Music has long been recognised as one of the best ways
to entertain and distract people from the cares of everyday life. Engineer Werner Pinternagel would have been
well aware of this when in 1945 he founded a radio repair
workshop in the Bavarian town of Pilsting.
Indeed, the Thuringia-born and raised visionary was busy
from the outset, which prompted him to expand his horizons and test out new theories. Within a year,
Pinternagel started to experiment with amplifier engineering - which makes the company one of the world’s oldest
designing manufacturers in this market segment. Early
results were the KI cinema amplifier offering an output
capacity of 25 watts. Providing work for just four employees, the company meanwhile moved to Landau and their
appliances carried the trademark "Dynaphon". In 1948
the growing number of customers bought the first portable mixing amplifiers, which by then already carried the
name DYNACORD. This brand - a combination of the
syllables "Dyna" (from "dynamic") and "cord" (building
the link to musicality) - quickly turned out to be prophetic.
Within just a few years, the rapidly expanding company
became one of the world’s leading enterprises in the still
young field of audio electronics engineering.
In 1954 the handicraft company had been transformed
into a small industrial enterprise, which showed its highperformance, trend-setting and often visionary products
at every international fair of importance, a move which
enabled Dynacord to establish a significant export market
from the outset.
In order to satisfy the increasing demand, DYNACORD
moved to Straubing in 1958. At that time, the company
employed 80 people, and was growing rapidly. In 1986,
after reconstructing and expanding the company premises several times over the years, DYNACORD moved in
at their new headquarters where today more than 500
employees work in R&D, production and worldwide distribution of our products.
Milestones - Chronicle of our Success
Looking into the company’s reference archives reveals
that virtually every top-selling artist or act wanted to perform with the legendary "Sound by DYNACORD": Tom
Jones, Donovan, James Last, ... (the list goes on and
on). They all celebrated their greatest successes using
DYNACORD-equipment. Representing the immense
repertoire of the rapidly growing array of products, which
includes many milestones in the history of professional
audio gear, here are some of our worldwide recognised
innovations.
• DRS 78 (gold medal for the stereo reverberation
system, ‘78)
• "Echocord" (at that time the ultimate reverb and
delay unit, 1959)
• COBRA (2002, the first stackable Compact Line
Array System)
• "Bassking" (the style-coining bass amp, 1963)
• The new PowerMate (2004)
• "Eminent" (the legendary mixing amp, 1962)
• "Echocord-Mini" (built in the years 1966 – 1980,
sold over 26,000 times)
• "Gigant" (high-performance mixing amplifier)
• DRP 20 (top-class digital 32-bit floating point
reverberation system)
• ADD One (Advanced Digital Drums)
• P- and Xa-Systeme (Plug & Play, Processor
Controlled Audio Systems)
• PowerMate (1997, sold over 50,000 times by far)
Innovation up to the highest degree, a distinct amount of
user-friendliness and the meanwhile proverbial dependability define the brand name DYNACORD.
We will do our best to keep it that way ....
Quality Made in Germany
why do many customers stick with DYNACORD?
•
Next to outstanding quality, one good reason is the extraordinary reliability of
our products.
•
Prerequisite therefore are the process-accompanying quality measures,
which, next to the production flow also span over a product’s entire life-cycle.
All in all, quality and dependability are already implanted during the design
and development of a device.
•
Quality-assurance starts as early as in the stage of development, where
“thermal stability”, “circuit security“ and quality requirements, like the acoustic
performance, are being evaluated and intrinsic functions of the product are
meticulously tested for being defined in the design.
Simulating the later use of our products under varying climatic conditions for
instance, is arranged employing advanced air conditioning technology.
• The further the development of a new product proceeds, the more rigorous
becomes testing.
Comprehensive production-accompanying examination, which is executed on
inspection stations that are specifically designed for batch testing, ensure that
variation from specified designs is impossible.
Our design and development team keeps up a continuous dialog with our specialized manufacturer of test equipment to achieve the highest possible degree of
effective realisation in building these inspection stations.
All of this and the sum of additional quality assuring measures lead to the fact that
our products offer the dependability and consequential low failure rate that the
trademark “Quality – Made in Germany” is a synonym for until today.

PowerMate 1000
The PowerMate has long been regarded as
the epitome of a powered mixer, offering
uncompromised professional quality in every
department: professional components, professional features, professional reliability.
With well over 50,000 units already sold, the
PowerMate is one of the most important products
in the pro audio sector — not just the biggest selling but
undisputedly the best product of its kind on the market. It’s the
Formula One of power mixers, so it’s hardly surprising that the PowerMate has
won numerous awards and come out on top in countless comparative tests. But aside from
its quality, it’s the fact that it matches perfectly the needs of its users that makes the PowerMate the outstanding solution for a wide range of professional sound reinforcement applications.Now, after six extraordinarily successful years, the PowerMate has undergone a metamorphosis from which it emerges, more powerful, more
fully-featured, and more elegant than ever before: the Power and the Beauty.
What makes a PowerMate a PowerMate?
All the function groups of the PowerMate are 100% professional in terms of their design and specification.
First comes the mixing section, where you will find high-quality, discrete microphone preamps, new, dustproof ALPS
faders (specially developed for the PowerMate) with very high attenuation even in the HF range, 48V phantom power
switchable to the channels in groups of six and a dynamic range that would put most dedicated professional mixers
to shame. AUX 3+4 are separately switchable pre/post fader.
PRO MIXING
PRO POWER
PRO EFFECTS
Then come the ultra-efficient Class H power amplifiers, which now deliver 2 x
700 W into 4 Ohms (PM 1000 and 1600).
They are equipped with dynamic limiters, an extensive range of protections and
the patented LPN filter for clearly improved bass performance.
Finally in the effects section, the two digital effects processors offer 99 studio
quality presets each and are individually foot-switchable.
On top of these, there are many other useful features designed to solve special problems, such as the two feedback
filters, the vocal voicing filter and the standby switch.
This is a powered mixer that can also be used as a pure mixer, with power amplifiers every bit as good as dedicated 19” concert sound amplifiers, and studio quality effects specially optimised for live performance. Housed in a
robust case with a sturdy metal lid, the PowerMate is manufactured in Germany to the
highest standards. Nothing else sounds like it. Nothing else performs like it. And nothing is as reliable.

