New EVENT-26A and EVENT-115A loudspeakers will be introduced as the latest members of the DAS Audio EVENT Series at the upcoming NAMM 2020 show in Anaheim (meeting room #17224). The loudspeakers are debuting at 11:30 am on January 16, and attendees can also hear two demos each day of the show at 11:30 am and 3 pm.
The EVENT-26A is a 2-way, symmetrical, compact, self-powered line array with double 6.5-inch drivers in a “v-shaped” configuration designed to provide uniform 100-degree horizontal coverage. Additional aspects include an injected polypropylene cabinet, Powecon in/out connectors, and DSP presets with DASControl.
Audio power is provided by a 2-channel class D amplifier stated to supply 800 watts (peak) that also includes a 24-bit DSP that enables all the processing needed, such as crossover, presets, delays, limiters and FIR filters for a more flat phase response and enhanced dynamic headroom. An EVENT-26A array configuration can range from four to 16 cabinets.
The EVENT-115A is a wooden cabinet (birch plywood) compact self-powered front-loaded bass reflex subwoofer that uses a single 15-inch low-frequency transducer specifically designed for use with the EVENT-26A and compatible rigging hardware to be flown. Power comes from a class D amplifier rated to deliver 1,200 watts (peak). The 15FW4 transducer is designed to provide long-excursion and to minimize distortion. An LCD screen with the DAScontrol interface simplifies preset selection.
The IP43-rated EVENT-26A and EVENT-115A will begin shipping in February 2020.
