The KS212C from QSC, is a single-box powered cardioid subwoofer solution for mobile entertainers, AV production and rental professionals, as well as modestly-sized performance venues. The subwoofer features a 3600W Class-D amplifier module that powers two 12", long-excursion drivers in a dual 6th order band-pass design that creates a cardioid polar pattern with -15 dB SPL attenuation front-to-rear. The unit offers a frequency response of 44 to 104 Hz (-6 dB) with a peak SPL of 132 dB (@ 1m).

Typically, subwoofers are omnidirectional, radiating in all directions. This results in a build-up of low frequencies on-stage and wasted LF energy at the rear of the system. Sound engineers found a way to create a cardioid (heart-shaped) polar pattern, which removes much of the low energy at the rear of the subwoofers. Unfortunately, this system required the use of subwoofer arrays with multiple enclosures, clever placement, and processing of delay and polarity to redirect the energy.

The KS212C provides all the benefits of a cardioid subwoofer array, but without the headache of multiple enclosures and outboard processing. The single subwoofer can be deployed in a vertical or horizontal position and features M20 speaker pole fittings in either position, while the 15mm Baltic birch enclosure features a rugged paint designed for long-life and lasting durability. The rear panel offers a LCD control module with variable crossover and savable and recallable scenes, as well as Intrinsic Correction tuning and loudspeaker management. There are two combo XLR-1/4" inputs and two XLR "Pass-Thru" outputs. The KS212C ships with a locking IEC power cord.

"Was also quieter behind the sub than the front....It was a clean and crisp balance of audio dynamics in the higher volume levels, even for different genres of music....After a song list was sent to the mixer to play, I was totally happy with the sub output not overpowering the mid/highs."

The Yamaha DZR15-D is a Dante-equipped, 2-way powered loudspeaker designed for main/FOH and floor monitor applications. The 2000W Class-D bi-amp powers the 15" woofer and 2" compression driver, which combine to provide a frequency range of 34 Hz to 20 kHz (-10 dB) with a maximum SPL of 139 dB. The rotatable horn allows for vertical or horizontal mounting to further adapt the acoustic dimensions of a venue. The constant directivity horn was designed with the goal of providing smooth, level coverage across the intended coverage area, minimizing roll-off that is common in conventional horn designs.

The on-board 96 kHz DSP processor utilizes Advanced FIR filters for the crossover network and corrective EQ. With the FIR filters, the DZR15-D is able to produce a smooth frequency response for remarkable clarity and sound imaging without phase distortion. The onboard LCD screen allows users to easily navigate the variety of DSP functions, load presets, and adjust PEQ, delay, and routing. The D-CONTOUR is an intelligent multi-band compressor that ensures the DZR15-D's sound stays consistent and clear no matter how hard you drive them. The FOH/Main mode boosts the lower frequencies to compensate for low-end that is typically lost when flying speakers, while the Monitor mode is optimized for floor monitoring application by taming problematic low frequencies that can be enhanced by floor reflection, and smoothing a wide range of frequencies to deliver the clarity professionals demand from their stage monitors.

The rear panel offers two combo XLR-1/4" inputs with XLR thru/outputs and dedicated level controls. A USB port allows for system upgrades and preset configuration and backups. The DZR15-D is equipped with an additional panel with two etherCON connectors (2-in/2-out) for interfacing with other Dante compatible equipment such as other speakers and Yamaha's CL/QL/TF digital mixing consoles.
