     TS  400 – full-range vertical array speaker system

     PSE  215 / PSE 218 – passive subwoofers

Frankfurt / Munich,  March 2012

TS 400 – full-range vertical array cabinet

The TS 400 is  a compact, powerful, and versatile  loudspeaker system for mobile applications and fixed installations. It  can be used either full-range or in active two-way systems for  applications requiring subwoofers, where DYNACORD's PSD 215 and PSD 218  powered subwoofers make ideal companions. Vertical  pattern control is essential if optimal sound quality and  intelligibility are to be achieved in difficult acoustic environments.  The TS 400 was designed to provide very even and smooth coverage over a  very wide bandwidth by using spaced and filtered woofers  as array elements.

The  TS 400’s 2.5-way design places elements at both ends of the speaker  column to maximize the distance between them, thereby ensuring that  greater control  over the low frequency range is retained. The MF- and HF-elements are  placed in the middle of the column for a smooth transition between the  different frequency areas and to achieve further control over the  radiation pattern. Each group of elements has its  own band-pass filter, to optimize the array’s performance and  attenuation 90° off-axis whilst at the same time providing even coverage  of the audience area front-to-rear, where the rate of attenuation is  half that of an "unsteered” cluster. The directivity  of the array is such as to ensure the SPL falls off by only 3 dB each  time the distance doubles, compared with the 6 dB of a conventional  two-way system.

PSD 215 / PSD 218 – powered subwoofers

The PSD 215 (1  x 15") and PSD 218 (1 x 18") are high-powered active subwoofers. Each  is equipped with an integrated two-channel power amplifier and 24-bit  one-into-three DSP controller  boasting 48-bit double-precision internal resolution. These powered  subwoofers therefore supply the ideal foundation for the uncomplicated  construction of powered two-way systems, by eliminating the need for  external controllers and power amplifiers.

The PSD 215 reconciles minimum size  with maximum acoustic output. Largely responsible for this is a 15"  Electro-Voice DVX3159 woofer specially developed for use in compact  subwoofers. Its larger brother,  the PSD 218, is equipped with an 18" Electro-Voice DVX3180  long-excursion chassis and delivers the performance demanded of 18"  subwoofers in professional concert sound applications.

Both  models are armed with a highly efficient dual-channel Class D amplifier  with a nominal output of 2 x 1,000 watts RMS into 4 ohms for highest  quality audio  performance  

PSE 215 / PSE 218 – passive subwoofers

The  PSE 215 and PSE 218 are the passive versions of the PSD subs (i.e. the  versions without integrated power amplifiers and DSP controllers) but  they share  the same dimensions, transducer configurations, and acoustic  characteristics as their powered cousins. They therefore represent the  ideal reinforcements for the active systems in larger venues.

Vertical array systems  – system recommendations

Many  high-performance systems can be created using the PSD 215 and PSD 218  powered subwoofers, the PSE 215 and PSE 218 passive extension subs, and  the TS 400  vertical array cabinets. Optimized system presets are stored in the DSP  engine of the PSD subwoofers.

DYNACORD's  vertical array systems offer plug and play solutions that meet the  requirements of a wide range of mobile applications and fixed  installations, where  their high sound pressure levels, outstanding audio quality, wide  coverage patterns, and exemplary intelligibility – combined with what  are in comparative terms extremely affordable prices – add up to make a  powerful and convincing case.
