The CADIS system, the new Installation Array from HK AUDIO, was designed first and foremost for versatility. CADIS was developed for installations in theatres, civic and community centers, houses of worship, gymnasiums, conference centers and large meeting halls, as well as outdoor installation projects such as stadiums and theme parks. The Compact Adaptive Installation System, as it is called by its full name, is noteworthy not only for its extraordinary flexibility and sonic performance, but also for the ruggedness of its components. For example, the German-made mid/high unit sports a housing made of polyamide resin, an especially durable, weatherproof space-age plastic. Since injection-molded polyamide resin also happens to be highly antiresonant, it lends itself quite well for the construction of loudspeaker enclosures. The passive CAD 208 mid/high unit is loaded with two 8" midrange speakers, two 1" high-frequency drivers with a concentric double horn and a 2.5-way crossover network. Since the horns have a dispersion angle of 100° x 15100°, it is possible to achieve an excellent horizontal and vertical coverage pattern with just a few units. Sonically, the CAD 208 produces a high degree of speech intelligibility down to the last syllable, yet in spite of its compact size and low weight of barely 16.5 kg it can also be used as a full-range system for background music even without a subwoofer. For the best possible audio performance and coverage pattern, the CAD 208 mid/high unit can also be driven in 3-way active mode with the HK AUDIO FIRNET Controller. The subwoofer designed specifically for the system, the passive CAD 115 Sub, is loaded with a high-performance 15" neodymium loudspeaker that makes a perfect low-end complement to the CAD 208 mid/high units thanks to the quickness of speaker's response and its impulse accuracy. The CAD 115 is also outfitted with rigging hardware and can be situated either above the mid/high units in a flown array, as a separate flown bass array, or in ground-stacking mode. For additional flexibility, other existing subwoofer models in the HK AUDIO Installation Line may be combined with the new CADIS CAD 208. With its unobtrusive yet upscale appearance, the new CADIS system will blend into the interior design of any given structure quite attractively. Black and white models are both kept in stock as standard offerings, and versions in any RAL color can be special-ordered. The cabinets include several features which make installation easy and quick: the same integral 3-point rigging system as the COHEDRA COMPACT Line Array, the low cabinet weight, and the choice of connection terminals. The UV-resistant weather resistant construction and the IP 44 classification make CADIS an excellent choice for outdoor installations or other high-humidity locations such as indoor swimming pools. The rigging hardware, which has been safety-tested according to rigorous German standards, permits array sizes of up to twenty-four CAD 208 mid/high units. This allows extraordinary installation flexibility, as the same system can be configured in the most diverse ways, yet perfectly appropriately for each individual project. Simulation software and requisite EASE data are included with the CADIS system. And of course CADIS is 100% made-in-Germany!
