d&b launches Y-Series speaker range
d&b audiotechnik has unveiled its Y-Series speaker range at Sound & Light in Lucerne.
The Y-Series consists of the Y7P and Y10P point source and the Y8 and Y12 line array modules that each feature two 8" drivers with neodymium magnets mounted in a dipolar arrangement around a 1.4" compression driver. All models are passively crossed over, keeping amplifier channels to a minimum.
The Y-Series line array modules bear more than a passing resemblance to their larger cousins, the V and J-Series. All three Series have the same rigging design in common, while the new Y8 and Y12 share the familiar 80° and 120° horizontal dispersion characteristics, with horizontal dispersion control down to 500 Hz.