PowerMate 1600
Pro-Mixing
The discrete microphone
preamps of the new
PowerMate 1000 and
PowerMate 1600 combine
outstanding audio quality
with extremely low noise and distortion, setting new standards in professional mixing technology. Ergonomically designed gain
controls with a range of 60 dB, group-switchable phantom power,
vocal voicing filters, 3-band EQ with semiparametric mids, four aux sends,
PFL, Mute, dust-proof ALPS faders, 2 x 7-band graphic EQs, feedback filters and four stereo channels are just some of the other professional features.
Pro-Power
The integrated high-efficiency Class H power amplifiers deliver an impressive 2 x 700 watts into 4 ohms and an absolutely safe 2 x 870 watts into 2.66
ohms with comparatively little heat build-up. All the protective circuits with
which the Dynacord 19” amplfiers are equipped are present here, including
protections against overheating, short-circuits and DC voltage and HF and
back EMF protection. The flow of current at power up is limited and there is
a short delay before power is switched to the loudspeaker outputs. An LPN
filter and a super-fast dynamic audio limiter are further Dynacord-typical
features
Pro-Effects
Two parallel and individually controlled 24-bit stereo digital effects devices
with 48-bit algorithms offer a total of 2 x 99 live-optimised presets in studio
quality. User-friendly Up/Down keys are used to select between room
reverb, plate reverb, echo reverb, chorus reverb, mono/stereo delay, modulated delay effects (like chorus and flanger) and a large number of other
special effects. Your preferred starting presets can
be stored in program mode so as to be
instantly available next time you
switch on the device. The effects
returns can be switched into
or out of the signal path
using
either
one
footswitch for both of
the
integrated
effects devices or a
separate footswitch
for each.

DSP244
Providing 48-bit algorithms, 24-bit AD/DA conversion and a dynamic range that exceeds 115 dB, the DSP 244 sets
new standards in digital loudspeaker controlling and loudspeaker signal processing.
11
Universal „“Tool-Box”
Reliable Operation
Its 2-in-4-design and a dynamic range that exceeds
115dB, the DSP244 is the ideal controller and manager in any active 2-, 3- or 4-way audio system installation. The freely configurable routing allows assigning a
single input or the summed signal of both inputs to
each of the 4 outputs.
Together with its extensive filtering capabilities, which
can also be applied to the input signals, the DSP244
represents the convincing toolbox for the classical
mana-gement of any loudspeaker system set-up.
Whether in theatres or concert halls and no matter if
used in mobile or fixed installations, the DSP244
represents always the optimum solution.
Comprehensive controls and a large-scale graphic
display (120 x 32 dots) ensure convenient editing and
control over all parameters. The status-LEDs in each
output continuously indicate the momentary configuration of the corresponding channel (sub, low, mid, hi or
full range). Backlit muting switches, convenient rotary
controls and a 5-segment LED-chain allow ”hardwarebased“ controlling the outputs. In addition to the 50
Dynacord loudspeaker system configuration presets, it
is possible to store 30 user presets. The DSP244’s
locking function offers convenient protection against
unallowed operation.
Comprehensive Signal Processing
Optional Extensions
Each input signal can be affected by 5 EQ-filters that
can be individually utilized as parametric EQs, Lo/Hishelving EQs or Lo/Hi-Cuts. It is possible to divide and
assign the maximum overall delay time of 5.4 sec. to
either input signal, the summed signal or to all 4 outputs.
Each output provides separate Hi- and Lo-Pass filters,
offering the choice between the following characteristics: Linkwitz-Riley, Butterworth or Bessel filters (6,
12, 18, 24 dB/oct. slope). Each output channel offers
4 additional filters, which can be configured as parametric EQs, Lo/Hi-shelving EQs, Lo/Hi-Cuts but also
as All-Pass filters. Next to matching output level and
polarity, each output is con-trolled by a compressor/
limiter with editable threshold, attack and release
times.
The DSP244 comes with RS-232 and a complete
MIDI-interface. The latter allows linking up to sixteen
DSP244s and to easily save and load presets. The
RS-232 interface provides the possibility to remote
control and configure the DSP244 via supplied PC editing software program (WIN95/98/NT/WIN2K).
Additionally, these interfaces also allow installing new
software and presets.
Optionally available for retrofitting are a RS-485 interface or control inputs which allow to remotely control
program changes and mute commands.

CrossMax Controller Software
The CrossMax software is a unique audio-tool for creating DSP244 preset-configurations, offering clear
graphic indica-tion of all utilized filter, delay and level
parameters and additionally allows integrating acoustic frequency and phase responses for the controlled
DYNACORD loudspeaker system per output. These
“sheer” component-values result from DYNACORD’s
own free-field measurements, without any room acoustics influence. CrossMax calculates the complex sum
of the actual filter, level and delay parameters in relation to the original speaker data. Thus, not only that
the filter parameters are presented on the screen, but,
for the first time ever in real-time, the acoustic frequency response of the controlled speaker system is
also displayed; any minor change in a filter’s or delay’s setting becomes instantly visible and audible. Even
though the desired combination is not included, being
one of the 50 factory presets, loudspeaker presets are
of course available for any current DYNACORD speaker system.
CrossMax – a network for controlling 124 outputs
In combination with the RS-485 option, the CrossMax
also allows controlling and monitoring complex, largescale loud-speaker systems. Next to displaying all
parameters and the frequency response of a DYNACORD speaker system, input and output levels plus
compressor and limiter thresholds of all DSP244s are
indicated in real-time as well – total control of up to
124 controller outputs.
Block Diagram Indication
Most editable DSP244 parameters are clearly displayed in a block diagram. Following the input level indication are five in-dividual filters per input, which can
be used as Hi- or Lo-Pass (6dB/12dB-Peaking), Hi- or
Lo-Shelving (6/12dB-LPN), or fully parametric EQs.
The Master-Delay offers delay times till up to 900 ms.
The summed signal of the two inputs is handled as virtual third input and has its own delay time setting. The
flexible routing allows assigning any input signal,
including the sum-signal to each output. Four filters
are provided for each output. A se-lectable All-Pass filter for matching group delay times that occur with
overlapping frequency bands complements the filters
of the Master-EQ. Following the crossovers (Hi- and
Lo-Pass filters per output, each) and the output delay is
a discrete compressor and a limiter for changing the
audio signal’s dynamic, which provides additional overload-protection for the connected loudspeaker components. Output level indication is provided in real-time –
equivalent to the editor – while level control and mutefunction complete the user interface.
Clearly Structured Configuration
Next to versatility, it is especially the easy and reliable
handling that is vital for a software product’s success.
In network operation (RS-485), the user can choose
from two screen-modes. Live mode provides display
of all units with their relevant level indication. Output
levels and mute-func-tion can be adjusted, likewise to
the functionality that an appliance installed in a siderack shelf would offer. All other functions, like altering
parameters or loading different presets are only available in the password-protected "Set-Up" mode.
13
Speaker SPL
To be able to display the sonic frequency response of the entire system, allocating the data records (phase and frequency response) of the connected
speaker systems to their individual outputs is necessary.
On a similar page it is also possible to assign the data for the employed
DYNACORD power amps. CrossMax displays the actual sonic performance
of a loudspeaker system in real-time, without characteristic spatial influence
and in dependence to all used DSP244 parameters. This indication is exclusively provided for DYNACORD speaker systems, offering a unique way to be
one hundred percent sure of optimally using the digital filters.
Filter Functions
Clear and comprehensive display of filter function per output channel including master and channel EQs is provided. The resolution can be changed
from +/- 12 dB to +/- 24 dB or +/- 48 dB. Displaying phase and frequency
responses and fading out loudspeaker outputs that are not included in the
overall system is also possible. Adding the sonic data of loud-speaker
systems and power amps to the electrical transfer function reveals the sound
system’s actual sonic performance. Any parameter change is immediately
visible and audible, while spatial independence represents the major advantage of display mode.
CrossMax is the only editor software that is capable of displaying the frequency response of a DYNACORD speaker system in real-time – exactly the
way, the system would behave in the free-field. Any parameter change, like
volume, filters, or delay times is immediately indicated: even complex set-ups
can be easily accomplished. Fine-adjustments “on the spot” are mostly reduced to +/- 1dB for each frequency band.
Placement Function
The CrossMax Placement Window offers additional assistance to determine the optimum positioning. All
CrossMax data refers to a speaker’s centre of the front
grille. Different from the real frequency and phase indication, in this case a spherical radiation pattern of low-frequency sonic signals is presumed.
Moving the “listener’s head” on the loudspeaker system
axis results in the display of the heard frequency response at that position. Display of the level distribution for frequencies up to 150 Hz and depending on the actual speaker position is additionally possible.

