Orlando, FL (June 14, 2019)—d&b audiotechnik has debuted its new A-Series augmented array loudspeakers. Combining the design attributes of a point source cluster with the control options of a d&b line array, the system comprises the AL60 and AL90 loudspeakers, with ALi60 and ALi90 offering cabinets designed specifically for permanent installation.
Designed for medium-scale applications, the AL60/ALi60 and AL90/ALi90 can be set up in arrays of two to four loudspeakers and deployed horizontally or vertically, covering areas of 50 to 150 degrees.
Both loudspeakers share a passive 2-Way design featuring one 1.4” exit HF compression driver with a 3” diaphragm mounted to a waveshaping device, and two 10” neodymium LF drivers. The combination of waveguide design and the symmetrical dipolar arrangement of the LF drivers reportedly provides an overlap of the adjacent frequency bands in the crossover design.
Using the appropriate frame, up to four AL60/AL90 loudspeakers can be flown either in vertical columns or horizontal clusters. Variable splay angles between adjacent cabinets can be set from 20° to 40° in 5° increments.
Constructed from marine plywood the AL-Series cabinets have an impact and weather protected PCP (Polyurea Cabinet Protection) finish.
The appropriate four-channel 30D and D80 amplifiers provides user-definable equalization, with two 16-band equalizers with parametric, notch, shelving and asymmetric filters as well as delay capabilities of up to 10 seconds.
