Valencia, Spain (June 27, 2005)–D.A.S. has added two powered stage monitors. The biamped SM-12A 12-inch 2-way and SM-15A 15-inch 2-way systems use the latest in power amplifier technology offering a Class D 500 W amp for the low-frequency section and a 100 W Class A/B amp for the highs. The SM-12A utilizes a high-efficiency, 12-inch, low-frequency speaker with a 3-inch voice coil.
The SM-15A’s low-frequency section makes use of a high-efficiency, 15-inch, low-frequency speaker with a 3-inch voice coil. The high-frequency section, as in the case of the SM-12A, utilizes a neodymium compression driver with 1.5-inch exit and 3-inch titanium diaphragm. The loudspeaker components are protected by means of a steel grille with a fabric backing behind the grille. The fabric provides protection from dust and dirt, and is both acoustically transparent and flame-retardant.
