The FBT HI Maxx 40a speaker features lightweight, yet rugged gas injected molded polypropylene cabinet construction. The asymmetrical shape of the HI Maxx 40a cabinet also allows use as a powered floor stage monitor. The FBT HI Maxx 40a is a two-way design incorporating a custom FBT designed, B&C manufacturered 12 low frequency woofer with neodymium magnet and a B&C 1.7 High frequency driver coupled to a 90H x 60V horn. The active internal crossover is at a fixed frequency of 1.6k. With a frequency range of 45Hz 20kHz, the HI Maxx 40a provides hi fidelity sound for both speech and music applications with a maximum SPL of 127 dB. A front face steel grille protects the woofer from external damage. FBTs ADAP Advanced Dynamic Active Protection circuitry protects speaker/driver components against failure. The Bi amplified HI Maxx 40a active speaker features a 500w RMS Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) low frequency amp, and a 150w RMS Class G high frequency amp. The control panel features a master volume control, 3 band EQ with +- 15dB of cut/boost @ 80Hz LF, 12 dB of cut/boost @2.5k Midrange and +- 15 db cut/ boost @ 10kHz, a balanced Neutrik input combo jack (female XLR, TRS, ), balanced XLR link output jack, microphone / line input switch, and ground lift switch, stereo RCA input with a separate volume control, LED power on and separate HF and LF overload LED indicators.

The four M -10 fly points built into the cabinets, along with the optional Box 100 or Box 101 mounting brackets allow the Maxx 4a speakers to be surface mounted on walls or ceilings. A standard 1? speaker stand socket allows the HI Maxx 40a to be mounted on speaker stands.