PowerMax 230
”PowerMax” - a crossover-function that provides improved SPL in the frequency range around the crossover
frequency, making it the ideal solution for systems with relatively compact dimensioned full-range speakers
plus sub woofer.
Meeting the highest requirements of modern audio
applications is only possible when using active multicomponent loudspeaker systems which provide the
possibility to separately amplify and reproduce the
audio signal’s indi-vidual frequency ranges. Active 2way installations with additional sub woofer systems
probably offer the best price/performance ratio. The
low frequency range of the audio signal is reproduced
by the sub woofers while high-quality full-range cabinets take care of the Mid/Hi fre-quencies and vocals.
One essential advantage of active 2-way systems with
additional sub woofers is the fact that the vocals are
not divided between different speaker systems. This,
in return, offers more convenience when adjusting the
sound system. Opposite to active 3- or 4-way configurations, difficult analysing and measuring of sound
fields is unnecessary.
Using individual sub woofer systems for each side is
essential on wider stages. Otherwise, the level differences between bass and treble would result in audible
degrada-tion of the overall sound. Of course, adding a
centrally located sub woofer might additionally
improve the sound quality.
The PowerMax230 Controller has been designed for
use in high-performance installations that employ
active 2-way systems plus sub woofers. Applications
like these also mostly incorporate professional linear
power amplifiers like DYNACORD LINEAR- or STANDARD PRECISION power amps. Installing and operating the PowerMax230 Control-ler is easy as can be,
since the user does not need to know any complex
detail about crossover functions and equalization.
All controls for matching the sound to different
acoustic conditions and loudspeaker systems are
located on the front panel. Difficult tasks - like electronic signal routing and settings for instance - are
automatically carried out inside the appliance. The
PowerMax12 crossover func-tion optimally utilizes
amplifier output power and loud-speaker transmission
capacities. Compared to conventional crossovers or
controllers, this results in an improved overall sound
quality, which is achieved with less effort.
The PowerMax230 Controller is also most suitable for
inte-gration in active 2-way instrument reinforcement
applica-tions for keyboards, E-bass and drums. The
PowerMax12 x-over function eliminates the often
complained about “lack-of-punch-and-definition”, like it
is common for con-ventional active musical instrument
reinforcement systems.
The EQ-section provides additional tools:
The Lo-EQ is an adjustable LPN-filter for controlling
the “punch” while the Mid-EQ’s 4 kHz dip-filter can be
used to reduce the sometimes aggressive sound of a
horn system. The Hi-EQ allows increasing the “clarity”
depen-ding on the desired degree of brilliance.
Its excellent dynamic range of more than 117dB, the
extremely low noise level and the outstanding price/
performance ratio makes the PowerMax230 Controller
an advantageous alternative to conventional
crossover and controller solutions – even in the critical
field of permanent installation.

