Dynacord launches vertical array cabinet and 4 subs

AUTHOR: Inavate

Dynacord has launched a full-range vertical array cabinet alongside two powered and two passive subwoofers.

The TS 400 is a compact, powerful, and versatile loudspeaker system for mobile applications and fixed installations.

It can be used either full-range or in active two-way systems for applications requiring subwoofers, where Dynacord PSD 215 and PSD 218 powered subwoofers make suitable companions.

The TS 400’s 2.5-way design places elements at both ends of the speaker column to maximise the distance between them.

MF- and HF-elements are placed in the middle of the column for a smooth transition between the different frequency areas and to achieve further control over the radiation pattern. Each group of elements has its own band-pass filter, to optimise the array’s performance and attenuation 90° off-axis.

The directivity of the array is designed to ensure the SPL falls off by only 3 dB each time the distance doubles.

The PSD 215 (1 x 15") and PSD 218 (1 x 18") are high-powered active subwoofers. Each is equipped with an integrated two-channel power amplifier and 24-bit one-into-three DSP controller boasting 48-bit double-precision internal resolution.

PSD 215 incorporates a 15" Electro-Voice DVX3159 woofer specially developed for use in compact subwoofers. Its larger brother, the PSD 218, is equipped with an 18" Electro-Voice DVX3180 long-excursion chassis.

Both models are armed with a dual-channel Class D amplifier with a nominal output of 2 x 1,000 watts RMS into 4 ohms.

The PSE 215 and PSE 218 are the passive versions of the PSD subs. They share the same dimensions, transducer configurations, and acoustic characteristics as their powered cousins.
