d&b Q-Series Line Array Speaker Package - Q1, Q-Sub, D12 Amp Rack - RENTAL ONLY
The Q-Series combines a variety of technologies with remarkable results as well as maintaining the maxims of the d&b System reality. It comprises Q loudspeakers, which are designed for simple deployment in mobile environments or for permanently installed rider driven performance spaces respectively. The Q-Series loudspeakers have conventional rotatable CD horns, dipolar driver arrangements and toroidal wave shaping devices integrated using line array principles. The exceptional Q factor symbolizes the precise dispersion control to very low frequencies and for the size and weight they produce surprisingly high sound pressure levels. These flexible loudspeakers can be effortlessly and scalably combined for a multitude of small to large coherent arrays. They are ideal for situations using numerous open microphones and where considerable gain before feedback is required for speech and music; in theatre, presentations, broadcast productions and orchestral events.
The Q1 is a passive two-way loudspeaker housing two 10" LF drivers positioned in a dipolar arrangement and a 1.3" HF compression driver fitted to a toroidal wave shaping device. The 75° constant directivity horizontal dispersion pattern is maintained down to 400 Hz, while the vertical HF dispersion of 15° allows the Q1 to be used to construct vertical columns that produce a curved coherent wave front. The mechanical and acoustical design of the cabinet enables vertical splay angles to be set between 0° and 14°. Q1 cabinets can therefore be used in vertical configurations starting from two cabinets with a 15° to 30° dispersion, up to twenty cabinets with a fully user and venue defined vertical profile. The Q1 cabinet is constructed from marine plywood, incorporates a pair of handles and has an impact resistant paint finish. The front of the loudspeaker is protected by a rigid metal grill covered with replaceable acoustically transparent foam, and two EP5 or NL4 connectors wired in parallel are mounted on the rear panel.
The Q-SUB is an actively driven low compression bass-reflex loudspeaker fitted with a high excursion 18" driver. d&b SenseDrive technology is available when powered by the D12 amplifier. The Q-SUB is mechanically compatible with the Q1 and Q7; ten sockets in the front grill and side panels for Q-Series rigging components permit use in various combinations, either flown or ground stacked. The Q-SUB cabinet is constructed from marine plywood with an impact resistant paint finish, a pair of handles, four heavy duty wheels and an M20 threaded flange in the top panel to accept a loudspeaker stand. The front of the loudspeaker cabinet is protected by a rigid metal grill covered with replaceable acoustically transparent foam, and two EP5 or NL4 connectors wired in parallel are mounted on the rear panel. Two runners protect the bottom of the cabinet from scratching, these locate in correspondingly shaped recesses in the top panel to prevent movement when stacked. Fittings for securing an optional transport lid are also provided.
The d&b D12 amplifier is a dual channel amplifier incorporating digital signal processors (DSP) to provide loudspeaker specific configurations and functions. It is designed for use with all d&b loudspeakers, has both digital and analog signal inputs as well as link outputs, remote control and monitoring capabilities and sophisticated protection circuits. It utilizes an autosensing switch mode power supply for mains voltages 115 / 230 V, 50 – 60 Hz (optional 100 / 200 V) and has a temperature and signal controlled fan to cool the internal assemblies. It is specifically designed to produce high power into low impedance loads, typically those between 4 and 16 ohms. A user definable 4-band parametric equalizer, and signal delay capability of up to 340 ms are incorporated and can be applied independently to each channel. A signal generator offering pink noise or sine wave program is also included. The D12 uses its Load monitoring and System check functions to ascertain the status of the loudspeaker impedance. d&b System check verifies that the system performs within a predefined condition, whilst d&b Load monitoring enables an automatic and continuous impedance monitoring. Both can determine the status of an LF or HF driver in systems with multiple elements, even if these are crossed over passively. Apart from selectable output configurations for dual channel, mixed TOP/SUB and 2-Way Active mode, the D12 also provides d&b SenseDrive for use with the LF drivers in d&b active loudspeakers and subwoofers and has output connector options. All these functions and parameters can be easily accessed and controlled via the LCD in conjunction with the digital rotary encoder or through the d&b Remote network.
