Manheim, PA (December 6, 2017)—Clair Brothers has added to its One Series 12- and 15-inch coaxial stage monitor with a self-powered version of the 1.5AM monitor called the 1.5AM+.
The 1.5AM+’s internal, factory-programmed DSP loudspeaker processing gives users Xover, EQ, Limiter and a total of four preset options, including two ‘12AM Emulation Mode’ preset options (32 dB gain or 38 dB gain), providing similar frequency response voicing and low-frequency phase response to the long-established 12AM monitor model. The two remaining presets are options designed for low-frequency optimization on stage as the 1.5AM+ may be coupled with other two-way monitors or with stage subwoofers. The “Mon A” preset offers a two-way phase vs. frequency characteristic, while the “Mon B” preset includes an all-pass filter that aligns the low-frequency phase response with subwoofers across the lowest octaves.
The 1.5AM+ contains an amplifier module made exclusively for Clair by Powersoft, which allows users to power a passive (non-powered) 1.5AM with a slave output. The integrated amp delivers two-channel (1600 W each) 3200 W total power.
The 1.5AM+ offers a coaxial design and a proprietary high-frequency rotatable horn (40°H x 60°V standard dispersion) carved from Baltic birch. Flush-mounted side handles aid portability. Custom cabling for systems is available and can be pre-wired, labeled and delivered in road cases.
