New York, NY (October 10, 2016)—d&b audiotechnik has introduced its new 24S and 24S-D point source loudspeakers to its established xS-Series. They are intended for permanent installation in sites such as night clubs, live performance venues, houses of worship, sports venues and more.
Differing only in horizontal dispersion, with 75° x 45° and 110° x 45° (h x v) respectively, the 24S and 24S-D house two 12” LF drivers in a dipolar arrangement and a single horn-loaded 1.4” exit compression driver. This HF horn is rotatable, meaning the 24S/24S-D can be mounted either vertically or horizontally.
By separating the LF drivers, they reportedly achieve constant directivity control in the same plane as the dipole down to approximately 500 Hz. The speakers provide a frequency response extending from 55 Hz to 18 kHz.
For applications with bass heavy program material, the new 21S-SUB provides additional low end support from a small footprint. Housing a single 21” driver in a bass-reflex design, the 21S-SUB can be operated in standard mode, to produce a frequency response of 35 Hz to 105 Hz, or as a supplement to other d&b subwoofers in INFRA mode, extending the LF performance to 33 Hz with an upper limit of 85 Hz.
In combination with the installation specific d&b amplifier, 30D, the 24S, 24S-D and 21S-SUB produce 138 dB SPL, 137 dB SPL, and 134 dB SPL respectively.
