Anaheim, CA (February 1, 2016)—PreSonus has announced its ULT Series of active loudspeakers, reportedly combining “the widest horizontal dispersion of any loudspeaker in their class with a focused vertical dispersion for an ultra-long throw.”
Designed for both mobile use and permanent installations by PreSonus’ WorxAudio commercial loudspeaker division located in Greensboro, NC, the series includes the ULT12 and ULT15 full-range systems and the ULT18 subwoofer. The full-range ULT12 and ULT15 feature PreSonus’ proprietary, rotatable Pivot X110 horn and a proprietary, 12- / 15-inch, low frequency driver with a 2.5-inch voice coil. Both speakers are biamped and driven by a powerful 1,300 W (peak) Class D amplifier.
The ULT12 generates up to 132 dB SPL, and the ULT15 delivers up to 136 dB SPL. The ULT18 subwoofer is driven by 2,000 W (peak) Class D power and uses a direct radiating, ported enclosure. A proprietary, 18-inch, low frequency transducer with a 4-inch voice coil provides 7 mm of driver travel before over-excursion, reportedly to push more air and provide more “thump.”
