PreSonus CDL 12 - 2-Way Active Hybrid Constant Directivity Loudspeaker - Single

The PreSonus CDL 12 is a 2-way active hybrid constant directive loudspeaker. Each CDL12 consists of eight 2-inch drivers aligned in a segmented circular-arc high-frequency array centred 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 that the pattern always radiates from the center of the CDL12. This is true whether the CDL12 is used individually on a tripod speaker stand or as part of an acoustically coupled vertical array with up to six enclosures. Because of this, the CDL12 avoids the near-field anomalies that can interfere with the sound quality of a traditional line array. This makes the CDL12 ideally suited for a broader range of venue sizes, creating a far-field response almost immediately as the sound is projected from the center of the enclosure.