Philosophy
Outstanding audio-performance and non-compromise reliability as a
result of DYNACORD’s more than 50 years of engineering experience
and manufacturing excellence.
Buy it. Plug it. Rely on it.
All DYNACORD amplifiers are CE approved and CSA/UL
tested including IEC 65065
All DYNACORD amplifiers are manufactured in the ISO 9001 certified factory in Straubing, Germany.
All DYNACORD amplifiers feature 36 months of warranty.
Basic Features
Generously dimensioned power supplies making for 30% headroom
on top of rated output power for continuous audio program. In addition
complex loads with phase angles up to ± 90° can be driven without
problem.
Outstanding Audio Performance
Sophisticated Protection Package
Unique Dynamic Limiter
All amps are equipped with inrush-current-limiters and power-on-delay.
Relays at the power outputs keep the speakers disconnected during
power up and in case that any of the most complete and reliable protection circuits is activated.
Most of the competitive amplifiers do not feature onboard limiters. Other
provide threshold triggered limiters with cause audible compression
effects.
Dynamic Limiter
DYNACORD amplifiers constantly monitor the input- versus the outputsignal by means of super-fast audio processors (APC = Audio
Processor Control). In case of non-linear operation APC sends control
parameters to the limiters.
The APC controlled limiters are operating dynamically and do not affect
the amplifiers dynamic capabilities as they control the input gain level.
So even to/beyond the limits DYNACORD amplifiers will keep their
dynamics and will thus not affect the sound, clarity and transparency in
audio performance.
In ‘cooperation‘ with the 30% headroom of the power-supply the dynamic limiters make for unrivalled dynamic performance.
19
Thermal Overhead Protection
Temperature sense for both, power transistors and transformer(s). Front-to-rear cooling system by means of extremely
quiet 3-speed fans.
Peak Current Limiters
keep the amplifier reliably within
safe operating conditions. In addition they activate the dynamic audio
limiters in case that the peak current
threshold is exceeded and thus keep
the signal fed into the speakers at a level of maximum 1% THD. This protects
the speakers from being blown due to clipping amplifier signal.
DC-Protection
DC voltage at the output will kill the connected speaker’s voice coils. All
DYNACORD amplifiers feature reliable DC protection.
High Frequency Protection
High frequencies, significantly exceeding the human audio spectrum may
damage the connected speaker’s voice coils. All DYNACORD amplifiers are
equipped with reliable HF protection circuits.
Short Circuit Protection
A short circuit in the speaker cable or the speaker itself may damage the
power transistor of the amplifier. All DYNACORD amplifiers are equipped with
respective short circuit protections that reliably protect the amplifier even
under full load or in bridged operation.
Back EMF-Protection
By nature of physics loudspeaker systems represent a complex reactive
load and feed a significant portion of the energy back into the amplifier.
This EMF {Electro Motive Force} phenomenon is permanently existing
regardless the type or brand of the amplifier and speaker. In the standard
situations where the speaker cabinets work properly. The EMF-phenomenon does not cause any damage to the amplifier. In case of a faulty speaker or crossover however, the amount of energy fed back into the amplifier
may significantly exceed normal levels resulting in damage of the amplifiers power transistors.
All DYNACORD power amplifiers are equipped with a unique back-EMF
protection that reliably protects the amplifier against such conditions even
in case of cabling faults when somebody i.e. connects output A with output
B by mistake.
20
For decades, DYNACORD has been one
of the leading manufacturers in the pro audio sector and has
established a secure position in the amplifier market thanks to the excellent audio
performance,absolute reliability and high stability of the Linear Precision series .With their outstanding operational security,which guarantees years of problem-free use,the amplifiers of the Linear Precision series are now the standard for
a wide variety of full-range and multi-way loudspeakers systems in professional venues as diverse as theatres,stadiums,discotheques, clubs and concert halls.
SWITCHMODE TECHNOLOGY
With the LX 2200, DYNACORD is introducing a new class of professional high-end amplifiers:the Switch Mode
Precision series .The combination of an analogue class-H design with a state-of-the-art switching power supply has
made possible the creation of a professional power amplifier, delivering 2 x 1600 watts into 2 ohms and excellent audio
specifications, that weighs only 8.15 kg .With an output rated at 2 x 1100 into 4 ohms or 2 x 600 watts into 8 ohms, the
LX 2200 is the ideal power amplifier for a multitude of high-power fullrange enclosures. Even complex loads as low as
2 ohms can be driven with absolute reliability. Thanks to its weight of only 8.15 kg, racks containing several LX 2200
units for active multi-way use are easy to transport. Gone for ever are the days of cumbersome amp racks.
CLASS - H TECHNOLOGY
With this technology,two different power supply rails are permanently available internally to the power amplifier blocks.For most of the program material, the lower is able to reproduce the signal flawlessly. However when there are dynamic peaks,the amplifier switches internally and at high speed to the higher supply voltage. The great advantage of this
technology lies in the fact that for much of the time, the power amplifier blocks are working with the lower supply voltage and the power dissipation is therefore considerably less than with conventional class AB power amplifiers. This also
means considerably less waste heat. A conventional power amplifier design consumes almost twice as much current
and generates twice as much heat as Dynacord ’s CLASS H design. The compact power amplifiers of the Precision
series therefore remain far cooler under extreme conditions.
DYNAMIC LIMITERS
Dynamic limiters are a standard feature of all DYNACORD power amplifiers. High-speed audio processors are continuously comparing the input signal to the output signal — this is called Audio Processor Control (APC)— and in the event of any
non-linearity, the processors send control signals to the limiters,which operate dynamically upon the input level.
As a result, total harmonic distortion is kept to max.1%at all input levels below 21 dBu.

SAFETY PACKAGE
The LX 2200 is equipped with protections against over-heating,overloading,short-circuits,DC and HF as well as a Back-EMF protection.Another
valuable safeguard is provided by the Soft Start relay system — a power--up
delay to protect the power outputs that also limits current flow to eliminate the
risk of blowing a fuse in the mains. At the same time,ultra-fast audio processors continuously compare the output signal with the input signal and send
control parameters to the limiter in the event of any non-linearity.
REAR
The electronically balanced XLR IN /OUT sockets are provided for direct operation with professional mixing consoles and signal processors.Like all the
models in the Compact Linear Precision series (CL 800 /CL 1200 /CL
1600),the LX 2200 is designed for a Constant Gain of 32 dB.The power outputs for Channels A and B are on Speakon connectors.A Ground Lift switch
is also provided to separate the chassis ground from the signal ground in
order to eliminate ground loop hum.

There are two main approaches in designing high-performance power amplifiers: get as many watts as possible
for as little money as necessary or set the designing standards without compromise to the highest achievable
audio per-formance at the threshold of the physically
attainable, en-sure highest reliability and go for the best in
professional audio equipment that today’s technology can
accomplish.
It is doubtless, that combining these two apparently conflicting design-profiles would offer the best solution: due
to their advanced topology, Linear Precision Series power
amps combine excellent audio performance, modern and
innovative circuit design, meticulous and exceptionally
rigid construction, and the highest levels of operational
integrity and reliability with an appropriate and more than
realistic price. So, why pay more for leading edge technology ”Made in Germany”? Well, on the other hand – it
cannot be done for less.
The robust steel chassis provides outstanding torsional
strength through L-shaped side panels reaching under
the thick aluminium front panel. Thermal breakers prevent
the power supply units from being damaged by thermal
over-load. Electronically controlled fans provide sufficient
front-to-rear airflow and a special cool air diverter takes
care of thermal stability. The fans’ noise-level is extremely low which provides the possibility for studio use. If necessary, a supplied air-filter can be mounted behind the
front panel ventilation louvres.

Delayed switching the power outputs during a soft-start is
accomplished via relays and an initial inrush current limiter prevents the mains fuses from being blown.
Extensive protection circuitry includes the relay-switching
of the speaker-terminals in cases of short-circuit and prevent the occurrence of DC or RF at the power outputs. A
selectable Hi-/Lo-Cut filter limits the amplifier’s response
to the audible spectrum, preventing the amplification of
extreme LF and HF out of band signals. Additionally, a
special protection circuit – the Back-EMF Protection –
protects the Linear Precision power amplifiers from
dama-ges resulting from high-level, high-energy feedback
from a faulty loudspeaker system. Comparator circuits
conti-nuously monitor the amplifier’s input and output signals and activate internal limiters whenever a non-linear
opera-tional state is detected. These limiters have
acoustically optimised time constants and can also be
switched to the appropriate speed according to the application they are used in; from FAST (e. g. for use as a
Mid/Hi amplifier) to SLOW (e. g. when driving sub
woofers). This serves as a protection for the connected
loudspeaker systems against overload caused by clipping
in the power amplifier’s output stages.

