eliminating the need for extensive correction or a dedicated system processor.
With three standard 1/4″ BSW microphone mounting points: one on either side and one on the base, the HPI-5 can be used in a myriad of ways. When connecting directly to a standard microphone stand either vertically or horizontally, the unit becomes a powerful portable PA. By employing the use of the HPI-U5 bracket, the HPI-5 can be installed either from ceilings, walls or even used as a desktop unit. Standard speaker pole mounting is also possible with an adaptor.
Like all things Quest, our vision was to create a product that embodied our core beliefs:, performance, practicality, value and reliability.
The HPI-5 is the culmination of these efforts in our smallest form factor to date.
