Presonus CDL12P Constant Directivity Loudspeaker - Product Information

The Presonus CDL12P, a lighter weight design than the CDL12, is ideal for touring bands and mobile DJs who want the same scalability and sonic performance in portable design. Constant Directivity Loudspeakers bring the power and ability to fill a space with sound of a line array sound system to s small portable enclosure. This is achieved through a ground breaking design featuring eight 2-inch drivers aligned in a segmented circular-arc centered in front of a 12-inch woofer. The result is Constant Directivity or clear natural music reproduction and articulate speech intelligibility from anywhere in the room or on the field. The listener is never off access from the sound system.

Inside the speaker is an integrated Class D PDA-1000 amplifier properly powering the eight 2-inch drivers aligned in a segmented circular-arc high-frequency array centered in front of a 12-inch woofer. The output of the low-frequency driver travels from the same acoustic axis as the high-frequency array, so the dispersion pattern always radiates directly from the center of the CDL12P. This is true whether the CDL12P is used individually on a tripod speaker stand or as part of an acoustically-coupled vertical array with up to six enclosures. Because both the highs and lows emanate from the same point, they arrive at listeners' ears at the exact same time, meaning the CDL12P powered loudspeakers don't create any smearing in their crossover frequencies, ensuring better intelligibility throughout the frequency response range.
