At AES 2004, JBL Professional is announcing the addition of the PD5322/43 to its Precision Directivity' line. The PD5322/43 adds a 40 x 30-degree full-range coverage option to the existing PD5000 offerings.
These large-format horn-loaded enclosures are designed for use in medium to large venues requiring pattern control with uncompromised frequency response in a form not much larger than the largest three-way AE models. In keeping with JBL's reputation for consistency across product lines, the PD5322/43 is voiced similarly to other PD and AE products. In addition, all models share common dimensions for ease of designing compact, high-power arrays and are available in the most popular coverage patterns.
Featured across the PD5000 Series are newly developed 24 by 24-inch PT Progressive Transition' mid-frequency rotatable waveguides that provide pattern control with low distortion and extremely natural sound character. This is an evolution of the waveguide technology of the successful JBL Professional Application Engineered' (AE) install series. The PD5322/43 also incorporates sophisticated, steep-slope passive crossover networks that minimize band overlap, further enhancing off-axis pattern control. User-accessible internal switches allow for a fully active crossover, with JBL providing DSP settings for the Harman Pro DSP platforms including BSS, dbx and Crown.
