The A-Series combines the best elements of existing d&b system technology to create an entirely new loudspeaker concept. Bending the rules of what a sound system can do, while maintaining the familiar d&b focus on directivity and system unity.
In short, the A-Series is a unification of technologies that sits comfortably in the gap once filled with compromises. This approach to sound reinforcement comes from a different angle.
The A-Series has coverage covered. This is achieved through variable splay angles that allow dispersion adjustments in five degree increments from -10° to +10°. Narrow or broad coverage, horizontal arrays or vertical: sound is directed only to where it should be and no further.
The A-Series establishes a new concept: the augmented array.
Arrays of up to four A-Series loudspeakers adapt precisely to venue shapes in fine increments using variable splay angles. Broad distribution is achieved either horizontally or vertically with a minimal number of loudspeakers. Coherent high frequency dispersion is maintained through sophisticated waveguide design, any way it’s splayed.
In keeping with the spirit of new concepts, the A-Series includes a new acoustic refinement approach: Midrange Directivity Control.
This function uses fewer amplifier channels than ArrayProcessing, while keeping midrange directivity symmetrical at every possible splay angle. Simply designate each loudspeaker within an augmented array as either an ‘In’ for inner cabinets, or ‘Out’ for outer cabinets. Midrange Directivity Control ensures that the critical vocal range is crystal clear. A simple click and it’s set.
