Y Series


source loudspeakers both feature the same dipolar arrangement
with two 8″ drivers centered around a 1�4″ HF compression
driver mounted on a CD horn with 75° x 40° and 110° x 40°
dispersion characteristics respectively� A rotatable horn enables
deployment in either orientation, whilst an innovative bass-reflex
and port design gives an increased LF performance� The high
performance omnidirectional B6 and Bi6-SUB feature a single
18″ long excursion driver, intended for ground stacked
applications only�
The Y8 and Y12 and the installation specific Yi8 and Yi12
line array modules also share the same driver arrangement,
with two 8″ dipolar mounted drivers and a 1�4″ HF driver
combined with a central wave transformer� The advanced bassreflex
and port arrangement delivers full bandwidth capabilities
with an extended LF output� Due to the dipolar arrangement of
the LF drivers, a broadband, horizontal directivity control is
maintained down to approximately 500 Hz for the different
dispersion options, 80° for the Y8 and 120° for the Y12�
The arrayable, cardioid Y and Yi both house two long excursion
neodymium drivers, powered by a single amplifier channel�
The 18″ and 12″ drivers arranged in an integrated cardioid
setup, avoid unwanted energy behind the system�
All Y loudspeakers are finished with a PCP (Polyurea Cabinet
Protection) coating that provides mobile systems with protection
against impact and resistance to the adverse effects on cabinets
caused by changing ambient outdoor conditions� The Yi cabinets
feature an impact resistant paint finish; Weather Resistant and
Special Colour options are available�
D80 amplifier
The d&b software offering aides the entire system setup process�
The d&b ArrayCalc simulation software allows the virtual
optimization of loudspeaker line arrays, point source and column
loudspeakers as well as subwoofers and their adjustment to
venue conditions� The d&b NoizCalc immission modelling
software uses international standards to model noise immission
from d&b loudspeaker systems� NoizCalc takes data from
ArrayCalc and calculates the sound propagation towards the far
field� The complete system configuration simulated in ArrayCalc
is assimilated by the d&b R1 Remote control software into
an intuitive graphical user interface to manage the amplifiers,
and loudspeakers, from anywhere in the venue�
d&b amplifiers are specifically designed for use with d&b
loudspeakers, and are at the heart of the d&b system approach�
These devices contain extensive Digital Signal Processing
capabilities to provide comprehensive loudspeaker management
and specific switchable filter functions to precisely target the
system response for a wide variety of applications� The four
channel D80 amplifier is intended for both mobile and
installation applications requiring the highest Sound Pressure
Levels� The installation specific four channel 30D amplifier is
intended for permanent integration within venues which
require medium to high Sound Pressure Levels� These amplifiers
all provide extensive user-definable equalization containing
two 16-band equalizers with parametric, notch, shelving and
asymmetric filters as well as delay capabilities of up to
10 seconds�
The DS10 Audio network bridge provides 16 AES3
outputs and interfaces between the Dante audio transport
protocol and the d&b amplifiers�
The DS100 Signal Engine is based on a specialized
rack mount 3 RU audio processor with Audinate Dante
networking� It provides a 64 x 64 audio matrix with level
and delay adjustments at all cross points� Additional software
modules provide dynamic source positioning and emulated
acoustics functions�
