The new Q-Series of loudspeakers from d&b audiotechnik uses a variety of technologies—conventional rotatable CD horns, dipolar driver arrangements, low compression vented designs with high excursion drivers, and toroidal wave shaping devices--all integrated together using line array principals. The application scope ranges from single loudspeakers right through to larger multiple cabinet arrays in locations which all share the same fundamental requirements: acoustical and mechanical compatibility to achieve precise control of directivity and maintain this to the lowest possible frequency. Ideally suited to situations where multiple open microphones are used and considerable gain before feedback is an absolute requirement, it is especially appropriate for live theatre and orchestral shows. The Q-Series has a full range of specially designed rigging fittings to allow quick and simple deployment in all applications, whether ground supported or thrown, while the use of neodymium magnets in the driver assemblies increases the ratio of weight against output to higher levels.
