d&b Audiotechnik introduced the new MAX2 stage monitor at Prolight +Sound 2015 in Frankfurt. The passive unit can be pole mounted on a d&b subwoofer and used as a small full range system or perform stage monitoring duties as originally intended.
The MAX2 provides a frequency response extending from 55 Hz to 18 kHz with a conical dispersion of 75°. In a marine plywood enclosure and protected by a metal grill, the 15” neodymium LF driver and the coaxially mounted 1.4” compression driver share the same magnet structure which allows for a compact cabinet design.
The MAX2 can be driven by d&b amplifiers using the MAX2 setup or by a linear power amplifier, allowing it to integrate with existing stage monitoring solutions.
d&b product manager Werner ‘Vier’ Bayer commented, “The d&b System reality is about providing optimal acoustic results for audiences and performers. The MAX2 takes inspiration from the original d&b MAX monitor, which appears on stages all around the world. It is the ideal solution for any stage where clarity and consistency are key requirements.”
