d&b audiotechnik Introduces New A-Series



The all new A-Series introduces a unique loudspeaker concept that sees advanced waveguide design combined with d&b enabling technologies - it questions everything. With flexible splay angles, this system addresses a wide range of medium size applications where the highest levels of coverage flexibility are paramount.

Realizing all the adaptability of a point source cluster with the extensive control options of a d&b line array, the system comprises the AL60 and AL90 loudspeakers, with ALi60 and ALi90 offering cabinets designed specifically for permanent installation.

Both loudspeakers share a passive two-way design featuring one 1.4" exit HF compression driver with a 3" diaphragm mounted to a wave shaping device, and two 10" neodymium LF drivers. The combination of sophisticated waveguide design and the symmetrical dipolar arrangement of the LF drivers allows a smooth overlap of the adjacent frequency bands in the crossover design. The wave segments of each cabinet couple without gaps and sum up coherently.

Using the appropriate frame, up to four AL60/AL90 loudspeakers can be flown either in vertical columns or in horizontal clusters. Variable splay angles between adjacent cabinets can be set from 20-degree to 40-degree in 5-degree increments, allowing the finest of adjustments and ensuring sound is directed precisely where it's wanted and nowhere else.

With its 60-degree horizontal directivity pattern the AL60/ALi60 can be maintained down to approximately 550Hz, while its output capability can cover a distance of up to 30m depending on climatic conditions. The AL90/ALi90 - with its 90-degree horizontal pattern control down to 370Hz -- is both sonically and mechanically compatible, ensuring the same optimal acoustic result is achieved consistently anywhere, at any angle -- whatever the configuration.

Constructed from marine plywood, the AL-Series cabinets have an impact and weather protected PCP (Polyurea Cabinet Protection) finish.

The companionable four channel 30D and D80 amplifiers provides extensive user-definable equalization containing two 16-band equalizers with parametric, notch, shelving, and asymmetric filters as well as delay capabilities of up to ten seconds.

It's always been the d&b approach to build integrated sound reinforcement systems that are actually more than the combination of parts. 2019's A-Series expands this idea even further, stretching loudspeaker capability beyond flexible. Like all d&b systems, A-Series fully integrates with the internationally adopted d&b Workflow, unlocking its full potential through streamlined system design and optimization, control, and monitoring.
