Essentially a Heil PR 40 ergonomically perfected for live and studio use on kick drum, the PR 48 features a 1.5-inch, large-diaphragm dynamic element sealed in a vulcanized shock-mount, fed with a specially designed low-pass filter that creates a 10 dB rise from 60 to 100 Hz. Total frequency response of the PR 48 is 30 Hz – 8.5 kHz (4 dB rise @ 4.5 kHz). Its rear rejection is -40 dB @ 180 degrees off-axis. It can handle 148 dB SPL. The PR 48 metal housing was designed with a slanted entrance to the 3-pin XLR, allowing cable connections to be easier.