The new Compact Linear Precision Series power amplifiers combine outstanding audio performance with
maximum reliability and operating security as well as being markedly lighter than equivalent power amplifiers.
Through the use of an optimized power supply with low
dispersion toroidal transformers as well as of Class H
technology, a large amount of headroom above the specified nominal output has been achieved along with a considerable reduction in weight and thermal leakage.
CL Series power amplifiers satisfy all the criteria for
punishing ‘on the road’ use. They are reliably protected
against overheating, overload and short-circuits as well
as high frequency and DC at the output.
The 'soft start' function employs relays to insert a delay
between switching on the device and the activation of the
power outputs. A further circuit limits the current on
power-up, there-by protecting the mains fuses. DYNACORD amplifiers constantly monitor the input- versus the
output- signal by means of super-fast audio processors
which send -in case of non-linear operation- control parameters to the limiters. The limiters are thus operating
dynamically and do not affect the amplifiers dynamic
capabilities as they control the input gain level.
Thermal stability is provided by a 3-stage fan with a very
low noise level. The inputs are electronically balanced
and implemented on XLR connectors, whilst Direct Outs
for looping the signal are also standard.
Input routing permits the choice between Mono and
Stereo modes. Mono bridged mode is also easy to realize thanks to the separate Bridged Out connectors and the
Bridged Mode switch.
25
The level controllers on the front panel are scaled in decibels and implemented as highly precise and rugged
detent potentiometers recessed into the front panel to
protect them from mechanical damage.
The clearly laid out LED display shows the operating condition of the power amplifiers by means of Power, Protect,
Signal and Limit indicators.
The electronically balanced XLR input and output connectors with a sensitivity of +4dBu (1.23V) are designed
for direct operation with professional mixing consoles and
signal processors.
The power outputs for Channels A and B as well as the
Bridged Out are available on reliable Speakon connectors.
There is also a Ground Lift switch on the rear panel to
separate the signal ground from the chassis ground to eliminate ground loops.
All CL power amplifiers can normally be operated with
loads as low as 2 ohms and in bridged mode down to a
minimum of 4 ohms with complete operational security.

Designed as ”working horses” and based on the Linear Precision Series amplifiers, the STANDARD PRECISION
Series power amplifiers’ efficiency and dependability meet the extreme standards of any on-the-road application, offering reliable protection against thermal and capacitive overload, short circuit, and the occurrence of HF
and DC at their outputs.
In addition, special protective circuitry prevents the output-stage transistors from being damaged by Back-EMF.
During power-on, delayed switching of the power amplifiers’ power outputs is accomplished via relays. A limiter
controls the initial current inrush (soft start), preventing
the mains fuses from being blown during power-on operation.
Mechanical construction and manufacturing follow the
industry's highest precision standards. The robust steel
chassis is extremely rigid.
Guaranteeing thermal stability are two 3-Mode (off/
slow/fast) silently running fans that allow using the amplifiers even in sound recording studio environments without
any annoyance.
Extensive comparator circuitry constantly monitors the
input and output signals and activates the internal limiters
whenever a non-linear operational state is encountered.
Thus ensuring reliable protection of the connected loudspeaker systems against overload and clipping.
The sound quality of STANDARD PRECISION SERIES
power amplifiers is absolutely outstanding. Using compre-hensive dimensioned power supply units with lowinter-ference toroidal transformers gains a headroom that
ex-ceeds the nominal power handling capacity by far. No
V/I-Foldback-Limiter circuits are employed within the
power amplifiers, making it possible to operate the amps
on complex loads up to ±90° phase angles without a
problem.
27
The db-calibrated level controls are located on the front
panel. They are provided as detented potentiometers.
The easily readable LED display offers quick optical information on the power amplifiers’ momentary operational
mode.
The display shows for each channel independently,
whether it is operational, a signal is present at the output,
when the limiters are activated, and if one of the numerous protection circuits has been activated.
The input facilities are carried out as balanced XLRF-type
connectors while the Direct-Outs – on which the carriedthrough signals are present – come as XLRM-type connec-tors. Using the Input Routing-switches lets you determine if the STANDARD PRECISION SERIES amplifiers
are opera-ted in DUAL (stereo) or PARALLEL (mon-aural)
mode while "mono-bridged" operation is possible as well.
The power outputs CANNEL A, CHANNEL B and
BRIDGED OUT are provided as Speakon connectors.
Being located on the rear panel as well is a ground-lift
switch that separates the enclosure from the ground
potential of the appliance and therefore helps to eliminate
ground noise loops.
In normal operation all STANDARD PRECISION SERIES
power amplifiers can be used to drive loads down to 2Ω;
in bridged mode the min. load is 4Ω.
All amps are equipped with extremely silent running fans
that provide proper front-to-rear air-flow, guaranteeing the
trouble-free operation even in smaller power amplifier
rack systems.

Whereas the Xa 2600 on the other hand employs an
active Butterworth/Constant-Power-Response-Crossover
making it the perfect choice for driving any horn-loaded
Mid-Hi cabinet plus subwoofer combination.
The heart of any Xa-system, PowerMax system or of a
freely configured 2-way system is one of our 2600 Series
Controller Amps. These power amps provide integrated
active frequency crossovers, all necessary processorcontrolled functions and extensive protection circuitry.
The provided output power is 2 x 700 watts for the LO and
2 x 600 watts for the Hi range.
Both system power amps possess a proprietary equalizer
section, which allows to individually match the subwoofer
level to the top-parts while the 4 kHz Dip-switched EQ
allows the adjustment of several different cabinets to
match varying acoustical environments.
The PM 2600 with integrated PowerMax12 crossover
function has been specially designed for active two-way
operation of compact fullrange cabinets plus subwoofer
delivering impressive results through utilizing both components in the crossover frequency range.

In event sound reinforcement, at rental companies and in professional
Concert Sound applications three different loudspeaker concepts have established themselves as first choice during the recent years. “Horn-Loaded
Systems” with exceptionally high efficiency, “Line-Array Systems” offering
exactly defined dispersion capabilities and universally suitable “Powered
Speaker” cabinets.
1. Horn-Loaded Systems
Especially in the “Rock & Roll” business as with other sound reinforcement applications, where high SPL is most important, horn-loaded systems are still the “First
Choice”. Comb-filter effects, which occur as a result of the suboptimal addition of
individual dispersion when employing several mid-high cabinets, cannot be entirely
eliminated by physical means.
DYNACORD V-SYSTEMS components cover this segment of “High-Power” sound
reinforcement. Consequent use of conical Lo-Mid horns and coaxial Mid-Hi cabinet
speaker design reduces comb-filtering and the product of distortion down to a theoretical minimum, which, when compared to exponential horn systems, results in
significantly improved homogeneous dispersion.
2. Line-Array Systems
Line Arrays have established themselves in the market for ambitious Concert
Sound applications that require top sound quality. Their extremely wide horizontal
coverage pattern and exactly defined narrow vertical pattern control eliminates
undesirable projection towards ceiling and floor and hence interfering reflections.
Conventional Line Arrays are mostly designed for use in “flown“ major PA-systems.
Despite their inherent sound quality advantages, customary Line Arrays therefore
are only infrequently used for small and medium-sized sound reinforcement applications.
With our COBRA-2 and COBRA-4 Compact Line Array systems DYNACORD offers
a praxis-oriented solution for those applications, which cannot be served economically with existing large-format Line Arrays. With the compact and easy to handle
DYNACORD COBRA systems, Line Array performance in “flown“ as well as in
“stacked“ setups becomes also available for a great many of routine “bread & butter” events in typical multi-purpose halls, marquees or municipal open-air concerts.
3. Powered Speakers
An increasing demand for active speaker cabinets with integral controllers and
amplifier sections can be observed in the field of portable PRO-AUDIO applications.
Setting and operation do not necessitate trained personnel and complex power
rating and impedance considerations, like they are necessary with rack-oriented
installations can be omitted. However, up to now, putting up with compromises in
sound quality and SPL was unavoidable, because most commercially available active speakers had been designed for multimedia rather than for PRO-AUDIO applications.
Through uncompromising acoustic and electronic design and the use of high-performance neodymium transducers, DYNACORD MADRAS System cabinets for the
first time provide a quality level that up until now had been reserved for complex,
rack-oriented multi-channel systems with controllers. Acute sound reinforcement
problems, like lacking front- or side-fill, additional channels for monitoring or delay
applications, can be solved quickly and without extensive thought on site.

