The CDL that fits your venue AND your budget. The CDL12 loudspeakers impressed ears around the world when we introduced them, thanks in no small part to their unique, patent-pending driver design that fills venues with consistent, articulate speech and music reproduction without sacrificing consistent SPL. Now that same constant directivity performance is available in the new CDL12P, a lighter weight design ideal for touring bands and mobile DJs who want the same scalability and sonic performance in portable design. What’s so great about constant directivity? Like the CDL12, CDL12P is the result of years of research and development, combining the best attributes of point source and line array technology into a unique patent-pending design. Based on the Constant-Directivity Two-Way Loudspeaker System design presented at the 143rd AES Convention in New York by Hugh Sarvis and Don Keele, the CDL12P radiates a highly focused pattern with consistent SPL throughout the frequency response range, both on- and off-axis. The result is clear, articulate speech intelligibility and natural music reproduction. A unique look with a unique result. Each CDL12P consists of 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. Symmetrical dispersion matters. Traditional line array loudspeakers typically place a high-frequency horn on one side of the enclosure and a woofer on the other. To obtain a symmetrical image with those loudspeakers, you'd have to flip one over—something they aren't designed to do in the first place—and you'd still have phase issues. With the CDL12P, the eight 2-inch high-frequency drivers arc over a single 12-inch woofer, comparable to the coaxial driver configuration found on top studio monitors. The result is better sonic coherence across the entire venue. Regardless of how many CDL12Ps you stack, you're working with a shared acoustic axis—and non-turbulent sound propagating throughout the room. Scalable vertical coverage. The CDL12P’s hybrid point source/line array design delivers focused sound with consistent SPL coverage both on- or off-axis, making it an excellent choice for mobile and installed applications. Rigging CDL12P enclosures is made easier thanks to integrated pin-loaded rigging hardware. A dual-angle pole mount is provided, supporting the use of one or two enclosures when pole mounted on a tripod stand, or atop the companion CDL18s subwoofer, allowing the system to adapt to varying audience sizes. The CDL12P’s integrated PDA-1000 500W x 500W Class D power amplifier features onboard DSP presets to facilitate and simplify arrayed configurations.
