Baton Rouge, LA (October 4, 2016)—PreSonus’ new AIR-series active loudspeakers are shipping, according to the manufacturer. Intended to a compact, lightweight line, the speakers sport 1,200 W of Class D/Class AB power and various digital tuning functions across the family of three full-range loudspeakers and two subwoofers.
The AIR10, AIR12, and AIR15 full-range systems feature 10-, 12-, and 15-inch low-frequency transducers, respectively. All three full-range models are driven by both Class D and Class A/B amplifier designs. A Class D amplifier drives the low-frequency driver, providing 500 continuous watts of power for low end, while a 200 W (continuous), Class A/B amplifier powers the high-frequency driver.
The 1,200 W AIR15s and AIR18s active subwoofers provide bottom end down to 35 Hz. Although designed for the AIR-series full-range loudspeakers, AIR-series subwoofers can be used with other loudspeakers and include a variable lowpass filter. Presets for the AIR10, AIR12, and AIR15 allow users to dial in a three-way AIR system without an external crossover.
Meanwhile, the AIR full-range loudspeakers can be used as front-of-house mains, monitor wedges, music playback and more. The full-range speakers’ molded plastic, multi-angle enclosure sports nonskid rubber feet on the bottom for upright front-of-house use and on one side for stage monitor applications. AIR subwoofers offer a birch enclosure.
