d&b audiotechnik release new ‘White Range’

04 May 2011

For those who discovered that X really did mark the spot for d&b audiotechnik at this year’s Frankfurt Pro Light and Sound exhibition there was certainly a large selection of new products to behold.

The stand welcomed many visitors to the launch of their two new product Series; the xS and xA-Series that comprise stand-alone and arrayable loudspeakers respectively. These new products are known as the White range to differentiate them from the more established d&b products which are now known as the Black range. The White range is designed for visual, physical, acoustical and electrical integration into permanently installed applications and is intended for environments that go beyond the rider driven specifications that are generally used in performance spaces.

The xS-Series comprises seven stand-alone loudspeakers and three matching subwoofers and are spread over a broad range of sizes and output powers. The xA-Series comprises four loudspeakers and two matching subwoofers and are arrayable. The latter are equipped with integrated rigging for the design of vertical point source or line arrays providing application specific dispersion and coverage characteristics. Having rotatable horns, discreet rigging hardware as well as a weather resistant or special colour option, these systems maximise the deployment possibilities whether indoors or outdoors.

Both Series are supported by a selection of dedicated subwoofers which includes a passive cardioid design utilising the d&b patented PSP (Plywood Signal Processing) technology that avoids unwanted energy behind the system using only a single amplifier channel. They can be driven by either the d&b D6 or D12 amplifiers that along with the d&b Remote network enable control and monitoring of a large number of system functions with the R1 Remote control software or integration into other media environments.
