dBTechnologies extends Its professional range at PL+S 2012
The upgraded Opera DX line is billed as the next chapter of the celebrated Opera series' 12-year success story. Opera DX benefits from the latest available technology, and has been augmented with in-house developed digipro G2 power amps and more state-of-the-arttechnology to improve overall performance.
Italian loudspeaker manufacturer dBTechnologies unveiled a selection of new and augmented professional audio products at Prolight + Sound
2012, Frankfurt. Throughout the show, and for the first time at Frankfurt, DBTechnologies and cousin Brand RCF demonstrated a range of their gear on an outdoor truck, with dBTechologies showcasing the new subwoofers from the professional range together with a sizeable DVA T12 system.
The brand new Sigma speaker line offers PA hire companies, musicians and DJs professional sound and reliability. Engineered for portability, the affordable range is designed to easy to set up.
Light but still rugged, the Sigma range is made from dBTechnologies H.E.T. (Hybrid Enclosure Technology) multi-plywood with a scratch-resistant coating. The series comprises three units: S115, S215 and S118 Sub. Inside each one is the digipro G2 power amp which was developed specifically for use in very compact active systems, whilst the integrated digital sound processor has a variety of signal processing presets to help put the final touches to the sound with the minimum of fuss.
The Cromo+ series is an entry-level speaker line with enhanced digipack digital amplifiers providing efficiency, and an integrated digital sound processor (DSP) ensuring accurate sound calibration of individual speaker components - offering features rarely found in this price range. Comprising four modules, the smallest being Cromo 8+ with 8” woofer and 300W, and now including the largest Cromo 15+ which is loaded with a 15” woofer and 600W of power, the range features compact multifunctional housing, asymmetrical CD horns and a microphone input on XLR as well as jack sockets.
Two new subwoofers were also launched. SUB 28 D is an active 2 x 8” subwoofer engineered to provide low-end reinforcement for dBTechnologies L and K Series speakers, and thanks to its light, lean design and pole mountability it can be used in venues where space is an issue.
SUB 808 D is an 800W, competitively priced 18” subwoofer which can be combined with Cromo, Opera and even FlexSys. With its built-in digital stereo x-over (DSP) and switchable cutoff frequency, phase reverse switch and integrated control features, it delivers a low-ranging bass foundation to provide low-end support matching 12” and 15” speaker systems.
The L160 D compact active speaker succeeds the popular L160, exhibiting all the benefits of two 5" phase-corrected loudspeaker, low weight and high sound pressure levels, now with improved digital technology.
The subwoofers were announced to be shipping in May 2012. Other new releases available late summer 2012.