Philosophy
For ambitious Concert Sound applications Line Arrays have established themselves
during the recent years as first choice. Line Arrays are inherently better suited for highquality sound projection to large, mainly horizontal audience areas than classical narrow-coverage speakers. As a matter of fact, customary Line Arrays are relatively big,
quite heavy, extremely expensive and difficult to set-up. Despite their inherent sound
quality advantages, customary Line Arrays therefore are only infrequently used for
small and medium-sized sound reinforcement applications.
The brand-new DYNACORD COBRA Compact Line Array System is extremely compact, comparably light-weight, easy to set-up and has an excellent price-performance
ratio. So it is now possible to have Line Array Sound Quality for all applications which
cannot be served economically with existing large-format Line Arrays.
The DYNACORD COBRA Compact Line Array System has an extremely wide horizontal coverage due to the cylindrical wave characteristic of the radiated sound without
the annoying comb-filter characteristics of horizontally splayed narrow-angle speakers.
The vertical coverage of the DYNACORD COBRA Compact Line Array System is precisely defined and prevents any pronounced vertical ”side lobes“ which would project
sound energy into the diffuse field through reflections at the ceiling and the floor.

Cobra2 Compact Line Array Active 2 Way
COBRA-2 SYSTEM / COBRA-2 PWH SYSTEM
The COBRA-2 SYSTEM is designed to provide high-quality sound reinforcement for events in small to mediumsized marquees or halls covering distances up to 40
metres and areas in the region of 1,000 square metres.
The COBRA-2 SYSTEM produces a maximum SPL of
137 dB L +137 dB R in the medium-and high frequency
ranges and up to 141 dB in the bass.In its basic configuration, the COBRA-2 SYSTEM consists of four
COBRATOPmidrange/high-frequency enclosures,four
COBRA SUB subwoofers,a ready cabled and programmed 12 U amp rack,the CSR-12, as well as the necessary
4-core loudspeaker cables and a 2.5 °wedge set (comprising a pair of wedges that can be placed at the front or
back of the cabinets) to aim the COBRA TOPs at the
listening area.
The coverage pattern of the COBRA-2 SYSTEM is 120
°in the horizontal plane and 15 °in the vertical. Up to six
COBRA TOPs and six COBRA SUBs can be driven by
the CSR-12 AMP RACK without difficulty.To allow for
expansion of the system,the CSR-12 has room for an
additional 3U power amplifier (sub extension,separate
front-/side-fill or monitor),which gets its current from the
CP-44 connector panel.
The largest sensible configuration of the COBRA-2
SYSTEM consists of one COBRA-2 array per side (four
TOPs and 4-6 SUBs per side).For especially powerful
and penetrating bass reproduction, suitable for a wide
range of types of music and venue, COBRA PWH bass
horns can be integrated into the COBRA-2 SYSTEM
Since doubling the number of COBRA TOP enclosures
halves their vertical radiation angle, special attention
must be paid to the way they are aligned – regardless of
whether they are flown or stacked.
A COBRA TOP has a coverage pattern of 120 °x 30 °
(horizontal and vertical).Two COBRA TOPs stacked
directly on top of one another have a coverage pattern of
120 °x 15 °and four stacked cabinets,120 °x 7.5 °.
With a ground stack, it is easy to aim the TOP cabinets
at the listening area by placing CSW-25 2.5 °wedges
between the SUBs or the PWHs.
AMPRACKS
Both COBRA-2 und COBRA-2 PWH systems can be
ordered with the leight-weight racks CSR-2 LX and CSR2 PWH LX equipped with LX 2200 Amping instead of the

Compact Line Array Active 4 Way
COBRA-4 SYSTEM / COBRA-4 LX SYSTEM
The active 4-way COBRA-4 SYSTEM is designed to project over distances of up to 80 metres in medium-sized
marquees, halls and open-air venues and produces SPLs
at the FOH position,30 metres from the stage,of 110 dB
in the medium-and high-frequency ranges and up to 120
dB in the bass.
Through the use of two COBRA-4 TOPs and a COBRA4 FAR, optimal line-array performance can be achieved
without time-consuming tinkering.
With the COBRA-4 SYSTEM, in the vicinity of the PA, the
vertical coverage angle in the high frequency range is
particularly wide, to cover the areas directly in front of the
stage.To project over long distances,a COBRA-4 FAR,
which has a coverage pattern of 90 °x 5 °in the high frequency range, is positioned at the top of the array.
For the low frequency range and the midrange,the same
components are used as in the COBRA-4 TOP,so the low
and midrange line array continues in an unbroken line.
In all, eight COBRA PWH bass horns are used to generate the sound pressure levels and projection typically
required by Top Forty bands and these can be stacked or
arrayed as dictated by the architecture of the room.
The COBRA-4 SYSTEM is driven by two ready-cabled
and programmed CSR-4 amp racks with a DSP 244 controller, two L2400 power amplifiers and a CP-84 connector panel.

There is an increasing demand for powered loudspeaker cabinets for
universal use in pro audio systems and fixed installations.
TM
Their installation, setting-up and operation can be undertaken by untrained personnel and even extensive active sound reinforcement systems are intuitive and
easy to control.
Systems employing such loudspeakers are also extremely reliable, since every
cabinet contains its own controller and amplifier sections. Elaborate programming and complex load calculations of the kind required by rack-oriented
systems with digital controllers not necessary.
Furthermore, it is possible to react quickly and flexibly to the changing demands
of each location; the transportation headaches associated with large, heavy
racks are also avoided.
Up until now, however, the use of active speakers often involved compromises
in terms of sound quality, sound pressure levels and projection, since most of
the active systems on the market were designed with multimedia rather than pro
audio applications in mind — a fact that is reflected in their electronic and loudspeaker components.
That’s why DYNACORD developed the MADRAS system specifically for high
quality pro audio applications.
Uncompromising acoustic and electronic designs as well as the use of the finest
transducers combine here to achieve a level of quality previously only available
from complex, rack-oriented multi-way systems with their own controllers.

