Bag End has debuted the first entry in the new Venus series of performance loudspeakers – the CD-15.
The new series of loudspeakers is the smallest and most powerful that Bag End produces. It is capable of accurate sound reproduction, especially for complex transient sound.
TheCD-15 was used on a performance stage at the recent NAMM show. Evan Lazarus, CEO of PazBro, which set up the CD-15 for the stage sound system, described it as “incredibly compact and easy to set up.”
“Mixing on this system is very easy and engineer friendly,” he said. “There was more than enough headroom to handle the demands of the loudest bands, and enough bottom end punch to allow the audience to feel – not just hear – the music.”
Lazarus went on to point out that The CD-15 had enough throw to cover the essential areas, and the speaker’s preset dispersion angle made it fairly easy to handle concrete/glass environment he was mixing in.
“It’s a very engineer-friendly system that works very well in compact spaces.”
The CD-15 features Time-Align technology that assures that acoustical signals are presented to the listener in the same relationship as the electrical signal at the input terminals of the loudspeaker.
The Bag End CD-15 is a lightweight (70 lbs.), powerful (max. peak SPL is 135 dB), professional full-range15-inch two-way loudspeaker with bi amp crossover. The speaker enclosure is made of 15mm 11-ply birch plywood with black RoTex finish; and includes fly points, handles, a stand adapter, and black powder-coated grille. The CD-15 is available as an active bi-amped crossover version or passive crossover version.
