By PSW Staff • January 14, 2019 The updated Action 500 series from DAS Audio DAS Audio announces the updated Action 500 series, consisting of 8 active and 8 passive loudspeaker models, which include a 12-inch monitor, full-range systems consisting of 8-, 12-, 15- and 2 x 15-inch, and 3 subwoofers. The complete renovation of one of DAS Audio’s most recognized series upgrades both design and physical features—making the systems more compact and lightweight, with a modern design. The Action 508 incorporates a newly designed DAS 8GV transducer and M-34 compression driver. The Action 508A powered version incorporates a new Class D power amplifier—providing higher power, thus optimizing the performance of the system. All full-range systems in the Action series, including the Action 508/512/515 and 525 have new horns that provide improved frequency response on both the vertical and horizontal planes while offering a wider 90 x 60-degree dispersion for room-filling coverage. The horns can be rotated to maintain coverage coherency when used in the horizontal position. The Action 512/512A and Action 515/515A have dual angle pole mounts, 0 and 10 degrees, making it possible to adapt the coverage when needed. All active systems incorporate a mixer with two signal inputs, offering versatility when used by performing musicians, DJs, or any application requiring two sound sources. DAScontrol technology with a rear located LCD screen enables the selection of up to three different presets (Live, Dance, and Monitor) and HPF and LPF filters that optimize the systems when used with subwoofers. The powered systems provide the option of using the logo as a limit indicator, which can easily be seen from the front of the cabinets. The subwoofers of the series, the Action S18 and S218, improve their performance with a new transducer (18FW) designed by DAS Audio. The high excursion transducers achieve clarity and high power in the reproduction of low frequencies. The enclosure, made of birch wood and coated with black ISO-Flex paint, is designed to achieve high durability and resistance to withstand the most demanding environments. DAS Audio’s new Action 500 Series loudspeakers are expected to become available Q2, 2019.