F12
The demands on modern high-performance systems re-garding their long-throw capability, low distortion, and intelligible sound are constantly growing. The introduction of
DYNACORD’s patented Planar Waveguide technology marks a quantum leap in the
field of high-efficiency, direct radiating subwoofer systems.
Typical long-throw systems offer extreme throw on the cost of a comparably small directivity angle, so that several cabinets need to be employed to provide coverage of the
entire audience area. The Conical Waveguide horn F 12 CWH is a very compact
Mid/Hi-component offering an immense SPL and a com-parably wide radiation pattern.
The speaker components are coaxially mounted, which provides a smooth extended
frequency response within the entire radiation range. In the Mid-Bass range works an
ELECTRO-VOICE DL12 ST high-performance transducer mounted on a Conical Wave
guide horn. The high-frequency range above 800 Hz is reproduced by an ELECTROVOICE DH-7 driver, firing into a coaxially mounted 80°x55° wide coverage horn.
F9
The F9CWH is an extremely powerful and yet compact Mid/Hi-cabinet that has been
designed for medium and long-throw applications. The Constant Directivity horn HT94
is coaxially aligned in a conical mid-frequency horn and offers a nominal radiation angle
of 90° x 40°, which provides extremely smooth transmission without distressing interference in the x-over frequency range between the mid and high-frequency horns.
The mid-frequency range is reproduced by an Electro-Voice DL 12ST speaker system,
while high frequency reproduction is taken care of by an Electro-Voice DH2T driver with
titanium diaphragm, which is renowned for his excellent vocal definition and crystalclear treble sound. The SPL of 105dB/1W/1m allows almost doubling the throw-capability of conventional direct-radiating loudspeaker cabinets.
Employing at least two Lo-cabinets per side – e.g. two F5 or two F118 – for bass sound
reproduction is recommended to match bass-SPL to the exceptionally high efficiency of
the F9CWH.
F120
By designing its 2-way speaker system F120, DYNACORD set a new standard for professional 12" 2-way cabinets. A sound pressure level of 100 dB, wide coverage and its
excellent sound quality make the F120 equally suitable to be used as full-range cabinet
or as Mid-Hi component in active 2-way applications. When comparing the F120 to conventional 12" 2-way speaker systems, it provides nearly double the throw and power as
well as a convincingly natural reproduction of vocals. An Electro-Voice DL12 BFH 12"
speaker serves a s woofer system while an Electro-Voice DH2T driver with titanium
diaphragm and HT94 Constant Directivity horn provides exceptionally powerful midrange sound and crystal-clear trebles. The newly designed frequency x-over is furnished with halogen lamps and thermal-breakers, which provide reliable protection
against overload. The system-switch on the connection board allows easily configuring
the F120 for full-range operation or connection to DYNACORD system power amps like
the PM 2600 or Xa2600. The carrying handles are prepared for retrofitting a TÜVapproved rigging-kit to allow trouble-free “flying” applications.
47
F150
A professional 15" 2-way cabinet offering optimal
sound, low weight and an outstanding price-performance ratio – that was the challenge for our engeneering. A sound pressure level of 102 dB, wide coverage and its excellent sound quality make the F150
equally suitable to be employed as full-range cabinet or as Mid-Hi component in active 2-way applications offering an convincingly natural reproduction of
vocals.
An Electro-Voice DL15Y 15" speaker serves as
woofer system while an Electro-Voice DH2T driver
with titanium diaphragm and HT94 Constant
Directivity horn provides exceptionally powerful midrange sound and crystal-clear trebles. The newly
designed frequency x-over is equipped with halogen
lamps and thermal-breakers, which provide reliable
protection against overload. The system-switch on
the connection board allows easily configuring the F150 for full-range operation or connection to DYNACORD system power amps like the PM 2600 or
Xa2600. Frontal protection is provided through a robust steel grille that is covered with acoustic foam. The carrying handles are prepared for retrofitting a
TÜV-approved rigging-kit to allow trouble-free “flying” applications.
F5
The F5 is a compact, but yet high-efficiency subwoofer system. An EV DL15Y
woofer works in the optimally vented cabinet, ensuring highest power
handling, efficiency and low distortion. The integrated
passive PowerMax x-over (x-over frequency 160Hz)
features a parallel output and an additional
crossover output offering trouble-free parallel or xover operation when combined with professional fullrange or Mid-Hi cabinets. Reliably protecting the
woofer against critical peak levels and thermal overload are a thermal breaker and professional halogen
lamps. The 4-pole SPEAKON-type connectors
wired-through, allowing active system installations
that employ DYNACORD system power amps
PM2600 or Xa2600 for instance can be set up using
4-pole SPEAKON-type cables, without the risk of
inadvertent mismatching. Four extremely robust castors are located on the cabinet’s rear and four
ergonomically optimised recessed handles facilitate
handling and transportation. Frontal protection is provided through a robust steel grille that is covered with
acoustic foam.
48
F8
The F8 subwoofer marks DYNACORD’s consequent further development of the meanwhile legendary F118. The highly efficient Electro-Voice EVX180B 18" woofer is capable of handling a continuous program power capacity of 500 W offering a peak-SPL of
130dB and lowest non-linear distortion. The integrated passive PowerMax x-over (xover frequency 160Hz) features a parallel output and an additional crossover output
offering trouble-free parallel or x-over operation when combined with professional fullrange or Mid-Hi cabinets. Reliable protection of the Electro-Voice EVX180B woofer
against critical peak levels and thermal overload is guaranteed through a thermal
breaker and professional halogen lamps. The SPEAKON-type connectors wiredthrough, allowing active system installations that employ DYNACORD system power
amps PM2600 or Xa2600 for instance can be set up using 4-pole SPEAKON-type
cables, without the risk of inadvertent mismatching. Four extremely robust castors are
located on the cabinet’s rear and four ergonomically optimised recessed handles facilitate handling and transportation. Frontal protection is provided through a robust steel
grille that is covered with acoustic foam.
F17 PWH
The F17PWH is a highly efficient bass-cabinet with optimally matched dimensions an
enclosure geometry to perfectly complement the F12CWH Mid-Hi cabinet. Its compact
size, castors on the rear as a standard and low weight make the F17PWH the first
choice for medium and long-throw on-the-road applications. Through its high efficiency
of 99 dB (1 W/1 m) and a power handling capacity of 500 watts, the F17PWH accomplishes coverage distances of 60 m – 80 m in two-stack operation and of 120 m – 160
m when stacked in four. The recommended transition frequency to Mid-Hi cabinets is
160 Hz/18 dB/oct. Butterworth or 24 dB/oct. Linkwitz-Riley.

