Y Series

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 emula


The Y7P and Yi7P as well as the Y10P and Yi10P point
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�
