PreSonus: CDL12 Loudspeakers

The CDL12 is a self-powered, Dante™-enabled hybrid point source / line array loudspeaker that delivers 120° horizontal by 20° vertical dispersion pattern. It is ideal for musicians as a portable PA or for use in small to midsize installations where high speech intelligibility and solid music reproduction is essential. Featuring CDL (constant directivity loudspeaker) technology, the CDL12 radiates a highly focused pattern with consistent SPL even as the listener moves off-axis.
