Baton Rouge, LA (January 27, 2017)—At the NAMM Show, PreSonus shipped the ULT10, the newest model in the company’s ULT line of active loudspeakers.
Intended for both mobile use and permanent installations, the ULT10
features a proprietary, rotatable Pivot X110 horn and a proprietary, 10-inch, low-frequency driver with a 2.5-inch voice coil. The system is biamped and driven by a 1,300 W (peak) Class D amplifier, generating up to 130 dB SPL, and boasts a frequency response of 60 Hz to 18 kHz (-3 dB).
PreSonus’ proprietary Pivot X110 constant-directivity, rotatable horn combines horizontal coverage (110°) for broad coverage with focused vertical dispersion (50°). The Pivot X110 horn’s large size (11 x 11 inches) reportedly enables it to control the dispersion pattern lower in the frequency range than smaller conventional horns.
The Pivot X110 horn can be rotated 90˚, so the ULT10 enclosure can be mounted in a horizontal configuration while still maintaining its 110˚ x 50˚ coverage pattern. PreSonus posits the ULT10 as a center-channel speaker for an LCR system or an under-balcony fill, or for floor monitor use.
Units have two combo XLR and 1/4-inch TRS inputs: a mic/line input with PreSonus’ XMAX mic preamp and a line-level-only input. The inputs have independent level control, allowing up to two audio sources to be mixed internally and summed to a balanced XLR output for "daisy-chaining" multiple units. A separate direct output for the line input channel provides additional flexibility.
