Grund Audio Design has introduced the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors, the latest additions to the GT Series floor monitor product group, with both new models offering two-way, bass reflex and dual angle enclosure designs.
The GT-1220M’s components include a 12-inch high-excursion, low-frequency transducer mated with a 2-inch compression driver that is coupled to a controlled pattern horn, while the GT-1520M offers the same design approach with the exception of being outfitted with a 15-inch woofer.
Both provide 40-degree horizontal and 80-degree vertical dispersion patterns and have 450-watt power handling capability with a nominal impedance of 8 ohms. Frequency response for both models is rated at 50 Hz – 18 kHz. Each enclosure provides two Neutrik NL4 Speakon connectors plus a biamp switch.
Cabinets are multi-ply Baltic birch wood that is heavily braced for cabinet rigidity. Enclosures are available in three standard finishes: black, white, or natural (ready-to-stain). The transducer compliment is protected with a powder-coated, perforated steel grille.
With their dual angle enclosure design, the GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors make it easy to position the loudspeakers for maximum on-stage effectiveness while maintaining a low profile for a clean stage presence. For fixed installations, optional 2 x 2 suspension, 3/8”-16 threaded mounting points are available.
“The GT-1220M and GT-1520M are extremely versatile loudspeaker systems,” said Frank Grund, president of Grund Audio Design. “They provide the articulation and punch required in high SPL performances and their controlled pattern horns enable one to achieve high on-stage SPL levels before feedback.
“In addition to their primary function as floor monitors, both models can serve double duty as general purpose PA loudspeakers. With their integrated pole cups, they can be positioned on floor stands and elevated. Similarly, these loudspeakers can be suspended via optional threaded mounting points—making them a viable choice for fixed installation sound reinforcement purposes.”
The GT-1220M and GT-1520M floor monitors carry MSRP pricing of $1,139 and $1,149, respectively. Both models are currently available.
