New York, NY (September 3, 2014)—d&b audiotechnik’s new Y-Series loudspeakers, designed for small to medium-sized applications, are now available.
The Y Series consists of the Y7P and Y10P loudspeakers which cover point source duties, with the B6-SUB providing extended frequency response, two line source loudspeakers and a matched cardioid subwoofer, the Y8, Y12 and Y-SUB tackle line array tasks. The Y series also utilizing d&b's patented three point rigging.
The Y7P and Y10P loudspeakers share the same dipolar 8-inch driver arrangement centered on a 1.4-inch compression driver fitted to a rotatable CD horn, facilitating deployment horizontally or vertically. The Y7P and Y10P offer various deployment options, individually as a full range system or in combination with other elements from the Y-Series, either ground stacked or flown. Their port design delivers extended LF performance down to 59 Hz. The B6-SUB compliments the Y7P and Y10P, with a single 18" driver built into a bass-reflex design, extending the frequency response down to 37 Hz.
The Y8 and Y12 loudspeakers are compact and utilize the same rigging design as their bigger brothers from the J and V-Series. The Y8 and Y12 can be suspended in columns of up to 24 loudspeakers with splay angles from 0 to 14 degrees with a 1-degree resolution. The Y-SUB houses a forward facing 18-inch driver and a 12-inch driver radiating towards the rear, producing a cardioid dispersion pattern.
Driven by a single amplifier channel, the compact Y-SUB can be ground stacked or flown at the top of a Y8 / Y12 array. Both the point source and line source loudspeakers feature two 8-inch drivers with neodymium magnets mounted in a dipolar arrangement around a 1.4-inch compression driver.
The Y-Series assimilates into the d&b workflow comprising the ArrayCalc simulation software, the R1 Remote control software and d&b amplifiers.
