Funktion One Hire

Freq Audio Systems have always taken great pride in supplying the industry with the highest quality service and equipment that’s possible. With the belief that high quality audio is essential not optional when it came to renewing our hire stock at the beginning of 2012 there was only one way to go and that was the Funktion One Resolution systems.

Cornwall based Freq Audio Systems are pleased to become one of the few hire companies across the UK to supply Funktion One. We now stock a wide and ever increasing range for hire including Res1, Res2, and Res4 covering Mid/High or even full range and 212minibass, F218mk2 and F121 covering the low end. All our Funktion One systems are powered by FFA amplifiers and XTA processing.


A few words from Funktion One:

"Funktion One are English inventors and manufacturers of professional loudspeaker systems.

Achieving the best possible audio quality is the principle motivating factor at Funktion One. We are intent on sonic accuracy and our technological approach avoids the use of both system EQ (with its inherent phase and headroom problems) and compression driver mid-range (with its inherent harshness and distortion). Our loudspeaker systems also have excellent directional control allowing sound to be focused where it's needed and minimising out-of-venue environmental impact.

Our designs also focus on maximising efficiency (conversion of amplifier power into acoustic energy) as this tends to produce alive and responsive sound. It also means that less electrical power is required for a given acoustic output making F1 Resolution systems more energy efficient compared to alternatives."

The Resolution 1 is a radical, 2-way loudspeaker enclosure, resulting from Tony Andrews’ 30 years pioneering research and development of high efficiency cone mid-range. A unique Funktion-One 5” loudspeaker eliminates the need for compression drivers with their associated harshness and distortion.

The Resolution 2 is an entirely horn loaded, surprisingly compact, full range loudspeaker enclosure. The driver complement comprises a 15” for bass, an 8” for midrange and a 1” for high frequencies. Funktion One’s waveguide and driver technology produces clear, involving and powerful sound. The R2’s unique combination of size, high efficiency and sonic excellence make it ideally suited to a wide range of uses. This loudspeaker resolves the requirement for quality, response and level from a small source.

The Resolution 4E is a great loudspeaker choice for medium scale events and installations offering exceptional sound quality. With simplified enclosure design without the integrated flying hardware or captive lead found on the full touring version, the R4E represents great value for money. Typically used two wide for 80-90 degree overall dispersion it is perfect for use in ground stacks with F218 or F121 bass. Dedicated accessories also enable the R4E to be flown and arrayed in fixed installations.

The Minibass 212 is a compact version of Funktion-One’s patented Infrabass technology. It provides smooth and deep bass extension to mid-high loudspeakers including F88s and Resolution 1s. The Minibass 212 incorporates dual Funktion-One designed 12" loudspeakers which drive a ported resonant chamber enclosure handling 600 Watts and averaging 104dB sensitivity between 40Hz and 125Hz. The 8ohm enclosure allows multiple units to be driven by one amplifier.

The F218 Mk2 is the latest iteration of Funktion One’s long established and highly respected dual 18” bass enclosure. This is the result of a holistic approach, over many years of research and development, into bass loading techniques. The evolved product is highly regarded in professional audio circles for its extreme robustness and delivery of large quantities of tight, punchy, well-defined clean bass from a relatively small and very manageable package. It has often been emulated but never equalled. The recently introduced F218 Mk2 brings refined loading, improved heat dissipation and an updated driver spec.

The F121 provides outstanding bass performance from a moderately sized enclosure making it the bass of choice for many diverse applications. Similar in output power to an F218, this single 21” version of the F221 can be used with virtually all Funktion One mid-high loudspeakers to great effect. The advanced loading and driver design of this high efficiency product provides audiences and crowds around the world with stimulating and satisfying experiences. The F121 comprises a horn-loaded and very robust Funktion One designed 21” driver with 6” voicecoil and Neodymium magnet. Available in 4 Ohm or 8 Ohm versions with optional wheels, throat grill and pole mount.