Philosophy
The CORUS PRO Line is the consequent further develop-ment of the CORUS-Line loudspeaker series. Specially
revised frequency x-overs and optimised protection circuitry result in superb sonic performance and electric dependability.
The extremely hardwearing lacquer-finished surfaces and stable steel front-grilles of all CORUS PRO components as
well as the straight frontages and castors of the two big woofer cabinets ensure ultimate transportability. All CORUS
PRO Line full-range models are furnished with pole-mount stand sleeves on the bottom while all woofer cabinets have
pole-mount threaded flanges for the insertion of top-part connection poles on the top. Electrical connection is established
via two Speakon-type NL4 IN/OUT-connectors that are connected in parallel.
All CORUS PRO Line bass cabinets employ passive frequency crossovers that guarantee the trouble-free parallel operation with the full-range cabinets. The transition frequencies between top-part and woofer cabinet are carried out in
PowerMax technology, so that even smaller sound system installations provide exceptionally powerful bass-performance.
CP 12-2
2-Way Fullrange und Mid-High Speaker, 150W
The extraordinary compact, optimally vented cabinet houses a 12” Dynacord woofer and a
Constant Directivity Mid-Hi horn with a nominal radiation angle of 90° x 40°. The CP 12-2 is
universally suitable for small or medium-sized stage sound reinforcement systems. The asymmetrically shaped enclosure also allows using this cabinet in monitor applications, which
require extended bass range sound reproduction.
Furthermore, the CP 12-2 delivers impressive results when combined with a CP 12-1 SUB 12”
subwoofer cabinet or a CP 15-1 SUB 15" subwoofer cabinet. The subwoofers can be connected in parallel without the need for additional frequency crossovers.
CP 12-3
3-Way Fullrange und Mid-High Speaker, 200W
The CP 12-3 is the ideal all-round cabinet. It employs a 12" Dynacord woofer, two 4.5" Mid-Hi
transducers in CMD-configuration (Columnar Midrange Design) and a Constant Directivity MidHi horn with a nominal radiation angle of 90° x 40°. The CP 12-3 offers outstanding intelligibility and precise resolution even in the critical mid range.
The CMD-Design allows for an extremely wide horizontal splay angle of 160°. Combining the
CP 12-3 with a CP 15-1 SUB or CP 18-1 SUB in parallel operation is possible without a problem. Especially when used together with a CP 18-1 SUB and additionally employing a
PowerMax 230 frequency crossover and STANDARD or LINEAR PRECISION Series power
amps, creating active 2-way sound reinforcement installations has never been easier.
51
CP 15-3
3-Way Fullrange-Speaker, 400W
The “fifteen-three” is a true classic among 3-way
full-range loudspeaker systems. It is equipped
with an Electro-Voice DL 15Y 15” woofer, a 10”
Mid-range transducer and a Constant Directivity
horn with a nominal radiation angle of 90° x 40°.
This combination provides fundamental bass and
powerful mid-frequency reproduction as well as
precise and uncoloured treble. Ideal partners for
establishing active 2-way systems are the subwoofers CP 15-1 SUB and CP 18-1 SUB in combination with a PowerMax 230 x-over and STANDARD or LINEAR PRECISION Series power amps.
SUB 800 A
Active 15” Subwoofer, Bassreflex, 800W
The active subwoofer SUB 800 A houses a 15" transducer, an active PowerMax
stereo x-over, and an integrated power amplifier.
Using the SUB 800 A together with a PowerMate or a mixer/power amp combination provides the possibility to easily expand a full-range system into an active
stereo 2-way system with subwoofer.
On the other hand, operating the SUB 800 A connected in parallel with an existing system set-up to provide an extended sub-bass response is possible as well.
The integrated electronic stereo 2-way frequency crossover in PowerMax technology divides the audio signal into Mono-Sub and stereo Mid-High range.
When operated in active 2-way mode, the mid-high signal is outputted via the
SUB 800 A’s Mid-High outputs from where it is fed to the Master Return connectors of the mixer or PowerMate, where it gets amplified. The summed L/RMono-Sub signal is directly fed to the integrated power amp.
The recessed mounted High Efficiency power amplifier provides an output
power capacity of 800 watts, is realised in "Class H" topology and drives an
Electro-Voice DL 15 Y 15" woofer system. This combination provides a maximum sound pressure level of 128 dB/1m.
All well known protect circuitry like audio limiters, TBC, Back-EMF, DC, HF,
Short-Circuit and Thermal Protection are integrated.
The enclosure of the SUB 800 A comes in a black, extremely hardwearing structure lacquer finish. Four large-scale castors on the rear panel and two recessed
metal carrying handles ensure easy handling and comfortable transportation.
52
CP 12-1 SUB
12” Add-On Bass Cabinet, 300W
This bass cabinet in an optimally vented cabinet design provides extended, powerful lowfrequency reproduction and is the ideal add-on-solution for the CP 12-2, the CP 12-3 or
any other small top-parts. It houses a LFT 6008 12” woofer system and a passive
crossover (12 dB Lo-Pass/100 Hz) in PowerMax technology, providing trouble-free parallel operation with CP 12-2 Mid-Hi cabinets. Despite its compact dimensions, the CP 121 SUB provides a re-markable power handling capacity of 300 watts that delivers impressive low-frequency sound reproduction.
CP 15-1 SUB
15” Direct-Radiating Subwoofer, Bassreflex, 400W
The CP 15-1 is furnished with a high-performance Electro-Voice DL 15Y 15” woofer
system making it the ideal choice to supplement CP 12-3 or CP 15-3 in passive system configurations. The integrated passive frequency x-over (12 dB Lo-Pass/100Hz)
in PowerMax technology provides powerful and precise bass sound when combined
with the previously mentioned top-parts.
CP 18-1 SUB
18” Direct-Radiating Subwooferr, Bassreflex, 500W
Employing an Electro-Voice EVX 180 B 18” woofer chassis, this direct-radiating optimally vented subwoofer design provides fundamental reproduction of ultra-low frequencies in exceptionally precise sound quality. Its integrated passive frequency
crossover (12 dB Lo-Pass / 100 Hz) makes the CP 18-1 SUB the ideal choice for passive system set-ups (together with CP 12-3 or CP 15-3) but also for any active 2-way
application when combined with a PowerMax 230 crossover and STANDARD or LINEAR PRECISION Series power amps.
53
AM12/M12
Active 2-Way Universal Speaker System, 360W
The perfect Plug ‘n’ Play monitor-solution for almost any application – the AM
12 is equipped with a LFT 3008 12" Dynacord woofer system and a Constant
Directivity Mid-Hi horn. The integrated full-range power amp in class ”H” technology comes with an ample 300 watts for the Lo-channel and additional 60
watts amp for Hi-channel. Its versatile connections and settings ability (Mic,
Line, and Aux) and in addition to the passive monitor-box M 12 makes the AM
12 perfect choice for any complete monitoring solution as well as for smaller
PA- and multi-media reinforcement applications.
Additional tools are offered in the ACOUSTIC PROCESSING section: The
Lo-EQ is an adjustable LPN-filter controlling the ”punch”, the MID-EQ as a
4kHz DIP-filter allows to adjust the aggressivity of the horn, while the HI-EQ
gives you the control on the ”clarity” of the Highs.
